Watching terrifying footage of Japan right now -- earthquakes, tsunamis, and now whirlpools. Stay safe, everyone. If you're in Japan or know someone who is, Google has made a "people finder" page where you can check in.

In America, meanwhile: if you thought what's going on in Wisconsin is bad, take a look at what they're doing in Michigan. Wow. (Thanks to Bunny for the link.)

From Zazoo: Lady Gaga has terminated her partnership with Target, due to Target not supporting same-sex partnerships. Good on Gaga.

And finally, here's some more cheerful stuff this Friday. Ohio University asked its alumni to post any weblogs; from the ensuing list, I found Stats with Cats (detailed statistics explained with the help of cats) and Flags Can Kill, a weblog exploring the (irrational?) fear of giant flags.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone, and stay safe. See you Monday!
