Friday Fun Links 1-28-13

I'm trying to learn how to use Twitter now, so I'm still learning this whole hashtag thing.  However, I know enough to know I love #middleearthpublichealth

This guy changes music based in a minor scale in to music based on a major scale.  While it likely makes hipsters cry, I found it fascinating.

Statistics, it's all fun and games until someone gets accused of using data to aid an international conspiracy against Greece.

Have I ever told you I'm one of the few people under 35 who actually knows how to use a slide rule?  Well I am.  Oh hey, here's one now!

I don't know why I found this so interesting, but here are the most searched for out of print books in 2012.  Good job Madonna, still #1.


  1. Always loved my slide rule. Your grandfather gave me a circular one and I practically wore it out. I got so used to the circular one that when I tried a straight one a few years later, I got completely confused! Glad you know how to use one (I don't think I taught you!)

  2. I never learned to use a slide rule. I wonder how life might have been different?

    Loved the music videos.

  3. I loved my pretty circular slide rule. Wish I had kept it.
