Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang… brianvan: Since I’m already out of patience, let’s impose a strict daily kWh usage limit on each American citizen, usable in any/all applications and counting (the manufacturing of) products you purchase, commuting energy used, home energy used, etc. - but if you exceed it on any day you are lined up at midnight with all the other energy-wasters and...

The Slave Next Door: Child Maid Trafficking...
somethingsnarky: Read here This story, aside from exposing an unbelievable affront to humanity, is an acute example of globalization’s challenges. It paints a stark picture of how an individual life is valued outside of the West. There is no arguing that indentured servitude, by children no less, is a violation of human rights. Yet, it remains ingrained in the culture of the...

My neighbor below me is playing opera… or something like that. I’m quite intoxicated, and it’s a little creepy.
Most Expensive Num-nums in the Universe →
The price of an entree at leading New York restaurants is projected to fall below $40. According to the trade association Most Expensive Num-nums in the Universe (MENU), the economic situation will leave Alain Ducasse, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and other difficult-to-spell foreign gastro-entrepreneurs with “no choice but to lower the price of entrees to as low as $35.” MENU warns darkly that this...

In Madoff Scandal, Jews Feel an Acute Betrayal →
“The Talmud teaches that a person who only looks out for himself and his own interests will eventually be brought to poverty,” Rabbi Krause added. “Unfortunately, this is the metadrama of what’s happening in our country right now. When you have too many people who are only looking out for themselves and they forget the other piece, which is to look out for others, we’re brought to poverty.” (via...
Bowing at the Altar of Luger →
NYT gets a tour of/is in awe of Peter Luger’s aging room: “…the fatty pink short loins resting on the clean steel racks like the promise of abundance give the impression of a gluttony so bountiful and imminent that one can feel its reverberations coming through the floor.” [NYT] (via eater)

I Ruined Christmas
brianvan: johncarney: By writing this. (note: he believes it, too. That’s the crazy thing. He’s probably offended that story ends the way it does. He’ll defend pre-Spirit Scrooge over drinks for a couple of hours without blinking or catching a breath. I only need 5 seconds to counterpoint: “2008 is not the year to argue that the world needs investment banking.”) John - this is absolutelly...
GateHouse Media targets Boston.com →
soupsoup: megwhyte: Yup. We’re suing the New York Times. They don’t want people linking to their website, and they’re suing them for doing so. Hey guys, how about you learn how the Internet works? I guess you’re not interested in generating traffic. Maybe they’re just interested in generating some serious media attention. This suit will put GateHouse on the map, if anything. And...
