Once you've seen one shopping center, you've seen a mall. [Oct. 27th, 2008|06:16 pm]

The centuries old practice of plowing farm fields, which has fallen from favor in recent years, is not only time consuming but also harmful to the environment. Research by Boston College’s Geology and Geophysics Department has determined that plowing releases 41 percent more carbon into the atmosphere than no-till farming. Carbon, incorporated into greenhouse gases, contributes to global warming. No-till farming also produces 15 percent more food on the same acreage then conventional farming, which is important for feeding a growing world population.

( Interesting. I know squat about farming, so I had no idea.)


And how to vote!

Also, if anyone wants to discuss the candidates, and the U.S. election, by all means, post here. It’s coming up. And I love a healthy debate. No attacks, or I’ll kick ya arse. :)

Is it an attack to quote Sir Winston Churchill who said "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."?

I've been following fivethirtyeight.com lately. It is statistics put together by someone who normally deals in statistics for sports. It will be interesting to see how his predictions come to pass, not just in the presidential races but more so in congress.

It's a good quote. :)

And I think I saw the guy you're talking about on Colbert. :) I like the predictions he had back then.

That's the one. It's also the least character based interview I've seen Colbert do in awhile. The only time he tried to interrupt and play his character of a conservative pundit who doesn't let facts get in his view of the world was when he challenged the win probability thinking it was a prediction of the popular vote.
