#4620: It's only a mystery if you believe the government figures.

Economists are struggling to understand why wage growth is stagnant with unemployment at 5.5%.

It's because the unemployment data is fake, that's why. The real unemployment figure is somewhere around 23%, and there is absolutely no competition whatsoever for workers; where demand is small and supply is high, the price of a commodity will stagnate or fall. This isn't that complicated.

So Apple announces their craptastic watch, and it turns out to have an awful battery life and cost far more than it's worth. But hey, you can get a gold one for $17,000! It'll be obsolete in a year and you can't replace the battery, but ZOMG GOLD APPLE WATCH!

Still more evidence of data tampering by NOAA because global warming is real, and they'll prove it is even if they have to make it up.

...I wonder whatever happened to that MP3 player I had, the one with the touch screen that I bought about four years ago? I don't expect that the thing still works.

Trying to find out when I bought it, though, I came across a bit of wisdom for the ages in this Fungus post:
I think there may be a lesson there for all of us.

Anyway, April 21, 2011 was when I bought it. I think I used it three or four times. Now I haven't the foggiest idea where the hell it is.

Well, I suppose it'll turn up eventually.
