Word of the Day

Risible (adj., RIZ-ih-bull)

Provoking laughter. Nothing fancy on this one. (If the pronunciation is a little tricky, try remembering that risible sounds like dirigible. Both cause laughter to rise.)

Link of the Day

Aerial photograph of 1920's Edinburgh

This aerial photograph of Edinburgh from the 1920s is pretty crazy:

The person who took the photograph was Alfred Buckham, an aerial photography pioneer. Buckham crashed nine times and was declared "one hundred percent disabled" at one point. Still, he continued to daringly venture into the sky for photos like these.

You can see the image and read more about Buckham over at the National Galleries of Scotland.
