Chris and I talked today. As a result, I am feeling significantly better. Not health-wise, because I am still sick with this stupid cold. But mentally, in terms of regaining a positive balance and outlook. That had been lacking in the past week or two. That is all.
And, like Awesome Kong, I would like to win. Photo credit.
From F. A. Hayek’s 1945 article “The Use of Knowledge in Society”: But those who clamor for “conscious direction”—and who cannot believe that anything which has evolved without design (and even without our understanding it) should solve problems which we should not be able to solve consciously—should remember this: The problem is precisely how to [...]
Oh man. I just switched to this new radio station that showed up in iTunes a week or two ago, ActivistMusicNetwork-ObamaRadio.org, and the first song that came on was Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be”. Probably a good theme for Mr. Obama’s campaign—”All I know, all I know, love will save the day.” Throw a “hope” and [...]
Yum. One of my favorite songs, especially as of a summer or two ago. Actually, it’s the song that made me fall in love with Straylight Run in the first place. Back then I gave it a meaning different than the one I now attribute to it. Even today, though, part of that meaning revolves [...]
I have a lot to write about. Unfortunately, the writing that I must focus on at this moment is my ECON paper, which is due at 11:00 AM, and which I have not yet started (it’s 2:03 AM). But, in the course of searching for people’s names on Google, I came across a reference to [...]
So, I think I may have some kind of food poisoning. About an hour ago I started feeling weak and nauseous, and now I am shivering and have a temperature of 96.5ºF. I still feel nauseous, my tummy is gurgling a bit, and I seem to be developing a headache. I’ve turned my space heater [...]
My mind went off on a weird tangent today in AMST201, Culture and Politics of the 1850s. One of the characters in the book we were discussing is named Ravoni, and that reminded me of ravioli (and The Game). So, for the rest of class, I listed various kinds of pasta in the margin of [...]
Today I learned that methodological individualism makes so much more sense than methodological collectivism. Thanks, ECON256! Or, I should say, thanks Adelstein… because ECON256 is just an abstraction that we use as shorthand for the collective actions of a certain group of individuals! After all, a class doesn’t actually have the ability to teach me [...]
It was actually two days of thoughts, big and small, but I really only remember the things that happened today, so I’m going to just blend them all into one. As you may guess, this is going to be one of those rambling stream-of-consciousness entries that jumps from topic to topic as they come to [...]
