Spoiler: yes.
How do the benefits of exercise compare to the harm from pollution?

I cycle in rush hour traffic yet can still smell a smoker as I pass. I cycle over 3000 miles a year along one of Cardiff's busiest roads (Newport Road) and the only accident I've had in 16 years was 10 years ago on a quieter road intersection, due to some idiot rushing away from a Give Way line. Cycling on the roads is safer than the pavement too, you just have to actually believe it and follow the Highway Code (and some extra cycle guidelines) :)

The ole Us vs Them. Human nature's desire to peer with other people purely to engage with their 'enemies' even over the most unnecessary things like phone ownership or dietary preferences. I can't stand it even though I'm sometimes guilty of it. But it's the people that constantly feel a desire to group themselves with others in order to finger point is what irks me the most. There are too many of these people! It surely has to be down to some kind of overall feelings of inferiority.

'Sharing links that mock a caricature of the Other Side isn’t signaling that we’re somehow more informed. It signals that we’d rather be smug assholes than consider alternative views. It signals that we’d much rather show our friends that we’re like them'.
I do seem to differ a bit here where I'm often a smug asshole for sharing alternative views. I often annoy my friends, family and the people I follow for not buying into their views.. somewhat playing the devil's advocate maybe too often. I don't know what that says about me.

Worth a read.

"The only way to beat the attention economy is to opt out of it. This is no longer about wasting time on Pokemon Go or refreshing Facebook 12 times a day. It’s no longer about email killing productivity at work or kids not being able to pay attention at school. It’s now creeping into our political system, and I fear there could be irreparable damage done to it."
By nearly every objective measure, the world is a better place than it has ever been in modern history. So why doesn't it feel that way?

"'I called her back,' Burks said. 'I said, "If you hang up on me again, I will put your son’s obituary in your hometown newspaper and I will list his cause of death." Then I had her attention.'"

And, get this, she already owned a cemetery.

Great food and very good service. The dinner menu rotates through different dishes, usually upscale British dishes with a few extras. Very reasonable prices.
