    Planning Your Own Funeral / Having the last laugh first MP3

    When my mother returned from a vacation to Florida with her sister a number of months ago, I called to ask how it went. “Oh, we had the best time!” she said. “We spent most of the trip planning our funerals.

    Ventless Clothes Dryers / Laundry without the hot air MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old!

    Revenge of the Analog Clock / Time for a pie chart MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! Author Douglas Adams famously made fun of earthlings for being “so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.” Shortly before he died, Adams gave a talk at the University of California, Santa Barbara (not far from his home), at the end of which there was a brief question-and-a...
