Stalled — Leah Cutter on the difference between being blocked and being stalled. A very useful distinction.

2010 Best Writers I Discovered In 2010 — Brian Thomas Schmidt reviews writers, including me.

Terry Gilliam presents '1884 Yesterdays Future'... Animation test.. — Mmm. Steampunky goodness. (Via scarlettina.)

Pemberton's French Wine of Coca — A little culinary history. C-O-L-A cola... (Thanks to goulo.)

Visualizing blood testsInformation Is Beautiful shows how much difference the presentation layer makes. (Not that we didn't already know that...)

The Right Stuff to Wear — The Smithsonian Institution's spacesuit collection. (Via a mailing list I'm on.)

Science: The Breakthroughs of 2010 and Insights of the Decade — (Thanks to lt260.)

40 Percent Of Americans Still Believe In Creationism — Shockingly, there is a strong correlation between belief in arrant counterfactual nonsense and low education levels. Likewise conservative political affiliation.

Barbour: Segregationist Citizens Councils That I Praised Were 'Totally Indefensible' — In other words, he's sorry the rest of us decoded his racist dog whistle politics. Ah, more of those justly famed conservative principles and intellectual consistency. In this same context, Ta-Nehisi Coates with more on the conservative revisionism about the Confederacy so sick that it borders on mental illness.

re 40 Percent Of Americans Still Believe In Creationism and being politically conservative.

And yet there are a number of people I know who give me blank looks when I tell that that's why their kids aren't getting a good education. It's all about keeping the electorate ignorant.
