[links] Link salad wakes up with a clear head, finally

A reader reviewsRolling Steel” by and me — Specifically, she talks about the podcast version, read by Sean Farrell and Mur Lafferty.

The soda-pop map — I used to say “Coke” generically, these days I say “soda.” Where do you fall on this continuum? (Thanks to .)

Bridge to Nowhere: a Map of Golden Gate Jumpers — Another odd one from Strange Maps.

Solar for Dark Climates — I love the headline alone, but the article is interesting as well, about hybrid solar systems for northern latitudes. Mmm, Stirling engines.

Evidence based revenge — Ben Goldacre on revenge and bitterness. Money shot: Put very simply, if we desire it, does revenge work? People certainly believe in it, from modern thrillers such as Hamlet and Moby Dick, to classics like Kill Bill and Death Wish I-V.

Get Fuzzy on American political parties — Hahahahahahahahahaha.

?otD: Soda or pop?

    I live in Northern Germany and we already use solar power. On the roof of my house there are panels for both electricity and hot water generation. For the winter, we also have an oil furnace coupled with a generator, so we can generate electrical energy while heating the house. Interesting article, though. I’ve printed it out.

    When in the US, I’ve always used “Coke” as a generic name for softdrinks, thanks to spending a year in Mississippi as a small child. Not that it really matters, cause I grew out of sugary drinks some twenty years ago. I still like the map, though. I’ve used it in my classes on occasion.
