Rebel, He Inks

This enormous thread on car crashes at Making Light is like the proverbial car crash itself: you can’t look away, especially if you were born and raised in a country with compulsory seatbelt laws. I can think of only a few times in my life that I haven’t worn a seatbelt in a car, which always makes me feel uncomfortably exposed. After reading those horror stories, I’m wondering why buses and trains don’t have them too.

The horror story of the week is of course Virginia Tech. Crooked Timber has a thread on how the social web has underpinned reporting of the event. One comment: “Watching the [TV] news meant I was learning things slower and filtered through Stupid.”

State-of-the-art digital photography in 1994 (via MeFi): “The first thing I said to them was, ’How do you change the battery?’ And their comment was, ’What do you mean?’”

Oh no! I accidentally reused one of my anagram titles. The whole concept is ruined now. Just pretend that the last word of the title is “skin”. Yes, I know it doesn’t make sense.
