GBS: Named Plaintiffs Go StreakingScrivener's Error with more Google Books settlement fun and games.

The Greatest Show on Earth: the Evidence for Evolution by Richard Dawkins: review

COMBO: collaboration animation by Blu and David Ellis — This is a damned amazing video.

Giz Explains: How To Fix the Airlines' Stupid Portable Gadget Rules — Speaking as a frequent traveler, um, yes.

Water on the Moon... kinda — Ok. Cool. Where's me pump?

Mysterious ruins may help explain Mayan collapse — This is kind of cool, albeit likely distorted by the lens of pop-sci journalism. Though I do wonder, are there any such thing as non-mysterious ruins?

What's Augmented Reality's Killer App?

That Which Does Not Kill Me Makes Me Stranger — A very curious article in the NYT about the limits of human endurance. Interesting stuff. (Thanks to danjite.)

Misplaced Fears About the 'Czars' — Former Republican DOJ officials about the czar weirdness. Not that little things like facts or the historical record matter to most Republicans today — everyone from Glen Beck to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has piled on to this moronic bandwagon. Confidential to conservative America: Your outrage might have some moral authority if you could be outraged about things which are real, or at least substantive, instead of bizarre fabrications and cynical misrepresentations such as death panels, czars and birth certificates. Y'all just keep making yourself look like morons.
