Linkables 9/9/8

Not to distract people from the deliciously geeky arguments on the comment thread for the previous post, so just a few links today:

Not sure I agree with number three, but here's cracked.com's "Hollywood's 5 Saddest Attempts at Feminism".

And, on that topic, if you want to avoid unnerving women, it's better to be a chauvinist than ambiguous. So, if you're not sure where you stand, just start treating women like second class citizens - it'll let them know where they stand, and will make them feel much more at ease.

This is a set of awesome physics videos, which is worth it for the number one alone, the LHC rap:

And Jon Stewart at his best, talking about right-wing-media u-turns after the naming of Sarah Palin as the Republican VP candidate:

And finally, this 80% complete cartoon/music video "there she is" is brilliant.

Enjoy. :D

That rap actually taught me more about wtf is goin' down wiv da LHC than all the other media coverage I've happened across today...

Although the backing track was incredibly annoying and I've got it stuck in my head, and I got lost when trying to follow what the Higgs-Boson particle actually does... don't get the Higgs field thing.

I love the LHC rap, it is the manifestation of awesome. And the chorus has now been stuck in my head for a couple of days. :s

As for the Higgs boson, talk to a physicist, or, you know, Wikipedia.
