Helioseismology / Listening to the inside of the Sun MP3

Although in general I have tremendous faith in science, there are a few concepts I’ve always had some trouble grasping. For example, textbooks have told us for decades—with great certainty—details about the interior of the Earth. We know how thick the crust and mantle are, what the core is made of, and how hot it is (among many other facts), even though no one has managed to dig or drill even hal... Source: itotd.com

    Muffin Tops / Bottomless enjoyment MP3

    It’s all about dedication. In the course of my research for Interesting Thing of the Day, I have sometimes gone to great lengths to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the articles I write. If that means drinking absinthe or eating doughnuts or trudging through Paris museums, well, these are the sacrifices a responsible journalist must make. I even enlisted my wife’s assistance to undertake a tediou...

  • The Charles Atlas Dynamic-Tension Fitness Course / Isometric blast from the past

    The Charles Atlas Dynamic-Tension Fitness Course / Isometric blast from the past MP3

    I’m not what you’d call a “fitness freak.” I’ve spent enough time in gyms to know how the machines work and experience the sensation of building up a sweat, and I like to do t’ai chi. I also live on a San Francisco hill, so I get an aerobic jolt just walking home from the subway. But working out for its own sake is not really my idea of a good time. My disenfranchisement with e...

  • Pastis / The noble successor to absinthe

    Pastis / The noble successor to absinthe MP3

    It’s all Peter Mayle’s fault. Before I fell under his nefarious influence, I had very simple tastes. Food was food; a burger and fries eaten on the run was a perfectly satisfactory dining experience. But then I read A Year in Provence and its sequels, books that tell colorful tales about ordinary life in the southern French countryside. To hear Mayle describe life in Provence, every waking hour is conc...

    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...

  • Icewine / How a little frost can do wonders for wine

    Icewine / How a little frost can do wonders for wine MP3

    I may not be the most agriculturally sophisticated person in the world, but I always felt pretty confident in my basic belief that frost was a Bad Thing when it came to growing produce. If whatever crop you’re growing hasn’t been harvested by the time temperatures dip below freezing, serious damage can be done, right? Common sense, however, frequently turns out to be wrong. At least for grapes, freezing...
