How about another metal post?

Turns out Korpiklaani makes some pretty great lifting music:

As well as some pretty good post-lifting music:

A minimal rebuttal

Frances Woolley needs ten points (twelve, if you count her citations as arguments from authority) to argue that bicycles are cooler than cars.  I only need two to rebut:

  1. Cars are powered by explosions.  More to the point, most cars are powered by exploding prehistoric flora.  (Okay, technically it’s deflagrating, but shut up.)
  2. Steve fucking McQueen.

(Note that the motivated reader can combine my rebuttal with some of Woolley’s arguments to claim, rather persuasively, that motorcycles are cooler than both bicycles and cars.  This should come as a surprise to precisely no-one.)

Car porn: Audi R18 + Monza = Eargasm

If this isn’t the coolest thing you’ve seen and heard all year, you’re wrong:

If…

If you need a few minutes of musical determination, willpower, sisu, or sheer bloody-mindedness, you could do worse than Hatebreed:

Kipling would approve.

In which I stay cool

Got a bunch of traffic on the previous post because Robin Hanson fucking linked it.

I feel rather like Dennis.

There will ever be more Norman Borlaugs

What’s that I hear?  Is it scientists humiliating the sad crisis-mongering neo-Malthusians?  Must be a weekday, then.

Good show!

Plexiglass won’t save you this time

Do you want to watch people blow shit up with chlorine trifluoride?  Yes you do.

When your name is a verb

Via Tyler Cowen we discover this post on efficient charitability from Scott Alexander:

It’s worth reading in full, if only to get the context for this line:

Then Robin Hanson of Overcoming Bias got up and just started Robin Hansonning at everybody.

Which leads, inexorably, to this:

I have never seen a group of distinguished Berkeley faculty gain so sudden and intuitive an appreciation for the Athenians who decided to put Socrates to death. I spent the whole speech grinning like an idiot and probably scared Robin a little. And okay, some of that was because I woke up really early to get to the airport today and had become dangerously overtired and mentally imbalanced, but the rest of it was just that he sounds exactly like he does on his blog, he’s a great speaker, and it was just really funny in a train-wreck sort of way to watch a whole room of innocent and basically decent people get Hansonned.

Just, wow.
