Researchers Claim To Be Able To Determine Political Leaning By How Messy You Are

Mahtar Re:Pop psychology (592 comments)

Oh please. Look, I'm also a libertarian (read: crazy?). I believe in personal responsibility, free markets and free minds (to steal Reason's tagline) and all that other good stuff.

My apartment is a total fucking mess. This is not an abdication of personal responsibility, nor does it really say anything about me as a person other than 'well he must find some things in life more important than a tidy living area'.

At any rate, your fallacy lies in the assumption that one's personal space cannot be functional unless it meets your prissy standards of neatness.

Toledo Police Cruisers to accept sponsorship

Mahtar Mahtar writes  |  about 7 years ago

Mahtar (324436) writes "The Police Dept. of The City of Toledo, OH, recently began a campaign soliciting businesses to place ads upon new squad cars for 15,000 USD per car. Ostensibly to offset the costs of a new fleet; two such 'sponsorships' buys a single cruiser. Thus far, at least two accounts — an atty. and a local retail business — have signed up. "We are probably going to go ahead and put the ads for these businesses on the left and right rear quarter panels of the new cars when they come in," the chief said. The ads themselves are 3ft. x 1ft. and will be placed next to the "911" markers. These Miranda Rights brought to you by Big Jim's Criminal Defense Madhouse. Let Big Jim save you from Big Blue!"
