These are my links for October 30th through December 20th:
- The Theory of Honest Signaling – A nontechnical introduction.
- Exploratorium: Science Snacks About Perception – A gallery of try-it-yourself perception experiments.
- Brownie Points – Beet Marshmallows – Beet powder, allspice, orange oil, and a little maple syrup, all in marshmallow form. The cook dusted them with a little more beet powder to look like blood clots and served them up as “tissue samples” for Halloween – brilliant!
- LivingSmall – Greenwashing Our Valley – What’s wrong with the Ameya development.
- Tigers & Strawberries – Is Alice Waters an Elitist Food Snob? – “What I took to be a bunch of liberals reacting to the recent full moon in a bizarre fit of sudden onset Tourette’s Syndrome is actually a case of a bunch of folks filled with liberal guilt all trying to defend their food choices all at the same time.”
