io9 discusses my novella, Love in the Time of Metal and Flesh

Yesterday on Twitter and Facebook, I linked to this fascinating article on Julian dating — Which is to say, timekeeping. Unfortunately, a whole lot of people thought I was talking about Julian Assange. Hilarity ensued.

The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas — Hahahahah.

Suitcase Santas — Art guru James Gurney on the traveling spirit of the season.

UFO Santa — From x-planes.

Santa Claus was from Turkey? — Well, yes. Didn't everyone know this? Home of all right jolly old elves.

Walking Santa, Talking ChristWhy do Americans claim to be more religious than they are? Because, um, Christians are an oppressed minority in this country. Yeah, that must be it!

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays Are people really so stupid that they are willing to let a bunch of cranks and media opportunists convince them that A) there is a War on Christmas, and B) wishing someone "happy holidays" is somehow akin to attacking their religious beliefs? Apparently, many people are precisely that stupid. (Thanks to lt260.)

?otD: Turkey, ham or goose?
