Ugh. Graphs. Count me out. ;-)
Thai, your time is running out on Yoyo's brain teaser over there in the jungle.
I try to avoid all things middle east with him. How about you get him riled up to share the answer. ;-)
He's going to give it to me anyway.You guys being snarky with Yoyo irritates me.He is a true intellectual.What did YOU do to get him all riled up in the first place, Thai ?It seems to date from even before my arrival in the jungle...
Hey Thai.Do you know who the AUTHOR is of that quote that is your title ? ;-)
Re: YoI am not really sure other than his life centers around the Arab-Israeli conflict and I tend to look at that issue as two cousins arguing with each other over what to serve for dinner.
re: author of that quoteIndeed I do.Indeed, when you think on this...I see everything as energy (universalism) and yet I am an atheist who does tend to sympathize with religious viewpoints.Yet you reject the idea that it science's most fundamental observation: the conservation of energy, is invariant. Yet you are religious.... Even you have to admit that the paradoxes inherent in the whole thing are worth at least a little smile. ;-)
Such grim graphs. Well, such grim truths the graphs illustrate...But all those linear thinkers out there so smitten with "ceteris paribus" I think will be quoting T.S. Elliot if their Tea Party ever came to pass:"That is not what I meant at all. That is not it, at all." Ah, Republicans. Dumb and mean. But I'm frustrated with Dems too. What to do, what to do? This tennis ball has FAR too many sides.
You're telling me that I'm rejecting "science"'s most fundamental postulat ?I'm not sure I am... I am an... AGNOSTIC on this point, Thai. ;-)
And in the mean time, if you want to see what would have happened to our economy, check out this.Latvia seems to be the poster child for what an collapsing economy look like when it decides to remain on a fixed exchange rate and thereby preventing Keynesian spending programs, etc...Having said this, I think taking your lumps all at once also has its advantages.I think maybe everyone that can should consider visit Latvia this summer out of a mixture of empathy and greed.Alas my boat arrives soon and when the weather gets warm, I think I will play with it here instead.
Latvia, eh? Do they actually have a summer? Iceland is kind of intriguing with its geothermal energy and potential for voters to soon tell all their debtors "sayonara". High literacy rates and internet access too...
I have never really been so I can't say but at least from these pictures- and please forgive me Deb, this is a guy thing we can't help ourselves on- Latvia does look rather warm and friendly in the summer. ;-)
And Deb, do I get a choice on how much protection I want/need and whether I get to suffer the consequences? Or is it a "one size fits all and no is not an option" kind of protection?As I am sure you are aware, this is America's health care debate in a nutshell. ;-)Be well my dear
Some of us understand that Freedom is an end in itself
Latvia- Hybrid of Amsterdam and Thailand!Oh...no offense to your namesake ;)
Ironic that you talk about freedom to me in a country where signs about the lions in the cage being better off than in the wild can be seen...Beware of capital letters, my friend.Who's being irrational now ?
Why should I be offended at all those pretty blonds ?I like a pretty face too.What is it about guys and blonds in western culture ?Does it go back to Marilyn ?
