My investment counselor sent me something today “Here’s two economic indicators showing it’s time to buy!” Bogus indicators. Here’s what I wrote back. I’m not convinced.

Alan Grayson: Now let me tell you what they’re talking about. They’re complaining about the fact that Wall Street wrecked the economy three years ago and nobody’s held responsible for that. Not a single person has been indicted or convicted for destroying twenty percent of our national net worth accumulated over the course of two […]
The thing about higher chordates is how we can look similar. Jesus! Potentially toxic extremophile fungus in the dishwasher? Playing with our food. Not finding any food at all. I keep finding reasons to want to go to Chicago. I didn’t much like the article, but I enjoyed the illustration of proto writing. Jesus! That’s […]
Canadian scientists plus international cooperation FOR THE WIN. Hmph. Listening to “The Future’s so Bright I Gotta Wear Shades” on a day like today on the way in…. wrongness, somehowerother. Lovely time re chicken dinner at the ‘Villeans last night and then singing filk and other stuff. I HEART HEART HEART that 12 string of […]
