Linked List

Glanced at briefly, filed away for future reading, and presented here for your edutainment.
  • Packaging food for consumption in space.  Not as easy as you might think.
  • Drone strikes are bad enough, even without the moral preening and hypocrisy.
  • Who in the world ever could have thought that the Arab Spring might have some not-so-good consequences?  Aside from anyone with two functioning brain cells, I mean.
  • Ace of Spades notes that If It Will Save a Single Life, We Must Get Piers Morgan's Stupid Fat Face off the Television.
  • In a completely coincidental story totally unrelated to anything that Piers Morgan might have inspired, Noah Rothman notes that the media displays admirable restraint when they can't link a shooter to the Tea Party.  Baby steps.  Next goal would be to stop soiling themselves when around certain people, I suppose.
  • Oh, hey - Piers Morgan again.  You think that the man would eventually run out of feet to insert in his pie-hole, but you'd be wrong.  The Smallest Minority points out item number mumblety-large in the list of things that Piers Morgan doesn't get.
  • Ah, who am I kidding?  The Silicon Graybeard points out that It's Not About Guns and Maybe It's Not Even About Control, and really, I have trouble finding fault with his argument.
  • Low-Tech Magazine.  Ironically enough, available online, as it its sister site, No Tech Magazine.  Mind you, I am not complaining.  Just pointing out the irony.
  • Google releases a C++ B-tree library that implements STL container interfaces.  Good for them, and good for us code monkeys.  Seriously, if I had a quarter for every time I wished I had a good STL compatible B-tree implementation in the past year, I'd have... eh, half a buck.  So, you know, not life changing, but certainly very cool.
  • The O'Floinn talks about the price of tea in China.  Well, not really.  However, he does discuss the value of gold, which is marginally more interesting.
  • David Horowitz has some notes for the Republicans on that pesky "winning" thing they seem to keep leaving off of their campaign checklists.  Worth noting as anybody who ends up in the sights of the progressives will face these issues, because let's face it... they don't care about the issues, they don't care about the people, they don't care about anything except power.
Finally, for your entertainment: A production of F. Paul Wilson's classic short story. "Lipidlegging":
