A quick, late linkee-poo. Still swamped at work. For the reboot, took our 3rd quiz today for Radiologic Principles and I scored 20 out of 20. That brings my overall class average to 94%, which is the lowest A. There's still 80 some points to be awarded in the class (finals in lecture and lab) for a total of 230 points overall. I'm not out of the woods, yet, but feeling much better about my performance.

The Oatmeal with the obvious difference between slow and no internet. Having suffered at 56k (which acted more like 44k) for way too long, oh yes, this.

A Swedish toy reseller creates a gender-swapped catalog and people freak the fuck out. Good thing we live in an enlightened world, eh? (Grokked from Steven Gould)
North Korea is really that bad. In the West we can ignore The Hermit Kingdom when it's not shoved in our faces because they're launching a rocket or making big booms. But everyday, most of Asia must deal with their presence. And for the people of North Korea, it's a nightmare from which they can not wake.
Alligator Quotient: Eyeball high again, I see.
