Friday Links

If my post about the logical problems with ethics got you fired up, head on over to Ben Trube’s blog and read his rebuttal. Ben, I may not agree with you, but I truly respect your epic beard. Good day sir!

Meanwhile, it seems J.K. Rowling is working on her first adult novel. No, not that kind of “adult.” Details are still scarce – we don’t even know the title yet. All we know for sure is that it won’t involve Harry, Hermione, Hogwarts, or Hagrid.

If you’re into physics (and really, who’s not?) you may have heard the buzz a few months back about faster-than-light neutrinos. Turns out, it was really just a loose cable! Who could’ve possibly predicted this? (Answer: physicists.)

Speaking of cables, this may be the funniest Amazon review I’ve ever read. “Great cable, but too fast.”

Webcomic roundup: excellent showings this week from SMBC, xkcd, Questionable Content, and even Dilbert.

EVERY DAY I’M SHUFFLING: a probabilistic analysis.

Ladies and gentlefolk, have an unparalleled weekend.
