During my web surfing, I encounter many interesting sites and pages, and it's silly to put each one in it's own entry. So I have decided to emulate Anil Dash, who has a page full of daily links (with minimal commentary) in addition to his regular weblog. So here are my daily links:
- The War Nerd on a potential territorial dispute between Russia and Ukraine
- An illustrated article on Blockhouses of the Boer War
- More on the Boer War
- I occasionally visit the Gene Expression blog, and I did so today, if only to see what the latest theories circulating among "scientific racists" (other than Steve Sailer, who I read more often) are. I shall blog someday on what got me interested in the potentially distasteful topic of human population genetics - and no, it wasn't a belief in the superiority of any particular race.
- Pedicabs become popular in Las Vegas. Is there hope yet for the rickshaw drivers of Durban?
- Black Hawks down, as the US opts for a quicker handover of power in Iraq. "Saddam" makes a tape.
- Countries with troops in Iraq.
- British cameraman recounts his experience as victim of friendly fire in Northern Iraq.
- South African politicians accuse each other of racism as electioneering begins. (yawn)
- Are the terms “braai” and “barbecue” synonymous? - Not according to this site. It claims that what we call a braai actually involves grilling.
- As someone who is interested in maps, I will probably visit the Maps and Territories blog occasionally [via Crooked Timber].
I'd like to remind readers that my links to particular sites do not necessarily imply that I endorse the views of those sites, or that I agree with the content on those sites.
