GIFTS FOR THE 99%

BEAVER SKI/BOARD WAX | $12.95 |beaverwax.com | And now that you have your board, you're going to need to keep it well-waxed. Enter Beaver Wax, another bastion of the sustainably-made-materials movement. It comes in reusable packaging (a/k/a a bag), and has a unique hand-poured manufacturing process that's done in small amounts, ensuring each bar of wax stays consistent with the right amount of additives. Which, according to the good people at Beaver Wax, means they've "set new standards for the recreational wax industry." Considering we haven't the foggiest idea how wax is made, and care not to find out (something about it just sounds Fight Clubsoap-making-y), any process that is designed to continually improve quality and environmental sustainability is okay by us - and the rest of the 99 percent. Plus, there's something about its name that gives us a puerile snicker. Say it with us: beaver wax.

    You can’t turn around these days and not hear of someone from the one percent telling a 99-percenter to go take a shower and get a job. And as much as we take sides on the matter, today we’re putting aside our differences (more or less) to present both factions a quick gift guide for the 2011-’12 ski season.

    As often happens when one makes judgments based on frivolous psychological connections (see: book, cover), one is often quite wrong.

    No point in looking for an explanation or asking "why" something was said or done; Murdoch has no demonstrated ability to do so.
