It is funny how a misunderstood joke has become a serious topic of
discussion, one that better minds than mine, "cough cough" under my breath

Robin Hanson mentioned somewhere in his website (here exactly
http://hanson.gmu.edu/ratlagent.html )something about "Rationality Agents"
and I'd like to hire one to do all my posting from now on.  What do you
charge per post, Robin?
