Randoms of the day

Devin takes a slap at Half Sigma’s absurd theory of "value transference."

Truth in our Time on Detroit. I could pretty much read about Detroit all day.

Here are some interesting stats on the decline of the city of St. Louis – which has a lower population than it did in 1900. The author, however, is silent as to why everyone left the city.

If you’re at all interested in Christianity and Progressivism or free trade, be sure to check out the comments to my Randoms post from yesterday.

I mentioned a murder in a gentrifying DC neighborhood a few days ago. Here are some suggestions about why the particular location at which the murder occurred is so dangerous. Be sure to read the comments. It doesn’t take long for someone to suggest that not wanting to live by drunken or meth-addicted unruly vagrants is "criminalizing poverty."

"No," is the answer to the question.

Brace yourself. It appears that criminals have low IQs.

    Detroit: does the use of a white typeface on a black background encode a subtle message or is it just a lousy practical choice?

  2. dearieme says:

    “Copenhagen, which is often considered one of Europe’s most vibrant municipalities…”: is this code for something, or an accidental mimicking of code?

    Hi Foseti,
    OK, I’ll bite – why do YOU think St. Louis is declining in population?

    Don’t be shy now…

    And don’t forget to reply to my latest comment on the Black City/White City thread…

      Here’s a hint. Everyone moved outside of the zone in which desegregation required kids to be bussed to schools other than their neighborhood schools.

      • Obsidian says:

        Hi Foseti,
        Nah. I don’t do so well with “hints”. What is so very hard abut you just grabbing your d*ck and speaking up? Tell me what the deal is here, Man. Say it.

        O.

      • Foseti says:

        How much more obvious can I make it?

        People didn’t want to send their children to “integrated” schools so they moved outside the boundaries under which integration was required.

    Because you have a deeply unman;ly, sniveling manner about you, Foseti. If you got a beef w/ Black folks in general you need to just come out and say so. You’ll get mush more respect from everyone when you do. And that’s something your son can benefi from, no matter what number he draws in the genetic lottery.

    • Foseti says:

      Are you serious with that shit? That’s below your standards.

      I don’t have a beef with anyone “in general” and I’m not interested gaining or losing “everyone’s” respect – they respect Justin Bieber, after all. I have a beef with certain things being impossible to discuss without people acting like assholes. I’m still completely at a loss for how any of this impacts my son.

      • Obsidian says:

        F: Are you serious with that shit?

        O: Yes, I am deadly serious with this shit.

        F: That’s below your standards.

        O: Coming from you, that’s an insult.

        F: I don’t have a beef with anyone “in general”

        O: Liar. You DO have a beef with Black peole in general, you’re just too much of a pussy to say so outright. No wonder guys like you hide out on the internet because you simply do not have the balls to say what you truly feel out in the real.

        F: and I’m not interested gaining or losing “everyone’s” respect

        O: That much is clear.

        F: – they respect Justin Bieber, after all.

        O: Non-sequitur.

        F: I have a beef with certain things being impossible to discuss without people acting like assholes.

        O: Well, if you didn’t act like an asshole, people wouldn’t respond to you in kind. And yea, saying nakedly racist stuff qualifies you as an asshole in the minds of many an American in the year 2011. My heart pumps purple piss for you.

        F: I’m still completely at a loss for how any of this impacts my son.

        O: You’re completely at a loss for a whole host of things. May God have mercy on your boy…
