Thought for the day.

On TV, radio, and elsewhere, I often here it said that “free markets” would be better at providing what society needs than regulated ones.

Markets are complex systems that are affected by a multitude of factors in much the same way as weather systems.

The belief that markets should not be regulated is like saying that farmers shouldn’t install irrigation systems because the climate will provide rain.

there’s a experimental project in Stockholm, Sweden where you can sign up to recieve a SMS if there is a cardiac arrest nearby (500 m), so you can get there before the ambulance and perform CPR. 9500 people have signed up, and they reach the location faster in 54% of the cases.

This is a great example of how the human race can use communications technology to help one another instead of just scamming each other with spam.

A sort of “what if” version of Calvin and Hobbes by Gritty Reboots. 

It’s not perfect, but I like it.

That’ll never become commonplace. It’s just too cool for itself.

I used to live each day as if it was my last, 

but people got tired of me screaming, “I’m going to die!  I’m going to die!”

A neighbor stopped by to say hello this morning. Turtles live in the nearby creek. We don’t usually see them in our yard though.

Beautiful sky this morning. This camera doesn’t do it justice.

I have come to believe that…

coincidences are things that happen to other people.

I don’t hear anyone saying the working class is “too big to fail”.
