Fed2 Star Index

In this week’s Fed2 Star: what the real life Armstrong Cuthbert looks like, the next systems to be removed, a cocktail boat, why popcorn and cinema doesn’t mix, why I should have got up earlier today, why white wine drinkers pour more, a criminal with an appropriate name, the astronomy pic of the day site returns and nature sculpts in ice. Plus Alan’s technical column Winding Down and the usual posts and acts of the week in the Fed Funnies.
