Randoms of the day

You should probably stop buying Kindle books if you use an device from Apple to read them. I love my iPad, but this is one of many reasons why you need a Kindle for books.

Steve Sailer sticks up for Amy Chua. I wrote something not critical of her a while back as well. At this point, everyone seems so happy to dislike her that I figure she has got to be on to something good. (The article is quite funny).

A DC urban-planning-style website wonders why black people don’t ride the bikes in the new bike sharing program (perhaps the ultimate SWPL form of transportation). Unintentional hilarity ensues.

Another DC site opines on how to solve problems associated with random homeless people wondering the streets. Their solutions are retarded.

Isegoria notes that self-control as a child is a solid predictor of wealth as an adult.

Germany continues to quietly take over the rest of Europe.

Marginal Revolution has a cool graph on income inequality. Note that if poor American children lack the resources to be properly educated, then no one in India could be properly educated.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    Do you want to elaborate on this?

    “In general, African-Americans, which make up the large majority of the residents east of the river, are averse to colder temperatures.”

    So the only sentence that honours the notion of free speech gets deleted: the euphemisms and evasions survive.

    I am coming to realise that the American notion of free speech refers solely to the Constitution, not to social habit. That, I have decided, is why when I have worked with Americans in the UK and Australia they have been visibly astonished to encounter the habit of free speech. Still, on the principle that we copy all American bad habits, I can be confident that those free-speaking customs will die out.

    Get this program and buy whatever ebooks you like. I switch back and forth between Kindle and iPad all the time.
