Welcome to the Futility Closet

by Terry Burton, Digital Media Coordinator

One of the many entertaining aspects of my job as editor of this blog is to follow other museum, science, and history-related blogs out there in the blogosphere. I found one today that’s just too good to keep to myself: it’s a blog called “Futility Closet,” and describes itself as “An idler’s miscellany of compendious amusements.” The author covers a wonderfully diverse range of topics, including history, science and math, language, literature, and technology. If you’re an intellectually curious person with a quirky sense of humor (and I think you are; you’re reading our blog, aren’t you?), this blog is for you.

Here’s a sample: “Hey!“, which attempts to answer the question, “If Martians are observing us, how can we show them we’re intelligent?” Enjoy.
