  • 101 years ago today, the land speed record was set, at 91.37 miles per hour. This fact was culled from my The Worst-Case Scenario 2005 Daily Survival Box Calendar, though this sparked some controversy — according to what I could find, this record was set by Henry Ford. According to the calendar, it was set by Barney Oldfield, which seems to have been hired after this heroic event due to fear of Ford’s impending death on the part of his wife. While the calendar makes a better story of it, the truth is still interesting.

  • I now know how to artificially fade my t-shirts.
