alienvacuumI got some old Sesame Street shows on video. They come with a disclaimer. Here’s the story on that. (Oscar the Grouch being orange was weird to see.)

Speaking of Sesame Street, is it responsible for the gentrification of Brooklyn?

This is, indeed, some pretty impressive photoshopping work. Beautiful of horrifying at the same time.

Now that’s a state slogan: You can die on Mars, or you can live in South Dakota.

Sometimes being smart can help you be much more impressively unwise.

If you think that alpha males and hypergamy are a problem today, it was way worse 8,000 years ago.

In his argument against raising the minimum wage, Reihan Salam makes a point that I have in the past: The appropriate minimum wage for Massachusetts is probably not the appropriate minimum wage for Mississippi (even if we assume the same value system).

For a nation that consumes so little electricity, North Korea is evidently an ecological disaster.

Some Alabamians are saddled with such court costs that they end up committing crimes to pay for them.

The biggest lab diagnostic company in the country is about to let patients bypass doctors and order tests on their own.

How Superman kicked the KKK’s butt.

New Coke was easily the biggest fiasco in soft drink history. Despite its infamy – or perhaps even because of it – I’m surprised they never tried a re-release. I bet a lot of people would love to get another chance to try it and see if it was as bad as remembered/advertised.

Some teenagers designed a movable village of tiny houses for the homeless.

The coolest one of this list of eight celebrities criticizing Nashville Country is Merle Haggard’s: “Too much boogie boogie wham-bam and not enough substance.”

It’s easier to live with less when you have more.

    Re North Korea… Two criticisms of the piece. First, not a word that NK is in the midst of a severe multi-year drought. Second, dark black soil filled with organic matter is very largely a lowlands and river bottom thing, both of which are in short supply in NK. Until the local drought broke this year, I could have taken you to huge swaths of SE Colorado and western Kansas/Oklahoma that looked as bad or worse than the NK pictures.
