7 Working Days Left Till Christmas is Past

And I'm short of time so here are Saber and Rin from Fate Stay Night


...as well as some quick links....

As most of you know, some asshat set fire to the Wasilla Church that includes amongst its members, Governor Palin. There is now a fundraiser to help.

The Anchoress has some interesting thoughts on the shoe incident.

Via Steven Den Beste comes this humorous translation fiasco.

The Carnival of Space has been taken over by those pesky antipodians.

Finally Colleen Doran posts a well researched and interesting piece on the evolution of Shojo Manga, a possible american connection and the awful story behind that story. Read the whole thing

.(Note in reference to her post, that the culture museum in Nagasaki has a large display of  pre Tezuka Girls Manga some of which are seen here)

Update: Rand Simberg has posted a long and informative article from 2004 never before published in full, debunking several myths of spaceflight and proposing a productive way forward...I've added it to this previous post of mine which looks at some of the same issues but does so rather less well.

1 I always approve of Rin and Saber at any point for any reason.
