work today (ISP), work tomorrow (server room). Been putting these links through every time I sit frustrated but all of a sudden things are working better so I'm posting while I have 5 :)

I miss having days off.
So therefore, more silly links:

For [livejournal.com profile] breklor and the rest of the dinosaur invasion crew: (from [livejournal.com profile] atomicat)

Silly pic )

The indomitable [livejournal.com profile] bradhicks has posted this remarkable commentary on ancient Athens that might be apropos to the modern age. I see echos of modern Denmark and even Canada in it. Odd, that. (title "They've come to rob us of our poverty")

(BBC) Diesel pollution 'clogs arteries' (with explanation). INTERESTING!

initially from [livejournal.com profile] particle_man6 but now spreading to many sources:
CBC: Marijuana may increase risk of psychosis: study
BBC: Cannabis 'raises psychosis risk'
Occasional smokers were 40 per cent more likely to suffer from psychosis, while dedicated tokers who used marijuana daily or weekly increased their risk by 50 to 200 per cent.
Note: may not be causual link (other than other study that showed that THC triggers psychosis). May be associative (lifestyle) as the connection between smoking cigarettes and schizophrenia might be.
Aside: writing style and details between the two articles is very different. I would love to read the original research report.

political: Criminalizing the war movement - umm kind of important. (I hope it's okay to link to [livejournal.com profile] iisz' journal but this is so worth spreading, particularly to friends down stateside.

Also from [livejournal.com profile] particle_man6: CBC: Swiss to soon vote on introduction of lawyers for animals What a neat idea!

Also in the Neato Idea department: (from [livejournal.com profile] atomicat)
how to deal with Americans that don't hansei - Hansei is something that I suspect [livejournal.com profile] surrey_sucks would appreciate in a neighbour. I think I would like to study this concept more.
(associated link: Japan's anti-smoking ads) (also this interesting and less positive view)

oh also from [livejournal.com profile] atomicat: Dark Christianity - Harry Potter and the Last Crusade. A very apt description of the Dominionist movement's psychology... (a deep-seated unexpressed doubt about their religion being one such. I think that's what a few groups suffer these days)
(another ref here but I like the LJ as the discussion is good too)
