A blast from the past (or ~7000 of them). This was overshadowed by events a couple months earlier. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...les/kamio.html

I didn't read either article, but seeing the title lead me to suspect that.

How can you recommend them if you haven't even read them?

Well, it's rather simple, really. He copies the links and clicks the submit button.

I get a weekly e-mail from Mensa with links to the articles. Some I read, some I do not read. I used to only post links to those I thought others would find interesting, but I decided to post all links because I don't know who is interested in what.

The article in thewrap is behind a paywall.

Added thewrap.com to leechblock blacklist, to avoid wasting time in the future.

I can see the article okay. Nothing is blocked.

Although the website design is terrible with the article inside a small scrolling window within the main page.

Looking at the page source shows a "wrappro-paywall" style (which I guess is controlled by JS to hide it or something?) but all the text is there with the main page. So disable your JS and read it.

Thanks. Good to know. I could read the article, using "show page source" tricks in FF (no need disable JS). That is what I meant by "wasting time". They even were not clever enough to hide it completely. I mean, it will cost you money to read it, but only if you are silly (correctly: computer illiterate).
Edit: Other articles are, however, interesting.
