[linls] Link salad grumbles about the elections

Gardner Dozois on Subterranean Online — With a very favorable mention of one of my few non-genre stories, "Dream of the Arrow".

The McGurk Effect: Watch your ears lie to you — This is cool and strange. Psychology and linguistics meet. (Via willyumtx.)

Pink Cigarettes — Cancer humor. Hahahah. (Via goulo.)

Two-mile-high mountains discovered in Saturn's rings — Who wants to go climbing?

Chatbot Wears Down Proponents of Anti-Science Nonsense — For some reason, I find this very funny.

?otD: Are you happy with the US elections?

Yesterday's chemo/post-op stress index: 4/10 (fatigue, peripheral neuropathy, emotional distress)

    Being right or being happy: pilot study — Which kind of reminds me of my “justice versus peace” parable I sometimes tell. (Via David Goldman.)…
