A few more links for you today, served piping hot on a bed of rice.
- The AV Club takes stock of the all the crappy swag they received from various networks, studios, and publishers in 2013. Some of it is horrifying.
- Tyler Schnoebelen of the Dictionary.com blog compiles the year’s most common misspellings. Funnily enough, the most common one has to do with the October U.S. government shutdown.
- Meredith Carpenter and Lillian Fritz-Laylin of Slate take a look at some of the snarky comments buried in the Acknowledgments sections of academic papers.
- Finally, Jack O’Brien and David Wong of Cracked attempt to inject some sanity into the gun control debate. Unfortunately, they probably won’t succeed.
That’s all for this entry. More end-of-year content should be appearing on the blog shortly, though some of it may spill into 2014. Ciao for now.
