Monday evening linkage

A question Americans need to understand, and non-Americans ought to understand: Why Do Most Of The Successful Startups Come Out Of The USA?

Another question we need to understand: Why didn’t Obama mention entrepreneurs and startups in his big economic speech?

Is the McDonald's double cheeseburger the greatest food in human history? Possibly, and not only if you are on a road trip with children.

Biking vs. running. DE is all about the biking.

Richard Branson on the best places to find inspiration.

Are you smarter than an 8th grader from 1912?

Bad news for "our friends" the Saudis:

Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has warned that the kingdom's petroleum-dependent economy is increasingly vulnerable as rising production of U.S. shale oil and gas decreases global demand for crude from members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.

In an open letter dated May 13 addressed to Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi and several other ministers, which was published Sunday on a Twitter account previously used by Prince Alwaleed, he said the kingdom won't be able to fulfill its plan to increase its crude production capacity to 15 million barrels because of the shale threat.

Remember, the people who oppose production of American shale oil and gas are working on behalf of the Saudis, even if they don't know it.

All about MOOCs. We need to get smarter, faster. (See 40 web sites that will make you "cleverer" right now.)

Keep the flag flying.
