In the infamous Planned Parenthood videos, the organization feared the kinds of headlines that the New York Times might run if their actions were publicized. Turns out, they needn’t have worried.

Aaron K defends the infamous Armored Daredevil costume. Though not perfect, I actually thought it was pretty great and a step up from the typical costume. On the other hand, I think the first Jean-Paul Valley Batman costume was superior to Bruce Wayne’s in every way, but at the same time it just wouldn’t have worked as a permanent costume. Maybe Armored Daredevil couldn’t work, either.

    Recycling – A good example of what happens when the public sees a service as a black box with “arbitrary rules” and obscured economics. I bet if you polled the public, a large percentage of people would think that recycling centers employ a small army to sort the recycling (& thus the trash as well), or they have some magic technology that does it (like the electronic eye & airpuff setup at the potato chip plant). What they do use is still pretty cool, given the economics, but the public is largely unaware.
