Flying Without a Wallet
I think that this is really interesting, there either needs to be good, effective security, or none, not a pseudo-security that protects no one.
Midnight Train to Georgia
This is one of the more interesting things I have read on the Russia-Georgia conflict. Without being definitive on who started it he asks the question “Do we really want to get involved in a hot war with Russia? Really?”
Praying for Health
This is really interesting idea, just because I’m a Christian doesn’t mean I can’t believe in this. I would also be interested to see the linguistic version as well. And does the spread of major religions make a difference? Is that why we get offshoots of major religions? Interesting.
The Man Who Was Thursday
I just discovered Wikisource yesterday, already I am in love.
I would love to see this implemented. Whenever I see peak traffic I think that all these people are driving from the city to the suburbs, why can’t we co-ordinate? Especially when you drive a particular route at the same time every day and see the same cars.
Democrats and Abortion
It would be nice if they could actually put into practise some of what they are talking about. (as if)
Via Marginal Revolution, some good tips for going on holidays, I think I would endorse them all. The ‘start packing in advance’ was especially helpful to me when I moved to the US. Weeks in advance I had boxes in my room labelled ‘Australia’, ‘US’ and ‘op-shop’ and I would just throw things into one or another whenever I felt like it and as the op-shop boxes filled I could make (my boyfriend make) trips to dump them or take the ‘australia’ boxes to my parents or grandparents house which de-cluttered my house, making it much easier to pack everything else.
The Story of Stuff
I didn’t think I have linked this before, and it is great. It is about how the manufacturing and distribution system works.
The title says it all. Does anyone live in Denmark and can pick one up for me? I may start riding a bike. 🙂
