Defog your windshield faster with science!
By Peter Karlsen [ Tue Jan 12 2016 6:32 AM ]
Here we have a former NASA engineer who explains the optimal technique for defogging the windows in your car, as well as how and why it works. It's probably less effective than my technique of not breathing at all, but some people may have a longer morning commute than I do.

The Daily Word in alien license plates, the religion of Cher and gerbils causing the plague
By Amelia Olson [ Tue Feb 24 2015 10:35 AM ]
It's Tuesday and the sun is shining here in Albuquerque. JK! It's freezing.
It’s snowing! It’s snowing! CLOSE ALL THE SCHOOLS! CANCEL WORK!
You’re chewing too loud! Apparently there is a name for the feeling of rage you experience when the person next to you is breathing too loud.
Rats are not to blame for the Black Death! A new study suggests gerbils are the actual culprits in the “second plague pandemic.”
Feeding your baby peanut butter might prevent her from serious nut allergies in the future. Peanut butter for the win! PS. Don’t try this at home.
Cher calls out Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson for vetoing a bill that would allow for more LGBT anti-discrimination laws. Like we needed any more reasons to worship Cher.
New Mexico wants to offer license plates that have anything from aliens to horned lizards on them. Duh. Let them do it.

The Last Station
Period biopic mixes the lusty with the literary
By Devin D. O’Leary
Late in life (in his 70s), widely famed Russian novelist Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy (known to his friends as “Leo Baby”) turned his attentions away from fiction and dabbled in the creation of a number of utopian communes. These live/work communes were based on Tolstoy’s own particular philosophy—one that espoused nonviolence, the abolition of private property, a strict vegetarian diet and an adherence to the principals of celibacy. (Yeah, sorry, Leo Baby, but you lost me on that last one.) Though the Tolstoyan Movement didn’t last very long, it allegedly influenced the thinking of such latter spiritual leaders as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
