It’s Educational

1954_eighthgrade

That’s just the first page of a 100-question test given to an eighth-grade class in 1954 USA. Be sure to check out the rest and see if you can answer them with present-day figures. While the question remains whether or not this was an open book test, and I wonder about the ultimate utility of the information the kids had to memorize, from the comments on the source it is apparent that our present-day eighth graders are not receiving this level of civic/government education.

The T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. Project

Oh the joys of the Twinkie.  The T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. Project is mad old (1995) but still very relevant.

Have a look

Burn otherwise productive time

marine-traffic

Sorry for the confusing title but, I found this link because I clicked on a link that said just that “marinetraffic.com is a fun way to burn otherwise productive time.”  The whole you-could-be-spending-your-time-better thing was little too sanctimonius, Marine Traffic on the other hand is awesome.  Click on a ship in the sea, and you can get pics, routes, and all other goodies.  If you’re thinking about going the way of the pirate, this is a necessary resource.

Burn some productive time people, burn it

hats off to mocoloco

The new design for Mocoloco is pretty nice, as they have incorporated some intelligent forms of navigation. I really enjoyed the ability to scroll left to right with my scroll wheel, as well as the option to change the navigation from top to bottom. Check it out. There are probably a few more tricks so explore and report.

Girls in Front of Art

This site is in no way safe for work.

Kudos on the design and taking our Artorialust/Hot Chicks at Art Openings concept to an entirely different level.

Have a look if you like naked chicks and your co-workers approve

Just like Michael Jordan getting cut from his High School Basketball Team, Andy Warhol was rejected from the Moma early on.  The great site Letters of Note, has said rejection letter.  See it here
