Right after a game on the NFL Network, we always get a lot of hits from searches for "NFL Network sucks."

Good to know I'm still right.

Anti-anti-Semitic Thought of the Day

"The Jews did it" is not a valid reason to object to a given practice.

Exhausted Sigh

I hope the Volokh Conspiracy can get all of its linguistic ignorance out in one burst of infuriating posts, so that I can go back to reading it without being angry at Eugene.

Fingers crossed that today is the last day of retardation!

Epic Fail

Steven Pinker destroys Malcolm Gladwell.

Everyone's favorite part seems to be this:
An eclectic essayist is necessarily a dilettante, which is not in itself a bad thing. But Gladwell frequently holds forth about statistics and psychology, and his lack of technical grounding in these subjects can be jarring. He provides misleading definitions of “homology,” “sagittal plane” and “power law” and quotes an expert speaking about an “igon value” (that’s eigenvalue, a basic concept in linear algebra).
Poor Malcolm.

JUSTICE BREYER: So you are going to answer this question yes. You know, I have a great, wonderful, really original method of teaching antitrust law, and it kept 80 percent of the students awake. They learned things --(Laughter.) JUSTICE BREYER: It was fabulous. And I could probably have reduced it to a set of steps and other teachers could have followed it. That you are going to say is patentable, too?

xkcd discovers form.

Perhaps by 3609 he'll be debating nominalism.

Could New Jersey be a real state after all? Can we accept them into the Union? Time will tell, I suppose, but this little gesture is nice to see. Because, man, just like I was contemplating giving California back to Mexico, I was seriously thinking we might want the UK to look into taking New Jersey back into the fold.

Well, try to keep up the non-Communist behavior, NJ!

Wow Tyler Cowen is a coward.
