Sen Al Franken is a wizard at drawing a US map from memory. This link has a clip of him doing it on Late Night with David Letterman in the 80s (when he was still half of Franken and Davis).

The Hacker Scouts changed their name to "Curiosity Hacked" right after this article was published.
Related: The Boy Scouts even tried to pressure the Girl Scouts into dropping "Scouts" from their name throughout the 1920s. They wanted them to either revert to their original name, Girl Guides, or to merge with the Campfire Girls. (BSA's long-time executive director was convinced that boys felt "humiliated" because girls used the same title.) But after Mrs. Herbert Hoover became national president of the Girl Scouts in 1926, and first lady in 1929, the Boy Scouts gave up the fight.
Stax Records could have lasted longer if they hadn't wasted ink on those unnecessary quotation marks around the label titles.
I am keeping tabs on the national Hacker Scouts name-change issue. After I completed this article, the Hacker Scouts officially announced that they will change their name and not attempt an expensive legal battle.

You see a lot more about the radio-controlled quadcopters Claudio Donndelinger &co built on this blog post, including a great time-elapsed video of a quadcopter chassis being extruded on a 3D printer: http://www.midsouthmakers.org/2013/04/buil…
