links from India! Annotated State of the Union, naps, virtues, kangaroos

It’s my last day in India – had a great time, and boy am I not looking forward to another long day of travel. But, until then:

The Annotated 2013 State of the Union – may want to grab a cup of tea before reading; it’s a bit long, but it’s a very good read!

Relax! You’ll Be More Productive – or Hey, Naps Are Good for You!

Ten Virtues for the Modern Age – billed as part of “A Manifesto For Atheists”, but I don’t see any reason these shouldn’t apply to non-atheists as well.

xkcd: Workflow – aaaaa it’s so true! I’m putting this up at my desk when I get back.

There Was A Kangaroo Delay At The Australian Open – the picture really is worth 1000 words. (thanks Jessica!)

The Law and Order Database: All 20 Seasons – an interesting look at guilty/not-guilty rates over the seasons. Also: data!

Declassified: America’s Secret Flying Saucer – it worked great until it got more than four feet off the ground. It does look cool, though!

Finally, a Valentine’s Day appropriate article from the Onion: Romantic-Comedy Behavior Gets Real-Life Man Arrested
