Worth Reading – Part VIII

It has been a while since my last post so I thought I’d do a new “Worth reading” from my RSS feed. This last week has been the semester start week at my university and I have been busy working in the student pub at our mathematics and science faculty and also helping a friend move. Anything but being online.

Anyway. Here are a few highlights …

Here’s yet another facepalm moment provided to you by the right wing nut-jobs in the US.

In Russia, state bigotry has reached a new level with the conviction of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot. Russia under Putin is being described as a “regressive, oppressive kleptocracy”. Sounds about right.

Fun & Nerdy

I just had to add this one from one of my online friends. Decorating bracelets and shoes with comics, and nerdy earrings! Double win!
