Always fun when two nuclear powers start shooting at each other...

Around the World in Pancakes

quote [ For most Americans, the word 'pancake' conjures a stack of fluffy, hot-off-the-griddle flapjacks, a pat of butter slowly melting beneath a rivulet of maple syrup. But pancakes take myriad forms around the world, from delicate French crêpes sprinkled with sugar to spongy, sour Ethiopian injera to chewy-crisp Japanese okonomiyaki, studded with seafood and drizzled with sticky brown sauce and mayo. ]

Shattered Starlight: Sucks to Be You, Magical Girl

quote [ Farah Shaughnessy is a magical girl. Or rather, she was a magical girl. Now, instead of saving Montreal from the forces of Chaos and Entropy, she’s just trying to hold down a decent job to pay her rent and still trying to get her life together a decade after the breakup of her team. When strange things start happening around her and old enemies start to reappear, Farah has to make a choice: face the things she’s been running from all these years or put down her astral weapon hockey stick and walk away for good.

Shattered Starlight is an online graphic novel. It is intended for older teen/mature audiences, and will eventually contain violence, profanity, sex and general NSFW-ness. ]

quote [ Frauen Warte (or “Women’s Worth” at least when translated using Google) was a women’s interest magazine put out by the Nazi party starting in 1935. Published twice a week Frauen Warte was full of recommendations and “advice” on how to properly raise children so they would be strong enough to “defend their fatherland with their lives,” how to clean and maintain their homes, ]

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson unable to name one world leader he admires

quote [ In a moment that recalled Sarah Palin’s inability to name what newspapers she read, Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson was flummoxed when asked to name one foreign leader he admired during an MSNBC Townhall. ]

I used to think including this guy would improve the debates. He has nothing.

Nissan reveals its own autonomous driving technology -- a self-driving chair

quote [ Nissan’s ProPILOT technology could one day power a fleet of self-driving cars. Today, it’s powering a chair. The self-propelling chair detects surrounding chairs and moves patrons through lines in a predefined path. It’s probably not the most exciting use of autonomous technology — unless you just can’t stand waiting in line — but it’s certainly got utility. ]

That's right, it's a self-driving chair. And you aren't even surprised.

Congress Overrides Obama's Veto On Sept. 11 Lawsuit Bill

quote [ The Saudi government denies any role in those attacks, and the 9/11 Commission found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials were involved. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, though, and there have long been suspicions that some of the hijackers received support during their time in the U.S. from individuals with possible connections to the Saudi Kingdom.

Supporters of the veto override say those suspicions should be explored in a U.S. court of law. ]

I see this as a dumb bill, since one country suing another in the plaintiff's home country is kind of kangaroo court-ish. I think this just shows the fear of seeming to somehow be less patriotic about 9/11 is still alive and well.
