Link roundup

1.  Coincidentally, the terrific Kelly Denato painting I posted this morning is on sale.

2.  Belarus wants to stop workers from moving to higher paying jobs in Russia:

"A decree is being prepared that says that until the end of the planned modernization and reconstruction of [wood-processing] enterprises [in 2015], workers are forbidden from quitting their jobs," Lukashenka announced during a visit to the Barysaudrev wood-processing plant in Barysau, a bleak industrial city about 40 kilometers northeast of Minsk, on November 30. "Workers cannot quit their jobs without the agreement and permission of the management of the enterprise."

3.  Gawker:

4.  The most overrated things in the world.

5.  The Monsters Inc Cosbabies I featured recently are now available for preorder (you can pick the ones you want).
