Beware of leprechauns


Jewish date:  26 Marḥeshwan 5770 (Parashath Ḥayye-Sarah).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Friday the Thirteenth, World Kindness Day

Today’s news and commentary:
  • Cell Size and Scale”:  This is a Flash presentation showing the relative sizes of things from a coffee bean all the way to a carbon atom.  This should be useful for anyone trying to get a sense of perspective on different physical scales.
Today’s weird things, submitted by Barry, are “Leprechaun Traps - Catch a Leprechaun in Your Garden!” and “Mindstorms NXT - Leprechaun Trap”.

Don’t ask me, please, why anyone would build a trap for creatures which do not exist; I have no idea.  This may be related to sending people on “snipe hunts” as a practical joke.  Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
