Linux, politics, and other interesting things
The Reid Report has an article about the marriage pledge that Michelle Bachmann signed which implies that slavery wasn’t so bad . Greg Carey has written an interesting article for the Huffington Post about marriage and the bible , I always knew that the so-called “conservatives” weren’t basing their stuff on the Bible, but the truth surprised me.
Geoff Lemon has written an interesting blog post about the carbon tax debate in Australia . He focuses on how small it is and how petty the arguments against it are.
Lord Bacon wrote an interesting list of the top 100 items to disappear first in a national emergency . Some of them are specific to region and climate but it is still a good source of ideas for things to stockpile.
Markus Fischer gave an interesting TED talk about the SmartBird that he and his team built . A flying machine that flaps it’s wings isn’t that exciting (my local department store sells toys that implement that concept), but having one closely match the way a bird’s wings work is interesting.
