Five cool things make a post.

1) Generation X tells the Boomers and kids today to stop their whining. A great article that would be funnier if it weren't so uncomfortably honest.

2) KU tops the International Quidditch Association standings. No, seriously. KU has a Quidditch team, and it's #1 in the world.

3) Last weekend, six of us took a trip out to the Corn Maze of Dooooom, about half an hour from Lawrence, KS. Here's how we got there - and, happily, back! Yes, all of us fit comfortably in the hot-rod Newport! Video proof:

4) A group at Tel Aviv University using "Quantum Trapping" to produce not only the highest recorded levitation but also DOUBLE levitation. COOOL!

5) Giant prehistoric krakens. Sculpting self-portraits. Using icthyosaur bones. I'M JUST SAYIN'.
