Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo, not all those who wander are lost

Still madness at work.

Michelle Sagara West is wise in her criticism of the Stop The Goodreads Bullies web-site.

John Scalzi, with Fuzzy Nation and now this is the geek's John Grisham. Obviously, John was a lawyer in a previous life.

Get up and dance. Okay, well, at least don't sit down so much. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The eighteen worse things for left-handed people. As a lefty myself, yes this. (Grokked from Camille Alexa)

Jim Wright fairly well sums up what I expect from the GOP Convention this year.

The long history of the Apple iPad. Lots of images from back in the 80s and 90s and the advent of the "tablet" computer. Two thoughts, now you know how much it takes to make successful products (literally decades of thought) and just how exciting those times were and how narrow our vision of computers has become (when they're everywhere and in everything now, which is really quite amazing when you think about it). (Pointed to by John by way of Dan)

Eric makes with the funny making. I guess in a world where Obama became a skilled document forger and media spoofer at the age of 2 days old, it's perfectly reasonable to accept than in the 90s, the Batman comics started the Bane thread knowing that Mitt Romney would eventually start a financial firm with a homonymic name and would be running against the ascendent Obama in 2012, when Christopher Nolan would finish his Batman Magnum Opus and feature that same villain all in a bid to knock Romney down a few points in the public mind. (Note to Rush Limbaugh, you're taking the wrong drugs, again)

"Watch out, Americans: Your thrifty, socialist neighbors to the north have stealthily become richer than you. That line is so funny on so many levels. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
