Internet marvels

There's always something  incredible online.  I wasn't even looking for most of it.  WOW!

For instance, we live in a three dimensional world, where a square can be expanded into a cube (3 dimensions). But how would that look if there was a fourth dimension?  We can't imagine it because we only know 3, but scientists have a theory called a tesseract.   (It's not a new idea--it's only that I found it this
Here's how Carl Sagan explained it, too.


THIS animal has fascinated me for months.  It's in a column of photos  that Minnesotastan, the author of a blog called TYWKIWDBI , intends to write about.


Another cool thing on the internet is TinEye, a reverse image search engine.  Duh--I tried the picture of the steer, and it found 31 copies of it online.  Ok, so I'm not as fascinated by TinEye now. (I thought it would find similar animals, NOT the same pic).  Oh, well!
