The Story of Doughnuts / The truth, the hole truth . . . MP3

Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! In the mid-1990s, I visited Las Vegas for the first time. I was there for an internet conference, and a friend of mine who had been there many times took it upon himself to show me all the standard tourist sites and make sure I got the complete Las Vegas experience. We walked down the Strip, taking in the obligatory pirate sho... Source: itotd.com

    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...

    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...

    Rise of the Bagel / The hole truth MP3

    I love Friday mornings. It used to be that I looked forward to Fridays simply because they were the last work day of the week. Then I began working for an employer with the wonderful tradition of providing free bagels and cream cheese for the entire company every Friday morning. They were good bagels, too. Not only was this a great incentive to get to work on time, it put me in a proper frame of mind to be productiv...

    Demosthenes' Stones / Improving your diction, Athenian style MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! It’s a good thing I had never heard of Demosthenes when I was a child. I would have gotten in trouble. My mom would have said, “Don’t talk with your mouth full.” And I would have replied, “Don’t you want me to be a famous orator like Demosthenes? I’m training!” And then I woul...

    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...
