weekend link spectrum

I laughed until I cried, then laughed some more:  for the grammar lovers out there… (the rest of her blog is funny as well)

Are they out there? Two alien-news sightings here: Interstellar Archaeology and UN alien-Earth liason (yes, really); also follow-up to a previous weekend links reference with this article here: Earth-like planet found? (Linked everywhere this week. Not sure I’m as enthused by the stated findings as some of the quoted scientists are, doesn’t sound quite as certain as the headline implies — also, life as we know it needs liquid water, but stating that all life definitively needs liquid water seems to me a bit limited an idea in a very very large universe)

And can we find them? A mostly theoretical (but still cool) article about warp drives.

Canada does the right thing, let’s hope they don’t screw it up in appeals.  At least now there’s more legal precedent for the concept that laws against prostitution endanger sex-workers.

My will to survive has proven to be phenomenally strong, and even so I still passionately believe in the Right to Die.  So does Terry Pratchett: read about it here.

Along the lines of last week’s links about the current epidemic of gay teen suicides, here’s one person’s attempt to educate on the realities for many queer young people: just because I didn’t kill myself, doesn’t mean I didn’t feel like I was dying

The fabulously talented Andrea of Natural Obsessions Fiber has an unexpected car repair, so if you’ve been craving some new fiber, now would be the time to buy some!  She has top quality, gorgeously-dyed natural fibers just begging to be spun or knitted into beautiful wearable art!  Also, a 40% sale going on this weekend, even more reason to buy pretty things.
