I read my blogroll (#3)

Norse PastafarianismIn The Skwib’s quest to justify the blogroll, here is cull of the stuff we quite enjoyed from the blogroll this week. We’ll start with a focus on science. As you may know, Mark writes science fiction in addition to satire, so it always peaks his interest.

Obi-Wan at Forward Biased has forgone his usual political preoccupations to write a great post about quantum mechanics. On a related note, via Mr. Snitch! here is the wit and wisdom of Stephen Hawking on a number of subjects Continuing in the science vein, Tasteful Future points us to Noam Chomsky’s article on intelligent design & global warming. We were outraged to see no mention of Norse Pastafarianism alongside ID.

Grumpy Old Bookman has a great post about Harlan Ellison, one of the more important writers in science fiction (or speculative fiction, the term that Elison prefers). If you haven’t been to GOB’s site, I highly recommend it. While you’re there, you can discover how the study of English literature has led to the death of the short story. (Except in genres such as SF — sorry Harlan, speculative fiction.)

On a more serious note, Mr. Sun tackles political slogans in Bush Lied. People Died.
