- Your Chance To Leave Earth With NASA's Greatest Astronauts (from io9). io9 previews the upcoming "When We Left Earth" DVD release (with clips and stills). It's on my list of awesome space DVDs to acquire, because it's awesome!
- The International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge 2008 (from Science/AAAS). Winning pictures, illustrations, and videos about science. Very fascinating and well done.
- US Politics at Ambling Along the Aqueduct. Four articles where Timmi Duchamp talks about political issues (finance, cultural divides, Sarah Palin, and Joe Biden). Very insightful and illuminating.
- Welcome to Gilead, Governor Palin (From truthout). Sarah Palin, as a representative of a character from "The Handmaid's Tale". Frightening, especially as I've read the book.
- E-Mancipate: a project to accelerate the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item (via mightymur). E said "how about not?". For me, it would yank out my leg hairs so I'll pass.
