Well, it’s Friday, and it’s pretty chaotic in Ohio since Boehner announced he was resigning. So let’s move on to some links from others, before diving back into the newstream!

From Satori: History, cats and ships! It’s a perfect lecture!

From Julie: “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is the most iconic song, according to science. I was about to argue, but then I saw the full list and it makes more sense. Lots of “classic” sounding songs there.

Back in the ‘80s, a young writer named Neil Gaiman wrote a book on a young band named Duran Duran. John Scalzi has some thoughts about it!

A professor at Ithaca conducted a study tracking all the role-playing game (RPG) books in public and academic libraries. The more you know.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you next week.
