Sunday Burst of Weirdness

Oddities abound!

:: The fine folks at Guinness have weighed in on ten "unbreakable" world records. Interesting reading...when I was a kid, the annual release of the newest edition of the Book of World Records was always an event.

:: Here's a news item that thrills the "I can't wait for the future!" part of me. Apparently the airport in San Diego is one of the country's busier airports, and it has the country's busiest runway, because that runway is the airport's only runway. For various reasons, building a second runway on the airport grounds is unfeasible -- so one person has suggested building a runway at sea, around ten miles offshore. Wow!!!

:: First, there was the Discovery Channel doing boom de yada. Then, the always-wonderful xkcd did its own version of boom de yada. Finally, someone animated the xkcd version and sang the words. Boom de yada!

More next week!
