Happy Hour 3/4/11

Scientists have proven the faster something moves the slower time goes by relative to that object. They did this by putting one atomic clock on an airplane and one on the ground. After flying the atomic clock around for a few hours, it proved to be a fraction of a second behind the atomic clock that stayed on earth.

When things move faster, time slows down.

But I could have told them that. The older I get, the slower I move and the faster time seems to go by.

This week flew by, here’s your Friday happy hour!

From My Life
I’m just about done reading End The Fed, a book by Ron Paul about the United States’ monetary system. If you’ve never looked in to the fed before, this is a good place to start. It’s obviously biased towards the Austrian economics position, but you may find it hard to argue.

My girlfriend is a natural saver. When I explained to her that the federal reserve robs her of cash by setting artificially low interest rates, she finally started to understand why paying attention to government matters.

And when I told her a sales tax would allow her to save money tax free as opposed to an income tax… well, let’s just say this persuasive libertarian is making some intellectual ground with her.
