How High Is The Sky? — A 1940s approach to education through illustration. Fascinating. (Via goulo.)

Giant marine virus found — Speaking of bizarre headlines...

Hugh Hefner has been good for us — Roger Ebert with a meditation on sex and society, which reminds me all over again why I can never be a conservative. Social repression and criminalization of consensual private behavior are profoundly unAmerican and inhumane, and they are mainstays of conservative thought and political action to this day. [ETA: Perhaps obviously, this link will not be especially worksafe.]

Climate Change: The Evidence — The problem with staking your scientific views on political positions is that facts are evidence-based, not rhetorical.

You know, a couple of years ago when I first saw a TV listing for the Kardashians, I thought it was a typo -- then I saw it wasn't on any channel that shows SF... -- Dr. Phil
