If all stories were written like science fiction stories — Hahaha. Very bad science fiction stories, admittedly. (Via David Goldman.)

First Measurement of 'Wordquakes' Shaking the BlogosphereCertain words disrupt the blogosphere in the same way that earthquakes shake the planet. And that makes them ripe for an earthquake-like magnitude rating.

A Year in the Slow Lane in a '30 Ford — That be some dedication.

Back to the Future — An amazing photo re-creation project. (Thanks to [info]willyumtx.)

Shipping cupcakes down the thermal exhaust port — A video of the unboxing of an entry in the cupcake shipping challenge. Color me impressed. (Via [info]scarlettina.)

Australians hit by Cyclone Yasi warned to stay away from deadly giant birds — Now that is a headline. (Thanks to [info]danjite.)

Up telescope! Search begins for giant new planetTyche may be bigger than Jupiter and orbit at the outer edge of the solar system. (\Bad Astronomy responds.

Evidence of a Spurious Origin — Ta-Nehisi Coates on nineteenth century scientific racism. Both interesting and depressing.

The leaked campaign to attack WikiLeaks and its supporters — Glenn Greenwald on Wikileaks and his own targeting in response. No matter what your politics, this will likely strike you as appalling.

Selection Bias? PolitiFact Rates Republican Statements as False at 3 Times the Rate of Democrats — Or possibly just the Palin effect.

House GOPer against big government health care enjoys taxpayer-funded state government insurance — Further evidence that the core tenet of contemporary conservatism is 'right for me but not for thee.' See the only moral abortion is my abortion for a much larger, more devastating example of this.

Be Nice To Bigots: Republican leaders tiptoe around the smear campaign against Obama's faith and citizenship.That's four straight interviews in which the country's three top Republicans—the speaker of the House and the GOP leaders in each chamber—have refused to condemn the spreading of lies about Obama's faith and citizenship. [...] Why can't Boehner, Cantor, or McConnell speak that bluntly? Why won't they call a lie a lie? If they want to be leaders, it's time to lead. Your Republican party: proudly standing up for what's right and true in America. (Except when it pisses off their base, of course.)

?otD: What happened in the midnight hour?

RepubliKan can't lead because they are unable to.

They're very good at dictating, however.

>>If all stories were written like science fiction stories<<

Sounds like a lot of historical fiction I've read, too.
