The Horrible, Amazing, Odd Story Behind the Stories of Thackery T. Lambshead — A book everyone should buy and read! Full of weirdos and weirdnesses.

Rainbow: Victorian meets sci-fi in steampunk — Omaha’s view of the world. (Thanks to [info]garyomaha.)

A Trip to China Can Make a Guy Hate His iPhone — My trip to China two years ago gave me a lot of frustration for completely different reasons than described in this piece. Basically, on the Chinese domestic cell networks, it worked way better than ever on AT&T in this country. Much cleaner sound, no dropped calls, no ‘dials of death’ instant five bar service in any urban or built up areas.

OctophilosophyWhen it comes to studying cephalopod brains and behavior, it helps to have a philosopher around.

When the Nurse Wants to Be Called ‘Doctor’

Common Ground for Legal Adversaries on Health Care — (Thanks to my Dad.)

Gotta Revolution: Video Mix of Occupy Wall Street Protest And Police Reaction

The Round and the OvalWaPo on Chris Christie, politics and weight. Like people criticizing McCain for being computer illiterate, criticizing Christie for his weight is a red herring.

Michele Bachmann’s campaign is sputtering in Iowa — And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving loon.

Herman Cain denies GOP’s horrible history with blacks — One again, those liberally biased facts don’t count in the conservative narrative.

As the entire structure of the medical profession was originally conceived of to keep women and the lower classes out of the class "doctor", I feel that the sooner a multiplicity of pathways to (just as an example) the role of "diagnostician" is recognised, the better.

The "nurse"/"doctor" thing is a great example of the stupid confusing unnecessary ambiguity of the word "doctor".
