    I drink a small glass of red wine, with a good lunch, maybe once every quarter. My father still drinks one per day. Apart from that (and coffee), just water.

    Your comment is inconsistent. In the OP, there is nothing stating that it refers to current cars, you speak about brands, and brands are not only current cars, but also old cars. In fact, I would say...

    I disagree completely with this classification.

    Peugeot, Citro├źn and Renault are basically identical type of cars.

    The Lancia Delta Integrale is probably the most masculine car ever.

    I am libertarian, so anti-Socialist, but my view is the opposite: simplistic arguments that the winners deserve so are the first path towards autocracy. Some people that success will have merit,...

    The idea of self-reported quality of life is bogus. An example: in Spain, healthcare is completely free (exception: dentists). Spaniards take this for granted. Spaniards that have never lived abroad...

    The link in the OP is quite long, but I think they do not explore one possibility I always thought about intuitively: we choose a couple which is most likely to give healthy kids with us. I think we...

    Nassim Taleb makes the argument that IQ tests do not need to measure intelligence per se. For sure, they measure unintelligence (but as Taleb argues, many crude measurements would also do that).

    This story is so fascinating ... every time we have more and more subtleties.

    In fact, Occitan and Ligurian are both spoken in Monaco and in some parts of Italy. Geographically, it makes all the sense in the world. Now, Catalonia is more spread towards the south, but the...

    Yes, the reasons are the same: to suck resources without others realizing of that. The only differences are the lies used.

    The party is called CUP. Fortunately, they have only a few seats in the...

    Maybe you are right, at least partly. I am willing to concede my faults. And despite my claim, I do not think left wingers are bad per se. I think they are (often) bad now. Maybe one hundred years...
