Re: Crushing the Puppy Edition (Hanna Rosin & Ann Althouse)

That really was an astonishing sequence at around minute 16 (sorry, life is too short to go back and dingalink it). Althouse makes a, shall we say, counterintuitive assertion, provides no evidence...

Re: The Week in Blog: Conn's Endless Dirt

I'll third the assessment. Although to be fair, Conn never was on board the McCain bandwagon, and so never engaged in the kind of epic hackery that Michael Goldfarb did. As a result, from about the...

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

Now that the diavlog format is firmly established and the site has reached a kind of critical mass, maybe it's time to have the occasional audio-only diavlog for anonymous or nominally anonymous...

Re: Attn bh.tv techies

OK, I've watched it now--holy crap! It never occurred to me that "The pro-assassination Obama voter" was in reference to the actual topic under discussion. I can't believe Chait went there. Oh well,...

Attn bh.tv techies

Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but the title for this diavlog that appears in my RSS reader is breathtakingly ill-conceived. I'm assuming someone changed it at the last second (good...

I don't know if anybody's participating in this thread anymore, but I'm behind on my diavlogs, and am just getting around now to watching to this one (Friday morning in the US), which apparently was...

Re: No Drama Edition

LoL. Now that is an incredible feat of memory (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/262?in=00:00:00&out=00:00:26).

Re: Grand New Party

As a big-D Democrat, I agree with Reihan: he should be kept as far away from the levers (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/12168?in=00:05:33&out=00:05:47) of the Republican party as possible (that's a...

Re: One way to understand the solution to the Monty Hall problem.

That's very close to the way it was explained to me that made the correct solution "click" in my head. Another way of saying it is that by allowing you to switch from door one, Monty is in effect...

Re: Science Saturday: Singularity Edition

We're up to around 13 diavlogs per week, including a Science Saturday that is consistently worth watching twice. My record of listening to every diavlog since the beginning is in serious danger of...

Re: The Passion of the Blog

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.31

Hmm. Further away from Brendan than I expected (although still in the Mandela-Dalai Lama zone; yeah, that sounds...

Re: How Candy Dropped From the Sky Changed World History

Well, for one, the Gettysburg Address was famously a flop initially (disclaimer: as much as I liked Obama's speech on race, and as much as I think it genuinely marks a turning point, I am NOT making...

Re: How Candy Dropped From the Sky Changed World History

Yes, you do have to give David Frum credit for being willing to play "away games" (I'm not thinking of bhTV so much as, say, Bill Maher's show). Also for assiduously not attempting to use volume,...

Re: Immigration and morality

Which WASPs are you referring to, the Irish? The Italians? The Jews?

As for Atlantic Monthly links, two can play at that game (http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200604u/immigration-flashback). Note...

Re: Amanda isn't up to this website.

Well, in fairness to Amanda, I thought it was a decent enough diavlog up until the Social Security discussion (although she went badly off the rails from that point on). In fact, earlier in the...

Re: Evolutionary Psychology

It's interesting how much of this diavlog dovetails with the Will Wilkerson-Dan Ariely one a few weeks ago. I haven't read Predictably Irrational yet (bhTV investors take note: that diavlog led to at...

Re: Monty Hall problem?

Well, she says herself in the article that the "Monty Hall" problem has been accounted for, and doesn't think that the critique applies to current research, so you can't really fault her for not...

Re: Stupidity Not Limited to Primates

Fantastic diavlog.


I just got done listening a second time, and I can confirm that it was worth it.

OK, before I take you to task, EW, I just want to say that I think your comments are...

Re: Top Ten Reasons This Diavlog Was Published

Brendan,

I didn't think it was possible, but your post just single-handedly redeemed both this diavlog and this weapons-grade-stupid pie-fight in the forum. Well played.

Re: I wish it had been "Financial Instrument ABCs"

Agreed (on both the cynicism and the respect). It would be next to impossible for the press not to be enamored of Obama for any number of reasons; McCain has had to work much harder for for the...
