A reader reacts to Green — Somewhat with the liking.

Anthologizing: The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities — A review with kind words about my story therein.

Subterranean Chronicles — A cool new Web comic.

IQ changes in teens as brain changes, study finds — Heh. Anybody with a teen in the house could have told you this.

Old American theory is ‘speared’An ancient bone with a projectile point lodged within it appears to up-end – once and for all – a long-held idea of how the Americas were first populated. I don’t pretend to understand the politics of Clovis vs pre-Clovis North American anthropology, but I know they’ve been weird for years.

Worm Offspring Inherit Longevity Even without the GenesWorms given life-span-enhancing mutations produce offspring that lack the responsible genes but live longer anyway. Welcome to epigenetics.

A skeptical physicist ends up confirming climate data — Oops. A Koch-sponsored study seeking to overturn climate change data confirms it. Darn those facts biased against the conservative position. (Via [info]danjite.)

Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world — The real Illuminati. (Via [info]danjite.)

Misportraying the Occupy Wall Street Protesters — Some Democratic political idiocy for a change. Tools.

Occupy Wall Street Demographic Survey Results Will Surprise You

Cain: ‘If You Don’t Have A Job And You Are Not Rich, Blame Yourself!’ — Ah, compassionate conservatism. It’s views like this that ensure I’ll never be a conservative. I believe in compassion and opportunity, unlike citizen Cain and the millions in the GOP base who applaud sentiments like this. Are you proud of your Republican party?

The orange standard — Sheer political lunacy of a delightful sort. Paging Herman “9-9-9″ Cain to the produce section. (Snurched from Steve Buchheit.)

‘They’ve turned the world inside out’ — Some sobering analysis of Republican obstructionism on the president’s jobs bill. The saddest part is how routine this insanity has become.

Birthday drinks with johnnyeponymous at Single Barrel. I'm hoping they're offering their winter drinks, because I want a Tom&Jerry, damnit.
