Video: Seabreacher watercraft.

The Seabreacher has a top speed of 50mph on the surface and 25mph underwater. Because the Seabreacher is positively buoyant, it needs speed in order to dive, which means the engine needs to be running, and the engine needs fresh air to breathe. The moment you dive too deep, the engine’s air supply is cut off and the engine immediately loses power; therefore, it pops back to the surface.

Because the regulators have the same psychological foibles as the regulatees — yet face far less direct feedback on their decisions than do those whom they regulate — turning more decision-making power over to government increases the frequency of human error and amplifies its ill-effects. Markets keep those errors less numerous and their effects more confined.

Human beings are not laboratory rats to be controlled and conditioned by some elite of their number who, somehow and without explanation, manage to become higher-order creatures simply by working for government and professing deep concern for the welfare of their lab animals.

I keep emphasising that the main difference between non-profit and for-profit is that non-profits are accountable to donors and for-profits are accountable to customers. This means that the non-profit sector is going to be more elitist and more less efficient than the for-profit sector. It does not mean, as so many people think, that the non-profit sector operates from better motives or provides more social benefit.

I am not saying that a non-profit sector is a bad thing. Just remember that it is inherently paternalistic, and that is problematic.

Social gatherings for me inevitably turn into me explaining monetary policy in the US and why they should be more concerned. I just led a mini discussion on the Austrian business cycle and how the Fed is ruining everything. They actually learned something and I had fun. It’s cool when people genuinely want to learn more and you expose them to the ideas for the first time.

Lucky you…

As for myself, this type of behavior drives away just about everyone I know.

LAPD busy ensuring your safety by detaining this dangerous Call of Duty character statue armed with a deadly assault rifle replica.

 LAPD entered the game developer’s studio around 7 PM and detained the studio head before centering in on the life-sized Call of Duty ‘Ghost’ statue. Based on a special forces character from the game, the statue can be seen above wearing military-grade equipment and wielding an assault rifle. Visible from outside the offices, the police spotted the realistic statue from outside and assumed they were facing a hostage/terror situation.
