how well do you know the presidents? 

Think you're pretty knowledgeable, huh? Think you've got your American history down pat? Ok then. Identify the president by their haircut.

I only got 3 out of 7. No pride left here.

more origami goodness 

The NYTimes has an article on an MIT professor in the new field of origami mathematics. There's also a link to his own website. I still need to give the article a thorough reading, but it looks intriguing.

you say unpopular, I say unique 

Go find your name in the BabyNameVoyager. See how popular (or not) it's been in the US over the past 100+ years. it's a very cool interface -- overlapping layers showing multiple names at once, narrowing down as you type in more letters.

oh yeah -- mine's on an upswing, tho it had its peak back in the 1950's. it's never cracked the top 500, so it's fairly uncommon but not uberfreakish, which is just the way i like it.

for when the weather is better 

I am inspired by the concept of FlipWalks -- where you let the flip of a coin determine which direction you shall walk at every intersection. Seems like a good way of discovering neighborhoods you never knew about. I think i'll wait til after the blizzard season is over tho.
