Counter the Stupidity Gradient

May 28th, 2014 by John Mansfield

my ivory towerFor a couple years I had an office at UCLA in a building called Engineering IV, a much nicer building than the utilitarian name might imply. My office and those of most I dealt with were on the fourth floor, but many mornings I would first ride the elevator up to the fifth floor to look out a large floor-to-ceiling window toward the southwest. Now and then the haze was light enough that I could see the ocean. There were no classrooms or lecture halls in this building, only offices and lab space, but it was a public building on a public university campus, so the hallways were open to the public, and we were told not to kick any strange people out, just call campus security if there was a problem.

Suicides by hanging, strangulation, and suffocation

May 11th, 2014 by Vader

Correlate extremely closely with U.S. government spending on space, science, and technology.

It’s almost the same in the Galactic Empire. Deaths by strangulation correlate closely with spending on Star Destroyers and Death Stars.

Irony

April 30th, 2014 by Vader

Food safety experts sicked by food poisoning at meeting.

Perhaps this is just a new way to motivate them.

Anti-gun Senator Trafficking Arms with Organized Crime

April 02nd, 2014 by Zen

We all know there is corruption in government, but rarely do we see it so blunt. California state senator Leland Yee (Dem), outspoken gun opponent, has been caught in arms trafficking with organized crime. And while on one hand, it is surprising this kind of Gadianton Robber would get his hands dirty, dealing with these sorts, it is nice to see Yee is a hands-on kind of guy.

And if you want to exactly what kind of pea-shooters we are talking about, Popular Science has a nice little scoop on that.

Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media has not been very anxious to cover this.

The gamesters of Metropolis

March 28th, 2014 by Vader

Gaming a rent control system that might possibly have made sense when it was instituted, at the height of the Second World War. Over seventy years ago.

Nowadays, it’s hard to see how this isn’t an uncompensated takings by the City of New York.
