It’s Friday! Each week I present favorite items gathered from my tweet stream which are funny, awe-inspiring, beautiful, and sometimes odd. Enjoy!
@pourmecoffee “I’m going to be disappointed if the Occupiers all take sweet jobs as ‘Special Liaison to the Poor’ for Goldman Sachs.”
@petapixel Incredible photograph of the Milky Way rising over the sea
[SEO: Be sure to read the photographer’s notes below the photograph, which explain how he made this out of a composite of five shots, and discusses certain visible stars.]
@AncientProverbs “An inch of time cannot be bought with an inch of gold.” ~ Chinese Proverb
@PeterSokolowski Great story about mysterious ornate book sculptures left as gifts in library.
[SEO: Kind of a long story, but it’s illustrated and delightful!]
@Carlolight “All descriptions of reality are temporary hypothesis.” ~ Buddha
@dangerroom Who are you rooting for, the giant robotic snake or the man-sized spider-bot?
[SEO: These are fascinating, in an icky kind of way. It’s hard to get a sense of size till the end of the video, when you see a guy looking kind of small while riding on top of the spider. Ewww ]
@natasha_tracy “When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.” ~ Henry J. Kaiser
@AmazingPics If you haven’t seen it yet, get ready to be amazed: Stunning View of Earth from Space
[SEO: I’ve previously posted only snippets; I had no idea it was expanded to five minutes elsewhere. And yes, you will be amazed. I especially like — amongst other things — viewing lightning strikes from above.]
@Elywyn_AO “If you aren’t confused by quantum physics, then you haven’t really understood it.” ~ Niels Bohr
@BlissCoach1 “Procrastination is a bad habit which is best put off until tomorrow.” ~ Ivan Kelly
