charlesatan reviews Leviathan 4 — In which he likes "The Soul Bottles".

In defense of spell checkingLanguage Log is interesting as usual.

Europe beyond ASCII — A very strange map from Strange Maps.

Time traveler's cheat sheet — (Thanks to danjite for pointing this out.)

The best computer interfaces: past, present and future — I find myself oddly conservative on this topic.

Dobson concedes that the far right has 'lost' the culture war. — I don't think that's true. There always seems to be more room in conservative politics for hatred and intolerance. It's not like the American Right woke up and recognized their intellectual and moral bankruptcy at this late date. (Snurched from Scrivener's Error.)

?otD: Do you know the way to Xi'an?

Body movement: urban walking all day
This morning's weigh-in: n/a (traveling)
Currently reading: The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade by Herman Melville; The Solitudes by John Crowley

i was hoping that the time traveler's cheat sheet would tell you went to buy and sell stocks and bet on baseball games.... though i guess that only works if you're not going very far. if it's open ended it should include things like "TRILLOBITES ARE POISONOUS! TRICERATOPS GOOD EATIN!"

As long as we're poking fun at the wacky religious right, get a load of this hilarious-but-dead-serious-and-therefore-scary essay: Legalized Same-Sex "Marriage" in Iowa: Worse than a 500-year Flood

Note how the author seems to abandon any notion of a compassionate and forgiving god. The fundamentalists have come out of the closet!
