If Detroit formally declares bankruptcy,  treasures in the Detroit Institute of Arts may be sold. That would be controversial. Many affluent suburbanites hate the idea. The suburbs that encircle Detroit are politically separate: suburbanites neither pay city taxes nor send their kids to crumbling city schools. But they do like to visit the art museum from time to time

2. Hit enter and click on a blank page to take a quick note. 

Now you have built in notepad in your your browser.

We all uses notepad or sticky note or some editor to take immediate notes on something like phone number, code snippet. Recently i came to know that we can use our browser just like notepad. The trick hacks around Data URI scheme and html contenteditable attribute.

Daniel Dennett's Memetics: Intuition Pumps and Other Tools of Thinking

Dennett doesn't say "memes", but he means it: transferable, mutable, reflexive, rhetorical constructs/devices: installable software for the human mind. Instead he says/coins "Intuition Pumps" because that is a better way to sell books.
