A fascinating parallel deconstruction of Mainspring and Stormfrontarcaedia, are you looking?

Whole lotta cantin' going on — Roger Ebert on Inception, film criticism and the social psychology of liking things. And Ta-Nehisi Coates with a much briefer squib on the movie.

Comics put patients in the pictureGraphic novels and medical comics are proving powerful communication tools for patients and medical professionals. Another very constructive way to talk about chemotherapy. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Only Disconnect — Life in the iPhone generation. (Via my dad.)

Dieselpunk Motorcycle — Mmmm.

Postcards from the Future — (Via kevinstandlee.)

Saltair Pavilion: 1900 — Wild architecture, Utah style.

Quantum Time Machine Solves Grandfather ParadoxA new kind of time travel based on quantum teleportation gets around the paradoxes that have plagued other time machines, say physicists. Hmmm. Grandfatherless time machines. Hmmm.

Palin on the Ground Zero Mosque vs. the Founding Fathers — Fascinating reading from Juan Cole, including quite a few cites from primary sources, e.g. the Founding Fathers themselves. Exposes once again the intellectual and cultural shallowness of the Tea Party mentality.

?otD: How much is that dogie in the windbreak?

(Of course, first I'd have to learn how to write comic scripts. Then I'd have to find an artist... :p)
