Welcome to "Effortlessly Interesting," the feature in which we've got space to fill, but we're clearly not trying too hard. I mean, come on, it's three days 'til New Years, right? We're busy. Anyway...

This time out all we've got for you is this link, which leads to a fascinating model of the earth's ocean currents, as observed from the ISS, weather satellites, and assorted orbital bric-a-brac. Yeah, yeah, I know it doesn't sound all that interesting, but it is, in fact, pretty cool, and it does, in fact, look something like a Van Gogh painting, as the article itself suggests.
