Jeff's Cabin & Greenhouse -- Tiny House Design - A few years back Jeff sent me a link to a tiny house he had built as a place to stay while building his larger home. He finished his larger home, but his original tiny house still gets used by guests.

Would You Date An Unemployed Man? - 75% of Women Would Not -- The Economic Collapse -  If you are a man living in America today, to a large degree your value to society is determined by how much money you make.  It should not be that way, but that is how our society works.  And if you do not have a job at all and you cannot take care of your own family, then almost everyone looks down on you even if it is not your fault.  Once you are unemployed, it becomes the number one defining factor in your life.  Yes, there are a few people that may look at you in the same way, but in the eyes of most you will now be less of a man.  Sadly, this is particularly true when it comes to romantic relationships.  Unemployed men tend to have unhappier marriages, they tend to divorce more frequently, and as you will see below approximately 75 percent of all American women do not have any interest in dating unemployed men.  Unfortunately for American men, the decline of the U.S. economy in recent years has had a disproportionate impact on them.  The past five years have been the worst years for employment for American men in the post-World War II era, and things are only going to get worse from here.

Get Perspective by Changing Your Habits -- Badger Hut - If you are planning out your life goals like anyone who has his head in the game should be doing, think about things you do or money you spend that don’t add value, especially if those things are done by mindless habit rather than passionate commitment. Try simplifying your life; you might even surprise yourself with what you learn. You’ll never get that time, money or emotional energy back – so make sure they are going towards things you’ll know were worth the time.

Yale Can Look at All Student Email -- Minding the Campus - The Yale Daily News has an interesting scoop today--it turns out that the university has the authority to access a student's email account, without informing the student. The paper interviewed 73 students on campus; only three, according to the Daily News, "were aware of the specifics of Yale's policy." The paper's report further indicates that Yale student regulation guides either bury notice of the policy or (in the case of graduate students) don't mention the policy at all.

Another Terrifying Black Swan is Coming Our Way -- John Embry/King World News - “I know they (central planners) are doing this because the banking system is seriously impaired on a global basis.  The fact is the powers that be have to keep the collateral elevated -- the stocks, bonds, etc, and so they are going through great pains with this quantitative easing to do that. At the same time, to mask what they are doing, they are coming out with the idea once again that they are going to start tapering.  This is preposterous because it would destroy all of the various assets they are trying to elevate.  While all of this misinformation and propaganda is coming out of the Fed, they have to subdue the canary in the coal mine, gold and silver, which is the real money.  They have gone to great lengths in the metals market to beat the hell out of it using the paper markets.

Medical Marijuana Patients to Sue Health Canada -- Cannabis Culture - Thousands of Canadians across the country are planning a class action lawsuit against Health Canada after they were outed as medical marijuana users in a mass mail out last week.

Making Better Choices in the Future -- Peak Prosperity - Sooner rather than later we’ll have to make better choices. We’ll have to redesign the human habitat in America because our current environs will become uninhabitable. The means and modes for doing this are already understood. They do not require heroic “innovation” or great leaps of “new technology.” Mostly they require a decent respect for easily referenced history and a readjustment of our values in the general direction of promoting life over death. This means for accomplishing this will be the subject of Part 2 of this essay, but it is necessary to review a pathology report of the damage done.

It's Just Good Business -- Hawaiian Libertarian - As time progresses, knowledge to manufacture, maintain, repair and reuse many items of commerce becomes lost amongst the masses, increasing dependency on the Global Corporate Cartels and antiquating any formerly held notions of self-sufficiency and thrift. This is the very essence of our waste-driven, consumerist culture of materialistic consumption.

32 Privacy Destroying Technologies That Are Systematically Transforming America Into a Giant Prison -- Silver Doctors - If you live in the United States, you live in a high tech surveillance grid that is becoming more oppressive with each passing dayWe live in a society where liberty and freedom are literally being strangled to death, but most Americans don’t seem to care. Do you know who else gets watched, tracked and monitored 24 hours a day? Prisoners do. Surveillance is a form of control, and at this point we are little more than inmates inside a gigantic Big Brother surveillance grid. Posted below is a list of 32 privacy destroying technologies that are systematically transforming America into a giant prison.

How We Stood Up To The Mob And Won -- RooshV - It’s hard to imagine the anger generated by Tuthmosis if you weren’t in the thick of it. The article’s real-time feed on Twitter was constant in calling for its removal, and I can only imagine the discussions taking place on Facebook where we received 100x the traffic. Over five change.org petitions were started against ROK (one received around 12,000 signatures). Two girls cried on Youtube. Pretty girls—not dumpy feminists—shared their outrage. We were bashed on Huffington Post, Jezebel, and Daily Mail, among others. I saw many tweets to Anonymous, begging them to take us down, in addition to the obligatory death threats and calls for our castration.
