Awesome link. I like the show me the money one. "Let's streamline bureaucracy by adding another layer on top!" always seemed like a dumb idea to me.

...because opening a PDF is so much harder than writing a comment to say you're not going to be opening a PDF

These are awesome, Abeizer, thank you. It's like being issued talking points for non-imbeciles.

In defence of Eideteker, I didn't link to individual articles because of the PDF thing, but the ones I read on subjects I'm somewhat familiar with were thought-provoking and most worthwhile. Gives me some confidence that the articles on issues I'm more ignorant of will also be educational.
