Dating and Stupidity

I am going to talk in broad terms about men and women.  What I am saying here does not apply perfectly to every man or every woman.  That's not the point.  It applies well enough, to enough men and enough women, that it's useful for analysis.  Now that I have stated this, I'm not going … Continue reading Dating and Stupidity

Space Force, Part 11: It begins

It took a holiday to give me the time I needed to catch up on Space Force news.  I have had browser tabs sitting open for months, waiting for me to write something about the articles. [EDIT: added] Opinion on why we need a Space Force, from way back in June 2018, by Doug Loverro, … Continue reading Space Force, Part 11: It begins

A word on editing posts after publishing

I occasionally edit posts after publishing them, without notification.  Yes, that's called 'stealth editing'.  Weasels are sneaky, after all.  I do that to improve presentation, as well as fix grammatical or spelling errors.  Unlike the mainstream media, I do not make stealth edits to change the meaning of a post, nor to save myself from … Continue reading A word on editing posts after publishing

Nuclear Posture

What Weasel is reading: The 2018 Nuclear Posture Review Why?  Because nuclear weapons are important! What Weasel is drinking: usually a bottle of Negra Modelo or a glass of a nice Tempranillo or Malbec. The report is available on this page in several languages, and as an executive summary. https://dod.defense.gov/News/Special-Reports/0218_npr/ US nuclear weapons today include … Continue reading Nuclear Posture

Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 18

Violence as chronicled in this blog includes assault, vandalism, threats of violence, and doxxing.  As usual, by the time I have compiled two long posts full of left-on-right violence, there's a shorter list of links to stories of right-on-left violence that should also come to light.  This is that list of links.  All one of … Continue reading Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 18

Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 17

Usually I point out that my political violence analysis includes threats, vandalism, doxxing.  Well, sometimes the leftists go all the way to murder.  It is times like those that leftists magically become rightists in the eyes of the media.  Well, they are not.  If you want to know what motivated the shooters (typically one of … Continue reading Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 17

Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 15

I'm overdue to continue the study of political violence.  Stuff happened, but with the help of my insurance company, my house is in great shape.  This series has hot a sort of rhythm.  Two long posts about left-on-right (or occasionally left on not-quite-so left) violence, followed by one very short post on right-on-left violence.  This … Continue reading Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 15

Mental Models and Predictions: Environmental Disasters

As I discussed in this post, people make predictions which can turn out to be reasonably accurate or complete failures.  Predictions are based on mental models, and bad predictions can indicate deeply flawed mental models, especially if many predictions prove to be wrong over a long time period.  To put it plainly, People (maybe very … Continue reading Mental Models and Predictions: Environmental Disasters
