…. And not just because some of a geek with a mohawk. It turns out that in addition to putting robots on Mars, they’re responsible for a lot of things that are making life better right here on Earth. Just keep clicking for more great tidbits. Welcome to yet another internet rabbit-hole. In closing: brains and [...]
Alright. I’ve been trying real hard to stay away from talking about Paul Ryan. Every newsman, blogger, and their dog have been on about Paul Ryan for the last 36 hours. That being said, I would like to point something out. One of the core things that Mr. Ryan wants to do is replace Medicare with [...]
I suspect that this item from Comic-Con is inspired by this little song: In Closing: oh Tyler; how ethical failures happen; what?; and who would define “exotic“?
Somebody once said that all politics is local. Local meets nationwide today in a city called Sparks. So the Nevada GOP and the National GOP are having a little disagreement. The RNC has threatened not to seat Nevada’s delegates to the national convention if there are “too many Ron Paul supporters.” The Nevada party, on [...]
Thank heaven for Alan Grayson and — still! — Howard Dean. Harry Reid? Not so much. If you don’t read Toothpaste for Dinner, you should!

In closing: glitch, or back door to true universal health care?; digital destruction; good luck with that first line; trickle down; enough war; Science American Style; it’s the jobs, stupid; tied; origins of the Japanese; explains the evening “news“; and 747-8.
I was reading along, minding my own business, when I came across this USAToday item about how Americans have come to expect that they won’t be in any better financial situation next year. Near the bottom is buried this little gem, emphasis mine: A typical recovery pattern goes like this: stock market bottoms, economic growth [...]
I have got to get into the habit of little posts throughout the week. Today’s items are a little mind-blowing. On Taxes and Debt: Two graphs. On Inflation: Core rate is crazy. Explains the Popularity of Certain People: Most people just don’t read books. I wonder if they’ll remember this come fall: Americans want to [...]
International No Diet Day is May 6. I know some of my readers practice “No Diet Day” every day, and I mean them no offense by this post. I recognize that there is a small minority of people — mostly people with a decades long history of dieting and failing and/or people recovering from eating [...]
