Mad Men Season 11, Hallucinogenic Spores, and Adamantium Bones

with 3 comments

* Put This One finds a wonderful image from Mad Men, Season 11. (Thanks, Jacob!)

* The Chicago Tribune explains why doing research in the archives is so fun. The answer may surprise you! Hint: Fungus on books, they say, is a likely source of hallucinogenic spores.

* The American Family Association ups the ante on the whole “Ground Zero mosque” pseudo-scandal: No more mosques in America, period.

* The Founding Fathers never intended to separate church and state. And they were 17 feet tall and had adamantium bones.

* Rachel Maddow on the war on brains.

* And Political Wire brings the news that we’re actually going to eliminate birthright citizenship: 49% of Americans already want to, before the fools and liars in the media have even had their chance to beat the drum.

* The climate situation is just obscenely dire.

* And just in time for our triumphant return: Huge hand-drawn panorama of London, 1845.

  1. There was a significant challenge to spacetime recently (and it’s not from conservapedia) in a paper that has apparently already received 250 citations in academic journals. http://www.metafilter.com/94622/Its-the-end-of-spacetime-as-we-know-it-and-I-feel-fine. I have no problem with this because I think speculation on time travel is a waste of intellectual energy (sorry, dude).

  3. I strongly suspect that the fascination for Mad Men will have evaporated by the time the era of leisure suits and big-collared open-necked shirts comes around. I wonder if that version of Draper is also wearing platform shoes.
