I think Steve Keil accurately describes a problem that exists not just in Bulgaria, but in all industrialized countries. That problem is that we discourage “play”. Discouraging play is an ill byproduct of cultures that are obsessed with numbers, measurement, and Taylorism. America is just as, if not more so, guilty of promoting this type of culture as anywhere else.

Will you soon need a Ph. D to become a janitor? An interesting article on credentials inflation.

You have an exceptional mind, so I'm pretty sure that whatever you decide, you'll make your mark---and by the way, you do it every time you write a review or post an aphorism---and it is fun, but more importantly, informative and enlightening to watch!

A humorous look at how "We think we are better than average at not being biased in thinking that we're better than average."

A nice graduation speech about why you shouldn't "work".

According to Charles Foster, publishing pointless papers in academic journals is unethical. Do you agree?
Publishing pointless papers is unethical. There are four reasons: (a) It’s a form of plagiarism to translate old thoughts into new language and pass off the translated thoughts as one’s own. The very ...

This place has the best fish and chips I've had in Denver. The beer selection is solid too. As for the atmosphere, it's a great place to watch a soccer game.

Marczyk is an upscale neighborhood grocer (warning: you'll definitely pay a premium to shop here) with a very nice selection of hard-to-find artisanal products. It's a great place to pick up a quick lunch or dinner. You can't go wrong with any of their sandwiches and their daily rotating soup selection is fantastic. My hope is that one day they will sell grass-fed meat, like Whole Foods currently does.

Moes is the best BBQ joint you'll find in Summit County.

To put it simply, this is the best Texas-style BBQ I've ever had within the Austin city limits. The atmosphere and live music are the perfect accouterments to the Texas BBQ experience. Next time I'm in Austin, I will be back.

I recently moved into the Jefferson Park area and was delighted to discover this neighborhood coffee shop. The space has an industrial chic feel to it. The staff is very friendly and, to top it off, they serve Denver's own Kaladi Brothers Coffee.

If you live in Denver and haven't been to Star Kitchen on a Sunday morning for dim sum, you're missing out on an amazing culinary and cultural experience. What can I say? My multiple visits here have been simply fantastic. Some other reviewers have mentioned this as well, but I'll forewarn you that once you sit down a slew of food will roll by your table and you're liable to have a hard time understanding some of the servers. Don't worry, the people that work at the restaurant are very friendly and will show you what they are serving too. Anyway, virtually everything I've tried was really good, but I'd recommend being picky because there are many things that looked amazing and you fill up quickly. Oh, by the way, the dinner is amazing here too. There are far too many tasty things to list here, but try the 2-for-1 house special lobster -- you won't be disappointed.

One of my favorite foods is bacon. To my delight, then, I discovered that there is a restaurant called "Bacon" in Austin. During my most recent visit I went to Bacon, not once, but twice. Yep, it's that good. One of my visits was for happy hour. Amongst other deals, they have $2 Imperials which brings the "pura vida" spirit of Costa Rica to the heart of downtown Austin. The chicken BLT is fantastic and if you get a salad I recommend the bacon vinaigrette dressing. It almost goes without saying, but I think should be mandatory that you get a side of bacon with your meal too. Anyway, the staff is super friendly, the food is tasty, and they have a nice outdoor (and mostly shaded) seating area.
