Odds and Ends of Interest
If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good. ~ Dr. Seuss
There are some nifty sites I've been slowly compiling over time thinking "oh, I've got to blog about those" and, well, it occurs to me that most of them are groovy, but don't necessarily need their own individual entries. They do, however, need their own category. So that is what Groovy will represent. Interesting stuff that is worth a look, but that doesn't necessarily generate a great deal of comment otherwise.
First, the obligatory Google Maps. I'm not sure if this is a Volcano in Nicaragua or what, but if it is a volcano, there appears to be a lake inside it and I think that rocks.
But, if we're going to talk rocks, here is The Balanced Rock Art of Bill Dan. You remember building houses out of cards? Yeah, well this guy pretty much buries balancing uniformly sized objects.
And speaking of balancing -- want to know what happens when you give seniors at Texas Tech University way too many pennies? Visit fincher's Pictures of Pennies and find out.
Now, this next might be hard to swallow at first, but a friend of mine who scouts the network54 message boards dug up a forum topic about the Color Photos of World War I. More of the story of these incredible photos can be read here.
Now, for a bit of wicked inappropriate fun, you should visit Sexual Moments in Video Game History. Surely the programmers didn't intend...or did they?
And, finally, for a twisted way to look at song lyrics, you need to visit quantz's livejournal entry on song lyrics in outline form. The outline of America's "Horse With No Name" kills me.
