Just a little (link) love: Otters meet butterfly edition

August 17, 2017

LinkLove

This is America in 2017. This makes my heart HURT. I have dozens of Jewish friends, disabled friends, Hispanic friends, black friends, queer friends. They’re all targets for this hatred and this is not ok. 

Being too optimistic and too nice sound like good problems to have, but they ultimately lead to rushing—a not so good trend.” – yep. I have FINALLY figured this out and ruthlessly control the number of errands or tasks I commit to in a day. If I’m in charge of dropoff, I will also fit in one errand on the way home but no more than that, no matter how tempting it is.
Our brains are wired for instant gratification or hyperbolic discounting. My brain prefers to plan a year into the future and always wants the later, larger gratification instead of smaller, immediate gratification.

Snippets from Neil Gaiman on fear, speed of memory access (and mostly lack thereof, a thing I suffer from greatly these days), and sundry items.

Dating stories usually make me cringe and be ever so glad I’m not in that world now but the “efficient” 🙄 project manager setting up multiple dates in a night, and what happens as his dates find out, is just utterly fantastic.
