'Most Haunted Place in the World' Up for Auction
Thu Apr 17, 2014
This would make an AMAZING tourist trap. You could make millions off this property if you managed it correctly. People shell out the big bucks for "haunted" vacations. I'm also interested in the castle and monastery mentioned at the end of the article. I've always wanted a castle, and something abou …
Shortage of Farmers Creates 'Dangerous Situation' for U.S.
Tue Apr 15, 2014
This is what they call a "self correcting problem." Farms go out of business, fewer people want to start new ones, heirs abandon the family farm. Eventually, food prices go up. Starting a farm starts to look more and more profitable, as the price of food increases. People start to dream about starti …
Feds Give In and Release Cattle Seized in Nevada Standoff
Sun Apr 13, 2014
The rancher is refusing to pay the fee for grazing his cattle on public lands. That's illegal. This fee was imposed not by Obama, mind you. Nor was it imposed by Congress. It was imposed by none other than RONALD REAGAN himself, under Executive Order 12548, which he signed in 1986. Reagan would neve …

E.T. Can't Phone Home Yet: Landfill Search for Atari Game Halted
Thu Mar 20, 2014
In reply to: WhatAJoke71 #17 Are you really this ignorant or are you just pretending? New Mexico is the 47th state of the United States. It was made a state in 1912 -- that's over 100 years ago. New Mexico is where we created and tested the atomic bomb. This isn't exactly a recent development.
Sex Industry Study: Internet Is Driving Prostitution Off Streets
Wed Mar 12, 2014
Prostitution will end when men become unwilling to pay for sex. Which is pretty much never. The prostitutes are just meeting demand. Prosecuting them just lowers supply, which increases prices, which encourages more women to do it every now and then make a quick buck. It's fairly unskilled work, an …
Babylonian tale of round ark draws ire from some Christian circles
Fri Jan 31, 2014
Most myths have a basis in fact. It seems reasonable to me that, thousands of years ago, some herdsman loaded his animals into some sort of vessel to escape a flood. He would, of course, want to make sure he had at the very least a breeding pair of all of his different types of animals. That's all …
Dismal Wii U sales prompt pay cuts for Nintendo execs
Wed Jan 29, 2014
I think Nintendo would do better as a game maker than a hardware maker, in the current market. They could make tons of sales if they were willing to release their games on other systems instead of depending on their own proprietary hardware and gimmicky controllers. People LOVE the Nintendo franchis …
College textbook costs more outrageous than ever
Tue Jan 28, 2014
Back when I was in college, I took a class called "Foundations of Mathematics." It was pretty much the 100-level "easy" math class for English majors. The required text for this class was $150 -- "Principals of Mathematics, 12th edition" or something. Now, I can kind of see the argument that when a …
Beef at a crossroads as prices rise, supply dwindles
Thu Jan 16, 2014
I honestly don't remember the last time I purchased beef -- and I'm the one who does all the shopping for our house. It's just not the sort of meat I tend to eat.
