The mouseover says: “I’m looking at you, Anathem”
Boy am I looking forward to reading that brick of a book. It’s sitting on the shelf watching me, to pounce on any bit of unguarded spare time.

Tous leurs trémolos
There is a followup discussion @ the Bremer Sprachblog, which googlesearches for Gender differences. The results look pretty interesting but they aren’t really, as they could mean anything, depending on the premises. As the Bremer Sprachblog has not, apparently, invested time and effort into transforming the results into something truly interesting, and my own pitiful self does not have the time to do it, I will not post the graphs, since they will, at best, be misleading. Can’t really say why I mentioned them at all. Well. What’s done is done. (via)
