* @Mariborchan has a large collection of Slavoj Žižek lectures for your edification and enjoyment.

* The Mets and the mob.

* This piece on how to throw away books from the New York Times annoyed me far more than was reasonable. Can’t be bothered to finish One Hundred Years of Solitude? Can’t be bothered to even get the title right? Really?

* Nazi invasions of America, c. 1942. Via MeFi.

* About six million Americans receiving food stamps report they have no other income, according to an analysis of state data collected by The New York Times. In declarations that states verify and the federal government audits, they described themselves as unemployed and receiving no cash aid — no welfare, no unemployment insurance, and no pensions, child support or disability pay.

* And you can’t bring bottled water on a plane in the name of safety, but airlines can force their pilots to fly fatigued.
