Both arXiv and archive.org are invaluable projects which, if they didn't exist, we would dismiss as obviously ridiculous and unworkable.

At least, I don't think there's evidence. My claim that there's no evidence hasn't been falsified. At least, not that I know of.

One of the beautiful things about math is how much of it (such as imaginary numbers) is almost completely useless except as a foundation for more math, which itself is more useful.

If you ever played Civilization 4 you'll know Baba Yetu, the theme song for the game.

It's the work of composer Christopher Tin, who ended up winning a Grammy for the song and in the process, Civilization 4 became the first video game to win a Grammy.

Now, it's another first for Baba Yetu, which has starred in America's Got Talent.

Update: It turns out the cannon has a motorized base, and can make holes just fine using the barrel itself as a battering ram. But due to design constraints it won't work without a projectile loaded in, so we still need those drills.
