Linkables 22/10/8

I don't want to keep citing busyness as my reason for a lack of posting, but I've spent hardly any time at my computer recently. I've got a few 'proper' posts in the works, but until then, have a look at these:

How does the most popular social networking site differ as you go around the world? Looks like it's updated monthly with the "gains/losses" in the style of a political campaign.

And speaking of politics, what's not to love about the Sarah Palin Debate Flowchart?

And, still on politics, anyone convinced by this anti-Obama video should probably have their vote taken away.

Classic photographs recreated in Lego! The set-up shots are great too.

Finally a brilliant webcomic that's been around for ages but which I've only just started to read: Wondermark. These are just a few that made me laugh, but I haven't even scratched the surface of the archives...

Read it. Read it now.

That video is scary. What is scarier is that some people probably are dumb enough to fall for it. It's simple, it's repetitive and I can hear him yelling "Taaaaaaar-zaaaan" in my head right now.

Urgh. Racist, hypocritical bullshit. I can't believe he is actually legally allowed to say things like that. If something like that was screened on British TV, he'd be slapped with a libel action in microseconds. Hell, Obama could even sue him in a British court because I've just watched it at a computer in Britain.

To clarify: I know very little about American libel law, but they tend to have a very different system to ours and especially around things like trials where they allow cameras in court and have all kinds of pre-trial reporting that just wouldn't be allowed here...
