Fascinating view of the past and very easy to navigate!

You can download pdf maps once you find the time you are interested in :-)

This makes so much sense ...

"The more calories we lock away in fat tissue, the fewer there are circulating in the bloodstream to satisfy the body’s requirements. If we look at it this way, it’s a distribution problem: We have an abundance of calories, but they’re in the wrong place. As a result, the body needs to increase its intake. We get hungrier because we’re getting fatter."

Are we fat because we overeat, or do we overeat because we’re fat?

+Kelly m, I've heard somewhere that many airlines (in the US?) reset their prices mon or tue so the best prices in a given week are often tue/wed.

I'm not sure why they can't be adjusting more frequently, given what processing power is these days. I guess they're not too worried about arbitrage since most tickets aren't transferable ...

Does anyone know an alternative to http://searspartsdirect.com?  In particular, I'm looking for craftsman lawnmower parts.

I've only ordered from there twice, but neither time things ship as scheduled.  They have a same-day-shipping guarantee that they don't honor when they don't ship.  Turns out they don't stock parts, but just act as a middleman to the OEM vendor.

This is nice.  Not sure why it's a GIF instead of something that someone can pause like a youtube video.  Just means I have to watch it many times to see all changes :-)

"I am a strong supporter of net neutrality." -- Barack Obama

Very disappointing change. This will likely hurt our future competitiveness and prosperity as a country.

There's a new We the People petition (because obviously the previous one that got 100K+ signatures and received a WH response essentially in agreement did absolutely nothing to compel the FCC to actually rule that way): https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/maintain-true-net-neutrality-protect-freedom-information-united-states/9sxxdBgy

It's worth another shot.

+Bradley Voytek talks about how passion can be harmonious, obsessive, and maybe a little related to competence.

These are all things I figured out on my own, mostly because I am terrible about answering my own email.
William hasn't shared anything on this page with you.
