Nevada's had a constitutional ban on gay marriage for a few years now, but the Attorney General just announced that they'd no longer be defending it in court.

Is it just me, or is the LGBT movement making major progress right now?

They made major progress a decade ago. Americe is just catching up.

Anyway. Seems like an interesting survey.

26% of Americans apparently don't know the Earth orbits the sun, but 90% believe the benefits of Science outweight all dangers.

Edit: Also, the dollar appears to be collapsing.

It is?

The author of that article is a moron.  For instance he says the dollar is collapsing because foreign countries have large holdings of the currency... but might fall further because they might sell those holdings.  You don't need to be an economist to see the contradiction there.  But as an economist you'd know that the first part is the stupid part, they have the large holdings of dollars specifically because they are trying to inflate the dollar value and make exports of their goods more competative.

The much less stupid story would be "why is the Renminbi rising?".  And the answer would be: because the chinese government, afraid of inflation has decided they want it to in order to foster more domestic consumption.  They are pursuing this policy by no longer using their reserves of dollars to artificially peg the Renminbi to a lower level and are instead letting it get traded.

Regarding marriage? Not really. A decade ago (2004) only two countries (Netherlands and Belgium) had legalized same-sex marriage, and one Canadian province (Ontario) and one US state (Massachusetts) were on the cusp on doing so.

So America isn't really "catching up"; in fact, it's been in the game the entire time.

That's the thing about being Belgian, the rest of the world is always behind you on social issue (Except for the Netherlands. We'll get you one day, Netherlands!)
