Re: Values Added: Refuted By Facts (Mark Kleiman & Harold Pollack)

I like how I skipped ahead a few segments and Mark went from normal Mark to the floating head of the demigod Mark (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40517?in=39:51&out=42:56).

Re: Commenter Klatch: Dunkirk, Part Two (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

I donated and I want Bob to eat a low-key, pleasant meal with his friends and family, take that Bob.

Re: Commenter Klatch: Dunkirk, Part Two (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

:) Just a touch of trolling. Don't pay any attention to me, Ocean. :)

(I do that so much that sometimes I legit mess up 'you're welcome.')

Re: Commenter Klatch: Dunkirk, Part Two (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

I'd kind of like to see Bob talk to science types himself. Have them explain it. Might be good.

Re: Commenter Klatch: Dunkirk, Part Two (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

I like it but only out of habit. The question with new fora is always whether or not I can get the osmium username on them, because otherwise it is simply, simply unacceptable.

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

It doesn't actually sound all that bad, but Bob frames it as "bad news."

If this turns out to be a return to the 1 or 2 diavlogs a week era, I suspect we will all still enjoy it like we do now. I...

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Congrats on your new gig, Bob, I'm really happy about it. I've been sitting here watching BhTV for a long time, and I'm a believer in your idea of covering the ideological spectrum. Looking forward...

Re: Science Saturday: What Will Power the Future? (Maggie Koerth-Baker & Christina Agapakis)

Hydrogen would be wonderful as an energy intermediate, as long as it's not meant to be a transportation fuel. Christina, I also spent a good part of the 2000's working on hydrogen...

Re: The Week in Blog: Defense Against the Political Dark Arts (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

I don't know if it would have been disastrous or not, but I do think things should not be too big to fail in the first place. If Goldman is too big to fail, then the CEO of Goldman is, not...

Re: The Week in Blog: Defense Against the Political Dark Arts (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

Mathematically, proof by example is a fallacy, and invalid.

Maybe BhTV should try to scrape together a Science Saturday on that.

Re: The Week in Blog: Defense Against the Political Dark Arts (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

If you go down to the park in New York, mainly what you see is the standard hippie kids and middle aged working class black people. I don't recognize any of them as lower-upper-middle-class. Actual...

Re: Commenter Klatch: Light My Fire (Robert Wright & JimM47)

Something else I have been wondering: John McWhorter's main message seems to be one of personal responsibility. He makes the list as a liberal, but personal responsibility is something some...

Re: Commenter Klatch: Light My Fire (Robert Wright & JimM47)

This was great. Very enlightening about how BhTV works. I would be interested to know if the production effort required for diavlogs has a large standard deviation. i.e. If everything works right,...

Re: Two Cheers For New Jersey! (Mark Schmitt & Kevin D. Williamson)

Okay, so now I'm in the third section (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/39496?in=11:43&out=18:09) and we're arguing about the income of the top 1%. Instead of considering the top 1% of actual...

Re: Two Cheers For New Jersey! (Mark Schmitt & Kevin D. Williamson)

In all fairness to Kevin, who manages to make me angry in every episode, the second section (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/39496?in=04:34&out=11:43) is provocatively mis-titled because that's not...
