Thoughts and Links 12/9 Edition

It's been a while since I did one of these. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. Mine started out on a down note, but things are looking up.

  • Santa Claus' Gmail account is busy this time of year. Seems he might make his own naughty list.
  • StateStats is very cool. I like this analysis of the biking search term. Interesting that Vermont ranks so highly.
  • I found it funny that this article hit the top of Twitter. What a joke.
  • This is a neat little site. It tracks your own personal light cone. If you don't like being reminded of your age this isn't for you.
  • From the Product - A perfect analysis of why winter sucks when you live in a city.
  • Emily comes through with another great post, this time it's a video she found. Watching things in super slow motions gives you a completely different perspective.
  • In case you need to add additional calories to your diet over the holiday season, Orangette offers up a recipe that makes my mouth water.
  • The second to last paragraph in this article made me want to slap someone. You would think anyone who doesn't drive a car is suspect.
  • Finally, if you could purchase tunnels under London, what would you do with them?

Edit: I couldn't wait to share this with all of you. This photo of the Mendota Bridge is amazing. Via
