Uhh...but the price of a tank doesn't have anything to do with how fast you use the tank of gas. And it also doesn't have anything to do with the most substantive arguments against that tax cut, i.e. that in exchange for that extra tank and a bag of groceries Scrooge McDuck over there got an extra ...

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Watched The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. Great cast- Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott, Kirk Douglas. Miklos Rosza did the music. Felt a little slow at times but a great ending payoff. Also watched Beat the Devil. Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Robert Morley, Gina Lollobrigida. I felt it ...

I have always thought of pheasant as such an integral part of rural america that I find it shocking that it isn't actually native- didn't really catch on here until late 1800s-early 1900s. I don't really care for chicken salad, but this actually sounds good to me, like maybe the stronger flavor of p...

I don't have enough info really. What I like about this is the setting of the value of the patent is constrained by a willingness to pay the tax for high exclusionary rights. Someone willing to pay the price has full access rights including the right/duty of re-sale. In a compulsory license regime,...

Are bloody noses really a thing during pregnancy? I've had two sever bloody noses in the last week that came out of nowhere.
Obviously they're going to be bloody. But two?
And I love the implication that there is someone hiding in the shadows pelting people with severed noses.

Re: Radical Markets

"Perpetually open auction" is an awkward and incoherent phrase. Crafting such a deliberately misleading descriptor makes me suspicious of the whole scheme right from the get-go. The concept reminds me a little of biblical "Jubilee", only on a shorter time frame. Which I've seen seriously argued as ...

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

Is it me or is that a really weird font choice for the title at the very end (and in the preview pic)?

Also, it's amusing how non-romantic the portions designed to sell "romance" are.
