Why is English is a Germanic language? Two words: vocabulary and grammar. Suck it, Frenchie!
  This chart shows the lexical distance — that is, the degree of overall vocabulary divergence — among the major languages of Europe. The size of each circle represents the number of speakers ...

From what I hear, they would be reasonably happy to do so.

Not so sure about the Germans.

Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls...
It was clear from the first chords of their 1977 debut album that the Clash were more than just a punk band. Their politically charged lyrics combined with their hunger for new rhythms gave them an unparalleled ability to cre...

Fabio di Donato, "Around Saturn".
A moving film edited from the more than 200,000 still images taken by the Cassini-Huygens space probe between 2004-2012 and accompanied by Dmitri Shostakovich's "Jazz Suite No.2: VI. Waltz 2".

Banding peregrine falcon chicks in Savanna, Illinois. And something about some river.
Whirl has never seen the Mississippi River. This seems like a horrible oversight when you consider the following facts: the Mississippi River forms the western boundary of Illinois for 550 miles; W...

Very cool. I was thinking about a different Savannah, though. :-)

Los Angeles-based comedy writer Jason Sereno wrote this fake Sun-Times ad and posted it on Craigslist late Thursday afternoon. The Craigslist post is in response to the Sun-Times laying off its entire photography department Thursday.

Quick question: What is an aperture? Answer: Who gives a shit? Due to changes in the media landscape and an unwillingness to pay professional photographers for full-time employment, The Chicago Sun-Times is searching for iReporters to cover a wide variety of subjects and events around the city.

REM's 'Losing My Religion' digitally reworked into a major scale. This is not a cover. The song remains as familiar as always; the impact is profoundly different.

Another post about the financial challenges facing the Field Museum. Of some interest is the note toward the end: "Let the Museum and its Board know that you support science. Outcry by the scientific community and public can work– it saved the Smithsonian’s Conservation and Research Center a decade ago from a similarly ill-advised cost-saving refocusing of mission."
I’ve lived in Chicago for more than 25 years, and have watched the Field Museum’s public exhibits degenerate from an educational experience to an entertainment experience. This isn&#821...

Musical Hairsplitting Visualized: Douglas Coupland defined musical hairsplitting as: "The act of classifying music and musicians into pathologically picayune categories. (e.g. The Vienna Franks are a good example of urban white acid folk revivalism crossed with ska.)" 100 Years of Rock takes that task and makes it visual. Kudos for getting Heavy Metal right.
Watch the development of rock music unfold and listen to it's musical influence over the past century.
