Brad’s Beer Review: Alpine Brewing Company – Duet

Weekends tend to be a slow time for political blogs, so it’s a perfect time to get into another passion. So I’m happy to announce a new weekend off-topic feature here: Brad’s Beer Review. As many of you already know, I’m a homebrewer and a beer geek. What’s a beer “geek”, you [probably don't] ask, […]

Love Objectively

At most every wedding I have ever attended, 1 Corinthians 13:5 is the selected Bible verse: “Love is not rude, is not selfish…” This overly used quotation notwithstanding, the Objectivist’s view of love is that love necessarily is selfish. Gary Hull explains: Imagine a Valentine’s Day card which takes this premise seriously. Imagine receiving a […]

Happiness Is A Choice

I’m not an old or wise man. I’m assuredly not qualified to dole out advice — particularly to people I’ve never met. I was raised in a family where one didn’t readily admit the existence of ones feelings much less talk about them. For everything I’ve learned, I’m still filled with more dysfunctions than I […]

My Take [So Far] On Google+

Having “grown up” online — a bit more than most of my contemporaries, as I had the techno-geek life of BBS’ing and AOHell in the early days of the internet — I’ve always had as much of an “online” presence as off. Today, this means that many of my personal hobbies, whether it be making/drinking […]

Monday Meme

Off topic, and downright embarrassing. From Megan McArdle, the idea is to go back to Amazon.com, log in and find your first order. Mine — well, bear in mind that I was 21 years old at the time, but back in 1999 my first order occurred on my 21st birthday, so I assume it was […]

Friday Diversion

Well, since I broached the third rail subject last night, I might as well atone with something a little lighter. I saw this and thought it was pretty cool. Click on the below photo to link to Flowing Data, the original source. Hat Tip: The Big Picture

And The Slimmed-Down Lady Sings – TLP Bracket Challenge

Jennifer Hudson might have slimmed down to sing “One Shining Moment”, but the NCAA seems to want to turn March Madness into a bloated flabby mess. It’s a stupid decision, but then again, the NCAA isn’t known for its desire to act in the fans’ best interests. After all, if basketball decided a champion the […]

TLP Bracket Challenge Update — And Then There Were Two

The NCAA Tournament has been one of the most exciting in recent memory, with more major upsets than just about anyone could have rationally expected. As such, even prior to the Final Four, we’ve seen just about every entrant in the Liberty Papers Bracket Challenge go bust. Below are the standings: 1. Nate McHugh – […]

Liberty Papers Bracket Challenge Update

Well, big things have happened this weekend. The opening round of the NCAA tournament brought far more excitement than last year’s, with some major-league upsets. I’ve heard that some big vote occurred in Washington as well, but I’ll have to look into that later. In our own bracket challenge, the first weekend has ‘sploded quite […]

Liberty Papers Bracket Challenge 2010

March Madness has arrived. For the first time, I’ve decided to throw together a Liberty Papers Bracket Challenge. Hosted at CBS Sports (p/w “thomaspaine”), feel free to sign up. Hurry, of course, as the games start Thursday morning. Scoring rules are somewhat standard, but with a kick on the first two rounds. Picking a winner […]

National Grammar Day Open Thread

I am a stickler for grammar, but it is also one of my pet peeves. So on National Grammar Day, I’d like to post a few of them. #1 – Nested parentheses: The general grammar rule is never to nest parentheses. But as an engineer with the combination of math, computer code, and boolean logic […]

Off Topic – Halloween Humor

I’ve been looking for a reason to share this video for a long time. Why? Because its one of the funniest videos I’ve seen on YouTube for awhile. Yeah, I realize that this video has little to nothing to do with the theme or purpose* of The Liberty Papers but sometimes a little humor can […]
