Which of These Three Places Holds Osama bin Laden?


An essay in the MIT International Review uses biogeographic theories and satellite imagery to posit most likely hiding place of Osama bin Laden. And they make a pretty compelling case that he's probably hanging out in one of three places in the Pakistani city of Parrachinar. The methodology is ingenious, and the paper is an easy, short read (and it has satellite photos of the region and buildings in question). Check it out!

Personally, I think Osama is mouldering in a cave in Tora Bora, but if I had to bet on one of these I'd go with the one in the middle.

h/t to Seerov and Dan the Man.

Conclusive Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor

On Friday the 13th, Congress passes a bill letting Americans keep thirteen dollars a week of their own money (while taking many times that out of future generations' wallets), and some black cat is going to sign it into law next week.

Will you be needing any further evidence that Washington is not the answer to your problems?

Stay tuned...
