commented on FAA Rules Against Amazon's Drones
Jeff Bezos is doing no such thing, anyone paying any amount of attention to commercial drone issues knew this was coming. He's probably been laying the groundwork for lobbying efforts for some time now. Amazon isn't ready to do drone delivery, it makes no sense for them to push to legalize it before they're ready, that would just open the door to smaller competitors beating them to the punch. Paul eternally seems to labor under the assumption that these kinds of regulations anger big businesses. They love these kinds of regulations, because only big businesses can do the long campaign to get them eventually crafted to serve themselves.
commented on SL Letter of the Day: Leaving Monogamy Behind
This is why you shouldn't date above your own attractiveness bracket. I remember being in that spot, engaged to a much hotter girl who came clean on wanting an open relationship. I sure wanted to make things work, but I just couldn't get past the feeling of being used, being the stable dependable "filler" relationship to tide things over between more exciting escapades. Dying a little inside each time she was out with her boyfriend. Moral of the story: Stick to someone who isn't more likely to find sex partners than you are.
