Feat of Plaster: 1924 — A rather strange image from the always-interesting Shorpy.

The Kalinin K-7 prototype, circa 1933 — An extremely improbable looking bit of pre-WW II Soviet aviation courtesy of x planes. I especially like the Flintstones’ landing gear.

In case you missed it, NASA announces a very strange terrestrial life form with interesting implications for exobiologyxkcd comments on this.

Yet Another Example of Someone Pretending the “Internet” Makes Normal Economic Laws New and Special — Andrew Wheeler is hilariously sarcastic.

    The strangest thing about the Shorpy photo is that I have no idea who this Walter Johnson person was (I guess a baseball player judging by the clothes), even though back in 1924 someone considered him famous enough to cast several dozen plaster statues of the man.

    Question of the day: No bacon, thank you. I can’t stand the stuff.
