Friday Links

I’m a bit late to the game this morning, but no apologies – it’s Good Friday, after all!

Since we just did a two-part course on sonnet-writing (see part 1, part 2) I thought y’all might appreciate this fine example of the form I discovered recently.

As reader buddhafulkat recently pointed out, April is National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo). The goal is to write a poem a day for 30 days. If you start now, you’d technically be six days behind, but I won’t tell if you won’t.

Speaking of which…I think anyone who’s written poetry knows what this comic is talking about.

SMBC Theater presents: Existential Crisis and Dragons. Roll a D20 to overcome your deep-seated sense of worthlessness!

A researcher claims the chess opening, King’s Gambit, has been solved. Yes, solved. As in, discovered the outcome assuming perfect play from both sides. I still have some doubts based on the way he described his method, but it’s a fascinating read nonetheless.

There are two types of people in this world: people who want to see President Obama giving the Vulcan “live long and prosper” hand signal next to Nichelle Nichols, and people who don’t. If you’re one of the former, click here.

Yay for webcomics about utilitarianism!

And finally: one of the best clips I’ve ever seen from Pinky and the Brain.

Have an exceptional weekend. I’ll see you on Monday!
