Happy Adventure Links

Here are some links of a happier variety.

First, the whole idea of jobs and careers spent making stuff might be obsolete. We've got enough stuff. (h/t Squatch)

Second, some adventures:
A friend LB is finishing her bike ride to the tip of Chile, and another friend Boomer is in Antarctica. Also, some dudes rode fat bikes around Alaska, which seems like an inefficient way to travel (h/t MRB), and a Japanese dude is riding around the world and paying for it with magic tricks. (h/t Billy)

Lastly, Roger Ebert does not fear death. (Plus, he's an awesome atheist liberal.) The money quote in the article comes from Brendan Behan, an Irish poet:
I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.
