The caption on
this says it all. An interesting
article on efforts to conserve water in Las Vegas. One day, computers may make it completely unnecessary for me to
speak. If one comes out that bring up relevant Simpsons quotes, I’m doomed. Now playgrounds are being
ruined by safety hysteria and the unaccountable CPSC.
It just goes to show you — if it exists, some political asshole will want to
It seems to me that
this should be bigger news. Law schools are openly lying about their graduate employment numbers.
This is ridiculous. Priceless jazz recordings will never be played because of rights concerns. I don’t entirely agree that 3-D is a
scam. But I mostly agree with it. The latest baseless child-related freakout:
that liberal media! Right. A very thoughtful piece on
jury nullification. Bolivia goes the
stone age route on rights for nature. This is a perfect example of the terrible effects of good intentions. The primary result here will be to further empower the already oppressive Bolivian government.
Great news that our fish stocks are
recovering. Some interesting
pushback on the idea that parenting doesn’t matter. Orac has
fun with the latest blast of toxin hysteria. Some
follow-up on the principles of the Duke Lacrosse case.
Two of the most arrogant men in Congress push a “privacy bill” that
exempts government. I would much rather have Amazon collating information about me than the FBI. The latest
shut up and do what we say from TSA. Usual statement: what this guy did was stupid, but it doesn’t warrant the
severity of the reaction.
Lots of non-political links today!
PJ has the
last word on the tiger mom thing. A wonderful
photo essay of history’s biggest cities. Personally, I’m hoping the next picture in the chain is Mare Tranquilitatis City. The latest on the
to breed or not to breed question. Told you those sociologists were bullshit. For some reason,
this photo essay makes me feel almost patriotic. Americans are almost proud to be ridiculous. #51 is my favorite.
The latest from the
food grabbers. In the end, they’ll realize that gay marriage is a
conservative thing. I keep asking this: what is the point of Democrats if they’re just going to
out-police-state Republicans? All right. I give up. When Mann fucking Coulter is the
voice of reason, we are REALLY in trouble.
