Lazy Linking, 46th in an Occasional Series


Stuff I liked lately on the Internets:

46.1. The silver lining that the Rapture didn't happen this past weekend? If it did, it would have had a really bad effect on an already slumping housing market.

46.2. Who would be more astounded - Aristotle seeing a 1975 calculator, or anyone from 1975 seeing a modern-day iPhone? As they say, the change of change is getting faster.

46.3. Survival of the fittest? It seems man is uniquely wired to cooperate to survive.

46.4. I didn't catch this when I read the article, but West Philly Local pointed out that this piece about Penn Alexander reports that Penn renewed its financial commitment to the school for another 10 years, so that's a plus.

46.5. I can't tell if 7-Eleven coming up with a dual-chamber Slurpee cup is an indicator of American innovation or American decline. (Or both?) [Hat tip: Marginal Revolution.]
