As the following graph shows, the actual value of the US dollar in 2013 was only 5 cents:



Does anybody know what it is now? I couldn't find any graphs for this year.

The fed didn't kill anything; the graph is actually showing us the slow result of inflation - but that too is pretty much irrelevant. We have abundance now. And in 1913 life was miserable, short, and painful compared to what it is today. That's really all you need to know.

We continue to use this horrible currency and we continue to be relatively fucking rich. Why are these anti-fed people complaining.

Because the Fed, as lax as they are, still won't allow the big bucks to get away with all they want to. Not enough to be too big to fail, they want to be too big to be restrained.

Not really a graph or chart. But a correlation.

So you like bitter flavors, do you, you antisocial jerk?

Quote:
Abstract

In two studies, we investigated how bitter taste preferences might be associated with antisocial personality traits. Two US American community samples (total N = 953; mean age = 35.65 years; 48% females) self-reported their taste preferences using two complementary preference measures and answered a number of personality questionnaires assessing Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality. The results of both studies confirmed the hypothesis that bitter taste preferences are positively associated with malevolent personality traits, with the most robust relation to everyday sadism and psychopathy.
Emphasis mine

I believe it, in fact would extend it to spicy hot as well.

The government, specifically the Bureau of Labor Statistics has used the Census Bureau, to conduct the American Time Use Survey, since 2003. They've come up with graphs of a number of activities, 8 of which can be found here.

This is 2 of them.

Does masturbating count as 'household activity'?

Hear hear. I knew a woman that put jabenero pepper sauce on the tacos she ate every night. Every night. So much that her lips would chap. This coincided with an increasingly angry and unforgiving demeanor. I wondered at the time if there was a correlation. Very interesting.

I wonder if the converse holds true. Do people with a sweet tooth have a sweet demeanor?

What you have to make to get into the 1% in each state, and the ratio between the average income of the 99%, vs the average income of the 1%, in each state.

The second (blue) map is much more informative.

Colorado is NA - maybe due to MJ-startup's sucking up all the cash of the 1%-ers,
by the 5%-ers but not being able to put it in thru the banking system
