Overnight Open Thread (26 Sep 2014)


High Heels

Are high heels really women's sexiest wardrobe accessory?

Cocktails By State

The most popular cocktails by state.

Some more drinking stats.

The top 10% of adult US drinkers consume an average of 74 alcoholic beverages per week—that's more than 10 drinks a day each. How many such drinkers are there? Some 24 million of them.
More than half of the alcohol consumed in a year is thanks to this top 10%. As for the rest of America, 30% of adults don't drink, and another 30% drink an average of less than one drink each week. If you drink one glass of wine a day, you're in the top 30% of US drinkers; two glasses a day and you're in the top 20%.

Drones And Taxes

I'm sure the IRS is already on this with the EPA close to follow. Argentina uses drones to root out wealthy tax evaders.

Technology Market Experimentation In Regulated Industries

Are administrative pilot projects bad for retail markets? Good question.

Since 2008, multiple smart grid pilot projects have been occurring in the US, funded jointly through regulated utility investments and taxpayer-funded Department of Energy cost sharing. In this bureaucratic market environment, market experimentation takes the form of the large-scale, multi-year pilot project. The regulated utility (after approval from the state public utility commission) publishes a request for proposals from smart grid technology vendors to sell devices and systems that provide a pre-determined range of services specified in the RFP. The regulated utility, not the end user, is thus the vendor’s primary customer.


Beer Pipeline

This gives a whole new meaning to Keystone Pipeline (do they still have Keystone beer?). Probably the one pipeline the White House would support.

Not that we need any excuses to drink beer, but here are some supposed health benefits of beer.

Obit Of The Day

Good stuff. Obit of the day.
