links n’ such

My Board Game Geek app for WebOS is now available in the Palm App Catalog!

What If Everybody in Canada Flushed At Once? – or, Canadians really like hockey.

A map of the most common fast food restaurants across the US, made by calculating the “burger force” (proportional to one over distance squared). McDonalds obviously reigns supreme, but Sonic makes a pretty good run in Texas!

LOST: Baywatch intro

The subscriber rates cable companies pay to carry each channel. ESPN and Fox Sports Net are by far the most expensive, and even the FOX Soccer Channel (which apparently exists) costs more than Comedy Central.

Florida (like many places) offers tax credits if you film a movie or TV show there. Now they’re considering a bill that would deny these credits if the show has a gay character. (among other things)

As a Michigan fan, I’m not sure how to take the fact that Jim Tressel (the Ohio State football coach) answered questions from a local gay publication. (and said some very nice things) He’s probably the first major coach to do so.

An interview with David Boies and Ted Olson about their Prop 8 case. Nothing earthshaking, but it’s interesting to hear them talk about the trial and what they think their chances are. They’re expecting a ruling by late April/early May.

  1. Wait, you’re a Michigan fan? How’d that happen? And I really need to get back into boardgames. The only ones people here play are Settlers (and the gazillion variants) and Bohnanza. Which are fine games, but I want to get back into the meatier stuff. My copy of Puerto Rico hasn’t been played in years, and I’ve never even had a chance to play Caylus or Agricola or the other big new games.
