several picks

This post is a little bit different. I would like to share some of my bookmarks and things I found on the Internet.

Few of the best music tracks I found available under a non restrictive license. They deserve a mention here as they made it to my main playlist. You can download them, share or remix some of them.

Inspired by [this|http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2005/08/fill-in-blanks.html] I googled for the phrase ["egypt consumes ** of *"|http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&c2coff=1&q=%22egypt+consumes+**+of+*%22&btnG=Search] and ["egypt produces ** of *"|http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hs=Q0x&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&c2coff=1&client=firefox&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aunofficial&q=%22egypt+produces+**+of+*%22&btnG=Search] you will have a few laughs. Also quite usefull to people who enjoy throwing some statistics in a heated debate or trying to prove a point blindly.

Finally, outer space. Here is [the best photo|http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/image_feature_380.html] I have seen this month. It is a self-protrait. Impressive.
