Links: Flying torches the planet, Birdman, books, crazy creative people, fertility, and more

* “Every Time You Fly, You Trash The Planet — And There’s No Easy Fix,” an underappreciated point; I know many people who see SUVs as environmentally evil and travel as virtuous, when their love of the latter more than offsets their hatred of the former.

* Oliver Peters on Birdman, which is an unusual and very good movie.

* Mark Zuckerberg discovers books.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA* English PhDs can’t get jobs, which would-be English PhDs ought to know.

* The messy minds of creative people.

* “How California Bested Texas“—except in terms that arguably matter most, population growth.

* “Why do women know so little about their own fertility?” And that this issue gets mixed up in politics is itself depressing. The facts, people! Start with them.

* This Guy Took a Photo Every Time He Saw Someone Reading a Book on the Subway.
