TGIF linkstew: the Best and the Not-So-Brightest

It could be that Issa’s investigators have some surprise witness who’s sitting on emails between Barack Obama and Lois Lerner plotting to destroy the tea party movement. But anything like this seems a pretty remote possibility at this point—and showing once again how conservatives refuse to sort fact from fiction.

Isn’t it funny the way Libertarians try to sound like anarchists but end up acting like Republicans? It almost looks like a some kind of a sham that’s used to split the vote or something.

This Darth Vader TIE-fighter wheelchair is totally bitchin’!

Only in England: Pot farm busted because of cop’s farts. That’s why we can’t have nice things.

There’s a reason I cringe when I see “Oklahoma” in a headline: Appeals court says Christian can sue Oklahoma over Native American license plate (instead of the more sensible “Go away and quit whining!” response), and Mysterious monster-like creature spotted in Oklahoma. Yeah, it could be a monster… if you are a pecan, maybe.

Some interesting musings on  the Man of Steel, Myostatin, and Super Strength.

An instrument aboard NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) found that plastics and other lightweight materials are pound-for-pound more effective for shielding against cosmic radiation than aluminum.

Researchers have sequenced the surprisingly well-preserved genome of the leprosy bacterium from medieval graves and found the modern strain has changed very little over the years.

In other old news, Gene Wilder turned 80 the other day, and he really hates Tim Burton’s recycling of Willie Wonka.

What’s the first thing you do when you find an unexploded bomb in your garden? A quick wash-up in the kitchen sink, right? The lemony scent will protect you.

When a thought experiment just isn’t enough. Engineers in the Czech Republic have successfully tested their flying bicycle project, F-bike.

Scientists say they have solved the mystery of how marine mammals can hold their breath for up to an hour.

“I think that he’s a moron and he proves that stupid has no specific political affiliation”…“I have no idea what goes into the mind of a moron like that” – Gabriel Gomez, Republican candidate for the open Massachusetts Senate seat, on GOP Rep. Trent Franks, who channeled Todd Akin when he said that the rate of pregnancies resulting from rape is “very low.”

Six months after: From Santa Monica to Philadelphia, thousands have been killed since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre. Those opposed to the on-going death toll aren’t convinced that we’ve done all we can to keep guns out of the hands of murderers.

It has already been more than 24 hours since Beck promised to “take down pretty much the whole power structure”. It could be the agents of Agenda 21, or the Common Core conspirators, or the UN’s gun confiscation squad, or even the {gasp} IRS, we just don’t know, but someone has obviously gotten to him. Maybe his paralyzed vocal cords were a warning. What other explanation could there be for his not making even a single reference to his shocking announcement yesterday? Besides his obvious mental and ethical problems, I mean?
