There’s a draft (or three) in here…

Like you, sometimes I find links to sites or have an idea for a blog post that I’ll pop into a draft entry to be finished off later. I usually don’t have more than 1 or 2 sitting out there, though, because I’m generally anal about keeping these things cleaned up.

Well, apparently, I’ve been a little less so this past year, because I took a peek at the outstanding posts and found 13 of the suckers. After deleting the ones that don’t make sense to finish off, here is some of the linky goodness I intended to share with you earlier…

The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-Gorskii Photographic Record Recreated (A Library of Congress Exhibition) – Amazing color photographs of Imperial Russia by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii made between 1907 and 1915.

How to make a Green Lantern ring – “In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight! Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power.. Green Lantern’s light!” (via Brian)

U.S. Intelligence Community – After reading that the National Intelligence Estimate was made by “all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies,” I had to wonder, “16? How many spy groups does a country need? And how do we know there’s only 16? Aren’t some of them like secret and stuff? And is it a gated community? Is there a safehouse owners association?”

Caroline Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama and I Refuse to Buy into the Obama Hype (now a supporter) – A two-fer set of political links, ‘cuz I’m an irrational, moon-eyed Obama nut who doesn’t see past his pearly white teefs, don’tchaknow. Not that I’m bitter about being labeled a delusional, naive, zombie, fanboy or anything… in any case, the only reason I’ll torture my brain with another 6+ months of paying attention to this crap is the fact that it’s the best soap opera on TV (until Heroes comes back). I know who I’m voting for in November, and it sure as hell ain’t McBush.

Finally, here’s a little meme that I’m warping a tiny bit and calling the “3-2-1 Wiki Meme” (mostly because I don’t like the original instructions where you tag others).

This is what you do:

  1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday.
  2. Find 3 events that happened on that day.
  3. Find 2 other people who were born that day.
  4. Find 1 holiday that is celebrated on that day.

Here’s mine:

Three events that happened on this day.
1905 – Albert Einstein publishes the article “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, where he introduces special relativity.
1971 – Ohio ratifies the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, lowering the voting age to 18, thereby putting the amendment into effect.
1997 – First Harry Potter book is published.

Two birthdays.
1891 – Ed “Strangler” Lewis, American professional wrestler (d. 1966)
1934 – Harry Blackstone Jr., American magician (d. 1997)

One holiday.
Independence Day in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
