He thought he snagged a villa for $9,100. He got a foot-wide strip of land.

quote [ A Tamarac man thought he was getting a great deal on a Tamarac villa whose owner hadn't paid taxes. But all he ended up with was a one-foot-wide strip of property running under the villa. It cost him $9,100 and there's little he can do with it. ]

What happens here it stays at the villa

INTERVIEW: Natalie Wynn of ContraPoints

quote [ I always go back to their use of the word ?cuck,? which I thought was just sort of breathtaking in it?s directness. Like, oh, this is about sexual insecurity and the feeling of humiliation. Like, they may as well have just said that, and it?s almost sort of touchingly candid, I thought. ]

Middle-Aged Moralists

quote [ Why should we turn outward? Not in order to avoid becoming scoundrels, Wallace says, but because such other-directedness can bring us freedom. ]

The Most Shocking Statistic About Poverty in America Was Probably Wrong All Along

quote [ "The debate has gone on for years in the pages of academic journals and white papers, with Edin and Shaefer countering detractors and refining their findings along the way. This week, though, a group of rival researchers released the most serious challenge to their work yet. Their paper uses newly available data to essentially double check and correct the government survey results Edin and Shaefer relied on. And, after all of their adjustments, $2-a-day poverty nearly disappears." ]

Seemed relevant to recent posts. This doesn't mean poverty isn't a problem, or that there isn't a gap between qualifying for welfare and no longer needing welfare that keeps people on welfare. It just means our understanding of our system has been incomplete.

The Dark Forest Theory of the Internet

quote [ Not sharing was my choice, of course, and I didn?t question it. My alienation from the mainstream was their loss, not mine. But did this choice also deprive me of some greater reward? ]
