Late night links.

* Wikipedia’s list of common misconceptions.

* It’s good to live in a country without nobility or hereditary office.

* Are you a film addict? I am 55.2% yes.

* John Updike considers Mars.

* Matt, Josh, and Ezra consider the fillibuster and the extent to which we should just dump the damn thing.

* Coleman has gone to the Minnesota Supreme Court (a majority of whom have apparently been appointed by Tim Pawlenty) to ask that improperly rejected absentee ballots not be counted in the recount. I’ve looked, but I haven’t actually found any sort of legitimate reason why he thinks ballots that were improperly rejected should stay improperly rejected, other than “I might win that way.” Some commentary at TPM.

* Scientists have found the first unequivocal evidence that the Arctic region is warming at a faster rate than the rest of the world at least a decade before it was predicted to happen. We’re so very screwed.
