Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Axiom: Assume that there is some entity X which is such that there is no possible state of the world in which you would say anything about it.
Axiom: Define the relation "cares more about Y than X" such that for any entity Y in which there is a state of the world in which you would say something about it, you care more about Y than you do about X.
Lemma: Therefore, for any entity which you do comment about, you care more about it than you care about X.
Conclusion, after many ommitted stages: For any Y, it is always wrong (specifically, self-defeating in utterance) to say "I couldn't care less about Y" and correct (although tautologous) to say "I could care less about Y".
