Geographical contexts to everyday situations explained




Should also have told you about Google Earth's Santa Tracker, which was rather wonderful. Remember it for next year.



Snow on the way for the East of England.
Just investigating some accumulators (sites which show lists of interesting and quirky sites - many of which have provided me with my best finds of the year...)
These have led me to Flagrant Disregard's FLICKR tools, and AMAZTYPE amongst others...
The latest rediscovery is WORLD JUMP DAY: http://www.worldjumpday.org
This is an attempt to shift the world into a new orbit, which would apparently - and there's some scientific detail on the site to back all of this up... - produce a more homogenous climate, and stop Global Warming. They need 600 million people to sign up.
They also sell T-shirts....
