You like to aggravate the ice cream man on rainy afternoons:
— I think Texas secession would be win-win.
— The case for rejiggering the Nobel Prizes.
— The case that all prizes are dumb.
— Alongside the dumb stuff about climate change, Superfreakonomics is apparently full of dumb stuff that has nothing to do with climate change.
— NBA to start officially allowing two steps.
— Reporting deficit figures in terms of nominal dollars is really dumb.
