Lazy Linking, 67th in an Occasional Series

 
What I liked lately on the Internets:

67.1.  Imagine a world in which there is no football.  (100 years from now, will people similarly struggle to imagine our world, in which there was football?)

67.2.  200,000 tons of deadly nuclear waste needs to be stored somewhere.  New Mexico says, "YIMBY (Yes in My Backyard)!"

67.3.  We're a long way from peak oil after all.  But just because fossil fuels aren't scarce doesn't mean they're not costly.  The solution, of course, is a carbon tax, which I assume will be implemented once politicians no longer have jellyfish for spines.

67.4.  The exact moment capitalism was born in China.

67.5.  The problem with the birth-control mandate is not moral but rather economic.
