How The World Really Works - The Documentary -- Zero Hedge - Renegade Economist's "Four Horsemen" documentary lifts the lid on how the world really works. "Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear." Free from mainstream media propaganda -- the film doesn't bash bankers, criticize politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions. Since it is becoming abundantly clear that we will never return to 'business as usual', 23 international thinkers, government advisers and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.

Why Every Free Man's Arsenal Should Also Include a Good Shovel -- Sovereign Man - ...this act of planting a garden might be one of the most subversive things you can do because, to paraphrase the ‘father of permaculture’ Bill Mollison, when you arrange your own food, energy, and shelter, the people in power lose economic and political control over you.

Where and When Did Humans Evolve? -- The Advanced Apes - Humans are a species that permanently inhabit every continent on the planet.  But of course, like all other species, we’ve evolved.  So where and when did this take place?  Figuring out important temporal and spatial questions related to our own evolution has been one of the central missions for evolutionary anthropology over the past 100-150 years.  In order to gain satisfactory answers we had to learn a lot about our closest relatives, our fossilized ancestors, and our own genomes.

Afghanistan Opium Trade Growing Despite $7 Billion US Drug War -- Cannabis Culture - Despite a U.S. investment of nearly $7 billion since 2002 to combat it, the country's opium market is booming, propelled by steady demand and an insurgency that has assumed an increasingly hands-on role in the trade,...

Cashing Out -- The Rational Male - The main reason the Tomassi SMV Graph is in any way contentious with the zealots of the feminine imperative is that it points out the ugly truth that the age range women attempt to cash in their SMV chips (27-30) in marriage is conveniently the time at which most women begin to acknowledge their lessened capacity to compete with the next wave of women entering their SMV peak.

Survive an "American Blackout" in an Apartment -- Apartment Prepper - How to survive a blackout while living in an apartment in a large city

Chronotypes: Are You an Early Bird or a Night Owl? -- Mark's Daily Apple - Longtime readers of this blog would likely say that the answer to that question depends on several factors: how much light exposure you get during the day, how much light exposure you get at night, how your cortisol fluctuates throughout the day, how much coffee you drink and when you drink it, or what time you go to sleep. The best part is that they’re all modifiable. By changing them, we can change how we feel in the morning, how productive we are at certain hours, and whether we need that extra cup of coffee in the afternoon. We are not at the mercy of powers unbeknownst to us. We hold the power.

What Will Obamacare Cost Men? -- Patriactionary - The USA has long had a fragmented insurance market, with regulations set by state. Some states ban “discrimination” against women in the charging of higher rates for their higher usage of health care, so rates for men and women are the same. Most states, however, allow insurers to charge more based on the sex (NOT the gender, get that straight!) of the buyer. Until now, that is.

The Wall Street Code -- Jesse's Cafe Americain -  Most of the complexity [in the stock markets] is unnecessary and designed for asymmetric advantage for insiders, and not for liquidity which is the great bogeyman of the Street. HFT (High Frequency Trading) is predatory in nature and provides no liquidity. Liquidity is not volume, it is the money that stands in the market in the locus of genuine price discovery, and stands its ground on that, and not on the next price tick.

The Hyped Campus Rape That Wasn't -- Cathy Young - The scandal started, like many scandals do these days, in the social media. On October 12, amidst the school's Homecoming Weekend festivities, photos and a video of two young people engaged in a public sex act near the campus--the man on his knees performing oral sex on the woman while she leaned against a plate glass window, half sitting on its ledge--showed up online and promptly spread on Twitter.

Affordable Cartel Collusions -- Hawaiian libertarian - The ACA is the perfect name for this Fascist take over of the Health Care and Insurance industry, just like everything else in our Brave New World Order. Such a ludicrous name for this Government sponsored and enforced cartel creation is based on the principle of Inversions.

Paleofuturism for the Man; Archeofuturism for the People -- Jack Donovan - There are 3 types of people in the world: People who haven’t heard of the paleo diet, people who have tried the paleo diet, and people who can’t wait to tell you how stupid it is.

Why Post-Scarcity Economics is Scary -- Captain Capitalism - Realize you, me and everybody else works a fair percentage of our lives working up the money to pay for everything.  But if "everything" (or most everything) were free, what would the economy be about then?  What would humans work and live for?

Living Like a Woman -- Six Million Pounds - Please 'friend' me on Facebook. I will do the same for you. One reason women bounce back from redundancy so well is that they have four hundred online friends to contact while we have six.

"I" for Inevitable -- Sovereign Man - Just over 400-years ago today, a group of 13 conspirators were caught trying to assassinate King James I of England and blow up the House of Lords in what became known as the Gunpowder Treason.

No One is Coming -- The Positivity Blog - ... in the end, if you are an adult then no one is coming. No one is coming to save you. You have to take responsibility for your own life and what happens in it.

Cycle Power for Charging Laptops -- Living Off-Grid - A US design firm claims to have developed a revolutionary new desk with a built-in cycle, pedalling of which generates electrical power to charge devices such as laptops.

Married to the State -- Conn Carroll, Townhall - Married women appear to believe that the centuries old risk-sharing institution of marriage, suits them just fine. No government interference needed. Walsh, and many of her single lady counterparts, on the other hand, apparently view marriage as an assault on "women's autonomy." They would prefer that the federal government protect them from the heightened expenses and risks of pregnancy and child birth.

Video: Hank Shaw Hunts It Down On the "Meat Eater" Season Finale (2min) -- Food Republic - Sardianian Hare Stew

Reality Fails the Bechdel Test -- Stares at the World - You expect movie ratings to tell you whether a film contains nudity, sex, profanity or violence. Now cinemas in Sweden are introducing a new rating to highlight gender bias, or rather the absence of it. To get an A rating, a movie must pass the so-called Bechdel test, which means it must have at least two named female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man.

Building a Sawbuck: Work Smarter in the Woodpile -- Survival Sherpa - Sawbucks were common in pioneer days before the advent of modern chainsaws. This woodpile tool is a simple trestle with cross bracing that not only cradles logs but is responsible for saving the backs of millions of homesteaders.

Broken Homes, Broken Boys -- Kay Hymowitz - Autor and Wasserman cite a large study by University of Chicago sociologists Marianne Bertrand and Jessica Pan, which shows that, by fifth grade, fatherless boys were more disruptive than peers from two-parent families, and by eighth grade, they had a substantially greater likelihood of getting suspended. And justice experts have long known that juvenile facilities and adult jails overflow with sons from broken families.

More on Schools -- Fred Reed -  Predictably, I was accused of hating women. Actually it is not women that I find objectionable, but American women, who are a small part of the world’s women. 

18 Things Every 18 Year Old Should Know -- Bold & Determined - 1). Don't Get Married, 2). Do Not Make Women Your Priority, 3). College Doesn't Guarantee Money, 4). You Can Make Money On The Internet, 5). World Travel Is Not Just A Fantasy, 6). Gym Time Is Critical When You Are Young, 7). Your Family Is Full Of BS, 8). Work Ethic Is Critical To Develop Early, 9). Everything Is Not Just "A" or "B," There is a "C" Solution, 10). You Have A Future, 11). Pay Attention to Money, 12). Find Older, Accomplished Men and Pick Their Brains, 13). Feminism Is a Sick Joke, 14). If You Need a Job, Get a Sales Job or a Manual Labor Job, 15). Don't Buy Anything On Credit, 16).

916 Days: Only A Band Of Brothers Remain In This Market -- Silver Doctors/TF Metals - Gold topped out 25 months ago in September of 2011. It has been 30 months since silver briefly bested the magical, mystical 50 dollar mark in April of 2011.  To put it another way, Gold has been down for the last 759 days, while the high in silver took place 916 days ago.

Be eager and earnest to learn more and more about the art of joyful living, the art of being happy always. People are happy when they dress well, wear rich clothes and strut about the streets. At times, this may cause envy among the little children who cannot afford these, and one may even feel elated with that response! But you can afford to be legitimately proud, only when you are able to control the vagaries of your mind and direct your emotions along honourable and healthy channels, braving even the ridicule of your so-called friends. That is true freedom; that is true success. If you reach that stage, then you become a seasoned driver and you can be trusted with the wheel on any road, and with any cargo, however precious. –SSB Nov 1959
