Today's links

* Trying to trace the effect on animals of the BP oil spill; lots of turtles. The 1911 Lakeview oil gusher, which filled a valley and made a multi-ton cap hover in the air.
* Bertie Wooster vs. Batman. Some Wodehouse at Gutenberg
* The unrealism of World War II as a TV show. Comments cover the Feynman character and various fronts. For the first time, I wonder if Professor X was in a wheelchair because FDR was.
* Sitting for long periods weakens your heart, even if you exercise. Well that's depressing.
* Free year of Amazon Prime for students, or maybe people with .edu addresses
* Court strikes down FCC indecency rule.
* Land of red and gold, alternate history of Australia based on having a domesticable yam. Post is the fiction, links at bottom of first post go to backstory. And introduced me to real eel farming and sedentary aboriginal societies. Good fodder for RPG worldbuilding too, don't need grains everywhere.
* Britain's NHS to be overhauled -- privatized -- by health secretary with lots of private health provider funding.
* Brief look at Sao Paulo Brazil, the world's largest sub-nation (conveniently excluding England). 42 million people, bigger than California, or Canada.
* Garfield without his own thought balloons.
* Obama's accomplishments, plus longer if sketchier list.
* Geek feminism vs. mainstream feminism
* Cory Doctorow's I, Robot, sort of Asimov crossed with 1984.
