How promiscuity hurts men

promiscuity hurts men

– Why are marriage rates today lower than they were during the great depression? – Why is it that in the 50's African Americans had a lower divorce rate than whites, and today 73% of black mothers are single?  – Why are so many people of welfare? – Why are so many couples living together for […]

Anarchism Does Not Belong to the Socialists

individualist anarchist

Anarchism does not belong to the socialists. Anarchism is as old as Lao-Tzu & Christ. There a many anarchist schools of thought, my favorite being individualist anarchism. The following is an adaptation from Anselm Bellegarrigue's 1850's Anarchist Manifesto.   The sacrifice of the individual and their property has always been justified as a virtuous act for the preservation […]

Soft Science Sophistry, with Friends

real peer review

John Tierney, the author of “The Real War on Science” has a few words on this: “Scientists try to avoid confirmation bias by exposing their work to peer review by critics with different views, but it’s increasingly difficult for liberals to find such critics. Academics have traditionally leaned left politically, and many fields have essentially […]

Bitcoin: no need to keep talking

segwit, bitcoin debate

I will make this brief and to the point, respecting the spirit of my post's title.  Roger Ver and those associated with BU have a dislike for the core dev team, and segwit. Roger has been very vocal regarding his idea of how Bitcoin should move forward and so has his opposition. This week we happened to […]

Mating Strategies

make and female mating strategies

(In the video I used mice as an example, but voles also give us a good indication about what factors shape our mating strategies…plus it works better with my pun below)  Meadow voles  and prarie voles are 99% genetically identical. The meadow voles are promiscuous while the prarie voles are monogamous. Why the difference? Their environment. Meadow voles live in […]

Raw Milk Is Common Sense: Join Your Farmers in Protest

protest raw milk

I don't drink pasteurized, homogenized milk. I never have, and I never will. It’s not milk, it's white water. Milk is alive, not dead. Milk can grow a baby mammal and keep it healthy. I grew up on a farm in Russia and had warm, raw milk every morning. I refuse to downgrade. Unfortunately, if […]

6 Reasons Why Killing in Video Games is Awesome

violent video games

1. You don't have to get rid of the bodies When you kill someone in a video game, there won't be a physical body bleeding out in front of you because the person you "killed" didn't exist in the first place. You won't need to worry about dismembering a corpse, ruining your clothes, and driving […]

Investment can be beautiful

Art is meant to be seen, so I though I'd share mine with you. These pieces were created by Max Mellenbruch, with contributions from other artists (including myself). What I love about physicals is their unique ability to open up the world of Bitcoin by allowing a person to hold value in their hand (like a gold bar). A […]

It’s not that there’s no jobs, it’s that your standards are too high

people don't want to work

This is for the American youth. I found a job for you! It's at an indoor mushroom farm. Eight hours of walking up and down isles of manure, in humid stink, picking Chanterelles. A place like this only hires immigrants; not because they can be exploited or paid less, but because they're the only ones […]
