    “Fruit flies with better sex lives live longer.”

    Brace yourselves. People who don’t realize the difference between humans and fruit-flies are coming.

  2. Jackson says:

    “Can ObamaCare be sold at the mall?”

    It can’t even be sold online, I doubt it can be sold at the mall.

  3. Billy says:

    “The next big thing: Personalized heart care.”

    Personalized healthcare in general is the next big thing.

    “Tyler Cowen explains why he didn’t do 23andMe.”

    He had some good reasons.

    “Government tax and spending policies combine to redistribute more than $2 trillion from the top 40 percent of families to the bottom 60 percent.”

    And yet no-one seems to have been lifted out of poverty by it.

    “Would you like a bot that answers emails for you?”

    No. I agonize over emails. Having a bot do it would worry me.

        It’s always a struggle to maintain basic social manners. I’m not turning that over to a machine.

  7. Floccina says:

    As a group, the bottom 60 percent of American families receive more back in total government spending than they pay in total taxes.

    Because of dead weight losses and other inefficiencies I am sure that the people from say 30% to 60% do not benefit from the transfer even though it is in there favor dollar wise.
