I kinda think this is why Scotland wants to split
Did You Like the Human Centipede? Okay, Do You Think You'd Like It Better-- With Walruses?
Kevin Smith's new movie seems... odd
Update: Apparently it's concevied as a comedy-horror movie, which I guess excuses the swipe


Burger King Japan offering black burger
Black bun, black cheese, black sauce, and black pepper meat. "'[P]eople continued to come back for them because of their taste,' a spokeswoman for the company told Japan Real Time." [rdbrewer]

Guess who has the highest K-index (Kardashian index). [rdbrewer]

LiveScience: King Richard III's Final Moments Were Quick & Brutal
"But Richard III was almost certainly brought down by more than one man — and more than one weapon." They need to make a movie about this guy and correct the record that was written by the victors. [rdbrewer]
The calculus of contagion. A lucid explanation of why some contagions die out and others keep expanding. What we still lack is an equally lucid explanation of why this Ebola outbreak is so different from all the others over the past 40 years, none of which has resulted in more than a few hundred fatalities, whereas this one may end up with tens of thousands or even worse. [Fritzworth]
SteynOnline: The Lonesomest Mann in Town
"[T]he ACLU, The Washington Post, NBC News, The Los Angeles Times and various other notorious right-wing deniers all filed amici briefs opposed to Michael Mann and his assault on free speech.... [Y]esterday was the deadline, and not a single amicus brief was filed on behalf of Mann. Not one." Via @TheH2. [rdbrewer]


Ashe Schow: The breakout star of the 2014 primaries is not a candidate
"Those following election night coverage on the Internet this primary season may have noticed that a newcomer — the Ace of Spades Headquarters Decision Desk (that’s @AOSHQDD on Twitter) — often tallied the votes faster and called the results sooner than the Associated Press. The Decision Desk, run by blogger [The Meatball] as an extension of the conservative Ace of Spades blog, began as an idea a decade ago. Via @JohnEkdahl. [rdbrewer]


Robert Tracinski: Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Science of Smug Condescension
"It’s as if they took Sagan and decided to decrease the earnest thoughtfulness while increasing the preening vanity and smug condescension." [rdbrewer]


Ben Domenech: Rand Paul Responds To His Critics On ISIS And Foreign Policy
Interview. [rdbrewer]

The Space Pen is Mightier than the Bollocksed Anecdote
"It certainly sounds like Tyson is implying that NASA put US taxpayers on the hook for [insert Dr. Evil voice] one meeeeeeelion dollars rather than using a cheap, simple pencil." But the company developed the pen on its own. [rdbrewer]

Beautiful time-lapse photography of aurora display over Finland
Vimeo. Via @coreyspowell. [rdbrewer]

Hirsi Ali Criticizes Radical Islam at Yale
The parts of her speech I saw were excellent. [rdbrewer]
Fleming strikes again with another nifty short story.
"Anyway, the possibility of the universe collapsing at any moment is spilt milk now, so no use fretting over whether people should or shouldn't have made deals with demons in the past." [ArthurK]

Sean Davis: Another Day, Another Quote Fabricated By Neil deGrasse Tyson
"Tyson’s story has three central claims: 1) Bush uttered that precise phrase, 2) in the days immediately after 9/11, 3) in order to distance American religion from that practiced by radical Muslims. As you have probably already guessed, every single claim is false. Every one!" [rdbrewer]



Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos's Startup Is Part of Bid to Deliver Astronauts
They're working on a "space taxi." [rdbrewer]

The Tennessean: Liver transplant plan could punish donor-rich South
"UNOS may redraw liver-sharing regions. The new map would result in more donations from Tennessee being shipped to states beyond its existing district, which also includes Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia." Not only do they give more money to charity in the south, they also donate organs at a much greater rate. [rdbrewer]

Buzzfeed: Ted Cruz Had Advance Warning Of Alleged Hezbollah Ties At Christian Conference
"Other members of Congress — Sen. Mark Kirk, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and Rep. Ted Deutch — were also scheduled to appear at the summit, but pulled out when they learned the information beforehand." [rdbrewer]
Japanese Woman Has Own Stem Cells Injected Into Her Eyes
I assume this is some weird sex/porn thing
