Penn Jillette talks about the magic of politics:

Is our entire political system built on this unwilling suspension of disbelief? We don’t really have a choice, so it’s sure unwilling. We know somewhere in our hearts that our political saviors are not really magic, but we so want them to be. We could bust every one of them if we just broke the rules for a moment. It’s all hanging by a very hard-to-see little thread.

A wonderful story about Richard Feynman and his dogged determination to seek rational explanations: “Here he is, describing a moment of enormous significance, and he won’t allow a Signifier.”

This looks like a solid intro guide to “travel hacking.”

Evangelical Christians armed with a bullhorn and a video camera invade Vanderbilt’s fraternity row on game day.

A nice write-up of our Houston Bols Genever launch event at Anvil in Culture Map.


  1. Appreciation to my father who told me on the topic of this web site,
    this blog is in fact remarkable.

  2. I pay a quick visit daily a few web pages and information sites to read posts,
    but this web site provides quality based writing.

  3. I believe what you posted made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you added a little content?

    I am not saying your content isn’t solid, but suppose you added something to maybe grab people’s attention?
    I mean Links 9/15/11 is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write news titles to get people to
    open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
