I’m Officially Bored By This Election

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I’m not bored of the issues, but it’d be nice to have some candidates talking about the Wall Street bailout or inflation or entitlement reform. I really don’t care about much else at the moment.

It will be difficult to be unaware of the election without being drunk, so look for that eventuality in the future if this shit keeps up.

Beerlao

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Someone needs to do this for Belikin:

That rise began in the 1970s when Corona’s brewer, Group Modelo SA, noticed that lots of empty bottles of the beer weren’t being returned to distributors for redemption. The reason: After partying the weekends away at Mexican beach resorts, American surfers and college students were taking cases of the beer home with them. In response, Modelo started marketing Corona in a low-key, unconventional way, linking it to memories of sunshine and the beach.

Ms. Sivilay says she concluded Beerlao might find a similar niche after she and her colleagues heard that backpackers who had visited Laos were trying to find the beer when they got back home. “It was just after Laos began opening up to tourism and business in the 1990s,” Ms. Sivilay recalls as she strides down the gantries crisscrossing her shiny, modern brewery.

Fannie Maes Political Immunity – WSJ.com

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

We believe in the right of individuals and businesses to lobby Congress. But with Fan and Fred now explicitly guaranteed by taxpayers, letting them ladle cash all over Washington amounts to using government-guaranteed profits to lobby for continued government protection. Congress sets the rules in favor of Fan and Fred, which then repay the Members with cash from their rigged profit stream. This is the government lobbying itself for more government.

Mystery Solved

Monday, July 28th, 2008

The elusive Cuil has finally launched:

A new search engine dubbed Cuil is hoping to offer a rival to the likes of Google, Yahoo and Ask.

Cuil is pronounced ‘cool’ and comes from an old Irish word meaning ‘knowledge’.

The site has indexed 120 billion web pages, which it claims is three times more than any other search engine, and results are organised by ideas rather than just rankings. Cuil also boasts complete user privacy.

Sounds interesting. I couldn’t reach it this morning, but I’ll be sure to check it out.

Visit Cuil.com.
