[LINK] A Thursday Links Roundup

It's that time of the week once again.

  • The matter editation that, Charlie Stross tells us, Wil McCarthy originates is an interesting idea. It reminds me of Greg Bear's thoughts on the same technology in his unrelated novels A Forge of God and Moving Mars.

  • At Far Outliers, Joel explores coal mining disasters and their long history throughout the world. The thing is, in the First World they're safe.

  • Nalo Hopkinson writes about the problem of finding the right words.

  • The Marmot's Hole publicizes Mongolia's support for North Korean reform. This reform, Mongolia argues, must be self-directed.

  • Phil Edwards at Actually Existing comments upon the few results of Britain's alliance with Uzbekistan and its use of evidence acquired via torture.

  • Over at The Pagan Prattle, feorag discovers that Pat Robertson blames Sharon's stroke upon his cession of the land God gave Israel. Eugene Volokh wonders how Stalin and Arafat managed to live so long. Andrew Sullivan points out that Robertson agrees with Iranian President Ahmedinejad.
