    HAIL SAGAN!!!

    I love YouTube.

    This is, to me, reminiscent of the first determination, in 1676, that the speed of light is finite, through quantitative measurements. Ole Romer only used one tool as well (telescope); the rest was imagination and mathematics.

    Ole RÝmer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not bad figuring either. Technology never trumps genius.

    These Kids Power Their School by Running Up and Down the Hallway

    The family that lives above me could make a fortune if they installed these in their unit.

    I finally finished reading Permanent Present Tense: The Unforgettable Life of the Amnesic Patient, H. M.: Suzanne Corkin: 9780465031597: Amazon.com: Books last week.

    This book is a pretty dry read. It's almost entirely a straightforward account of the various tests this doctor and others performed on Henry Gustave Molaison following his ill-fated lobectomy and the conclusions they drew from them, and even these accounts fall a little short. They are too detailed to be of interest to a casual reader like me, and sometimes not given suitable context as to their importance or uniqueness. The end result is a book that is interesting only due to its subject matter, lacking in personal connection and wanting for clarity. If you have a specific interest in the recent history of human brain memory studies, it's certainly worth a look, but if you were looking for a more personal story of the life of one who became a key figure for medical research, a better book is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks: Rebecca Skloot: 9781400052189: Amazon.com: Books (which, granted, is also as much about the author and the family of the subject).

    On the plus side, I did learn a few things, the most useful being about the sometimes-long recovery time of elderly patients to general anesthesia. Just that nugget of knowledge is helping me deal with my grandma after a surgery.
