Good Reads/Random Cool Sites (7/5/2011)

Obama's Original Sin.

The Fukushima coverup unravels.

Schrödinger's Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced.

After 10 years of drug decriminalization and increased treatment in Portugal, there is less addiction, less drug-related crime, and fewer infections from shared needles.

Naomi Wolf, porn, and the misuse of dopamine.

Children are an inferior good.

The mental burden of a lower-class background.

Find out what kind of dog in a New Zealand animal shelter you most resemble. (I got a mastiff-greyhound mix, I think it was. Surprisingly cute, actually -- if I lived in NZ, I might adopt it.)

It's hard out there for an anti-gay activist who talks with a lisp and walks with a mince (Mr. Michele Bachmann, BTW).

I find this video, "Two Cousins" by Slow Club, kind of fascinating. It's just two guys swing dancing -- they do the Lindy hop and the Charleston among others, but that's about the limits of my swing knowledge -- but I like the juxtaposition of the energetic dancing with the slow music.
