Thursday Morning Filler: Links, bitchez

Pax Arcana

I’ve been in the weeds for so long that my pants are covered in burrs and there’s a family of earwigs setting up camp in my socks. As I continue to slash my way back to your loving embrace, please enjoy these links:

  • This CNBC guy is literally losing his mind. It’s transfixing. And hilarious. [Gawker]
  • If you think the Redskins shouldn’t change their nickname, you’re a fucking douchebag. For real. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • As if you needed another reason to love Jimmy Kimmel, he tore up a roomful of TV and ad execs to their faces a few days ago. [NYT]
  • Remember that asshole mockingbird that you got in a fight with? Well guess what — he remembers you, too. [Guardian]
  • This optical illusion is the coolest explanation for what curveballs look like to a batter and why they’re so hard to hit. [Illusion of the Year]
  • If I lived in Boston proper, I would definitely vote for Bill Trabucco. His Web site is a thing to behold. [Welcome to My Web site]
  • The reason the standard text message is only 160-characters long is because a guy with a typewriter in 1985 thought that was “sufficient.” Just RTFA. [LA Times]
