Late Night

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.

Completely unserious links.

* Ask yourself: What would Don Draper do? What would Joan Holloway do?

* Take the Zombie Survival Quiz. I got a Z+.

* Behold the Hand Drawn Map Association.

* Three’s a trend: Is The Dark Knight cursed?

* Two good posts from Cosmic Variance: Obama backing off of plans to cut NASA’s budget and what will the Large Hadron Collider find?

* And is Michael Cera the greatest comic mind of this generation, “the Bob Newhart of the 21st century”? You know where I stand on this.

What’s Your Virtual Life Expectancy?

What’s your virtual life expectancy? I took the test twice, and depending on the brutal honesty of my answers I can apparently expect to live between 95 and 99 years, just like Great-Grandpa Canavan. Sweet.

UPDATE: I got a second opinion: 98. Peak Oil and global warming just got a lot more pressing.

It’s really no surprise who I get nearly every time I take an online Muppet personality test.

Some people were just born to criticize.

I just took the online autism spectrum test and scored rather lower than I expected—only 22, with 32-50 indicating either Asperger’s or high-functioning autism. The OCD quiz, on the other hand…

Via The Valve.
