What the hell's going on in Argentina?  The secret service assassinated a head prosecutor?

I'm getting a few different scenarios there, I'm not sure which one I prefer.

I'm leaning towards you being the reason accordians are now considered deadly weapons.

You may have heard, New England is in a blizzard.  I'm working form home, in front of the fire with a mug of coffee.  I could get used to this.

Aaaaand listening to George Osbourne's rebuttal is truly enraging.

He's babbling about how the UK is so great and how Greece needs to bring its public spending under control because that was where the problem was born.

Bring public spending under control.  You mean like this:

Blue line is what was initially proposed for Greek spending in 2010.  Red line is what actually happened, because the EU kept bitching.

As an aside, I realize I rely on Krugman for economic advice almost exclusively, which can be dangerous.  However, it appears that his predictions have been more accurate than most.  I'd be happy to bookmark any other economist's blog, if y'all have one you have confidence in.

As we head for the big Greek face-off, Francesco Saraceno makes a point I’ve also made on a number of occasions: although many of the press reports describe Syriza as “far-left”, it’s actually preaching fairly conventional economics, while the supposedly responsible officials of Brussels and Berlin have been relying on radical doctrines like expansionary austerity and a growth cliff at 90 percent

- A modern transhumanist retelling of Metropolis couched heavily in Janelle Monae albums

I was pretty sure that Janelle Monae albums were a retelling of Metropolis.

Are there skinny people on tumblr who self identify as fat who refer to themselves as "trans fat"?

I've got that feeling I get when I'm reinventing a joke everyone else has already heard.



ETA: Never mind. I found it. It's a thing.


White Russians.

Bowling balls.

I'm sure the rest will come naturally.

We have a thetan wall?

I hate you.

I sleep better at night by pretending these are all just elaborate jokes.
