Three "timepass" links!

Timepass links for the weekend.

1. Life (via this and this place)

2. Fox News needs a math lesson? (via FlowingData)


3. A fascinating blog on the "meandering of rivers". One very interesting tidbit towards the end of the article is "self-similarity". Apparently some universality underlies the meandering of rivers and streams.

It seems that the wavelength "lambda" is approximately 11*w and the "radius" is approximately 2.3*w, where "w" is the width of the stream
