April 6th, outsourced

Foreign Policy's 8 worst hot mic blunders of all time.

I swear this exact thing happened with me, too. I kept seeing Sam Worthington in everything and thinking he was someone completely new.

Harry Potter travel posters!

When is the best time to buy airline tickets for summer travel? Eight weeks before you want to leave, preferably at 3pm on a Tuesday. But maybe earlier, if fuel prices are on the rise.

My new favorite song. Sorry if this is old news in the US. I just heard it for the first time today, thanks to my friend Crys.

Here's a look at what professors are paid throughout the world.

Finally, I give you one of my favorite blog posts of the year, every year: Bloggity Blog's rundown of the 2011 Rexburg, Idaho baby names.

This cover is also pretty good.

Awesome post! How do you find all this stuff?

Love the Bloggity Blog list of names. I have 2 grandchildren born in Rexburg during those years, but their names are not on the lists, even though the names do seem a bit unusual to my grandma ears. Arora (unusual spelling but the redeeming feature is that it's a palindrome) and Ender (yes, after the Orson Scott Card character). They are dear grandchildren, and I think they will be able to manage these names in their lives.

Those would have made the lists for sure, had their parents opted to put them in the paper ;-)

Thanks for the link (again), Bridget!
