When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

-Lao Tzu

Good evening, dear reader. Hope you are happy and healthy. The end of 2011 is nigh, and I, for one, am looking forward to a new year, a fresh start, a blank slate. For now, though, let’s see what’s on the agenda:

The East Village has rolled out the welcome wagon to their shiny new Starbucks!

Duverger’s law makes politics bo-ring. Maybe this is why people are leaving America in record numbers.

They caught giant walking dreadlock in Quebec. After some shaving and cleaning, they discovered it was actually a dog!

Forbes has a list of the happiest (and saddest) countries in the world.

Awesome infographic: A History of Western Typefaces.

Check out this faggot:

A woman who works with people at the end of their life wrote a blog post on the top 5 most common regrets of the dying.

A professional writer describes his experience being arrested for peacefully sitting in a park.

And finally: almost all women aggress against a sexy peer. Who knew?

That sums up this bloggeriffic blogginess (Blagojevich?). Until next time, stay snazzy!
