Neocons on a Cruise: What Conservatives Say When They Think We Aren't Listening — A pretty good summary of why I think so many conservatives are nuts, intellectually dishonest or both.

Despite the Web, Americans Remain Woefully Ill-Informed — Including the comment about how poorly informed Fox News viewers are on current events. (Remember the poll about the relationship between primary news source and belief that WMDs had been found in Iraq?)

Odds on the Human Future — The Copernican principle applied to the Fermi Paradox.

Spinning Silhouette Illusion — This one hurts my brain.

From Smut to Adult Diapers: The Young Novelist's Life — Interviews with young Canadian novelists.

Robot insects.

Spinning Silhouette broke my eyes, so in return I give you (indirectly via a recent post by Jed Hartman), this sentence:
More people have been the Russia than I have.

Or, if you like:
Why do more people watch television than I do?

Why indeed. I broke my brain on these earlier today and I'm still twitching. They were discussed in Language Log in 2004, so you may remember them...

The difference is the yahoos on DailyKos are just that -- yahoos. The neocons are running the country.
