How not to diet

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 17 hours ago
Stephan Pastis nails it again! Click the image for a larger view at the "Pearls Before Swine" comic's Web site. Personally, I think getting older is a fundamentally flawed process.

It's not fair, I tell you! Peter

Former Two Term Assassination Insurance Policy for Barack Obama, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. We’ve all had the word burned into our minds almost since the day Donald Trump announced his run for President. “Collusion.” It was the grease for the most egregious example of fake news of our time.

Quantum mechanics and why Elon Musk's IQ is below 130

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 21 hours ago
In Q1 of 2019, Tesla reported a loss of $702 million, far worse than all estimates, and this number is still a euphemism for the financial reality because if we omitted some sales of $200 million worth of carbon indulgences, the loss would be $918 million per quarter (or $1,140 million in cash). And there were apparently other "stretching cosmetic fixes" that have made the situation of Tesla at the end of March look better than the natural picture of the reality. The cash dropped from almost $4 billion at the end of 2018 to $2.2 billion at the end of March – a part of the drop was t... more »

"Why Is There So Much Pain and Suffering?" By Fred Pauser "Mother Teresa said, “Suffering is a gift of God.” Well, it may be true that suffering tends to build character, but it also sometimes builds bitterness and criminals. In any case, we would naturally prefer to do without it, especially the extreme forms of it. We can derive much toward answering the question from a basic knowledge of the evolution of life.
