Some thoughts while sitting in a coffee shop.

  • Why are coffee shops so loud? Don’t you want to promote conversation? Why have the music so loud? Perhaps it is so people won’t stay.
  • Politicians again doing exactly what the people don’t want. This should not surprise you. Self-rule is actually impossible, and any system that pretends to give it to you is telling you fairy stories.
  • One chainsaw is not enough. You need to have two. The moment you have a big tree fall on your property line, the chainsaw will break and you’ll not be able to finish the job. Get a spare.
  • Audiobook narrators will likely soon be replaced by AI narrators. This will be sad. R.C. Bray is so good!
  • Bret McKay is the best interviewer in the business.
  • I still like weightlifting, even though my strength levels are down.
  • The best part about owning a dog is that he’s always happy to see you. It’s not just because I give him belly rubs.
  • By the way, Bret, it’s because of your podcast that my wife consented to getting the dog.
  • On Twitter, it’s a common thing to say that “nothing ins happening.” This is true. The Nothing is happening, more and more every day.
  • Aristotle says happiness is an activity. This is a way to combat the previous point. Do something. Do Something! Find a noble activity to do. It will be better.
  • Fresh eggs are so good!
  • The best word processor is still vim.
