Happy friday!

» They Thought You’d Say This

Some of the most obscure and odd translation phrases ever.

» NewsMap

“Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator.”

It’s a neat way to look at current news items (I think.)
Can take a bit to load but certainly interesting once it does.

» Lego Church!

[Did I mention I am not religious?]

» 10 x 10

Topical image-indexing resource. Looks at numerous indexes of news and other images to cross-reference by country, topic, headline, etc. (Similar to Flickr, but different.) Could eat up a lot of time. But fun! And interesting!

Have a most excellent weekend.

» King Tut’s face

In case nobody saw this yet, several archaeologists did a digital reconstruction of King Tut’s face based on CT and MRI imaging of his skull. It’s a pretty lifelike rendering. National Geographic has the exclusive on the results. Interestingly: one team of imagers was not told who the person was and came up with an almost identical face in terms of structure, shape, features, etc.

» Portable Rotary Phones

Has a genuine bell ringer and is a real mobile phone. Yikes!
