Leftovers & links

ᐅ  I've only jogged a quarter of a mile, but boy is my index finger tired.

ᐅ  Amazon is introducing what it calls "wellness cubicles" for its employees, where overworked and overstressed workers can lock themselves away and scream and cry for a few minutes, before returning refreshed to their work.

ᐅ  I’ve seen only two episodes of Trevor Noah’s Daily Show, and didn't laugh much. Admittedly my viewing was early in his run, so maybe I should pop in and see if he’s gotten better? Or maybe The Daily Show should've ended when Jon Stewart left.

ᐅ  If you often think you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re hanging out in the wrong places. Or more likely you’re just an ass. Of course, I am almost always the smartest person in the room, but only because I live alone and don’t get out much.

ᐅ  Today I learned that banks in America used to print their own currency, before the feds started manufacturing dollar bills.

  1. Funny how weed has differnt effects as you get older, enormous difference between smoking at 23 compared to 15.

    The jogging thing is a trip. Loving the site man.

    1. Never was much into the weed. I'm guessing you've smoked more in the last month than I have in my life.

    When Pennsylvania Hospital made the radical decision to allow female students to attend a clinical medicine lecture, “pandemonium broke loose” among the male students, who hurled epithets and spitballs at the women. But the widely-reported riot gave considerable momentum to the women’s movement.

    1. "The Philadelphia jeering incident" — jeez. We've made some progress ...

      Now I'm just testing to see whether I can post an active link in comments ...

      Will it work?

    2. Cool, HTML works in comments. I might add a note somewhere saying that ...

  3. No, the Daily Show is now nothing much. It's about as funny and hard-hitting as the opening monologue on any of the late night shows, but there's no bite any more.

      I don't have cable, but every time I see the John Oliver show, I get wistful for the days of post-9-11 Jon Stewart Daily Show. I distinctly remember the show shifting on that fulcrum from mostly just humnorous to more political humor.

    2. John Oliver is my go-to now, but he's only on once a week with 22 weeks off every year, which is not enough John Oliver.
