Too bad his munitions manufacturer is not as akbar as allah.

Applied Physics

Jim Bailey did not know impulse theory. His harness was only rated for twice his weight. Even though no turn generated more than 2 G, impulse reared its head and took Jim. Shitty way to learn about physics.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - Broken Window Fallacy

Not that this monkey is a shining beacon of wisdom, but it amazes me that nobody has asked His Royal Hind-Ass to furnish numbers showing how America "started the war to save our economy."

I would go into it myself, but I would just be plagiarizing Bastiat, Ce qu'on voit et ce qu'on ne voit pas.

The parable describes a shopkeeper whose window is broken by his young son, and who has to pay for a glazier fixing his window. It conveys some thoughts on economy and money circulation. Bastiat's original parable of the broken window went like this:

Have you ever witnessed the anger of the good shopkeeper, James Goodfellow, when his careless son happened to break a pane of glass? If you have been present at such a scene, you will most assuredly bear witness to the fact that every one of the spectators, were there even thirty of them, by common consent apparently, offered the unfortunate owner this invariable consolation—"It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Everybody must live, and what would become of the glaziers if panes of glass were never broken?"

Now, this form of condolence contains an entire theory, which it will be well to show up in this simple case, seeing that it is precisely the same as that which, unhappily, regulates the greater part of our economical institutions.

Suppose it cost six francs to repair the damage, and you say that the accident brings six francs to the glazier's trade—that it encourages that trade to the amount of six francs—I grant it; I have not a word to say against it; you reason justly. The glazier comes, performs his task, receives his six francs, rubs his hands, and, in his heart, blesses the careless child. All this is that which is seen.

But if, on the other hand, you come to the conclusion, as is too often the case, that it is a good thing to break windows, that it causes money to circulate, and that the encouragement of industry in general will be the result of it, you will oblige me to call out, "Stop there! Your theory is confined to that which is seen; it takes no account of that which is not seen."

It is not seen that as our shopkeeper has spent six francs upon one thing, he cannot spend them upon another. It is not seen that if he had not had a window to replace, he would, perhaps, have replaced his old shoes, or added another book to his library. In short, he would have employed his six francs in some way, which this accident has prevented.[1][2]

The fallacy of the onlookers' argument is that they considered only the benefits of purchasing a new window, but they ignored the cost to the shopkeeper. As the shopkeeper was forced to spend his money on a new window, he could not spend it on something else; this is called an opportunity cost. For example, the shopkeeper might have preferred to spend the money on bread and shoes for himself (thus enriching the baker and cobbler), but now cannot because he must fix his window.

Thus, the child did not bring any net benefit to the town. Instead, he made the town poorer by at least the value of one window, if not more. His actions benefited the glazier, but at the expense not only of the shopkeeper, but the baker or the cobbler as well. Moreover, the benefit to the glazier is relatively small, because most of what he charges is to compensate him for his tedious and strenuous labour, as well as the materials he uses.

When The Right Hand Doesn't Know What the Left Hand...

If you have multiple personality disorder and you pay yourself to masturbate, is it prostitution?

Brussels Sprouts & Interracial Attraction

For as long as I can remember, I have had the overwhelming urge to eat Brussels sprouts. I know, for reasons unexplainable, that they contain something my body needs.

I have noticed (anecdotal observation) that the more mixed someone is (genotypically) the less likely they are to have fetish-strength preferences for certain racial types.

Is it possible that in groups that have had limited variety in genotype, there is a functional subconscious program that kicks in and attracts us to a gene-pool that is markedly different from our own?

Underwear: The Valentine's Day of Apparel?

We all know that Valentine's Day is a joint conspiracy between Hallmark and the Bilderburg Group to sell cards and create a global currency, but what about underwear?

Is it possible that something that we assume is so fundamentally essential is actually totally worthless? I think so.

The first argument I usually encounter when I broach the subject is the hygiene argument. This may have been a valid argument when there may have been weeks of gold prospecting between laundering of one's Levi's (although, at that point, how clean could your undies really be?). Also, in an age where we wash out kitchen towels between hand-dryings, how much difference can a thin layer of poorly constructed cotton make?

So Simple, a Liberal Could Understand It

Ken Schooland is a fat daddy liberty pimp, and when he is not teaching about liberty abroad he is making awesome videos explaining liberty.

If there were anything left in my 40, I would pour it out to Ken... Cheers.

Where's The Media

Just days ago I openly announced my plans to download a copy of the Koran and delete it on 9/11. There are no reporters calling to interview me, and the President has not gone on TV to try to talk me out of it. Does nobody care?

Ground Zero Mosque vs. The Flaming Mo(hammed)

Tolerate the mosque, but not an insult to Islam. Gotta love that one-way tolerance.

Burning The Wrong Document

On whatever day that everybody decides to burn/not-burn/unburn the Koran, I am going to burn a copy of a document much more dangerous to our present way of life.

Please join me in torching a copy of "Obamacare."

On Idolatry

People have their collective panties in a collective wad about some guy that is going to burns some Korans on September 11th.

I have always thought it is funny that people get upset about the burning of "Holy" books. First of all, I could not care less if you burn the books that I hold sacred. Go ahead and burn 'The Road to Serfdom.' The sacred part of the book is not contained in the ink or paper, but the idea which, luckily, is not flammable.

In fact, I hope that people go out and buy Hayek's book and then burn it. It will put money in the pockets of publishers that support liberty. It is for this reason, and this reason alone that I do not support the burning of Korans.

And remember, both The Bible and Koran have a little something to say about worshiping false idols. Isn't that what you are doing when you place the emphasis on the book rather than the message?

Just to be dick, I am going to download a free version of the Koran and then delete it. Take that.

Hippie Farts

We all now that the hippie diet with all the tempeh and tabouleh can lead to excess flatulence.

Should they be taxed for their methane emissions?

A Serious Question

Why do you think people don't mind the smell of their own farts, but cannot stand the smell of others' farts?

Quote of The Day

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. "
-Hunter S. Thompson

Social and Fiscal Conservatism

Many conservatives have an acute and overwhelming sense that the government should stay out of their pocketbooks (a sense that I share). Through some feat of mental gymnastics they are able to do the opposite when it comes to social issues, and still call it conservatism.

You either believe that government is the answer to what ails us, or you believe government is what ails us (oversimplified, but... ).

If you believe government cannot be trusted with our money, what makes you think that they can be trusted to decide those substances we should be able to put into our body (nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, etc.) and those we cannot (all the other ones)?

Open Letter to Bad Drivers

When you are taking a left, you needn't precede it with a slight right. When you are drifting, this is called a feint and it is a valuable tool for breaking your rear end loose... when you are taking a left at 8 miles an hour, you are just driving poorly.

Can You Think of Anything Else Like This

Suicide is legal.
Assisted suicide is not.

Is there anything else that is legal, that if someone helps you do it, it becomes illegal?

Grab Your Camera

Prostitution is only legal if you film it and call it porn. How dumb is that?
