i am constantly impressed at the depth of hubski's back archive. i was fairly certain this would be the first instance of hakai magazine being posted here, but of course it wasn't

i was in hannibal, missouri the other weekend and the nicest building was probably the funeral home. definitely a pattern.

what is it?

edit: has the post button always said 'contribute'? it makes me want to do the opposite

note that step 2 can, when the time is right, definitely involve investing in property rather than stocks. doesn't have to, and whether it's a good idea depends heavily on what part of the country you live in, but it's certainly an option

i have always thought half dome would make a fuckin hella coin

the nyt op-ed from 1907 which pointed out that lincoln would have been deeply disappointed to cause a break from washingtonian tradition is correct

i think we should put plants on our coins

i'd choose helping the poorest people in the US who still do have some money (walmart shoppers) over invasive regulation that helps mom and pop stores

as i hope would anyone?

it's a sad choice but it's not even a choice

    I’m pretty sure that it never crossed the mind of people attacking WalMart’s wages to do the math on WalMart’s income statement. I think it’s because the core of their argument is about ethics, and not about making workers richer. Unfortunately, the ethics of the argument are just as perverse as the numbers.

Only if anti-corporatism is ethics. Which of course it is, these days. Somehow.
