    Will this be on the test?

    I couldn’t listen to the whole piece but I’m ready to go back to the beginning and hang on the shore line all day eating seafood. Problem is who is going to do the farming to grow barley, allowing the brewmaster to make the beer. I’m fairly certain making beer was the impetus for agriculture.

    Wow! Since I started blogging about seven years ago there’s been an explosion of content on the internet. It’s quite amazing. Talk about revolutions, that’s a revolution. Since I don’t watch TV, I do find it interesting some of changes I have seen: the speed of talking, the increased use of the interruption, and the increased use of visual effects.

    One book I read on the topic of domestication of animals is Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs and Steel. The book outlines the qualities of animals suitable for domestication and why we are unlikely to find more animals suitable for domestication in the future.

    Don’t watch the PBS special on the book. They miss some very important parts, especially about governments. Surprise. Surprise.

    KOS, I have been doing some background research on Simon Black of the Sovereign Man. Simon Black references Dr Joseph Tainter’s book The Collapse of Complex Societies. Normally, I would just read the book but I haven’t had time so I found this video. The economic illiteracy in academic environmentalists in the room horrified me.

    If you watch it, what do you think?

    C, makes some good points. The stuff about rome farming was pretty interesting… boy are we screwed without fossil fuels at this point.

    Noticed this one in the side bar, explains why ebola is a threat, population growth etc. Its grounds enough to make you think its certainly possible someone may have their own little solution for population control.
