The Importance of Worldbuilding in Steampunk — (Via jaborwhalky.)

Oil Slick, Mississippi River Delta, Gulf of Mexico — Is it shining like a National guitar?

More vintage Japanese illustration and design

Sinking the Tunnel: 1910 — Some serious steampunkery, from Shorpy.

Of dialects, armies and navies — (Via Scrivener's Error.)

Mosque Building and Gay Marriage vs. Mob Rule by the Right — Ah, the tyranny of the majority.

Scrivener's Error on the Proposition 8 decision — Some choice cites here, including: Proposition 8 is unconstitutional because it denies plaintiffs a fundamental right without a legitimate (much less compelling) reason. Yes, Virginia, bigotry is not part of the state's compelling interest, no matter how sincerely held it may be by people with money and political influence.

Actually, we, or at least I, don't call it Myanmar at all. The pro-democracy movement there asks that you don't as it helps legitimise an illegal regime. Neither the US nor the UK recognised the switch to Myanmar when it occurred (although the UN did), which is why you always hear "Burma" on the BBC.
