Happy Friday, everyone!

From Julie: new ancient humans (not an oxymoron)! Also, Christie's is going to auction off "The Arcana Collection: Exceptional Illuminated Manuscripts And Incunabula" in July. It's worth it for the title alone, I think.

From Danny: a slideshow of obsolete jobs!

From Bill: behold, the Aetheric Message Machine Company, Ltd. shows what can be done with a Model 15 Teletype! They were at the steampunk convention last week, too.

From Cassandra, some questions: What happened to the old Baltimore-area amusement parks?  Is nostalgia a disorder?  And why are all the bloggers male? (Um. Well. Is there a place one signs up for these sorts of memos? Because I've never gotten any of them!)

And finally, via my workplace: consider Earth Hour tomorrow at 8:30 p.m. local time. Turn off the lights and, I don't know, conduct blind taste tests or stalk raccoons or something. At any rate, have a spiffy weekend! Back on Monday.
