Links Roundup for 9/23/2011
More links! Though mostly more serious this time.
1) Adam Savage demonstrates the effects of non-air gases on his voice. Hilarious!
2) Why US poverty statistics aren't very useful.
3) For the "Why I'm not excited to be moving to California" files: the city of San Juan Capistrano is fining a group of people for holding “a regular gathering of more than three people.” What is this gathering? A bible study. Not exactly public nuisance material.
4(a) An interesting response to those who argue that because government protects property rights, it has unlimited claim on one's property. My Dog Owns My House?
4(b) A more detailed (and analytical) response.
5) Speed limits aren't always about safety.
6) Somebody's building the Babbage analytical engine. So cool...
