What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Weekend Linkee-poo bites into the sweet cakes

If we don't talk before then, and you haven't already, go and vote on Tuesday.

While everyone conflates Halloween, Samhein, and Dia de Los Muertos, they're actually on different days. Like Nov 2 is actually the day of the dead, and when you should feed them. Noted because this has been plot points in some of my stories. Not also that it's not only a mid and South American custom. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

Thirteen writing prompts from McSweeny's. Ha! (Grokked from Christine Purcell)

St Cuthbert Gospel sells for $9M. The Gospel is Europe's oldest surviving, intact, book. It apparently survived by being buried with St. Cuthbert and so avoided being pillaged by vikings. (Grokked from Sarah Goslee)

Thirty household uses for Coke. Note, some of these are apocryphal. (Grokked from George Takei)

Space is hard.

Corporate lobbyist tells how he creates fake expert groups to sow doubt into the public's mind. Just in case you ever wanted to know how it's done (and where Fox News gets their "experts"). (Grokked form Matt Staggs)

Proof that conservatives aren't dealing with reality. Seriously, Mitt Romney, it's the Democrats blocking legislation? They have drugs to help with this. But he is correct that the GOP lead House did look at the Senate immigration bill and thought waiting to see if they could win the Senate and get something more in line with their ideology.

Tweet of my heart: @DjangoWexler Vote against the guy who hasn't filled out his website's metadata, so Google lists it as "My campaign site info here!"
