Anything but water

  • The Economist has some pretty good suggestions for cutting back the State.

  • Gyms are not interested in getting you in shape. Here's how to do it [get in shape].

  • Is nuclear power safe? Yes. Can Nuclear Power Be Part of the Solution? Maybe.

  • The lottery in Holland is a very big deal -- mostly in the money that they spend marketing. The BankGiroLoterij sends everyone fake cash cards. Some people go to the website to register the card, where they are then asked to play the lottery. All of this is possible because they are making such profits from the lottery that they can spend 0.99€ on marketing to make 1€. The lottery in NL is worse than Publishers Clearing House in the US, but they have such style!

  • Inevitable: "They're perfect. In fact, they're someone you could see yourself spending the rest of your life with. A decent person with a good job or business in search of a good, honest partner to settle down with... Welcome to Romance Scam!"

  • Africa's mobile phone development success continues to produce (good) surprises.
