Afternoon Links: January 26, 2011

1. Amazon is introducing a home grocery delivery service.

2. State of the Union addresses throughout history as word clouds.

3. Seattle has become the latest city to adopt market-rate parking.

4. The National Science Foundation requires a mandatory pregnancy test for female employees before they embark for Antarctica. (General policy is to keep pregnant women off the continent, since clinics are ill-equipped to provide them with proper medical care.)

5. Alcoholic milk shakes.
