I've tried it and it's kinda cool.
Hard to believe but yes, this is how we used to roll in the mid 70s.
This is much better: "David Bowie--Heroes (Live in Berlin 2002)"
"It's probably the most recognisable sound in popular music." Really?? (Well, the report is on ABC.net.au and you can never doubt the mass media.)
But the puzzle it posed is now apparently solved.
Alternate hypothesis: today's music is so generally poor, this "old folks" music sounds good in comparison.
(And get off my lawn!)
UPDATE: link fixed now.
With great good humor, Bill Burr takes apart an understandable exaggeration.
A six-mile-wide (!) asteroid landing is one thing. But bad luck where it lands is worse.
Not hugely lucrative, but may be worth thinking about for kids tired of paying high rents.
Is it at the bottom of Lake Baikal?
“That’s why we want the legend to live on. It’s part of our landscape now, part of Baikal, part of Siberia. It’s just too beautiful to die.”
Bob Lutz, noted Car Guy:
The vehicles, however, will no longer be driven by humans because in 15 to 20 years — at the latest — human-driven vehicles will be legislated off the highways.
He might be right, but I'm not convinced yet.
Good question. George Leef:
Bok’s view, in short, is like that of former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm who declared that higher education “is like jet fuel for the economy.” Pour in the fuel and the economy roars. The trouble is that this view is mistaken.
At no point does Bok mention that the nation already has large numbers of college graduates who are working in jobs that any reasonably smart high school student could learn. Nor does he see that due to the “positional” nature of educational credentials, the more we push “attainment,” the higher the degree level people need to set themselves apart—the credential inflation problem I have often written about. Finally, Bok barely acknowledges that many successful Americans acquired the knowledge they need without completing college, and in many cases never going at all.
The senior authors of the report are among the crème de la crème of the economics profession.
Repeal the Certificate of Public Need requirements in states that still have them.
Another veggie I probably should eat more of.
I second Joel Kotkin. Federalism, baby, federalism.
I don't know about all 12 but it seems hard to argue with this one:
- “We’re just a shoebox. These people who’ve come in the past few years and built these Taj Mahals and stuff—they’re not around anymore. If you could line up the restaurants we’ve seen come and go, that’s a long list.” “We serve the basic foods, and the basic foods never change.” Joe Rogers Sr. “Good food that is fast and affordable.” Tom Forkner.
Remember: ethanol is just a name for the one of the things we do together.
They sound better to me than more ineffective, freedom-abridging gun control.
Made me laugh.
If it proceeds as it almost inevitably has to, this will be one of the biggest political fights of my lifetime. This should unite all wings of the Republican Party. To borrow a phrase: Just Say No.
"The Fusion GPS dossier was one of the dirtiest political tricks in U.S. history."
I do hope that this is fully exposed and discussed. But I'm pessimistic.
Pretty good list, especially for a sociologist. (It's a good thing for her that she has tenure at Occidental, because almost surely some of the students will feel microaggressed upon.
This should probably be added: "Professor draws rage for telling students to work hard and avoid partying"
"Keynesian economics changed all this by constructing an intellectual justification for viewing the federal budget as a tool for managing the economy rather than a constraint under which politicians operate. Keynesianism argued that in recessions budget deficits could stimulate aggregate demand and lead to recovery, while in good times surpluses would both prevent excessive growth and pay back the debt.
"This idea, known as “functional finance,” looks good on the blackboard but has a fatal flaw."
This is a heckuva first paragraph, Kevin Williamson.
The Republican tax plan may be kind of dumb, but if it were three times as dumb as it is, it would only be half as dumb as the Washington Post’s analysis of it.
The rest of the piece is just as good.
These food scares rarely are. And there's good advice here: you probably want to consider absolute risk, not relative risk.
It's going to Florida and the Southeast.
I'm unexcited, but your mileage may vary.
Interesting discussion of one element that made Blade Runner so good.
