As Stephanie Georgopulos points out,"A combination of egocentrism and overzealous real estate agents has led to an overabundance of Manhattan neighborhoods."
We were inspired by her article and made a map to display some of her findings. Manhattan, instantly understood.
Prints are available in our map store.

An Animated History Of New York’s Subway

new york subway history

Connecting the five boroughs to one another is no easy feat, which at least partially explains the 468 operating stations and 209 miles of routes that comprise the New York City Subway. It all goes to good use, though; in 2011 over 1.64 billion rides were delivered to denizens of the Big Apple.

The Hitler Game

That link leads to a random Wikipedia page. From your random page, the goal is to try and get to Hitler’s page through only following links.  Don’t cheat and click on something you think won’t get you to the page, you have to try to reach it. You win if it takes you less than six clicks.

IS THIS THE NEW MAPCRUNCH

Open Source Cola > Halal > Kashrut > Holocaust theology > Adolf Hitler

Temple of Death - David Cook (Game Designer) - Blitzkrieg (game) - World War II - Adolf Hitler

Imperial College London - European University Association - Belgium - Battle of Belgium - HITLER

This is so fun.

MINE:

2-Piperidinone > Flash point > Jet fuel > Aircraft carrier > World War I > HITLER

Who knew Hitler could be so fun!

Edit: I apparently didn’t get the game at first.  Need the random page:

Perinetia > Animalia > Carl Linnaeus > Sweden > World War II > Hitler

Went with the World of Sports, starting with the Head Baseball Coach of my beloved Commodores (admittedly, I figured I could get there via the Commodore rank).

Tim Corbin > Vanderbilt Commodores > Captain > US Navy > WWII > Hitler

Then my favorite sport which I still believe is only half real, Sepak Takraw (the eastern Asian volleyball-like sport).

Sepak Takraw > World Games > Olympic Games > 1936 Olympic Games > Hitler

No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.

This was a fantastic episode of Veritasium. Maybe the best. The recoil of a slinky, stretched under its own weight, is a pretty fantastic physics problem, especially when you capture it in super-slo-mo.
Check out the original video here. And the analysis here. And of course Derek had to take it to another level and drop a slinky from the top of a building.
