Damn Interesting Indeed
Is Damn Interesting a web site or a blog? I'm not exactly sure, but it does often live up to its name on a wide range of topics by a number of different writers. A case in point: this post on late World War II plans for a very strange super weapon by Third Reich researchers. It combines optics and space with a sadistic Nazi-amplified nostalgia for burning ants with a magnifying glass. It's very bizarre, as are most of the hundreds of comments in response to this post, most of which have nothing to do with the post itself. Damn interesting indeed, and not just the posts on space exploration.
