Damn You Pi…

you have tormented me long enough … I am a supporter of tau now… 😐

What’s amazing is the ‘conversion experience’: people find themselves almost violently angry at pi. They feel like they’ve been lied to their whole lives, so it’s amazing how many people express their displeasure with pi in the strongest possible terms – often involving profanity.

“I don’t condone any actual violence – that would be really bizarre, wouldn’t it?”

What happens in the west stays in the west

A lot of the things I have been thinking about the UN and its Humanitarian mission has been really well put in this article

For years, the US and the NATO countries have been trying to vanquish the Al Qaeda and the Taliban, without much success. In the past decade, the US and other western militaries, operating in Iraq and Afghanistan to take just two recent examples, have killed and maimed scores of civilians. But except for cursory apologies, none of these nations or the defenders of human rights operating from the safe havens of western capitals have bothered to even acknowledge their gross mistakes.

Another instance of hidden socialism… 😐 …. πŸ˜€

AT&T Inc., the second-biggest U.S. mobile-phone company, agreed to pay $2.35 billion in cash to buy assets that regulators forced Verizon Wireless to sell.

The network assets and mobile licenses are for 79 service regions in 18 states, mostly rural areas, Dallas-based AT&T said today in a statement. Costs to integrate subscribers and other expenses will dilute earnings per share by about 6 cents in the year after the deal closes, AT&T said.

I dont understand something about the AIG hue and cry. Executives have made obscene amounts of money for decades. It is what capitalistic society is about.. :D. SO suddenly if an executive flies first class it is outrageous?/.. 😐 and then this tax bill passed through the US senate..

The 328-93 House vote came amid a national outcry over $165 million AIG paid in bonuses last week after receiving $173 billion in bailout funds as part of the government’s efforts to stabilize credit markets. President Barack Obama said he was β€œstunned” by the bonuses and vowed to recoup the money. Nineteen state governments have begun probes of the AIG bonuses.

That is kind of the biggest cover up of the lack of finacial regulation and accountability. It adds up to .. I will give you 173 Billion dollars and then subtract 165 million so that the tax payers money is going to the right cause. That still amounts to 172.99 Billion dollars.. πŸ˜€ okay I know I am weak in math.. 😐 .. πŸ˜€ and the fact is .. there was no regulation in place which said- the money u are drawing is to pay of bad assets not keep your employees happy!
