Tom Scott produces so much excellent, informative, stuff.
Here is his latest episode detailing a special kind of elevator which goes up and down, and across!
Beautiful engineering, shame it never caught on.
Old boy who invented it has an alarming voice.

Listen to this incredible medieval music. It sounds like something from an alien planet. This is from before the harmonies settled into the modern patterns. Eerie but beautiful:

Or toxic.
And now both he and the little girl are in an I.C.U. after handling it.
For some reason I always think of the 'worst case scenario', like a German being worried about his sausages and cheese.

This is apparently what people are woken up to at 6am every morning, "Where are you dear general?" in North Korea.

It would be nice just to have an alarm clock and choose when they get up:

Volcanodiscovery.com looks an interesting site, showing volcanoes currently erupting worldwide, recent earthquakes & more.

According to the site there have been 25 quakes today Mon 11th in the USA, all fairly minor. Yesterday 11 quakes.

Another excellent film from Tom Scott today.
