September 9th, outsourced

I haven't read every word of every entry, but The Atlantic's "What People Don't Get About My Job" is entertaining (and informative) reading.

Conflict History invites you to "browse the timeline of war and conflict across the globe." Don't mind if I do, thanks!

Via Bear Grylls' Twitter feed, I bring you EPIC FROG.

And via Ryan Van Duzer of Out of the Wild fame, I bring you Tour de Fat 2011. [HT Jeremy]

The headline says it all: one sperm donor, 150 offspring. Aye caramba. [HT Jeremy]

No, seriously, why are college textbooks so expensive?? [HT Lyse]

I didn't watch the whole thing but even a few minutes here and there is enough to convey the hilarity that is How Black People See White Culture. It's every filmstrip I ever watched in social studies class, reversed. [HT Andrew]

A Walgreen's pharmacist was fired a few months ago for shooting back at armed robbers, and now the pharmacist is suing (Walgreen's). Obviously we don't know all the details, but a single viewing of the video was enough to convince me that while he may have technically violated company policy, the dude was well within his rights to do what he did. Wow.

In 9/11 coverage, we have New York Magazine's riveting 9/11 Encyclopedia. The Atlantic brings us a collection of photos from the week before the attacks - just a general look at what was going on in New York City and the world. Finally, there is the comprehensive 9/11 Anniversary Reader by Foreign Policy.

OK, lots of great photos. Enjoyed those.

But the last picture..just makes you wonder still what they were thinking. :(
