When I was six, a substitute school bus driver asked me for my address. How the hell was I supposed to know? You’re the school bus driver. I’m six! But I digress.

As described in this 5-minute TED talk, the earth has been divided into 57 trillion 3-meter squares, with each assigned a unique three-word address. (The address for the Jefferson Memorial, for example: event.courier.tests.)

In the middle of a favela with no street signs — but have an Internet connection? Domino’s pizza — or the paramedics — will find you from those three words.
The deficit is ballooning under their stewardship and the Republicans want to cut taxes — massively — for the rich? Really? Didn’t we try this under George W. Bush? He exploded the debt but over eight years added fewer than 800,000 private sector jobs. Clinton raised taxes on the top 1%, as did Obama, bringing deficits back into line — and (between the two of them) adding more than 30 million private sector jobs. So I think we’ve proved it: slashing taxes for the rich creates deficits, not jobs. It’s irresponsible. And the Republicans are determined to do it. Again.
Quote of the Day
So I'm looking at a house in Sherman Oaks and it's 100 grand, and the realtor says, 'Well, it's got a great view.' For 100 grand I'd better open up the curtains and see breasts against the window.~Garry Shandling
