TGIF Link Dump

It's Friday, and there are only 5 more classes to the semester. So, we're pumping away here at Unknown University, trying to get all the material on our syllabus covered before the clock runs out.

Today, I have class to teach, students to work with, a paper to edit (and no, it's not done yet), and a research presentation to go to. Luckily, whenever we have a presentation, we take the speaker out to the local watering hole afterwards for what we call "Faculty Professional Development" .

So, here are a few things to keep y'all busy while I try to get through the day:
Robin Hanson is discussing why men and women complain in different amounts. He blogs at Overcoming Bias, which is well worth a look - they've got some extremely smart on their roster. In fact, I think it should be added to the blogroll. And a Hat tip to Bryan Caplan at Econlog for the link.

In another "men and women are different" piece, Dr. Paul Irwing's research indicates that men generally score about 5 points higher on IQ tests. Let the comments begin!

Joe Carter at Evangelical Outpost has posted the latest installment of his Yak Shaving Razor Series. They're full of useful tips and tools. In fact, I just downloaded the undelete tool he mentioned.

Private Equity (at Going Private) is beating the whole "MBOs are unfair" idea like a pinata.

And finally, Richard Kang is commenting on options for replicating hedge fund performance without all the high fees.
That's enough blogging for now -- back to work!
