What -1 was saying the other day in the Javelin thread applies here:
It reminds of the good old days of the web, when the sites were still heavily enthusiast-driven and people were more about content in the sense of information rather than content solely to get ad clicks/Facebook shares.

That site needs a hit counter at the bottom of the home page.

The FUN link is wonderful, thank you for that! Even though I'm a grownup who feels they know a lot about the scientific method, there's something beautifully clarifying about hearing someone explain it rigorously, yet accessibly, to a high school kid.

I love the Finishing is about creating a surface/skin with the properties you need part, and I love the emphasis placed in purple swirly letters

Finishing is key to a sustainable future. I did not know that. I'm not sure it's true but I am sure that this is a fine site. Thanks, OP!

My hat's off to them for aggressively sticking to the web design they know, but holy cats I wish they could at least concede to the era of broadband enough to post larger photos. It's fascinating stuff undermined by illustrations at flyspeck sizes.

Google searches have sent me to on many occasions. It’s the best message board-type resource there is, for what they do.
