Tuesday NIght is Links NIght!

First, an interesting, but brief, accounting of an on-going feud between "The Duke" and Duke University.  [Aside: I'm a huge John Wayne fan and dislike most things Dukie, so I think Duke University is wrong here!].

Second, 215 years ago, the Rosetta Stone was discovered.  Don't know what the Rosetta Stone is?  Two comments: a) you need to; b) click here and learn about one of the most important archaeological discoveries of all-time.

Third, self-assembly polymer molecules may revolutionize the semiconductor industry.

Fourth, material that is so black the human eye can't see it even when looking intentionally and directly at it.  This nanotube stuff is getting pretty exciting!
