  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct13Post.mp4 There are a lot of paradoxes in modern life. Many poets and philosophers have spoken and written about these. The things we feel compelled to do are the absolute wrong things. You meet a girl, you hit it off. Then you text, and she doesn't text back right away. You very much WANT to see her text. You get a good feeling when she texts you. When normal guys hook up with ladies, unless you have a long history of lady slaying, it gives you a bit of "I can't believe this is happening" feeling. Most guys get
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct10Post.mp4 Self deception is one of our most powerful traits. This was very necessary back in the old days. If humans were like Vulcans, who only were based on pure logic, we would have died out a long, long time ago. Imagine a group of ancient "logical" hunters finding some wooly mammoth tracks. They followed them, and found some wooly mammoth poop. Then they'd calculate how far ahead of them the wooly mammoth was based on how dry the poop was. If they were purely logical, they would have had a certain cutoff. Maybe
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July21Post.mp4 One of the curious things about our brains is the difference between structure and content. Our brains are essentially pattern recognition devices. But most of the time this happens subconsciously. In the background. For example, imagine a bunch of ancient cavemen hanging around next to some tall brown grass. And in that tall grass was a lion sneaking up on them. Their subconscious is ALWAYS scanning for patterns and structures. Their subconscious would see the lion's hair mixed in with the tops of the gra
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb07Post.mp4 Once I went to large, big box electronic store to pick something up. They had this long, snaking line, where you'd get to the front and have to look down the long row of cashiers. When one was available, they'd hold up a sign with a number, letting the next person in line know. While you were waiting, there was lots of last minute things. Kind of like the stuff you see on the counter of gas station convenience stores and supermarket checkout lines. But since this was a LONG snaking line, there was a TON of stuff.
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov22Post.mp4 The fear of rejection is very, very common. It's a remnant of our childhood. All kids ask for a billion things. Even if a kid has a 50% success rate, this also means they have a 50% failure rate. Which means even the most successful humans have a crap ton of memories of asking and being told no. Sometimes with patience and kindness. Sometimes with anger and frustration. But we humans are pretty resilient. If you have kids, you maybe wish sometimes that your kids weren't so resilient. We keep pushi

  7. Way back in the day, life was pretty easy. At least, in some ways. In other ways it sucked. But one of the ways it was relatively easy was we silly humans didn't have to make a lot of tough choices. You went to school long enough (high school or college) and then got a job. So long as you did what you were told, you could make enough money to live a decent life. Of course, that's not true for hardly anybody anymore. Nowadays, you've always got to stay on top of things. Which on the one hand, gives us a lot more flexibility and freedom. But on the ot
  8. I love watching movies. All kinds, but in particular I'm a big fan of the "found footage" genre. Many people think they suck, but for some reason I find them entertaining. A normal group of people doing normal things and then a bunch of ghosts or aliens or something shows up and kills everybody. There are some really good ones, and some not so good ones. It's easy to understand why they are pretty popular, at least with movie makers. They're cheap to make (you don't need a lot of equipment or expensive actors) and the potential is huge, due to viral marketing.
  9. The other day I saw a friend of mine. He told me that because it was so cold over the previous weekend, he never left his house. He's married with a couple of kids, so staying in all weeekend wouldn't be so bad. I don't know about you, but I need to get out at least a couple of times a day. Otherwise I'll feel like a hermit. Sure, being sick with the flu is one thing, when all you want to do is sleep. But I always feel like I'm missing out if I stay indoors for too long. The biggest reason, of course, is other people. Humans are social creatures and we a
  10. Whenever you start off on any kind of project, especially if it's a long project, momentum is important. Take somebody who starts to exercise, after having been a couch potato for many years. The first couple weeks pretty much suck. It's hard to start, and it's hard to keep going. Whether you're riding on a stationary bike, going for a walk or jog outside, or doing some calisthenics, part of your brain is screaming bloody murder. After all, it's pretty insane, on one level, to do something that is painful, without a clear goal in sight. Sure, if you are hiking up a ste
