Endurance gets Klausnered

[info]jimvanpelt on psychotic persistence and creative success

Avro Vulcan over the wreck of the B-24 “Lady Be Good”, Libya, date unknown — If you can't write a haunting short story based on this image, you're not really trying.

The Silver Lining of More Cancer Deaths — Well, yes, if you want to put it that way...

When Everyday Foods Are Hard to DigestGI Specialists Suspect Specific Carbohydrates May Cause Painful Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I was diagnosed with IBS back in 2002, which in retrospect was probably a precursor to my colon cancer.

Autistic Kids May Have More Cells in Some Brain AreasMost of these neurons develop before birth, which would go against the theory that certain vaccines or other environmental influences encountered after birth may cause autism. Except that's not a theory, it's crank hysteria. Calling the thoroughly discredited vaccine-autism link a theory is like calling Creationism a theory. Or the Tooth Fairy. It's an intellectually fatuous attempt to make your reporting appear balanced. (Thanks to David Goldman.)

24 Hours at FukushimaA blow-by-blow account of the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. (Via [info]danjite.)

Mobile Flash Abandoned for HTML5: Adobe Surrenders, Apple Wins? — Presented without further comment.

The Story of Broke: Rebuilding the American Dream — Must-watch video for those who will never watch it, because, you know, liberals are evil.

Understanding the nature of hypocrisy — A little primer for my friends on the Right. And my own thoughts on the subject, from a year or so ago: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]
