Links of the Morning

Being in Europe, I've become accustomed to waking up in the morning to drunk tweets from my friends on the East Coast of the United States.  Typically, I don't get drunk tweets on a Wednesday morning, but the ongoing Association of the US Army (AUSA) convention seems to be cause for such revelry.

Spencer Ackerman has been covering the event, giving us a sneak peek at robotic exoskeletons, combat-ready iPad apps, and the Army's new LUH-72A Lakota.  Spencer, if you're reading this, you need to link up with Diana Wueger, because I think that an exoskeleton wearing a panda hat might make for an awesome story.  So say we all.

In other news, reflector belt madness has even hit prostitutes in Spain, and Russia stands by to lend a hand in Afghanistan.  Again.  What is this world coming to?  Meanwhile, Lauren Jenkins alerts us to the Lord's Resistance Army, while her commenters alert everyone to the fact that Taylor Swift is quite the hussy.

All in all, an exciting morning.
