this concept is paradigm shifting. if, and that is a big “if,” fatness can literally be contagious, i see some really interesting research in the near term. i’m betting there is already some focus being applied to see if the opposite effect might be possible.
i think the dog is actually a maltese. anyhow, this story raises far more questions than it answers. how does a grown man get mauled by a little rat-dog? how does one diagnose a dog as clinically depressed? what caused this furry little doorstop to go all cujo on chirac? and why did chirac name his dog sumo?
this is for all you foodies out there. too lazy to drive out to eat at CUT? no problem. now you’re only a trip to costco away from the best steak out there. BUT- at $2,299.00, is it a deal? let’s look at the numbers. at costco, $2,300 dollars buys you 15 pounds of wagyu beef. at 16 ounces to a pound, that works out to 240 ounces. this rounds out to about $9.60 an ounce. at wolfgang’s CUT, an 8 ounce steak will cost about $160 dollars, or about $20 an ounce. of course, at that price they’ll throw in the cooking part. 🙂 so in true costco fashion, this deal works out as long as you are okay with the volume.
anime fans will notice design similarities to the giant robo ova. i think some of the same people are working here, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. i predict really interesting and cool visuals but a mediocre script.
a little background research will confirm that Michael Lewis’ opinion should be taken seriously. i’m not in finance/econ, but for me this article feels exactly on point. i hope that those in power pay attention to the concept of Conflict of Interest as they look to reform the SEC. the future health of the USA may to some degree depend on it.
