Friday, another day – History of English + Why is glass transparent?

Good Friday to you,

This may well be a silly post, but as I am the author/curator/fallen angel from which the content is posted… you will have to deal with it.

Rather, I cannot promise silliness. If it happens it happens.

Sochi, the 2014 Olympics (potentially) in one image.

On the topic of the Sochi Olympics, aka the gay topic, below is a video podcast from February 4th’s Joe Rogan Experience featuring Justin Martindale, a gay comedian (who is quite quite funny). Besides the rather dark beginning with footage from Waco it is really an entertaining watch/listen.

In the stead of the nonsensical writing which I had initially planned to share, checkout a couple interesting videos: one which explains why glass is transparent (perhaps rather why solids are opaque), and another video which, in a silly way, covers the (a) history of the English language.

The History of English in 10 Minutes

Below are three songs which I have been listening to as of late. Really, they’re just the most recent tracks to be added to my repertoire. Perhaps you will enjoy them.

Damien Jurado – Silver Timothy

Chela – Romanticise (Gold Fields Remix)

EMBRZ – Slow Down

Turns out the aforementioned promise of silliness was an empty gesture. Perhaps another time.

About Ossington

I often think but seldom share these thoughts. And if the product of my thinking is to affect anything but my own sense of satisfaction, then surely it must be shared. Here you may try to know what I believe to know.
