  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov24Post.mp4 I love horror movies. Good horror movies are hard to find. But the ones that ARE good, are really good. Believable character arcs. A careful calibration of deep and ancient human fears. Especially ones that have a really SICK reveal at the end. Who the villain is, etc. One such movie is "Orphan." Good build up, horrific ending. Starts out pretty predictable. Couple is thinking about adopting. They adopt a kid that SEEMS normal, but then everything falls apart. I remember one scene i

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov23Post.mp4 My very first experience with legal, commercialized gambling was as an observer. Way back in college, my buddy knew this guy that was a big time gambler. We drove a couple hours to watch him play. All I knew were the characters on TV. This guy was nothing like that. Since then, I've been to a lot of casinos. And most gamblers are, more or less, like the dudes on TV. But this guy was different. My buddy and I followed him around the casino. Finally he stopped at a table. A card game. He s

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov22Post.mp4 Most people are not very articulate. And this is very frustrating. We all love the ideas in our own brain. But when we try to express them, they usually don't sound NEARLY as good as they do inside our head. This is a very common movie and TV trope. From both angles. The speaker has a good idea, they try to express it, and fail. Then they say: "I'm not explaining this very well," while their friends wonder what the heck they are talking about. On the other side, the listener is watching them expla

  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov21Post.mp4 Jigsaw puzzles are fun. When I was a kid, way back in the day, they were fun. They are fun today. Go to any hobby type shop and you'll find tons of jigsaw puzzles. They say humans like puzzles in general. It feels good when we solve them. It feels good when we find two missing pieces that are supposed to be together. This ancient instinct, of solving puzzles, helped us to find food when it wasn't obvious. Stick a bunch of atoms in a container, add a little bit of heat and they'll start hooking up.

  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov20Post.mp4 A very good "meta strategy" is based on the golden rule. To treat others the way you would like to be treated. This idea has been around for a long time. It's so common, it sounds childish and even ineffective. It's often put together with similar sounding thoughts like "turn the other cheek." But it can be useful, but ONLY if you understand it and calibrate it. For example, the phrase "you gotta spend money to make money" is absolutely true. At the same time, it's far from guaranteed. You might even s

  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov19Post.mp4 Most everybody would agree that rapport is critical. Nobody would argue that you don't NEED rapport. Or that the opposite of rapport would useful. Rapport, of course, is a feeling you feel with another human. You feel comfortable with them. You don't have a lot of resistance. The more of this "feeling" you have, the easier any kind of communication is. Nobody, unless they'd just escaped from the loony bin, would recommend creating "anti-rapport" before any sales or persuasion. Of being super creepy, su

  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov18Post.mp4 When most of us see people we'd like to know, it makes us nervous. Whether they be a key person at a networking event, or an attractive and potential romantic interest, simply the DESIRE to create a positive impression causes problems. This is why people talk about things like "outcome independence." This is true, but just saying we should be more "outcome independent" is pretty worthless. It's like telling somebody struggling with weight loss to simply "eat less than you burn." Or somebody who is trying out for the
