Big Daddy, now 86, "still turns wrenches every day, still tours year-round". And probably needless to say, he still occasionally drives real fast.
In case you want to know.
I don't know about "most," but she is certainly in the running.
Well, maybe. Protein recommendations seem to be all over the map. I've seen recommendations from credentialed people ranging from 55
mg g day--thanks to commenter David for the correction--to about triple that. The most scientific-sounding--Who knows? I certainly don't--source I've looked at argues protein should account for between 15 and 20% of your daily calories.
Made me laugh. McSweeney's, of course.
At this point in my life the big sodium load and the deep frying are dealbreakers. But if I were 30 years younger, I would definitely try these from Southeast Portland's finest.
I couldn't guess, but your mileage may vary.
UPDATE: New link for picture, thanks to commenter Michael.
This summer will be the 30th anniversary of Die Hard. When I first saw it and a couple of times since then, I thought it was just a really fine way to spend two hours. Cleverly written and well acted.
I remember when I first got cable and a premium channel there would be a movie almost as good every week. Boy, was I wrong.
A lot on the frontiers of physics, from the very big to the very small seems "weird".
Instead, Yost and others suggest that maybe we’re just wildly overestimating the amount of climate change that Toba might have caused. Although the eruption was much larger that the 1815 eruption of Tambora, also in Indonesia, the amount of sulfur found in the volcanic deposits from Toba suggest that maybe it didn’t really emit much more sulfur than that Tambora eruption.
What can be measured can be gamed.
"I've started to mine cryptocurrency, and it's surprisingly easy — but I'm still 8 months away from breaking even"
As usual, there's rarely an "easy" way to riches.
Over at Economics Job Market Rumors, an intriguing bit of gossip:
that said, not sure what the story is for economists there except for one small tidbit. a faculty member at my (HRM) school had dinner with bezos a couple years ago, and he said something to the effect of "yea we have a bunch of economists, but they mostly tell us that we can/should increase prices. so we end up ignoring them most of the time."
2+ year-old piece by Robert VerBruggen. In view of last week's tragic event, still quite relevant and amply useful.
There is actually no simple correlation between states’ homicide rates and their gun-ownership rates or gun laws. This has been shown numerous times, by different people, using different data sets.
We thought teachers' unions hated charters. If "consider" because actual, we won't have seen anything yet.
I used to collect stories to tell my young students of average people who saved and invested their money wisely and so were able to leave behind multimillion dollar estates. This one probably tops all the ones I had.
That's value as in low PE stocks. The answer is that tech has had a good run recently.
Remember how horrified liberals were when President Trump’s vulgar remark about not wanting people from “shithole” countries as immigrants was reported? Sure you do. And do you remember how aggrieved a lot of the liberal Twittersphere was when I said on this blog that people don’t want housing for the poor in their neighborhood, and that they aren’t wrong for that?
Oh c'mon, Mr. Dreher: it's less than two blocks from the Plaza. Only one block from Carnegie Hall! How dare anyone bring poor people into that neighborhood!!

"The federal government can’t account for $21 trillion—but does anybody care?"
I do, I do! One can hope this is some sort of technical problem, some problem of failing to dot the i's and cross the t's on some tedious government paperwork. But even if the estimate is an order of magnitude too high, it's still kinda of big deal. Shouldn't there be a bipartisan effort to investigate this tout suite? I mean--recalling the late Sen. Dirksen--a trillion here, a trillion there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money.
"Most 'super agers' drink, smoke, gain weight and never retire - but their zest for life leaves them resistant to dementia"
This would seem to indicate that our understanding of aging and the development of dementia is still very weak.
Forget all that. Just move the crisis a few more months or years into the future.
That would be the famous Voynich manuscript. They think it's written in encoded Hebrew.
"‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ On Netflix: Jerry Seinfeld’s Complete Case Of Comedians As 'Other'"
An argument that comedians are really, truly different.
A fine list. I enthusiastically endorse, for both original watching and later rewatching, Goodfellas, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Social Network, The Shawshank Redemption, A Few Good Men, Groundhog Day, Mean Girls, Road House, and most especially, Pulp Fiction and Grosse Pointe Blank.
(The only movie on the list that I've seen and find overrated is The Big Lebowski.)
