    You think you have any shot of getting anyone in Portland to listen to you?

    They freaked out over "the Big One" long before it was cool. They've moved on. Like Facebook and the Decemberists.

    When I lived in Portland we had the Red Cross come into our office one day to talk about emergency preparedness, and the lady was like “I usually tell people to bring an emergency bag to keep at the office, but in this building you better just hope the earthquake happens on a weekend.”

    Someone had better tell the good people at Sassy's and the Acrop that the end is near.

    For real this time though.

    Interesting story about water, almonds, and the family behind the pom wonderful pomegranate juice. As a descendant of farm workers in the valley who spent time there every year growing up, I think the author does a good job capturing the feeling of place in the Central valley

    Interesting read,..eta..I was born in Lodi and spent some summers driving a D7 with a scraper leveling land for farmers in the area for $8 an hour in the early 80’s it’s kind of fucked these guys are only making a few dollars more after 30+ years

    The Worst U.S. Maritime Disaster in Decades

    Heuristics traps at sea: Both Davidson and Randolph apparently believed they would be dealing with a Category 1 hurricane, and at some distance from the eye. Neither they nor the National Hurricane Center suspected that the storm would increase to a Category 3 and accelerate that very night.

    Looking for Life on a Flat Earth

    What a burgeoning movement says about science, solace, and how a theory becomes truth.


    Too many good quotes but these two I really like.

    At five-thirty, the conference broke for the day and the crowd spilled out into the hotel atrium for happy hour. I needed a drink, and, to my surprise, Evangelical flat-Earthers sometimes do, too; many had gravitated, or perhaps simply fallen, toward the bar
    Believing in a flat Earth is hard work; there is so much to relearn. The price of open-mindedness is isolation. “It took me about four months before I could talk to someone outside the apartment about this,” Marble said during his presentation. “You’ve gotta be ready to be called crazy.” Several people described the relief of “coming out” as a flat-Earther. “You can tell people you’re gay, you can tell people you’re Christian, but you don’t get ridiculed like a flat-Earther

    The Stanford Prison Experiment was a sham.

    https://medium.com/s/trustissues/the...e-d869212b1f62

    After reviewing some of Le Texier’s evidence, textbook author Greg Feist told me he is considering taking a firmer stand in the forthcoming edition of Psychology: Perspectives and Connections.

    “I hope there does come a point, now that we know what we do, where Zimbardo’s narrative dies,” Feist said. “Unfortunately it’s not going to happen soon, but hopefully it will happen. Because I just think it’s a…”

    Feist paused, searching for the appropriate word, then settled on a simple one.

    “It is a lie.”
