Weekend link dump for October 6

How did I manage to reach this point in my life without knowing what a TOOTBLAN is?

An interactive map of possibly inhabitable planets in the Milky Way Galaxy.

I’m sorry to hear that “Hoarders” was canceled, but I am glad to see that the show had a positive effect.

Fine, standing desks are good for you. I still think one would be too hard on my back and feet.

Facebook really doesn’t like boobs.

Martin Freeman has been tapped to star on [FX]’s reboot of Joel and Ethan Coen’s adaptation of Fargo.” This could fall anywhere on the awful-to-awesome spectrum. It might be worth watching just to see a Brit talk with a Minnesota accent.

Ted Cruz continues to be a lying liar who lies a lot. I’m no fancy Harvard-trained lawyer, but I’m pretty sure the Founding Fathers never espoused “I’ll stamp my feet and hold my breath till I turn purple!” as a legitimate form of government.

Thanks to Obamacare, a series like Breaking Bad will never make sense again. Maybe if Ted Cruz said he was fighting for all the would-be Walter Whites out there, he’d have gotten more traction.

Yeah, I pretty much leave my laptop plugged in all the time. And for what it’s worth, the times I do use it not plugged in, I have not noticed a dropoff in battery life.

Your false equivalence guide to the shutdown and debt ceiling.

Maybe John Boehner doesn’t have to worry about his right flank after all.

“A rolled up newspaper that seems to a human to be moving rapidly appears to [flies] to be travelling through treacle.”

When you’ve lost Trent Lott

“Here’s the bottom line: in most American workplaces, the boss can fire any brony who loves My Little Pony. It’s totally legal. And that’s the problem.”

“Other people may not confuse cows for their phones, but research shows phantom vibration syndrome, or its other nicknames — like hypovibochondria or ring-xiety — are a near-universal experience for people with smartphones.”

I never do the drive thru lane. In my experience, it’s always faster to order to go at the counter.

Damon Lindelof says his final piece about the finale of Lost. Warning: Contains spoilers for the Breaking Bad finale, if you haven’t seen it but still want to.

Suck it, Wall Street tycoons. You’re as much to blame for the mess we’re in as anyone.

RIP, Tom Clancy.

“For a country that fancies itself the greatest democracy on Earth, the fact that a small band of outliers in one party can essentially shut down the federal government over a petty political brawl seems woefully undemocratic.”

“As the federal government shutdown stretches into its fourth day, 20 members of the Republican’s Tea Party faction announced this morning they would be willing to support a clean budget resolution bill in exchange for the president’s firstborn daughter, Malia Obama.” Go on, tell me you didn’t believe that for at least a few seconds.

A-Rod versus MLB. For whom does one root?

How’s that outreach to women going, Republicans?

Welcome back, TBogg! The internets missed you.
