Bathtub II — Sydney harbor shot in tilt-shift via a technique known as miniature faking. Some weird stuff going on here, at a number of levels. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

"Japanese people taste the best - whites are too salty!" — Not quite sure how to take this article on cannibalism, but it's interesting. (Thanks to danjite.)

Why the Death of S.U.V.'s?Freakonomics takes on one of the burning issues of our times.

Time to Reboot America — Thomas Friedman, who I generally regard as a thorough-going idiot for his endless pandering to the Bush administration on the Iraq War, talks about American infrastructure with a bit of sense. (Thanks to my Dad.)

?otD: What is a midnight clear, anyway?

Body movement: 40 minute stationary bike ride

The cannibal link is from bild.de, which is the web presence of a nasty German tabloid. I wouldn't take anything Bild says seriously, including that article, though the slide show looks legit.

My fellow Americans, we can’t continue in this mode of “Dumb as we wanna be.” We’ve indulged ourselves for too long with tax cuts that we can’t afford,

Thanks. Love the quote. You are so right about this article and its author. However, I disagree with his auto bailout stance. Real people with real jobs deserve to be bailed out. For anyone who hasn't jumped to the article, please do.
