Let’s stay together

Al Green:

Still here?

You godless heathens!

Pastaless lasagna

So I finally got around to making this, and it tastes really good. The problem is, I didn’t drain the cooked meat enough and I used too much sauce, so it has vast amounts of liquid that shouldn’t be there.

The key thing is, I followed the recommendation to use deli-style chicken breast instead of lasagna pasta, and it works very well. Tasty!

Jerry Brown

My hero. How inspiring to read that someone understands the mess that is federally-driven education “reform.” I wish we had more governors like him.

How to spot a psychopath

I’ve dated a few people who score toward the high end. How about you?

Palin moving to Scottsdale?

Yeah, they’re crazy enough to elect her.


Wall Street’s next big short?

Reading Terminal Market

The day two friends ate (almost) everything. I don’t go to the terminal market without a game plan, because it’s a dangerous place to browse. But with this, I can live vicariously!

Carving up the Arctic

In other words, more war for new oil:

It is considered the final frontier for oil and gas exploitation, and secret US embassy cables published by WikiLeaks confirm that nations are battling to “carve up” the Arctic’s vast resources.

“The twenty-first century will see a fight for resources,” Russian Ambassador to NATO Dmitry Rogozin was quoted as saying in a 2010 cable. “Russia should not be defeated in this fight.”

Along with exposing an estimated 22 per cent of the world’s oil, ice melting due to global warming will open new shipping lanes, the arteries of global commerce, which nations are competing to control. And Russia certainly is not the only country eyeing the frozen prize.

Per Stig Moller, then Danish foreign minister, mused in a 2009 cable that “new shipping routes and natural resource discoveries would eventually place the region at the centre of world politics”.
