Woo, these are some pretty thick articles; when the Lasik Surgery timeline starts with: "Plato reports accounts of retinal damage caused by staring at eclipses," you know it's time to sit down.

It's a shame they're not soliciting any new submissions.

Neat stuff, and there's a lot of content there.

I really liked the game theory discussion, but I'm a math nerd.

The selection of available languages is interesting. It looks like most articles are translated into Chinese, Japanese and Spanish. Some are available in German and a few even in Croatian (huh? what's that about?)

Sorry Frenchie, but we won't waste our valuable tax dollars with Francais.
