Superman Defies God, USA in Action Comics' Landmark 900th Issue — Superman never made any money, saving the world from Solomon Grundy...

Northwest Greenland Canyons — Oooh. A pretty from NASA's Earth Observatory site. Also, I note passim that this is what the Columbia River Gorge will look like during the next ice age.

Giant Squid Eye...in a Jar: Big Pic — (Thanks to David Goldman.)

The High Cost of Low Teacher Salaries

Undocumented Immigrants Paid $11.2 Billion In Taxes While GE Paid Nothing — Clearly we should require GE to show a birth certificate before it can get a driver's license.

Russia's Crime of the CenturyHow crooked officials pulled off a massive scam, spent millions on Dubai real estate, and killed my partner when he tried to expose them. (Snurched from Dark Roasted Blend.)

Birthers, buffoonery and a sad discourse — Birtherism is the evolution denialism of electoral politics. Intellectually and morally bankrupt, and just plain stupid besides.

Jay, I appreciate the education-related link. In fact, it's the second one I've bookmarked to share with others due to your link salad postings.

Oh dear God, the comments on the Superman link are appalling.

I loved the "You do know Superman isn't real, right?" one, though. :)

AotD: neither by preference, but if compelled by social duty (or at gunpoint) I'd pick tables... at least you're doing something mentally while losing your money, instead of only getting an extremely-low-impact one-sided upper-body workout.

I appreciate the teacher link too. I'm hoping something happens to change our education system--or that we can change it, even. Especially as a current undergraduate seriously considering getting a Masters in Education. It would be nice if I could make a salary I could live on, and give students an education they want to have, rather than one they can't wait to leave.
