World Wonders

12/05/2006

I’m spent some time on the World Wonders site today, investigating the goodies there. There are are nine categories of wonders here, and I clicked each and every one of them. Lots of pretty pictures, and some info on most of the wonders. You will find something to amaze you, I promise.

The Miniature Earth

11/10/2006

If you reduced the population of the earth to 100 people, yet kept them representative of the entire current population……….and put it into pictures, you’d have this. Excellent to show world societies in numbers the human mind can actually grasp. The Miniature Earth is a short movie with a big impact. It will make you grateful, I think.

The Forbidden Library

11/09/2006

Woohoo! Books that have hacked people off. Celebrate your freedom to read. An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.–Oscar Wilde

Tells a bit about the books that have been banned/challenged and why. Surprises include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Little House on the Prairie.The Forbidden Library: Banned and Challenged Books contains other surprises as well. It’s not just the books that are surprising, but the reasons as well.
