Self-aware. Self conscious. Self induced.

Links, 12 April, 2013

I’d like to say that the links here are particular to Berlin and uniquely interesting in that way, but they’re not. Which is not to say that they’re not good, they are. Simply not profoundly German or anything.

First up is this very cool map of North American dialects. I haven’t made my way through the whole thing systematically yet, but it looks engrossing and intriguing.

Next up is some three-dimensional art from Keng Lye, who alternates layers of clear resin with acrylic paint. The affect is pretty spectacularly realistic. More at deviantArt (click the picture to go to his page there).

From nature, lightning bolts spiking out of an erupting volcano’s ash cloud. How is that not amazing?

Here’s a quick blurb on the stuff that makes up a can of Coca-Cola. Not a horrifying take at all! Seriously!

Lastly, here’s a video of a great science experiment (that’s twice for Colossal today!) showing what happens when you direct a 24hz sine wave at a stream of water. Even cooler is the end of the two-ish minute video, when you run it at 23hz. Watch the whole thing.

I’m hoping to get back up to speed posting links on Saturdays. Then again, I’m also hoping to get back to writing the folk tale three times per week. We’ll see how this all pans out.
