HOT5 Daily 2/8/2009

1. "24 Things About to Disappear in America" Interesting predictions.

Representative Sample: 22. Movie Rental Stores 

2. "Paul on Politics: Market versus Government Economy" Not Ron Paul. Has many good points.

Representative Sample: purchases of added services arise out of good income from production and not vice versa. We cannot exist as a great nation on a service economy.

3. "Pictures of the day: polar bear attack" Vicious bear goes after man's leg.

Representative Sample: a sequence of graphic photos from an attack by a polar bear in Manitoba

4. "The Mythology Of Green Energy"  Things to keep in mind when people talk about green energy.

Representative Sample: did you think that the copper and aluminum and such used in windmills grow on renewable shrubs?

5. "Do the Rules of War..."  "...need to be declared obsolete?" Yes, if we are interested in reality. Links to a video looking at the issue from the perspective of fighting Hamas.

Representative Sample: The meaning of war crimes needs to be better understood since battlefields no longer exist.

  1. That link about the bear attack won't open for me, but if it's what I think it is, it turned out that the photos had nothing to do with a bear. I think the wound to the achilles tendon was caused by a shotgun. My mistake if what you've linked to is something different.

  2. It's a really cute bear cub going after a guy's leg. It's just playing around.
