10:27 pm - One scary link, one cool link ...

Another one of those "glad I don't live over there" moments [1].

Meanwhile, this is very cool - recreating what a cat is seeing by measuring electrical signals in part of their brains.

[1] Having said that, I have to admit my ignorance regarding this area of property law in either the UK or Australia. Maybe we're all as bad as each other ?

Compulsory acquisition is alive and well in Melbourne at least. A huge amount of land was compulsorarily (too early, can't spell) acquired for road and sewage developments to the east and north in the last couple (I think, pre-coffee so don't know for sure) of years.

Dunno about for private developments though, having said that I know some of the land acquired for a sewage development in the mid-80s (I think), which was then not allowed to go ahead because the land was part of a flood plain (which makes you wonder how the hell they acquired it in the first place for that purpose - sewage treatment/floodplain: great combination!) was then sold at quite a large profit by the government.

This was all supposed to go in the first comment, but I did mention the pre-coffee thing, yeah?

Brain link was very cool. Links from there include mind maps and "a language of schizophrenia" which I thought was pretty neat, too.
