New Research Casts Doubt On the "10,000 Hour Rule" of Expertise

HornWumpus Re:More eugenics propaganda? (159 comments)

All the bias's you list come out in the wash if you use a reasonable study population. Unless you can show that identical twin incidence varies by income.

Scientists Seen As Competent But Not Trusted By Americans

HornWumpus Re:Science is not about trust (398 comments)

Conversely; anybody proposing that there is any new/clear evidence for AGW is also clearly lying for the same reason.

Science!=Scientist.

Science doesn't trust individual scientists ether. Hence peer review.

You can argue about definitions all day long. Marx doesn't get to make up the definitions BTW.

A Capitalist is someone who believes in the system of capitalism. Same as a Communist is someone who believes in the system of Communism.

Neither side gets to redefine the other. I own shares, I own part of a company, I employ people. I am a capitalist even if I work on things other than finance.

BTW marx was mind boggelingly wrong on all of his historic predictions. Why do you bother? His work belongs in the dust bin of history along with the dunces.

GM's preferential treatment of debt to the union pension fund has not been litigated, don't count it as an unmitigated success yet. The bond holders will still have their day in court.

Crispy Cream Donuts was once worth more than the entire remainder of the US baking industry.

Before you think of shorting, remember 'The market can remain irrational longer then you can remain solvent'. Buy out of the money put options instead, much safer. If you can find someone making the market.

Seriously don't trust anybody. Not politicians, scientists, lawyers, bankers etc. Are you listening Europe? Your government % of GDP says you trust government. Doesn't matter what you say.

Every individual scientist has some sort of axe to grind. That's why science has peer review. Science takes decades to become 'authoritative'.

World's Smallest 3G Module Will Connect Everything To the Internet

HornWumpus Re:Ahhh, the asshole comment (115 comments)

I realize from your comment that you're a pussy, so you won't understand. She's a passive aggressive control freak.

Your woman doesn't check your (call history/car mileage/email/cc bills) because she's concerned about your safety ether.

No doubt it already gets a snappy price for the cell phone companies. I'm thinking the insurers are customers for this data and are sick of paying so much.

Rather it proves you are a law abiding dweeb. 'Driving well' means much more than obeying laws. In some cases in means ignoring laws and driving fast.

There is no better information how well you drive than your driving history. This device is incapable of giving them better information. It is capable of telling them you are a law abiding rolling hazard, but it will only tell them the 'law abiding' part.

I'm tempted to get the free offer and take it to an autocross event. Just to see their reaction. I'd do it except I'm worried the bastards would send the information to my actual insurer.

Except it's a gimmick. They already know what kind of driver you are. They have your driving history.

What they are sorting for is people stupid enough to give an insurance company another excuse.
