    Reviewing my old twitter posts…

    I thought I would review my old tweets to see if I had anything that is now embarrassing (didn’t find anything).  I did discover that none of the short coded StumbleUpon links work anymore.  the only thing worth reposting is my little song in code

    if (You==Sunshine && Me.IsExclusiveSunshine==true){
    if (Sky.Color==Color.Gray) {

    Thought of the day – from somewhere

    The desire to teach is much stronger than the desire to learn

    I’m not sure where I heard it, and it is probably a bit more apt if you substitute “lecture” instead of “teach”.

    The notion of privilege

    I think much talk of “privilege” is actually false modesty on the part of the speaker – probably 90% of it actually.  However, Arnold Kling has a list of other factors, particularly

    • being tall
    • having attractive features (or at least not being extremely unattractive)
    • being naturally outgoing (extroverted)
    • not having mental disorders, such as autism, depression, or schizophrenia
    • not having debilitating physical ailments or physical handicaps
    • growing up with your biological father (particularly if you are male).
    • having artistic gifts

    There is no political advantage to either side for these so no one ever talks about them…
