We go to Nova Scotia in 2010 not long after our wives died. We are sporting old men in Bob's Z4 convertible. Starting in North Carolina, we go through all the New England states (although Tom... More > doesn't remember much). We see mansions in Connecticut and shacks in Maine. We see unbelievable landscapes in Cape Breton (which Tom also does not remember) and the Lik-a-Chik fast food joint, which, for some reason Tom has named this book. We got stopped by Mounties coming into Canada. There are stories which might be true. The false execution of a Japanese tourist in an old British fort. That's when Bob went bad. A spirit and a wolf in Gorham. A waitress who looked Brenda which resulted in a few minutes of insanity the next morning. A melee between old people on two tour buses trying to see Breton scenery. In Providence we spent a couple days with Genie who Tom has known longer than anyone in my life. Although not documented in book, we heard a woman scream in the bowels of ferry to Nova Scotia.< Less

Health care is not a classical market based system. Supply and demand functions need to be performed by a government mandated master market - typically called Single Payer - although it could be called Medicare. Parts The book has four parts. They are: 1. Merry-Go-Round 2. Single Payer 3. Insurance 4. History< Less

About stuff (which can be material or immaterial), desire (resulting from need or greed) and collapse. A collapse happens when desire exceeds stuff and stuff runs out. In the terms of this book,... More > infinity is crossed. The collapse can be visualized as an asymptotic curve jumping nothing. If the stuff is important, the collapse is important. There are two ways to avoid a collapse - reduce demand or increase the supply of stuff. Crossing Infinity "distills" six books about this subject. To distill a book is to capture its essence. The books distilled are (1) Great Disruption, (2)Upside of Down, (3) Coming Apart, (4) Collapse, (5) Black Swan and (6) Flat Earth.< Less
