Han Rosling’s 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 minutes - The Joy of Stats

I know what you’re thinking, the Joy of Stats? Stats are boring, and normally I would agree. But Hans Rosling knows how to make stats interesting, and shows them to you in a way like you’ve never seen before, it’s definitely worth taking 4 minutes out of your day to watch.

This is the short version, if you enjoyed it check out the more in depth Ted Talk here.

Flashmob of the Day: A flashmob invaded a Copenhagen, Denmark Metro train last month, but in this case, the flashmob was the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.

They treated unsuspecting commuters to a performance of Grieg’s “Peer Gynt,” and creative agency Makropol captured the whole thing on video.

Right about now, a few people on that train are probably wishing they had taken their earbuds out.

Lamellar armour is a kind of personal armour consisting of small plates (lames) which are laced together in parallel rows. Lamellar armour evolved from scale armour, from which it differs by not needing a backing for the scales. It is made from pieces of lacquered leather, iron, steel or horn held together with silk, leather thongs, or cotton thread.
