I'm a fan of link dumps (reading and creating) because you can share a bunch of diverse links in a simple post. I utilize link dumps on my other sites, specifically the Tao of Fear (Monday Morning Red Pill) and Tao of Poker (which I re-branded "The Nugs" like the "Monday Morning Nugs" or "Hump Day Nugs"). But I realized that I rarely do that here. Maybe we should change that, eh?
So, here are a bunch of random links that I shared with friends, or friends of mine passed along to me this week. Welcome to the first installment of McNugs...

Nicky wrote something about American Idol. Don't know what the hell she's talking about, but if you like AI, then check out... American Idol: Good, Bad and WTF? (Pot Committed)
