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.
Why a Transaction Fee Matters to You - a financial transaction fee really does seem like a good idea. Hopefully the bill has some chance of passing?
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
