Worksheet: World Military Spending
Which country is the most militaristic in the world? Humankind spends over $39,000 a second on the military. In 2015 one country spent $6,818 a second (that's well over $400,000 per minute); more on the military than the next seven countries combined. Why?

Bombs Away 2016
To commemorate the first appearance of an American President in the first city to be obliterated by a nuclear bomb I've updated Bombs Away to include a 2016 version of the handout. Yes, the visit by President Obama is significant but as David Swanson indicated in his blog entry Obama in Hiroshima paints a peace sign on a bomb Obama did little more than justify war. I've yet to get through his whole speech. Too much hypocrisy.
Fifty-Five Today Update
My birthday's been and gone. Currently replies by spambots out number genuine replies by over ten to one. Most of the site is still offline. Perhaps its time has come.
But the lease has been paid for. So I'll wait.
The form below still works...
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you?
Happy Birthday, dear Wise Hat
Life new or through?
Last year the reports of my birthday were greatly exaggerated. I have this notion that a birthday could and should be celebrated one day for each year of existence. So for 54 days last year I added a page a day to this site. The overall response lead me to question the relevance and usefulness of Wise Hat. This birthday around I've decided to find out by killing the site off. If a hundred or more individuals contact me within the next fifty-five days Wise Hat will return and continue, if not, to borrow from Vonnegut, so it goes, or rather, so it went.
