...And Finally

In the 'just daft enough to work column': This Insane Chinese Concept Train Doesn't Need To Stop At Stations To Pick Up Passengers, from Business Insider. Not only will this make the trains a lot more energy efficient and easier to keep on time, it’s going to make for some really original and horrifying accidents for the news.

At an MIT blog called Theory CSAIL that Eddie Awad tweeted about, this interesting item on random bits (in some depth, it is from MIT, after all): Can you tell if a bit is random?

From News 44, this item on a guy who is doing the whole Nazca lines thing that you can only see from above...only in snow...with his feet. Pretty cool stuff: It Looks Like A Crazy Guy Just Walking Around In The Snow. Then You Zoom Out And.. Whoa.

At this holiday season I know a lot of you are reaching deep down there in the pockets to help people in need. With the continuing state of the world and the economy they need help more than ever. As always, I recommend Modest Needs, a low overhead charity that helps people directly by paying off a key bill, that one that is the straw that breaks the camel’s back, the car repair that jeopardizes work, the terrible choice of paying the rent OR the utilities. Please consider contributing.

A few items from one of my favorite non-business blogs, io9:
