What are you complaining about?

You're using alcohol and charm to convince someone to give you information they shouldn't.

And now you're upset that he wants to hit on you? Again - this isn't a "colleague" this isn't her "boss" this isn't anyone she even works with. This guy is a dude she is seducing for information, plying him with alcohol, pretending to be his friend, when all she wants is information from him.

And the she complains when it works

Alright y’all. I’m headed down to the Mall.

I ain’t gonna miss this historic shit show.

Stay tuned. Not gonna lie. My heart rate is up and my stomach is twisted.

Anticipating a deluge of human energy hitting me in about twenty minutes.

Also, no way for me to hide my identity either. Who knows what’s gonna happen.

I didn't know @archillect was a synthetic intelligence. Wow.

This article speculates on how synthetic intelligences may or may not be able to endure fame, especially if their appeal lies in taste making / curation.

h/t @primalpoly

ryanmelsom.com/blog/2016/10/2… As @archillect becomes more famous and engaged by a mass audience rather than niche, her ability to ID interesting trends in visual tastes decreases.

This is a fascinating parallel to how mass culture subsumes subcultures and denudes them through appropriation.

In two years I’ve gone from an anonymous account with 0 followers, to a semi-public figure touring college campuses across the country.

I don’t talk about mindset very often, but I do lead by example.

Set outrageous goals and force yourself to rise to the challenge. I promised I’d write a book even though I’d never done it.

I promised I’d tour the country, even though no one had ever asked me to speak.

And now I’m getting offers to do political consulting…

All by having a vision and working tirelessly towards it.

It was an honor and a privilege to meet @JonHaidt last night. I cite his work heavily in #DemocratToDeplorable. I gave him a copy of the book as he signed my copy of Righteous Mind.

Told him I was speaking at Evergreen. His advice: read How to Win Friends and Influence People. I asked him a tough question: "now that the implicit bias test has been debunked, what does that mean for Righteous Mind's main thesis?"

He said that did in fact have to go back and make some changes to both Righteous Mind and Happiness Hypothesis now that the IAT is bunk.

“I love coaching more than anything else I’ve ever done in my life but thanks to you, I may never be able to do that again in my life.” I was emotional before. But man, I just lost it. I feel his pain. I feel it so hard.

When everyone and everything is the same....

Nothing can be beautiful. If you believe in beauty, you believe in differences, which means you believe in unequal distribution of capabilities, resources, and desires.

Do you believe in beauty?

Remember - all this Kavanaugh drama is to ensure mothers can murder their babies. All this dark energy, all this time and money, all this fighting and assassination -

All this war being waged is to preserve a pregnant mother’s ability to murder her baby.

Most men would be terrified if they really understood the depths of female sexuality. Most of our norms and mores around sex are meant to restrain and obscure female sexuality.

I’m not a scientist but I suspect the root of this behavior comes from human female’s relatively hidden estrus.

Every day you get less than 10k steps...
Every day your resting heart rate is over 80...
Every day you drink alcohol...
Every day you eat too many carbs...
Every day you sleep less than 6 hours...

Your life insurance payout will go down and your premium will go up....or both. This sounds crazy dystopian. But really, its smart financial sense. It rewards the healthy and punishes the unhealthy. Sure in initial phases it will be less accurate that later versions...but the intent here is good.

The healthy subsidize the unhealthy in all insurance.

You have to see your vision when you close your eyes at night. That future you doing something you think is cool and exciting and the right thing to do.

Picture that future you. Soak in his confidence. Listen to what he would say to you.

There is power in that visualization. If we are talking about my future self talking to me he’d probably say something like, “don’t be a pussy. It’s not that hard.”

But you know, you do you. Probably be kinder.

We all can benefit from being kinder to ourselves actually.

Me especially.

At little league this weekend we didn’t see our favorite umpire. So we asked around.

Turned out he died three weeks ago at age 55.

Total shock.

We will miss him.

Be grateful for today people.

You never know when it could be all over. A sad element to this story was that my old co coach and I realized we didn’t know our favorite umpire’s name.

We always greeted each other with hey “coach” and hey “blue” and man hand shake turned bro hug.

I’d known him for five years. But didn’t know his real name.

Absolutely tragic data.

Standardized testing results in DC:

"Only 17 percent of black students in the District scored proficient in math, compared with 68.8 percent of Asian students and 80.1 percent of white students."

1/

washingtonpost.com/local/for-loca… As you know, education is important to me. I worked for ten years in DC to help close this achievement gap. And while our schools had some success, scaling any effort to have city-wide much less nation-wide impact is difficult.

I am truly sad when I see this data.

Elon Musk nailed it on Rogan's podcast.

He said that social media seeks "limbic resonance."

The limbic system is our ancient brain and where the passions reside.

Social media taps directly to that system.

Trump's rhetoric does the same.

Social media multiplied its effect. Trump communicates as if he is entirely Id.

This has limbic resonance.

Social media is a limbic resonance seeking missile.

Trump + Social media = direct connection to our ancient brains.

To understand Trump you must understand this.

It's in my book:

Whatever your views on Roosh V - this should be alarming to all of us.

Amazon has removed all of his books from the marketplace without notice.

I thought Amazon was above this sort of thing until now, but it looks like the tide is turning for the worse. Some of his books have been on there for years.

This is like a digital book burning.

If Amazon follows the same path of YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, there will be nothing left, no platforms remaining.

Everyone has standards.

Everyone should have standards.

Your standards set the tone for your life.

You will be judged by the standards you keep.

This is the trade off.

To be honorable: make these standards clear as soon as possible.

Let people choose whether to stay or not. Here’s how I see it.

My world has rules and expectations.

You do not need to join me.

I open the door, invite you to cross the threshold, and once you do, you operate in my universe.

If you decline, all the power to you.

The choice is yours.

The rules are mine.

Millennials aren't marrying partially because they're poorer, have more debt, and higher employment than previous generations. Some crazy stats from the US Census Bureau:

- Total living in poverty has gone up by 60% since 1980 to 13.5 million

- 41% of men earned less than $30k "Millennials are the first generation in the modern era to have more debt, poverty, and unemployment, as well as lower personal wealth and income, than the two preceding generations at similar life stages."

In a long term relationship, one with trust and care, being “resolution oriented” is one of the best ways to ensure longevity.

It’s not easy - it takes empathy - and that’s a scary word to many.

But a preference for resolution over conflict makes relationships work long term. Every relationship needs a tool box.

Because relationships take work and tinkering and need on the fly repairs.

What tools are you bringing to your marriage or relationship?

Adopting a mindset of resolution over conflict is one of the most important ones.
