I bet it smells great.

To help save the economy, the Government will announce next month that
the Immigration Department will start deporting seniors (instead of
illegals) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs. Older
people are easier to catch and will not remember how to get back home.
I started to cry when I thought of you. Then it dawned on me...oh,
shit...I'll see you on the bus.

LOL
 
I read an article about that 50 year old preacher from Alabama who died on Everest and thought, "At that age, he should know better.."
 
Never mind.
 
My wife laughed when I told her.

I think you meant climate "research".
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: Jun 12 10:56AM -0700

The $100k research scientists have been dropping like flies for some time. Primarily because pharma, wisely moved to an outsourcing model. Keeping all those guys on staff would be like you keeping a carpenter and plumber around the house.
 
Like most of us, the bench scientist hasn't disappeared, he's just been reincenitvized.
 
I'm happy for industry to fund education. I'm even happier that we get some random bureaucrat who is value negative out of the picture.
 
I think the decentralization of medical research is really good because we have lots of folks racing for innovation from different directions. Otherwise, we would have more of a monolithic development model driven by fewer incentives. Lots of orphan drugs in the pipeline. Lots of blue sky stuff being chased.

Eugh. Next thing you know, we'll get research as to the number of couples who made out to "In The Garden of Eden" by I. Ron Butterfly.

A great way to incentivize everyone out of science. Great for now, but the next generation isn't going to want to go that route. And then R&D will be dead.

To expand on this: most of the research is done by the grunts (postdocs and grad students) who only willingly take those sorts of jobs with the idea that there is something bigger down the road. When people start realizing that becoming a grad student or a postdoc does not lead to doing something bigger and better, you're going to lose your labor supply for these collaborations.

If I was having my house worked on 24/7 then I would want to keep a carpenter on staff.

The dumbassery in the follow ups is amazing.
 
I wonder if these folks literally pay themselves in the back.

Huh, well that's actually better because at least they had a reason instead of no reason at all.
Mercellus Bohren <mercellusb@yahoo.com>: Jun 12 01:33PM -0700

We lived in Austin from about 1990 to 1999. My wife went to the University of Texas and I worked at Dell. We lived off Spicewood Springs road in north Austin around Cat Mountain. My gym choices at the time were pretty thin, so I joined a small health club named Johnny Keel's NW Fitness Center. It was a small place in a strip center frequented by a bunch of old retired guys and a few middle-aged guys from the neighborhood.
 
It was really small. The weight room, treadmills, stationary bikes, and stair climbers were all packed into one room about the size of the seating area in a medium-sized McDonald's. There was little room to move around, but the clientele were friendly and easy going, so it wasn't that bad.
 
One day I was riding a stationary bike that was crammed next to another one. I had forgotten my music player and headphones, so I was listening to the ambient sounds of the room--huffing, puffing, grunting, and the occasional dropped weights.
 
A guy got on the bike next to me and started peddling furiously. He was shaking the bike. On purpose. His elbows would occasionally hit mine. I gave him the side eye. He was sort of stupid looking with his eyes closed rocking to the music coming through his headphones. At one point he really started started bouncing around on his seat and singing at the top of his lungs to the tune he was listening to. I honestly figured he might be mildly retarded or psychotic and tried to just ignore it, as did most of the others in the room. (we the sheeple)
 
When I went into the dry sauna in the men's locker room he was there. He was aggressively friendly, and very manic, interrogating me with political and some really personal questions. He was engaging, but started going off on some crazy stuff and I said bye and headed out. Never saw him there again.
 
That's no 'character' he's playing on his show. He's always been bat-shit crazy.
dotslashderek@gmail.com: Jun 12 02:13PM -0700

Yo, bohren. Interesting story.
 
Also, what sort of work situation were you looking at when you were thinking of moving back there a couple years ago - specifically, how were you planning on living in Lago Vista and working in austin? - I hear they're way behind on infrastructure to handle all the new folks and the commute can be a pita.
 
Cheers.

Obviously more to the story, but it makes one wonder what citizens can accomplish when governments get out of the way.

Quote 1 from that article:

When AT&T wanted to start developing cellular in 1947, the FCC rejected the idea,
 
Quote 2 from the same article:
 
One of the best examples of the FCC's opposition to competition that undermines its regulatory silos was the FCC's cozy but counterproductive relationship with the Bell telephone monopoly. Major technological innovations were delayed for decades in part because Bell was protected by the FCC from normal competitive pressures.
 
Maybe the author thought he could hide the obvious contradiction by referring to it as "AT&T" in one passage and "The Bell Telephone Monopoly" in the next one?
dotslashderek@gmail.com: Jun 12 01:28PM -0700

Oh, absolutely. That's why you see so much innovation coming out of alabama and mississippi, while it's nothing but stagnation and same old same old in california and new york.
 
Cheers.

You're out of your mind if you are a conservative and actually believe this.
