“This Time I Will Destroy My Arch-Nemesis… Once and For All!!!”

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced that he is making a movie to try to “destroy” the National Rifle Association.

Yeah, good luck with that. Betcha it causes more ammo sales than ticket sales.

[Title reference: there’s no link for this, it’s just my own observation than whenever a bad guy uses the phrase “once and for all” in a movie or TV show, his plan is completely doomed to fail. Just watch for it – you’ll see]

50 State Stereotypes (According to Google)

From HuffPo

Thanks to the Twitter account @Amazing_Maps, we now have an idea of how the Internet stereotypes all 50 U.S. states. When a search phrase like “Why is Illinois so…” is typed into Google, the search engine autocompletes the sentence with the word that people most commonly write in the search bar next. In this way, Google autocomplete may reveal the deeply held assumptions the public holds about a state.

Actually, if I’m not mistaken about Google’s algorithm, search results become increasingly tailored to the user over time, so this may say at least as much about the user as it does about the search engine.

For example, I got “Why is Wisconsin so cold” as my #1 result. “Liberal” was second.

Anyway, for the record, since I literally wrote the book on state stereotypes, I can state authoritatively that most of this map’s stereotypes are wrong, and most Google users ask stupid questions.

Obama Warned Us – Bipartisanship

Bipartisanship — not for its own sake but to solve problems — that’s what our constituents, the American people, need from us right now. All of us then have a choice to make. We have to choose whether we’re going to be politicians first or partners for progress; whether we’re going to put success at the polls ahead of the lasting success we can achieve together for America.
