Links For Friday

Stuff to help you waste time:

Paul Krugman wins the absurd-and-laughable-lack-of-self-awareness award with these two sentences: "I know that many progressives have their hearts set on seeing Barack Obama get the Democratic nomination. But politics is supposed to be about more than cheering your team and jeering the other side."

Some guy shoots and scores from all over the court - and even off it. (Via Andrew Sullivan).

In heartwarming pregnancy news, a man is due in three months. In more creepy news, a man and his daughter are living happily ever after. (Courtesy Zeyd).

Jackass extraordinaire Silvio Berlusconi claims right-wing women are more attractive than left-wing women. I've never actually a known a right-wing woman in my life, so I can neither confirm nor deny this claim. (Courtesy Asad).

A man in New York gets sick and tired of noisy people on the train and takes matters into his own hands. A great story. He's totally my new hero, by the way.

Armed and Stupid points out the PPP's kicking-the-can-down-the-road strategy vis-a-vis the judges.

Good to see that our South Asian brethren across the border share our blame-the-victim strategy when it comes to violent crimes against women.

Our readers in London should check out this exhibition dealing with the birth of Bangladesh. Read the article regardless of whether or not you can attend - it's a good piece.

Here's some more high culture for you Londoners, or residents of the UK more generally: you might be getting Hooters soon.

A friend of mine told me about this site. You can watch almost any episode of almost any television show ever created. This is a library in every sense of the word. Of course, it's free, which must mean it's illegal, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Alright people, I'm going to bed.
