Saturday Link-Off: Tryptophan Hangover

miesha-tate-fitnessgurls13-02It’s the final day of November and WordPress hasn’t let us turn on the Christmas lights yet. I thought they’d turn on the Christmas decorations for the blog come Thanksgiving but they seemed to miss that. Oh well. I guess that means that we just carry on with the links. Since there was an Ultimate Fighter episode on last night, let’s start with Miesha Tate.

There really isn’t anyone or anywhere the NSA won’t spy. They even conspired with the Canadian government to spy on the 2012 G20 summit in Toronto. We can’t trust any government now, can we? (The Globe & Mail)

Edward Snowden also let us in on the fact that the NSA spies on porn watching to discredit targeted persons. (Huffington Post)

Ever wonder if Black Friday acts as any sort of economic indicator about consumer spending? There’s a chart to answer that. (Washington Post)

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but Bitcoins are sort of a big deal now. So what the hell are they? (The Guardian)

Apparently, being superstitious can make you a more productive person. (Wall Street Journal)

Ever wonder what it’s like to be an NFL beat writer? ESPN lets you in on the action. (ESPN Front Row)

Since this week was Thanksgiving in America, there aren’t a lot of links. We do have a link to a list of fast foods that would be even better at a proper restaurant. (The Big Lead)

And now we really get into the filler links. Here’s a look at the 200 top-scoring posts in Reddit history. (

Could this be another Kimmel prank? A producer with The Bachelor got into a fight with a fellow passenger on a Thanksgiving flight and documented the whole thing on Twitter. (BuzzFeed)

It wouldn’t be a Thanksgiving post without a Black Friday fight.

And it couldn’t be one of my posts without a reference to Rob Ford.
