This plane geometry game is epic nice. I've built similar things for myself in the past, but the implementation here is top notch.
Euclidea is all about building geometric constructions using straightedge and compass. About doing it the fun way. With Euclidea you don't need to think about cleanness or accuracy of your drawing — Euclidea will do it for you. But it's also a game. A game that values simplicity and mathematical ...

This evening I was searching around for evidence of people doing simple graphics stuff with Clojure, and found this likable article:
http://www.learningclojure.com/2010/09/graphics-like-its-1979-how-to-get.html

The screenshot is of a comment at the top of the source code the author shared. I laughed, I hope you do to.

Introduction
I'm interested in music, math, computers, and early childhood development.

I'm going to continue to think the un-thunk.
