From the Department of Holy Cow! "Yes, a real Viking sword over 1000 years old. This is just part of a new archeological discovery, the 16-foot tomb of a Viking warrior who came to Scotland and never went home again. The high-status warrior was buried with his boat and all his gear."

I was going to pick just one of these One-Minute Physics videos, but I couldn't. They are all fantastic, so be sure to check 'em out! Even condensed I needed to pause them and really think about what they were talking about (!)

Absolutely amazing underwater photography.

The music of nature - what genre would this fall under, "Rock"? (jokes, I make them). Volcanoes composing music … pretty much my Link of the Month right now.

What could tablets learn from wax tablets (called "tables") from the 16th century? Wax tablets "gave businessmen a way of quickly jotting down notes at a time when paper was pretty expensive and writing with an inkpot and quill just didn’t cut it on the go." See, there's nothing new under the sun!

Are these hyper-realistic drawings real or photoshopped? (Ok, so there is a video but … it's just so hard not to be skeptical these days!)

Feeling inspired to be artistic now yourself? Check out the Scribbler, where you can create generative illustrations from simple line drawings. There are lots of controls, so play around and see what you come up with! If you think it's worth sharing, email it to me (FlossyLinks@gmail.com) and I may feature it next week!

Finally, a bonus picture courtesy of my friend Cassie, with the caption "understatement of the year."
