Our very own Rich Clark wrote a fascinating review of Battlefield 3 that has me rethinking some of my frustrations with war games.

Gus Mastrapa shares a list of things that he ate in Skyrim–the fact that I found this article compelling is either due to Mastrapa being a compelling writer or a sign that Skyrim is truly special–I suspect both are true.

This article from Caryn Rivadeneira of Think Christian has me wanting to hunt down and dust off my Shel Silverstein books.

Can “The Walking Dead” teach us anything about theology?

Colin Dickey on modern day “prophets”: The legend of Nostradamus persists not because we want to understand what’s ahead, but because we want to believe–desperately–that some divinable order lies behind all the chaos.”

The hacker collective known as Anonymous recently threatened the notorious Los Zetas cartel after they allegedly kidnapped one of their members, saying they’d release information about the Zetas and their associates.

Two years ago I don’t think I had heard the term “Keynsian economics,” but now everyone and their aunt’s weasel is an expert on the subject and has an opinion. If I remember correctly, I believe Rick Perry even announced in a recent GOP debate that the current economy has proven Keynsian economics wrong once and for all. But what do actual economists have to say about the theory? Well, it’s complicated.
