  Futures Websites.

Here are some links to places where futurists and others predict what will come to pass as time rolls on. It will focus on social, societal and political items as well as those from technology and science and other topics that seem interesting. They are almost never accurate, of course; and some are more serious than others. And that is all part of the fun. But they will give you food for thought as you try to visualize where we are headed. Have fun.

  Learn Some Elementary Egyptian Hieroglyphics (really!).

Ramses figureDr. Serge Rosmorduc has posted in English at the University of Paris, a very interesting and informative website on ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics. It is called "A Short Introduction to Hieroglyphs." You can actually learn a little bit about it in a very short time. For example, in five minutes or less, you can learn to interpret a cartouche*(the symbol used to enclose royal names) for King Ramesses * as follows: * is a sign for the sun, in Coptic, "Ra;" the*is associated with the words "to give birth," or "mose", therefore the consonant "m" (it even looks a bit like an "m" if you stretch a bit). And the * is an "s." So you get "ra-m-s-s" or "Ramesses" *. Already you are half-way there! All of this example is on the page titled "The Deciphering of Hieroglyphs." Dr. Rosmorduc even hosts a page (in French) where you can submit your name, and get it back in hieroglyphs. [Translate it into English by submitting its URL at http://translate.google.ca/]. On the "Discovering Egypt" website, another "Egyptian Name Translator" is also available, as is a page on Egyptian Math.
...  ...  Have lots of fun:

For some delightful drawings, see the Imaginary Life Forms from the 'severly board mind' of Roger C. Wagner.
His Imaginary Worlds and Gallery of 3D images (computer art from biology) are also very well done. Great fun!
