Stuff below the fold

Don't look now: China's financial bubble is about to pop.

and no, I don't understand it except it seems to be saying that the US will print money to help the world cope.


UN will push new plans to remake the world.


The new agenda is also intended to  bring  “a new sense of global partnership   into national and international politics”; must  cause the world to “act now to halt the alarming pace of climate change and environmental degradation;” and bring about a “rapid shift to sustainable patterns of consumption and production,” to name just a few things itemized in the document.

 Heh. Sounds like the plot of the LEGO MOVIE

An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.

Freakonomics podcast part one on why marriage is changing.

The latest "two minute hate" on facebook was a two minute love: A photo of girlscouts selling cookies outside a marijuana store.

Wonder if they'd think it was cute if they were selling cookies outside of a gun/sporting good store?

Facebook widens Gender options to 50 odd options

the term "odd" is not me: That's what the BBC says.

The 50-odd options, which include "bi-gender", "transgender", "androgynous" and "transsexual", will allow people "to express themselves in an authentic way", Facebook said in a post.
That should confuse the NSA when they download information on you.

the BBC also has Hemingway's favorite Burger Recipe.

the message of the girl scouts photo by the marijuana stories not "Girl Scouts Love Weed" but "Girl Scouts Know How to Hustle Up Business."

Gun buyers, regardless of how the scouts, you or I feel about them, aren't notorious for having the munchies. How would that help sell cookies? Or be a good joke? Sorry you missed the punchline.
