[links] Link salad is too pooped to pop

The 100-Year March of Technology in One Graph

The Mystery of the Flying Laptop — Does security theater make you feel safer?

Controversial new theories on the Shroud of Turin — Uh huh.

Senator appears to call Obama 'stupid' over health care — I believe "appears" is the wrong verb choice here.

Why Obama Should Run Against the Supreme CourtJust because its justices are not elected doesn't mean they're not political. It's time for some public accountability. The Supremes have certainly been placing partisan politics over the national interest since at least Bush v. Gore. They flatly admitted as much in that ruling when they disclaimed its use as precedent in future cases. Conservative chickens almost never come home to roost, however. The entire movement has been made of teflon pretty much my whole life.

DNC's Wasserman Schultz calls Republicans 'callous' toward women — Note the framing of the headline in Your Liberal Media. As if Rep. Wasserman Schultz was making this up.
