helping out that 6 degrees of separation 

My friend Matt has been travelling the globe interviewing people about their Weber grills. He's the one on the left in the red sweater who doesn't say anything during the videos. And he's much funnier than these videos would suggest. :)

blogging is more fun than working on a saturday... 

If you're tired of states & countries, but want more mapping games, how about sticking a little closer to home?

The BBC has a whole bunch of interactive games where you can figure out where everything fits in your body -- organs, muscles, bones and bits of the nervous system. They even have it broken out by gender. so cool!

it hasn't even been an hour 

and already a coworker has been asking me for details on how a new Pope gets elected. So i'm going to collect a few links.

  • Catholic-Pages.com: How is the Pope elected?
  • Slightly more detailed recap at PopeChart.com
  • A similar rundown from Time Magazine
  • Gotta include wikipedia's take on this
  • Universi Dominici Gregis: On the Vacancy of the Apostolic See and the Election of the Roman Pontiff (official document from 1996)
  • Timeline of the popes
  • How the Papacy works, from howstuffworks.com

    I guess i'm a rebel at heart 

    I found a link to Banksy that talked about how he managed to hang his own artwork in some of the top NY museums. And that's pretty darn cool -- especially since some of the art managed to stay up for a couple of days.

    but what i really like is his graffitti art. He's got a rats motif going on , and one with some bobbies chasing a stick figure (4th pic on page) that made me giggle madly.
