Yo, Bezos! You're losing money!  »  Fiat Blog!
Jeff:When a book shopper on Amazon sees a book with a rating of one or two stars, they move on. Isn't this statistically true? The rating system was developed to help shoppers sort through millions of books. As a result, shoppers ignore books with low ratings. It saves them time. Consider the case where a noteworthy reviewer, Booklist for example, gives a book a favorable review and a customer gives a rating of one star to the same book. Does the shopper see the number of stars Booklist gave the book? Of course not; that review is just a block ...

CELEBRITY FRIDAY: Vester Lee Flanagan, a Black Gay Man, Was The Live TV Shooter  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
On Wednesday August 26th Vester Lee Flanagan, 41, shot to death on-air reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward while they were conducting an interview on live television. Flanagan, who previously worked for the same television station (WDBJ in Roanoake, VA) as Bryce Williams, was apparently openly gay and was let go by the station more than a year ago because of his irascible personality. He sued his former employer for racial and sex discrimination seeking damages of $25,000 but the suit was thrown out for lack of evidence.Flanagan sent ABC News a 23-page ...

Random Writing Thingy  »  A Life in the Day
My writing has slacked off quite a bit, if this blog is any indication. Ideas still float around my head constantly, but I'm questioning whether or not to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be). Part of it is laziness (and my addiction to the Playstation), but part of it is also wondering if what I write is what folks want to read. That's my biggest hurdle. I believe the idea is amazing, but then I start thinking—which is a very dangerous action—about what the response will be, and I slowly talk myself out ...

Naked Pub Crawl  »  Ron's Log
The Black Rock City Naked Pub Crawl has its own web page for 2015! There you will see nakedness, crawling, pubs and horseplay. One should be aware that not all pub crawl participants are as lean, young, muscular or white as depicted on that site. Oddly, there are no photos of bicycles, which is how 99% of us crawl. They call the Comfort & Joy stop the "after party" because they've never figured out how to get the crawlers to leave, so they just keep pouring alcohol into them until they pass out. ...

Pumpkin Spice Latte M&Ms Get Free Advertising On Snopes  »  Ron's Log
Snopes' verdict is that they do exist, they do. More proof. And a review: I pop one into my mouth, chew, and then immediately shovel a whole handful into my gaping maw. Regardless of your religion’s stance on the existence of the Great Pumpkin, you’d better believe that these suckers are real -— real tasty, that is.If you’re expecting the strong, earthy, bitterness of espresso, you’ll be disappointed. Instead, the coffee taste of the chocolate here is a sweet, lightly nutty java experience with faint caramel notes. Accompanied by a tinge of cocoa and a ...
