Joseph Stiglitz and Lawrence Lessig at Occupy Wall Street

Joseph Stiglitz and Lawrence Lessig at Occupy Wall Street | Internet of the absurd | Scoop.it

Joseph Stiglitz teaches at the Columbia Business School and Columbia's Department of Economics and, of course, won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2001. 

 

Given Lessig’s focus on how corporate money corrupts our political system, it’s no surprising that he would have something to say about the potential of the Wall Street protests.

Is marijuana kosher? Cannabis Chassidis: free the weed.

Is marijuana kosher? Cannabis Chassidis: free the weed. | Internet of the absurd | Scoop.it

The book Cannabis Chasidis: The Ancient and Emerging Torah of Drugs is an insightful, if puzzling, exploration of what Jewish sources think about drugs and chemical experimentation. The author, Yoseph Leib, hails from a traditional, observant Jewish background--but the wisdom given over in Cannabis Chasidis is anything but traditional.

 

Leib combines his own thoughts with ideas and quotes freely appropriated from Jewish texts and sages. He quotes Genesis, saying that God gave humanity "all seed-bearing plants for consumption" (1:29)--including, presumably, marijuana. And he retells Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav's admonition that each blade of grass "has its own song, its own power to heal, and its own angel, telling it to grow"--a testament, according to Leib, that even marijuana has a special "healing power."

This is why an octopus is more awesome than your mom - The Oatmeal

This is why an octopus is more awesome than your mom - The Oatmeal | Internet of the absurd | Scoop.it

Comparing moms to an octopus would be like pitting an army of savages against one well-oiled gatling gun sitting atop a hill. The mothers would charge the hill, hurling rocks and sticks; they'd roar righteous, compassionate battle cries of warriors who believe they are fighting for the betterment of humanity. They'd truly fight from the heart.


Meanwhile the gatling gun would rotate in a precise semicircle and mow them down like dogs.
