Enough about me. What's the Internet been up to?
  • The special nature of a Chinese ghost town.
  • The latest moral panic: special music to induce "drug-like effects". There's so much stupid in that article I don't know where to start. Dear Parents: I realize you have to protect your kids. Now grow the hell up and act like rational adults.
  • Birdemic: Shock and Terror
  • Martin Wolf of the Financial Times explains why supply-side economics is bullshit, and why it's politically successful, and why that's a bad thing.
  • The 10 Most Important Things They Didn't Teach You In School. On self-defense: "Oh, there are guys out there capable of kicking ass. They're called criminals. They're good at fighting because they have poor impulse control and anger management, and thus are constantly getting into fights. If you, on the other hand, are going to be civilized and successful parents and homeowners and taxpayers, the odds are overwhelming you will not ever be good at fighting. This fact is thus reflected in our curriculum."
There you have it. I read the Internet, so you don't have to.
