RIP, Frank (d. 2012). A great video from a great mind... his own.

Capitalism isn't perfect ... but compared to the other economic systems devised so far, it's the best system yet. Until some genius comes up with a better idea, capitalism is here to stay.

+Vincent Williams There are many alternative systems to capitalism/socialism/communism, but the current system has no interest to make them known to the broad public, cause it profits well of the current situation and they are already established. You have to inform yourself and maybe you can even become the genius yourself.

He was 86 (or thereabouts) in this clip. He died in 1964 at age 90.

Hoover was an "accidental spy." During the late 1890s and through to the beginning of WW1, Hoover was a mining engineer in various places including Australia, China and Russia. Fast forward to 1949... and the Soviets detonate their first nuclear device. The US is in a panic, the Cold War ignited. The CIA and military needed information on Russia but had little. Just by chance, the CIA learned of a vast collection of notes and maps held by Stanford University, which included information on Kyshtym, an area in Russia that the CIA believed was the source of their plutonium. As it happened, Hoover was a mining engineer in that area decades before, and mapped the region himself. He didn't throw anything away, and later donated all his notes to Stanford, his alma mater. The CIA had what they needed, and Hoover's information was used later when Gary Powers flew his ill-fated U2 surveillance flight into Russia in 1960. It's funny how history works, isn't it?

For the price of one Apache helicopter, the military could buy a shipload of these drones, load them up with roman candles, and wreak havoc on IS. It'd annoy the crap out of them, maybe they'd kill themselves to avoid these things.

I don't care for her (and less for Kanye), but this is clever. There's no better way to shut up the critics than toss out a little tongue-in-cheek self-deprecation. In Australia, we call this "taking the piss out of" oneself.

My college professor and her husband have a Paragon unit, in showroom condition. They almost included it with their house when they sold it... the buyer wasn't interested (gasp!). So they kept it, and only then realised the value in it ($85,000!!). When they played "Phantom of the Opera" on it for me, my bones melted. My jaw is still around here somewhere...

Next step for the Gaye estate: Suing Weird Al for making a parody (Word Crimes) of a song they say was ripped off.

IMO, the beat/tempo is similar, and that's about it. You can't have sole ownership to a tempo. That's just silly.

Ultimately, an additional route needs to be considered between Orange and Riverside Counties. It makes no sense that the ONLY way you can get between Anaheim and Corona is the 91 Freeway between Gypsum Canyon and Green River. Sure, the hills on the south are in the way and too costly to traverse, but there is space on the Chino Hills side. Follow the Santa Ana River on the north side with a new route, where the railway goes, then have it extend along the river through Norco and Riverside to connect with 215/60/10 further out. With fewer on/off ramps, much like an expressway, it could evacuate traffic out and alleviate pressure on the 91 and local roads. Too expensive? If the state can throw down billions for a high-speed train to nowhere, they can build another freeway.

Also... when is the 15 south through Temecula going to be expanded? That is long overdue.
