  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May06Post.mp4 Back when I was in high school, I ran cross country. And even before that, I was an avid jogger. And I used to play these tricks on myself when I was out running. One of them was when I turned up my street, and only had a hundred yards left, I would play mind games on myself. I would pretend that I was running to the end of my street. But my house was only halfway up. This would give me some mental energy to push all the way through. This was to counter a habit I'd had of slowing into the finish line.
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar15Post.mp4 It's common to have folks who are successful in one area of life, but suck in others. A common movie character, and fairly common real life character is the guy who is a smooth-playing, lady-killer. The guy whose got tons of notches on his bed, but always behind on his rent. Or the guy who is the killer of the boardroom, master of negotiations, but gets floored and obliterated when his wife says she is leaving him. This is also true in sports. Michael Jordan, arguably one of the best basketball players of all time, a
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb14Post.mp4 Science is pretty cool, but also pretty wacky. Not really, since our brains can't really handle much. At least not intuitively. We can only make sense of very simple interactions. We see A happen, and we can sort of predict that B might happen. Even Bastiat, and old school economist from a couple centuries ago noted this. He said it's not what you see that's important, it's what you don't see. He wasn't talking about ghosts or spirits. He was talking about the more complex outcomes of the things we see
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb10Post.mp4 Humans are fantastic at self deception. We want something, but we are too terrified to try and get it. So we pretend we don't want it. Even better, is we do this by taking the reason we don't want it, and use that very same reason to make ourselves feel BETTER than everybody else. Humans are not only primates, but hierarchical primates. Self-organizing, hierarchical primates. But since the primate, self-organizing hierarchy part of us was around LONG before conscious thought, it operates mostly subconsciously

  7. Most things can easily be seen in two parts. Night and day. Yin and Yang. Good and bad. Parasympathetic and sympathetic. Working and resting. Creating and re-creating. Sleeping and waking. Darkness and light. This is one of those chicken and egg questions. Does our body have all kind of dual functions because that is the nature of the universe? Or do we only perceive it so BECAUSE our body has plenty of dual functions? These kinds of questions are fun to talk about. But the essentially don't help us much. A lot of things can

  9. One of the reasons economics is called the “dismal science” is because of the idea of opportunity costs. If you’ve got ten bucks in your pocket, you can buy whatever you can get for ten bucks. Whatever you decide to buy, when you hand over that ten bucks, that’s the direct cost. The opportunity costs are all the things you CAN’T buy once you make your decision. Say you’re in fast food land. And you decide to buy a gigantic carne asada burrito combo with your ten bucks. The opportunity costs are all the things you CAN’T buy once you decide on the burrito.
