Future? I think of the line from the Man of All Seasons and I wonder, “It profit a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world. . . but for Trump!”

I dunno, if they were the world's 6th largest military thanks to Russian arms I don't think Leonard v. Pepsico would have turned out the way it did. (At the very least they could have offer...

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

I'm curious what scaling for a 3 person household means. That would seem to make older generations appear poorer because the households were bigger, but at the same time, raising kids was cheaper back in the day.

I mean it's not that surprising considering the members of Deee-lite. You had Bootsy Collins and Jungle D.J. Towa Towa, so there's some deep music knowledge in the group.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Going through my company's insurance open enrollment today reminded me of just how weird the situation is. You're ostensibly given all these choices, but all they boil down to is "I want this particular policy" or "I don't want anything". Because, of course, you are not the customer, your employer ...

At the same time, they also point to a different fact that cuts against the “indirect payments are evil”. Without an indirect payment system, state or private, the population that can afford it is so small (of an already small population) that there’s no chance you could ever sell it profitably in a...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

If the Pareto principle is scale invariant, that would imply that 4% of people use 64% of resources, which is more extreme than what you're citing. (Obviously it can't be completely scale invariant. That would imply there was one person using like six percent of all health care spending. But in a l...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

The glaring statistic is half of US health spending is incurred by 5% of the population. That is stunning to me every time I encounter it. I always knew it was a top heavy distribution, but that's absurd. And it's international, not a feature of our system per se. The form of the system determines ...

Guernica is the "important" work of art that I've seen that, if anything, is underrated seeing in person. The sheer scale of it is something that you only take in in person.
