Secrets Buried Deep in Time

Who wrote the Voynich Manuscript?

Why are there 63,360 inches in a mile?

And what will be the ultimate fate of the universe?

This and more at mathematician John Baez’s fantastic, kaleidoscopic web page. Found via his recent Long Now lecture.

I know this is slightly of topic, but WHY THE HELL have you not made another video on how some huge company is gonna rule our lives? I liked Epic 2014, so why no update it with: Epic: 2016? Especially with the Youtube-Google thing going on right now? Hmmm? I know your an awesome person with mad skills, so pleassssse?

Yeah... after 2015, we kinda decided we didn't want to spend the rest of our lives re-mixing the same old project. EPIC was successful (I think) because it struck a particular nerve at a particular time; so if we were going to go back to work I think it'd be more fun to find a new nerve to strike.

What might it be, though? ... Any suggestions?
