Dazed Rambling on world building — He is not so fond of my cities, or bram111's.

Language Log lays some smack on Dan Brown

Ads from a 1952 edition of Laff — I'm quite taken with the love letter ad, myself.

Time Travel Through the Brain — The lede is tongue-in-cheek, though quite cool. The story is about the history of how we visualize the brain, also cool.

Not quite true, Jay. I may not have been fond of Copper Downs, but I did enjoy Kamlimpura. I am also very much a fan of your City Imperishable. So, not all of your cities, just the one. :P

I think you guys are far too hard on Dan Brown. I think he does very well for a man whose first language so obviously is not English.

In the ads, I like the hypnosis one: they're so up front about the "thrill of imposing your will on someone else." Kind of like the fun of being a dictator!
