My bookmarks for September 8th through September 10th

  • "The Government" – "Try something. Every time somebody complains about the evils or failings of 'the government,' strike out 'the government' and see what results." (via @marcoarment)
  • People get red-dy – "The idea of a ginger festival may sound like little more than a bit of fun, but when 3,000 redheads came together for a recent gathering it became a bonding experience."
  • Placebos Are Getting More Effective. Drugmakers Are Desperate to Know Why. – "It's not that the old meds are getting weaker, drug developers say. It's as if the placebo effect is somehow getting stronger."
