"Astronautical", a painting inspired in part by Mainspring — (Thanks to the artist.)

Fictional antedating of the marthamblesLanguage Log takes on Patrick O'Brian.

APOD with a photo of Hyperion, one of the moons of Saturn — It looks like a giant piece of coral to me. Very cool stuff.

Bendy gadget future for graphene — Mmm. Materials science. (Thanks to lt260.)

Pro-abortion donuts — Nice to see that the quality of thinking on the American Right continues to be absymally ludicrous.

I'm forced to admit I'm not familiar with the song. My influence is wholly childrens'-joke-book, I fear.*^_^*

I saw the article about Krispy Kreme the other day. There's one right next to the park n ride where I drop off my car every day, and I'm thinking of picking me up some pro-abortion donuts on Tuesday, and not just the free one! :-p (That's just about the most ludicrous piece of crap I've heard in a while.)

If Krispy Kreme is pro-choice, does that mean that Dunkin Donuts are anti-abortion?
