The posts collected here tend to oscillate wildly in both temperament and girth. It’s obscure detritus that I thought was interesting (that I might one day be able to blurt out, with a bit of savoir faire to make it sound like I am more knowledgeable about the world than I really am).
Mostly quotes and passages from books I liked. All flotsam is usually inexpertly paired together with my own musings which will then underscore how stupid I really am.
Batesian Mimicry – Something about black on yellow…
The McRaven commencement speech – Probably good advice.
Survivorship Bias – Because I made it. So can you. Or something like that.
Exodus – Quoting the good book.
The Intellectual – Hitch quote.
The Madness of Don Quixote – The best sort of madness.
Tilting at windmills – Very dangerous. Those windmills.
Lola – The Danish (neolithic) girl. Which is, as it turns out, nothing like the movie.
Arthropod agronomy – Fungi farming fervor. Alliterated for your pleasure.
I live, I die – Your commute is likely killing you. Maybe.
Tsundoku – Hey there’s a word for my particular psychosis.
No True Scotsman – would drink Bourbon.
Scarf pins – I remember checks. Vaguely.
Strategic AI – Passing and failing Turing tests.
