To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

The 7 Most Sought After Good Habits
I'm an avid student of behavioral psychology, and I really enjoy observing trends of large groups of people. A few days ago, I noticed something curious about one of my new favorite iPhone apps, Lift, which focuses on habit formation. There's a section in the app which lists all of the most selected habits that users have added. What's interesting is that due to the app's intentions (sticking to good habits), you essentially get an inside look at what habits matter to the most people. More »
Transparency 2013: Good and bad news about banking, guns, freedom and all that
== Bank Secrecy 'ending' at last? =="Bank secrecy is essentially eroding before our eyes," says a recent NPR article. "I think the combination of the fear factor that has kicked in for not only Americans with money offshore, countries that don't want to be on the wrong side of this issue and the legislative weight of FATCA means that within three to five years it will be exceptionally difficult for any American to hide money in any financial institution."In one sense, this would appear to be vindication of my forecast, in EARTH, that banking secrecy would become a major

Chet Raymo, “A Wildly Seething Power”
“A Wildly Seething Power”by Chet Raymo "I read Kierkegaard's “Fear and Trembling” at about the same age as Kierkegaard was when he wrote it- thirty. The young philosopher was wrestling with his demons, including the death of his father, a sternly religious man who demanded absolute obedience from his son. He had jilted the woman he loved, a self-inflicted wound that perhaps not even he unders

Instead of Being Dumped, Ideas And Things Of Value Should Be Treated With Regard
Above are some Christmas Trees I saw in Houston a few days ago. Surely it is so that our feelings about Christmas and about holiday traditions merit more than just tossing these trees out into the dump. These trees could have been composted. Ideas and things that have value to us should be treated with respect. This is true of Christmas Trees and of so many things.
