I've been informed by both Eric and Irrelephant that I was guilty of inadvertent plagiarism in my last post. Apparently a laser-eyed Lincoln Memorial has already been done. On Ren and Stimpy.
Truly, I am standing on the shoulders of giants.
At any rate, Mea Culpa.
I've thought all my life that Mea Culpa meant "I'm sorry." I learned a couple years ago, from a Frank McCourt book I think, that it actually means "I'm guilty." A subtle but profound difference.
Oh, you nutty, nutty Catholics.
Random gleanings from the web.
Crayon physics. The goal is to move the ball to the star. How? Drop rocks. Make levers and ramps. Axles and wheels. Catapults. The demo is free. You will waste hours on this. You have been warned.
Random kitten generator. Pretty self explanatory. And cute.
The Megapenny Project. Explains really big numbers visually, using pennies. And cows. I think I stole this from Bad Astronomy.
EtherPad. Collaborative real time text editing. A little geeky, but very cool for on-line collaboration.
