A discourse on the gentle art of cooking chestnuts.
For anyone with a Wii, or knowledge thereof:

On the apparent winner of the presidential runoff election in Ecuador: "Mr Correa, who trained in the US, counter-attacked by accusing Mr Noboa of dodging tax, exploiting labourers and wanting to turn the country into a giant banana plantation.

Torchwood "Small Worlds" - quite a reversal of fortunes from earlier, indeed. Finally, I wasn't wishing everyone wasn't being such a twit. This is a good narrative development. And actually quite a strong opportunity for everyone as a result, when they're not being called upon to be total idiots. A faerly dark story, even if not without its problems, but one I kept on wanting to watch. (Just - please, Jack, ditch the blue LEDs on the Range Rover. They really don't suit you.

Pharyngula passes on word of "an episode of This American Life on Carlton Pearson, an evangelical preacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He had a thriving church with tens of thousands of members, when he had an insight: there was no hell. No eternal torment for damned souls.

Also from said weblog is what's looking, so far, as that rarest of creatures - a creationism debate that's entirely civil and cordial. (You'll want to bookmark that one, if you're at all interested - there's a lot being said)
And just for the fun of it, here are three short Powerpuff Girls music videos. ^_^
