Every summer I try to improve on my recipe. (It’s for the perennially-forthcoming best-seller, Cooking Like A Guy™.)
I thought I had peaked at: “The easiest way to cook corn — if it’s really sweet and fresh — is not to. Just shuck and eat. No cooking at all!”
How do you improve on that? It’s […]
I spend way too much time on my iPhone playing Words With Friends. If I were smart — and wanted to get smarter (or at least sharper, as verified by numerous peer-reviewed studies) — I would use at least part of that time to exercise my brain instead. (Turns out, crossword puzzles and […]
. . . you should think the “Iran deal” through a lot better than critics like Mike Huckabee or Marco Rubio have. (E.g., “Marco Rubio says Iran deal means we have to help defend Iran from Israel or other allies” — except, as the article makes clear, no, it doesn’t.)

Well, I suppose it’s actually more like coloring your grey hair.
But it’s still way better because it saves so much water.

(Even longer-term solutions can be found here: 24 Inspiring Lawn-Free Yards.)
Seriously: between not wasting 30% of the water-guzzling foods we grow (Friday’s post) […]
You may recall my recent ingestion of creamed spinach “best bought by” October 27, 2007. When it comes to wasting not in order to want not (and live light on the land) I defer to no one.
It makes me crazy when friends use too much coffee (a couple of teaspoonsful per mug, […]
Kiss many of the world’s most populous cities good-bye.
In what may prove to be a turning point for political action on climate change, a breathtaking new study casts extreme doubt about the near-term stability of global sea levels.
The study—written by James Hansen, NASA’s former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom […]
STEVE JOBS IS A GENIUS
How much we all owe him, and the brilliant folks he inspired. My friend Aaron Scott Kirsten writes:
I misplaced my iPhone this weekend. Misplaced it on the roof of the car and drove away. The music was playing via Bluetooth so I didn’t notice it wasn’t more secure. […]
Everyone may be created equal, but it’s a peculiarity of our democracy that the citizens of Wyoming have WAY more political power per capita than the citizens of California (fewer than 600,000 Wyomingans control two Senate seats, versus the 37 million or so Californians who have to share the same amount of power) — and more still than […]
Want a six-minute tear-jerker? It’s here: Love Won. A long journey, but the United States Supreme Court ordered it so, 5-4.
And for those who rightly worry that you can be married Sunday but fired Monday — once your employer sees it in the paper and realizes you’re gay — the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission […]
Yesterday I urged you to find time to watch the President’s news conference. (And offered this relatively short take from Zbigniew Brzezinski, characterizing Israel’s Mr. Netanyahu as “not a serious person.”)
Jerry: “I rarely watch these things but once I started, couldn’t help but take in the entire hour’s press conference with great pride and […]
