The Atlantic: I Can Never Have Too Many Mechanical Pencils.

I find a 0.9mm is just a smidge thick, but near-impossible to break. So it’s become my go-to mechanical pencil.

Archaeology News Network: Amphipolis dig shows no doorway to fourth chamber.

Let’s hope further access is only obscured and that the existing tomb is all there is (and stripped).

Dazed: Top 10 cult leather icons.

Okay, how could such a hip online magazine forget to include the Lizard King in his leather pants? Huh? Dump Cruise in Top Gun. That had very little cultural effect, comparatively.

The Atlantic: It’s Coming - $65 Oil.

A welcome reprieve. I still maintain most of Clinton’s ‘good economy’ was the result of lower energy prices. Notice the Fed is making noise about ending the stimulus. Interesting timing. I hope this puts the kibosh on new fracking starts - they want to encroach Chaco.  That’s a big NO from me.

Valet./Explainer: Hangers.

My cheat is to use a tubular plastic hanger and pin my neckline with clothespins so the shoulder seams don’t end up with nipples.

Youtube: 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman.

Excellent use of hidden video to illuminate a problem men only theoretically understand. Face it - we men would be in someone’s face after the third catcall, or filing harrassment suits. Walking through your office and having someone say “Oh, you got an ass on you” or “Shake it, baby” on a regular basis would probably break your composure quite effectively.

Later: Apparently this video is attracting rape threats. What’s happened to America, and ‘our’ internet?

Metafilter curiousity.

When I visit Metafilter via RSS, I’m seeing a very modern redesign. Anyone else?  Looks nice.

[Later: Ah, new design when I’m logged out, old design when I’m logged in. DNS percolating changes, I assume.]

Hey, I passed through there many a time on A/V shows. I still have, somewhere in the slightly-tame black hole of my closet, my TWA frequent flyer miles. Thanks to PapaScott on FB for finding it.

DeSmogBlog: When the Shale Runs Dry - A Look at the Future of Fracking.

... the cement plugs have a life expectancy of roughly 20 years. This means that every two decades, it is necessary to drill through the old plugs and install new ones. Some wells are even costlier and more complicated to seal because they are now underwater, requiring the deployment of barges and scuba divers.” Fracking is a ‘gift’ that keeps on giving to taxpayers, long after the oil and gas folks are gone with their profits.
