The Art of Manliness: The Problem with Minimalism – Whenever I find myself thinking about my pioneer ancestors who could put everything their whole family owned in a wagon I wonder why it took just me an entire moving truck (and not exactly one of the smaller ones). But they owned more then they put in the wagon, that was just all they brought with them for the trip. I like that this article points out that minimalism is still obsessed with the possession of things, it’s just obsessed with the possession of a small number of things.

Scientific American: What Do Great Musicians Have in Common? DNA – With practice you can probably be good at just about anything, but we can’t all be great at whatever we want. I really enjoyed Monsters University because Mike was never going to be a good scarer no matter how hard he tried. He needed to find what he was good at and then run with it.

Runner’s World: 26.2 Thoughts You Have During a Marathon – Because it’s funny. Doing math while you run is totally a thing Brett. I’m not weird (for that reason).

BBC News | WW1 commemorations: Royals ‘plant’ ceramic poppies at Tower of London – I think this is a wonderful tribute. The individuality of it is moving.

    Just because doing math while you run is “totally a thing” (and I’ll take your word for it that it’s totally a thing and not just partially a thing, because I’m sure you calculated it during your 10K last month) it doesn’t mean you’re NOT weird for that reason. :brett:
