  5. http://www.boomerangs.com/coandaeffect.html
    Simple explanation of the Coandă effect, where a stream of water wants to stick to a curved surface (surface tension is also involved with water), and air does the same. Put a bottle in front of a candle and blow out the candle "around" the bottle...

    Ansible looks like a newer, simpler puppet|chef. Uses ssh by default, which is pretty neat, well suited to things like ec2, getting machines up from the ground up. Python. Smart. Free.
