Good Reads/Random Cool Sites (12/13/2012)

From "too big to fail" to "too big to jail": two-tiered justice in America.

Fuck you, Men's Rights Activists.

Rep. Virginia Foxx is a serial member's-only elevator-rider intimidator.

The neural bases of spiritual experiences, discussed by Oliver Sacks. (Learning about this kind of thing is basically why I stopped believing in God.)

How to email a professor. Pretty common sense, but you'd be surprised how many students seem to need this advice.

Young Earth creationist quote-mines biologists, blogger/professor asks said biologists to respond, pwnage ensues.

Looking for a job with a pathologically shit-headed, psychologically abusive tinpot office dictator with delusions of relevance? This could be your chance.

Those "Ditto" Christmas lights are real.

Kickstarter project for a Tolkien cookbook. (No doubt it will include lots of taters).

And J. R. R. Tolkien himself recites "Namárië." If you already know what that is, you're probably my soul mate. But in case you don't/you're not, it's the words to Galadriel's lament in Quenya (an Elvish language) as the Fellowship leaves Lorien in The Fellowship of the Ring. (And if you don't have at least a vague idea of what that means, why are you reading my blog?)
