[links] Link salad tries to remember that day in December

Awaiting the Owl — On the off chance you don't already read Making Light, here's Patrick Nielsen Hayden riffing on Cosma Shalizi on the Singularity. Fascinating stuff.

Planetary Park Posters (and t-shirts) — :: swoons :: (Thanks to shaolingrrl.)

Ducks in the wind — All we are is ducks in the wind... This video is stupidly cute, hilarious and sad all at the same time. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Glacial Silt Encased Some of Earth’s Best-Preserved Fossils — This is cool.

Kamchatka Volcanoes — A nifty orbital photo and some interesting explanations thereof.

Abandoned Icons — Art guru James Gurney with an image collage of the abandoned Six Flags theme park in New Orleans, and a link to more.

Is AIPAC a Wikileaks Operation? — Strangely enough, in conservative eyes, not all classified leaks are equal. Given the justly famed intellectual consistency and moral probity of the GOP, who knew such thinking was possible? As Juan Cole says at the end of the piece, You have to love hypocrisy when it is taken to this Himalyan scale. It has a kind of putrid beauty.
