Music for the voracious infovore?

I really like music that inspires me to jump up and...go read Wikipedia (or a dictionary, for that matter)!

Finding science toys in UK?

Long ago I found a British online shop selling cool "science toys". It had things like aerogel, although I'm not sure if it actually sold aerogel. One thing I specifically remember is a "trick pen" where it looked like there was no way for the button on the top to do anything, and the centre section was 4 thin metal rods. The rods were actually hollow and contained a wire that transmitted the force. Help me find it again! [more inside]

What are some 3D puzzles?

What are some activities that exercise visual or structural type thinking? Something to do with science, technology, or 3-dimensions preferred. I'm looking for puzzles, hobbies, or other activities that might be performed through an actual job that I'm just not aware of. As examples, auto-mechanics classes and memorizing anatomy books immediately comes to mind.

What is Temperature?

Science Explanation needed: Trying to get a better understanding of 'temperature'. While discussing whether it's safe to eat from a non-stick pan I pointed out that Teflon doesn't start to break down until it hits around 300 degrees; if you kept the pan temp lower than that it should be fine.
