Best of the Web

This week on the web, I was inspired by Hannah's post on becoming someone's miracle.  Her writing is amazing, and the quality is just so much higher than what you typically find on blogs or online articles.  She makes you want to frame her posts.
On a lighter note, I cracked up at Gaijin Ass's hilarious post about a particularly foul taxi driver.
Hanley found a way to simultaneously entertain me and enrage me in his post about the wringer that our President is being put through.
The Art of Manliness posted an excellent guide on "The Duties of the Best Man."  I  do not have a situation scheduled where I will need this, but it's the type of post that you want to print out and save for when you need it.
Bryan threw down a gauntlet, raising the stakes in the "The Great Currency Save of 2010." The poor kid is going to go down hard.
Carlos, over at The Cruelest Sport, wrote an entertaining post on the boxers in the world most likely to talk a great game before getting laid out in a sub-par performance.
And then there is Juliana, who makes me glad that I don't have a menstrual cycle, or that I need to hang out with her during hers at  "Instead of Killing someone, Write a Blog Post"
Charles's Zero-Carb site had an excellent post on why exercise isn't enough, and how hormones play a bigger role in fat accumulation than calories in-calories out.

You're right, Hannah writes brilliantly. And as much as we (and i mean me and my fellow countrymen) take the piss out of the 'American dream' ideal, blind faith in meritocracy etc, posts like that show the upside of having that mindset - absolute confidence and assurance that you CAN and WILL do what you set out to.

Damn me and my english cynicism.
