Link Round-up

Some random links from my "neat stuff" file:

~ How To Steal Like An Artist (and 9 Other Things Nobody Told Me) by Austin Kleon

~ Echoism: "There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more 'attractive'..." (This site freaks me out a little bit, I admit.)

~ Find a special day in Pi. Today (5112011) occurs at "position 11,008,290 counting from the first digit after the decimal point." (You needed to know that, right?)

~ Find out what is on the opposite side of the Earth from you (or from any point you choose).

~ Geography + Tetris

~ One more: Guys Lit Wire is having a book fair for a school in Washington D.C. that is in dire need of books (they have less than one book per student). You pick a book from the school's Powell's book list and have it shipped to them-- it's easy!

~ Not from the file, but...I liked listening to Garrison Keillor read Anne Sexton's Riding the Elevator into the Sky this morning.
