So, ever wonder just how much a hurricane weighs? Here's an interesting story I heard the other morning. The weight of clouds as rendered in the unit capacity of elephants (because in pounds, the numbers are so large, they become meaningless to most people, but elephants, well, that's a visual). Or, for those who prefer their datum to come from videos. All done by Robert Krulwich. (reminded of this by E. Bear)
Yeah, not going to make the deadline for Writers of the Future, or my self imposed deadline of having Bladesman ready for World of Fantasy. Failure, I'll have it tattooed on my forehead just after I take that remedial math course.
And because it's fun, Asteroids on any page. (via Dan from John Gruver).
