A handful of fun things that shouldn't pass unremarked:

  • Natalie Wolchover, an aspiring science writer, has started a fun blog called Facto Diem. For those of you who didn't attend Catholic school, that's Latin for "Fact of the Day." (Or a close enough facsimile.) I didn't even know there were that many facts in the world!

  • In the more venerable sections of the blogosphere, Chad Orzel is running a poll concerning the most amazing application of lasers. Considering that "death ray" is not among the options, it's a pretty good list.

  • We should also link to Scientia Pro Publica #27, over at Melliferax. (Clearly Latin is the lingua franca of the science blogosphere.) Most of the posts involve living things in some way or another, but they should nevertheless be of interest to those of us with more inorganic inclinations.
