For someone who claims to be an engineer, your grasp of simple geophysics is astoundingly weak.

Turn those HFT machines back on!

Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track, is a compilation of Feynman's letters over many decades, and reveals not only a genius-but a merry prankster.

My freshman year during the 1mo January session, there was a course on the rotational dynamics of knife-throwing, which I think would have been far more useful.

Yeah, but wouldn't playing knife-golf be a little riskier than the frisbee variant?

We left LAX on xmas eve and arrived in Auckland on Boxing Day 11 years ago, and the hotel we were staying in had the Sri Lankan cricket team in town to play the Kiwis, and the next morning my wife was in the lobby talking to one of them about the tsunami, and at first it didn't seem like the giant tragedy it would become, but just kept building-the bad news.

I think the team left back for home a day later...

I heard the righty-tighty-gawdalmighties are clamoring to get this Monday's holiday changed to Delivery Day.

Wouldn't one need to have savings in order to kvetch about not earning any interest on the wherewithal?

The best place for a Californian equity refugee is right here, find yourself a hidden away oasis away from the maddened crowd, and best of all, nobody's gonna hate on you.

Aside from a Californian having telltale license plates, what else gives us away?

Read that Josh Duggar was involved in yet another extra marital affair, and it's ok as long as he's 'trying' to pump out babies, right?

It isn't about the money, in fact my sister wanted the amount spent to be $300, and we compromised @ $100 after I told her that I hardly remember anybody ever spending 3 bills on an individual in the past, but old habits die hard when you've become cogs in the consumeratti machine.

If you're a restaurant, novovirus food poisoning is the last thing you want to be known for...

In the hotel-motel business, bedbugs would be equivalently bad~

We told our family a decade ago that we were done with the potlatchy extravaganza of giving gifts @ xmas-with the exception of kids, and my sisters reaction was as if I plunged a shiv into Santa Claus, so distraught were they...

Flash forward to now, and I just got an e-mail from one of them desiring that we do a gift exchange instead this holiday, with everybody buying just one present for another family member, with names pulled out of a hat to see who you are buying something for, and vice versa~

A complete decimation, going from 10 gifts, down to 1.

Notice how Fearless Leader placed so much emphasis on revised numbers from months ago, and not much on today's number, funny that!

Dudley do nothing, while Fischer casts a line.

A most elegant takedown, very Feynmanesque!

Check out the contents of a Syrian refugee's bug out bag, there's a few examples here of the meager amount of things they take with them, for a 5 day voyage on the high seas.

I like the Church of Discounted Sins....

Nobody watches TRUMPSCAR, except to see the inevitable crash.

I thought CR banned Misch from the right hand column links?

This is deserving of a reprise...

Dave Patraeus, Dave Patraeus
Dave Patreaus, Dave Patraeus
Dave Patraeus, Dave Patraeus...

Ooo bonk me Dave Patraeus
Bonk me Dave Patraeus...
Bonk bonk bonk bonk me Dave Patraeus
Bonk me all the time to the top

He was into Intelligence
And he lived in the big city
It was near Vienna, in Langley
Where he did everything
He had Humordor by the balls, in the CIA halls
But a couple women loved him
And each one shouted:
Come on and bonk me Dave Patraeus

Patraeus, Patraeus, Patraeus
Patraeus, Patraeus, Patraeus
Patraeus, Patraeus, oh oh oh bonk me Dave Patraeus

He was Superstar
He was popular
He was so exalted
And then his peter got excited
He was a reverse cuckold
As his wife was looking old
And he shouted:
Come on and bonk me, i'm Dave Patraeus

There he goes again, making a spectacles out of himself.

Hillary has so much baggage, a bellboy could get rich off of her.

She's just as divisive as STFUD, but in a whole different vein.

You'd be talking about folks that immigrate to New Zealand, pretty much.

They don't want slackers and have a point system that one must reach in order to qualify, along with around a thousand miles of open ocean in any direction from the country as a great dissuasion if you're planning to come by The first rule of kayaking is to not use it as your signature.

I'm not all that preoccupied with getting my first SS check, now @ 3117 days, 15 hours, 23 minutes and 8 seconds away.

Are we talking about Glad ziplock bags in an assortment of sizes?

I hear he's in fate-based healing @ some brothel.

That millionaire with a cardboard sign looking to buy a home in Vancouver only need head south to Vancouver, Wa., where she could pick up 5 for that price.
