Re: Science Saturday: Multi-Level Selection Theory (Razib Khan & David Sloan Wilson)

Choosing the sure 1 million over a 50% chance of 2.1 million seems like it might actually be rational due to the diminishing returns of having more and more money.

Re: Utopia and Its Discontents

I don't know, his last diavlog makes this one look positively somber in comparison.

Re: The Prodigal Nation

Franco a chauvinist? Naw, I'm sure he believes all cultures are equal. Equally inferior to the French that is. ;)

Re: The Prodigal Nation

Really? I found it a bit too sentimental for my taste. I know it was just an example, but the idea that helping specific Afghanis in any way resolves us of any moral obligation to Afghanistan as a...

Re: The Prodigal Nation

This diavlog was a bit of a disappointment. 68 minutes and 51 seconds have passed and all I feel I've gotten has been a rather conventional wisdom take on the "realist" view of foreign policy....

Re: The Prodigal Nation

Why do I feel like every comment you make is just an excuse for you to have another go at Americans?

Re: The Week in Blog: Bill and Conn the Magic Diavloggers

I agree that taxing the sale of fossil fuels to represent their carbon emissions seems like it would be easy.
However, Conn might be talking about taxing the production or use of these fuels which...

Re: The Week in Blog: Bill and Conn the Magic Diavloggers

Ideally I would have Israel and the U.N. help pay for the assimilation of the Palestinians into Jordan and Egypt. It's probably just a pipe dream and I know it's been tried before, but I think it's...

Re: The Week in Blog: Bill and Conn the Magic Diavloggers

I, for one, don't see why people want the so called "two state solution." Why not give control of Gaza back to the Egyptians and the west bank back to the Jordanians. Along the pre 1967 borders of...

Re: Free Will: The Circus Act

He's using the term brown as analogous to "mixed." He want's Obama to speak to hispanics as people who have a mixed Spanish and Native American ancestry, just as he has a mixed Kenyan and Kansan...

Re: Free Will: The Circus Act

I don't think he wants to label anyone as "brown", but is simply using it to "break down this white/black dialectic in America" as he puts it.

Re: Why no female versions of Bill Gates?

It's not necessarily the sample group. Studies have shown a far greater variance in I.Q. test scores among men than women which would help explain why there isn't a female version of Bill Gates. ...

Re: The Week in Blog: Falwell Manque

Why would we move to a utility model or a wholly state run system when the countries you mentioned aren't doing so?

Re: The Week in Blog: Falwell Manque

Yes, but service providers have monopoly over only one type of broadband technology. If Qwest is the only DSL service provider in your region, you can still choose cable, satellite, cellular, or...

Re: The Week in Blog: Falwell Manque

Not to mention anti-trust laws are meant to act as deterrents. In-fact, without further information one would be just as justified as to view the lack of anti-trust suits as evidence for a lack of...
