People from Ohio like to be called "Buckeyes"
Buckeyes are "potty-mouthed" nuts from the Fetid Buckeye tree.

Yeah...You know what was conveniently left out of all that bullshit?

Forgiveness.

You can be forgiven for everything in that, that, whateverthefuckyouwanttocallit.

And all it takes is asking.

You don't have to be perfect. Just forgiven.

All you have to do is ask, and forgiveness will be given to you.
Because God said so.

Spotify music choice data crunching suggests that as we age, we stop listening to pop music and become more settled in our preferences. Or put another way, old people listen to old music.

This spiral shows that over time, people listen to less popular artists.
(A couple other charts at the link above show other music trends by gender and parenthood.)

Interesting graph is in the video.

Have you ever felt like the government doesnít really care what you think?

Professors Martin Gilens (Princeton University) and Benjamin I. Page (Northwestern University) looked at more than 20 years worth of data to answer a simple question: Does the government represent the people?

Their study took data from nearly 2000 public opinion surveys and compared it to the policies that ended up becoming law. In other words, they compared what the public wanted to what the government actually did. What they found was extremely unsettling: The opinions of 90% of Americans have essentially no impact at all.

Followed it through to the video linked in the upper right at the end. Their plan to fix it actually seems pretty solid. Their first target for city-wide anti-corruption laws for politicians, Tallahassee, got passed last year. This year they're looking to add more cities, and hopefully a state or two. Local is the way to go.

I liked me some TsingTao back in the day. It goes really well with Chinese take-aways, don't cha know.

I'm surprised not to see Cobra (Indian beer favoured over here too) on the chart.

But I can attest that if you ask for a lager in Amsterdam you will get Heineken every time. In half litre glasses that are 4/5 beer and 1/5 head. So everyone who goes to Amsterdam gets head one way or another.
It's actually a perfect tourist beer, especially in the hot weather. Light and not too gassy (that's all in the froth).

It's the African versions of familiar beers you have to watch out for.
They're usually brewed locally under licence to contain more alcohol than in their country of origin, and the heat means you sweat all the useful liquid out far too quickly, making you thirsty, so you have another...
And over here (England) beers in Afro-Caribbean areas re-import them. You can get in real trouble drinking with Jamaicans, trust me. And I'm not talking about the men.

And in the US there are currently around 3500 breweries, however of the top ten beers in sales, six come from Anheuser-Busch.
