Highlights (02.25)

This week’s high­lights is super-sized because I skipped last week. Follow me on twitter and you’ll see many of these links early:

30 Facts About Debt In America — It’s hard not to be shocked by this. “#5 For house­holds that have credit card debt, the average amount of credit card ebt is an astounding $15,799.”

10 Places Not To Use Your Debit Card? — Steve Stewart wrote this fantastic article a year ago. Unfor­tu­nately, it’s just as true today as it was back then.

You Think You’re Free? — Matt Rawling has a great article critiquing the FDA shutting down an Amish farmer for selling his milk to a few locals. You should also read the Wash­ington Times article about it. Completely ridiculous!

Academic Hypocricy- I’ll just quote this Thomas Sowell article, “if any business operated this way, selling customers something that was very costly in time and money, and which the sellers knew in advance was almost certain to disap­point their expec­ta­tions, academics would be bursting with indig­na­tion — and demanding full disclo­sure to the customers, if not criminal pros­e­cu­tions. But The Chronicle of Higher Education reports “faculty resis­tance” to collecting and publishing infor­ma­tion on what happens to a university’s history Ph.D.s after they leave the ivy-covered walls with high hopes and low prospects.”

Why Pirate TV Shows? — This great comic shows the pitfalls of trying to legally watch a TV show in the modern age. (warning: language)

What Publishers Can Learn From Airlines — This tongue in cheek article is required reading for publishers, book lovers, and anyone who has tried to fly recently.

Static Shock Blackout Trailer — I loved Static Shock when I was a kid and I was espe­cially happy when this fan film was funded on Kick­starter. Check out the trailer!

    WOW! Good content CAN live forever. I posted my rebuttal to the “10 places not to use debit” article 23 months ago)! Thank Alex!

    It makes me happy that there are so many Static Shock fans out there besides me and you.
