Today’s links-as-substitute-for-actual-content post will delight many and bore just as many.

- Going straight is a fascinating Guardian article about reparative therapy used to “cure” homosexuality and the ex-gay movement in America. It even manages to be fairly balanced, although this lapses somewhat in the last three paragraphs.
- Random surfing of the UCL Law Faculty site recently yielded an online version of the UCL Jurisprudence Review 2002, in which my dissertation was published. It basically involves me analysing Jeremy Bentham’s treatise which denounces the French Declaration of the Rights of Man as a load of shite, and concluding that he rocks. I wouldn’t actually recommend it unless you’re also a jurisprudence nerd.
- Achtung Baby! blog has an mp3 of Nabokov himself reading from Lolita. Excuse me while I scream like the total groupie I am.
- I lied. This last link isn’t intellectual. It’s about boobs.
