hermaphrodite bird, budgie

Can't one become the opposite sex by changing their hormones? Don't we all start out as girls in the womb? It's not that simple.  Some notes before you watch the video: Using the word "gender" or "transgender is not valuable in this context. Here is why:  Gender is the social performance of one's biological sex. Gender […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
