pockets of the internets

i dont do this very often, but i've been building up a collection of cool links which dont necessarily warrant entire entries on their own.   so, check out these fun corners of the internet if you have some time to enjoy:

- if you want to know what it's really like to live in australia, check out 26 daily occurrences in australia.  all totally true.

- for a fantastic digital representation of time, please visit here is time.  very well done site.

- i havent actually read any of these, but the NY Times recommends these science books.  i've wanted to read quiet by susan cain and the power of habit by charles duhigg for a while.   let me know what you think of any you have read.

- my birthday is on may 26th, in case you needed an idea.   i also really like hand-written notes and postcards!  (thanks, ST ;)

- we all could learn a lesson from this couple on how to let loose and have fun!  also, i chose the second song last weekend for a (too late) evening of karaoke with friends!

- if you've ever wondered why the sky is blue (spoiler: it's not because it reflects the ocean), listen to our titanium physicists podcast on this question and also, what skies on other planets might look like!

- i was wondering why so many people were finding this blog by searching for "space whale."   i think i finally found the answer, but i can't believe it.
