Links With Your Coffee


The Kindle is not for everyone. All the members of my immediate family own Kindles, but only my wife and I use them regularly. One son uses his ocassionaly the other, I believe got one not to be left out, now says fuck the Kindle. Until now it was only available in the US, that's changing the International Version of the Kindle will be shipping soon. If you decide the Kindle is for you, purchasing it through this link will get me a nice bit of change, and with my hosting bill coming due every little bit helps.

  • Hell in a Handbag (tip to Pedantsareus)

  • Bobby Fischer's visit to the Philippines, Tokyo, Hong Kong in 1973
    The legendary eleventh World Champion died on January 17, 2008. A year and a half later new pictures have emerged that show Bobby Fischer after his win against Boris Spassky in Reyjkavik in 1972, just before he went into reclusive hiding, initially in Pasadena, California. The pictures are from a visit to the Philippines, Tokyo, Hong Kong in 1973. Unusual and strangly moving.

  • Up to Her Neck in Pink Ribbons and Smiley Faces
    “Bright-Sided” does have a point to make. And it’s a point so simple that it can be aptly summarized by the book’s subtitle, “How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America.” Ms. Ehrenreich thinks the prevalence of bogus optimism has weakened America, and she is willing to shoot fish in barrels to make that case. There is no shortage of megachurch preachers, self-help gurus, business coaches and positive-thinking academics whose idiocy and avarice can be exposed by Ms. Ehrenreich’s high beams.
  • Tony Blair groups atheists with violent religious extremists in Georgetown speech
    How different are dogfighting and football?
  • A creative celebration of evolution
    A sporadic eruption of desert art nods to humans’ ability to adapt. (Thanks Jason)



    I thought it was Handbasket?

    It was originally "going to hell in a handcart" - modified (I believe) by the colonials to "handbasket" which is not a term familiar to English pedants.

    Does the Kindle work in Canada yet? If so I would definitely buy one through your link!

    I just checked no Canada, have you considered moving to Western Europe.
