[links] Link salad for JayCon

ericjamesstone with a review of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Audible ] — An interesting and thoughtful take on the book from a friend of mine.

ANZ to Power 747 With Weed

How to document funny — (Thanks to lt260.)

New “superpaper” stronger than cast iron — This has a lot of amazing possibilities. (Thanks to Chris Johnson.)

Life and Death of the Canvendish Banana — Ah, monoculture.

“Strengths and Weaknesses” — More anti-evolution idiocy in education. Repeat after me, people: “Faith doesn’t have to make you stupid.”

Tales from the editorial board room — How Your Liberal Media covered the Iraq War. (Hint: “Liberal media” is one of the biggest lies in modern political history.)
