Bits and Pieces
Nick has a picture up at Radiation persuasion of a crab sculpture
, I believe from the Baltimore airport. For some reason I find it awesome. Go check it out. Remember if you click on the picture you can see the larger version.
Scott sent me this wacky New York Times article
about a shopkeeper testing a prototype that generates high-pitched noises outside his store to keep away "surly teenagers." Apparently older people can't hear these noise but younger people can, and the shopkeeper doesn't want the younger people loitering in front of his store. The inventor insists that medium-aged people whom the shopkeeper wants as shoppers don't loiter enough in front to be bothered. Since the shop in question is a convenience store, it's possible that medium-aged people won't care. But if it was a shop that depended on curb appeal, I certainly wouldn't walk in.
