Why Can't the World's Greatest Scientists Solve the Mystery of Consciousness?

Interesting read for the scientifically minded, probably an infuriating read for the philosophically and / or religiously minded.
The long read: Philosophers and scientists have been at war for decades over the question of what makes human beings more than complex robots

Not Cool, #Finland ! $38 for a Club Sammich?

Noel Gallagher Continues to Be the Best

Q: Do you think of the album as a whole instead of singles?

A: I’m afraid I’ll always be an album artist. That’s just the way I was brought up. Most of the big acts today, they’re not known for their albums, they’re known for their singles. The music of let’s say Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Beyoncé, fucking Christina Aguilera, all that pop stuff, you’re not meant to listen to 11 songs like that in a row on an album. Quite frankly, you’d commit suicide, wouldn’t you? You’re only supposed to listen to one song at a time in the car on the way to the fucking supermarket.
Noel Gallagher has released a new album, Chasing Yesterday, which means there’s a media onslaught of witty commentary courtesy of the sometime songwriting force behind Oasis. The interviews are to promote Chasing Yesterday, but these days, the elder Gallagher garners more interest for his banter tha

Other Languages Are Hilarious

But we're all trying to communicate the same thing. Some of my favorite folk sayings from this list:

Japanese:
Literal translation: “To wear a cat on one’s head.”
What it means: “You’re hiding your claws and pretending to be a nice, harmless person.”

Swedish:
Literal translation: “To slide in on a shrimp sandwich.”
What it means: “It refers to somebody who didn’t have to work to get where they are.”

The Lee Kuan Yew Conundrum

Americans may not like autocratic government, but Singapore has beat the pants of the U.S. across a broad set of measures.
Singapore's late leader governed undemocratically but effectively. Which raises a question: What is the ultimate purpose of government?

The 4 Horsemen: Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google

Hilarious, data-heavy summary of these 4 companies, and how they're indicative of worldwide trends. Favorite quote:

"Luxury is in the business of procreation.

"Tesla is not an environmental car. It's an attempt to tell people that you can afford a $120K car.

"The core axiom of evolution is that men paying $120K for cars that can go 160 miles per hour in domains where you can only go 55 makes no sense. 

"Women will continue to pay $600 for ergonomically impossible shoes to try and solicit inbound offers from those same men."

Moore's Law & Exponential Progress

Lots of great predictions on how exponential growth will affect our lives in the 2020s, 2030s, and 2040s.
Ray Kurzweil’s 110 year version of Moore’s Law some perfectly reasonable mind-blowing predictions for the future ahead.
