Nah. He's been at it a while - he probably loads $10k of gear into an $800 minivan.

Depends on the gig, of course, but most often these days it's around $7500 worth of gear (two guys worth: two amps, two pedal boards, six guitars, and stands) into a $9000 minivan. Also, I get paid a lot more than $50.

Well, at least you're not a classical musician.

Yeah, we're in debt.

speaking of which, i watched a doc last night about a big squatter building in caracas (tower of david, i think?), and everyone was praising the gov for letting them stay ... but the doc was from 2014 and i can't help but wonder if they've changed their minds since then

no, i was wondering how much the residents still supported the government

the whole thing was kind of pathetic ... a hulking office block with no power or working elevators, windows that leak and fall out and kids falling to their deaths, but people are so grateful to be allowed to live there: "thank you, chavez!"

talk about low expectations, man

Oh, well, if they are still allowed to be there is ONLY because they show support (but yeah, some may only be pretending because they really have nowhere else to go). THAT I have no doubt about.

Obviously, the guy on the left is the brains of the outfit. The other two are the muscle; the big guy on the right is the leg-breaking enforcer, the guy in the middle the quiet, stone cold killer ...

Maybe NOT: fashion designer is making faux leather from pineapple leaves.

BUT this allows me to bring up a point that was talked about by Steven Novella in the latest podcast of the Skeptics' Guide to the Universe.

He was describing the false economy of organic farming. One thing that gets significantly de-emphasized is that much of organic farming uses NATURAL forms of fertilizer, by far the most being manure produced by the cattle industry.

BUT one of the arguments for a more vegan food system is that we would be using at least fewer resources for raising cattle with the ideal being that there would be no cattle being raised for beef.

With such drastic reductions in the cattle industry perhaps to the point of disappearing entirely, what would be the source of that manure?

The basic problem is fixing atmospheric nitrogen into forms usable by plants then animals then US. Of course there are power-intensive means for making fertilizers but none of these are considered organic. There are crop-rotation means like growing alfalfa but this would REQUIRE that a much larger percentage of current food-production fields being allowed to fallow.

SO a question I asked myself after watching my linked video: do those pineapple farmers REALLY not use those fibers from the harvested pineapple plants as claimed in that video? Or are they "wasted" by being plowed into the ground to be fertilizer for subsequent seasons?
