10 Centuries in 5 Minutes

I love this animated map of Europe over 10 centuries. And, so that the Americans don't feel left out, here is a great video of an attempt to visualise Washington as it would have looked in 1814.

Make Your Own Scratch & Sniff Map

With a little help from artist Sissel Tolaas, 'the world's pre-eminent olfactory cartographer', The Atlantic report on how to make a scratch & sniff map. The only Google Map of smells I know of is Nioibu, a Japanese map that describes smells at different locations.

The third message from heaven...
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
