12 Percent

By | November 30, 2018

Only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy, study finds. I can believe it. Have you walked outside and looked around? If I were transported from the 1980s, I’d be agog and aghast at all the just enormous people everywhere. It’s gone from fairly uncommon to just normal in less than a human lifetime.… Read More »

The Algorithm is Always Right

By | November 30, 2018

Google’s attempt to “correct” your searches almost never works. So why do they do it? Didn’t they test it? Aren’t these supposed to be the smartest people in the world? (Chuckles.) The answer is that Google doesn’t care if the algorithm works well. In fact, it’s better if it does not (for them). The reason… Read More »

Deception: The Adult Default

By | November 30, 2018

Why do people feel the need to lie to their kids so much? That’s what most struck me about this piece. My parents lied to me all the time — I always caught them and it made me extremely angry every time. Luke and Lucy crawled into my lap. Henry looked afraid. Theo asked what… Read More »

Overeat

By | November 29, 2018

I’ve found it’s extremely hard for me to overeat now that I’ve been eating at calorie restriction and calorie maintenance for a long time. It’ll really help me build muscle if I do eat a bit too much, which is my goal, but even trying to eat two pieces of pizza for lunch instead of… Read More »

Differences

By | November 29, 2018

You have to understand the crucial difference between the Trump and Obama adminstrations. Obama officials felt really bad while providing missiles and refuelling and watching Yemeni civilians starve to death as a consequence of the same policies. — Cyber Coolie (@thedigitalserf) November 29, 2018 I’ve long said that the main difference between Democrats and Republicans… Read More »

Precision

By | November 28, 2018

Any Neil deGrasse Tyson type who thinks that philosophers aren’t astoundingly precise in their language hasn’t read much philosophy. Many philosophers’ utterances make equations look sloppy and ill-defined.

Pondering and Wondering

By | November 28, 2018

Still thinking about the “open borders” beliefs of much of the Left. While it is true that at one time there were no documents required for international travel — no passports, visas, etc. — we do not live in that world any longer. What proof is that older world of anything? We also used to… Read More »
