12/5    If Harry Potter is rewritten in a modern style using science
        instead magic, and using real people and references instead of
        fiction, what could it include? I'll start:
        -Slytherin Pureblood = Nazi Ayran
        -Muggle = melting pot
        -Dobby = Black slavery, illiterate
        -Voldemort = GWB? Hitler? ??
        -Wizards = scientists? lawyers?
        -Giants = jocks?
        \_ fundamentalists
        -Muggle = melting pot
        \_ pragmatists
        -Dobby = Black slavery, illiterate
        \_ the working poor, economic slavery, child labour
        \_ Underpaid H1B visa holders in Silicon Valley doing shitty
           coding stuff that greencard holders don't want to do
        -Voldemort = GWB? Hitler? ??
        \_ any charismatic leader leading with fear.  There's a
        tonne to choose from.
        -Wizards = scientists? lawyers?
        \_ professionals.  Magic replaces science/engineering.
           Check out Dresden Files.  Wizards there can't even be in the
           same room as technology, it breaks/shorts out, glitches, dies.
        -Giants = jocks?
        \_ neanderthals, or people soon to be culturally irrelevant
           \_ you mean the Jews?        -Ahmadinejad
           \_ 'old europe'
           \_ libertarians
           \_ the middle class          -GWB
        \_ check out the many journey to the west versions. there is one
           by leiji which is sci-fi space/android themed.

7/8     Why do immigrants kick ass in science?
        http://www.aapt.org/aboutaapt/2013_USPhysicsTravelers_pr060713.cfm
        \_ Cuz they have no friends
        \_ Cuz excelling in science requires less background of the local
           culture than excelling in other areas.

        No wonder the UC is short in funding.  Just put a damn lid on!
        \_ Before you complain "Now that there are studies for everything,
           some day we'll hear about studiets on studies", please note that the
           Pentagon is always one step ahead of you:
