The past two decades have seen China build its deep-sea fishing fleet into the thousands, resulting in China depleting its own stock of fish in oceans closest to them. In turn, their fishermen have sailed to other oceans across the world to continue deep-sea fishing.
I wanted to say something about YIMBY wins in California while the west coast is asleep. Lurking in the background of the organizing work and the visionary elected officials is a key structural insight — it matters which level of government makes the decision.
Worth repeating that the upside to Russian people of winning of the war and conquering Ukraine is ~zero. All this death and suffering is for nothing and peace without annexation would have large benefits.
Brett Favre should join Lance Armstrong on the list most loathed Athletes in American culture, not only for betraying the games that made them famous but for being absolute frauds and using that fame to cheat others who've done it the right way

In this moment of peril, I must underscore my duty as Secretary-General to uphold the Charter. The Charter is clear. Any annexation of a State’s territory by another State resulting from the threat or use of force is a violation of the Principles of the Charter & int’l law.

Had we fought the USSR in the 80s we would have just GMLRSed the shit out of them and won. (Except then it would have gone nuclear and destroyed the world.)
But that's okay, because SF Planning actually plans on turning in its final element *late* and subjecting San Francisco to the Builder's Element. No, I am not joking. SFBOS hearings are only scheduled to start in March… after the 2014 element expires in January.
