If you've signed up for a free account at comic book buying/reading site comixology.com, you can get the free downloadable comic book Buck Rogers: 25th Century A.D.: FCBD 2013, with two collected stories from the Sunday comics version of the Buck Rogers strip, both of which ran in papers in 1937. They did really elaborate stuff with color in Sunday strips back then! And in the back there's a collection of the very first Buck Rogers daily strips, from 1929.


Came across a couple interesting new science articles on the BBC's site this morning:

Near-death experiences 'explained' talks about a new study of dying rats that found (rather morbidly) "high levels of brainwaves at the point of the animals' demise," and they think that, if the brain also goes hyperactive like that right before death in humans, it that might explain the bright tunnel, life-flashing-before-your-eyes and other weird stuff related by people who've been on the brink of death and come back to tell about it.

Musk unveils 'Hyperloop' idea is about latest idea from the guy who invented PayPal, SpaceX, and Tesla automobiles: namely, super-high-speed trains suspended on air in solar-powered tubes, zipping between cities like little memo-laden pods used to zip through air tubes between departments in old business buildings; to hear him tell it, the train version totally doable, although he says he doesn't have time to work on it himself. If you watch the video at the top, though, it sounds like another group has already been working on such a concept, and are even more upbeat about it.
