As a follow-up on my earlier post with pictures of a yellow crocheted bead and cube (which at some point got quite some visitors from a knitting and crochet group on yahoo, if I remember well) I present you another cube in crochet.
This time with pictures of the making-of! Let me know if you made one yourself.

If you thought that everything healthy is dull and/or tastes bad, think again:
singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness and a better sense of humor.
Brian Eno on This I believe
Bonus Youtube video, because laughing is also very healthy:

What is the Large Hadron Collider? Rapper science writer Kate McAlpine explains:
LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
And the things that it discovers will rock you in the head.

Hydrogen, hydrogen, atomic number one
Oh what a bang it is to be the fuel inside the Sun!

I try to ease back into blogging… first a new design, then an easy post that was still in the Drafts folder, and now another one of those lolcat-pictures. Because it’s a quantum joke.

It’s two weeks until official pi day (3/14), but here’s a treat: the website pi10k lets you pick 10 notes to represent the figures 0 through 9, and then plays the first 10.000 digits of pi for you.
For those who like their pi songs without words…
