This is a fantastic book. It's very counterintuitive, you want to fight its main arguments at every step, but you can't argue with data. We do live in a much better (albeit imperfect) world these days.

This book is like a Tarantino movie: it's pretty clear what he's saying, but the means to convey it are incredibly low-brow. Like building a monument out of bog detritus. There are far better ways. Anyway, it has its moments of brilliance, like the wave speech, or the taco joint scene.

Notifications on your wrist? Not having to pull the phone out of your pocket every time someone is messaging you? Fantastic idea. Battery life is pretty good too.
Shouldn't a watch built for our times do more than just tell you the time? #moto360 #choosechoice

"Macbeth's self-justifications were feeble - and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too. The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare's evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology." - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Yesterday I was reading about the 1930s and the Weimar Republic. Then today, I saw this. I think it's called political deja-vu. Huge super-power, gets crushed, has economic troubles, then public figures are starting to get shot in public places. And then a guy gets up on a soapbox, talking about dreams of past glory. Sounds familiar, eh?
An old friend recounted hearing the former deputy prime minister tell of dangerous new research on Russian involvement in the Ukraine conflict.

Thumbs up review for West Coast Archery. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. He will work with you to make sure you get what you want. The store has a wide range of items in stock - arrows, releases, broadheads, basically everything you need. They also have a big shooting range, nice looking, big, bright and clean, where you can rent a lane and shoot some arrows. Or you can take lessons. They also do leagues, check the website for the schedule. I've purchased here compound bows for myself and my kids, those models were very new (production had just started), so they didn't have them in stock. They placed orders with the manufacturers and the items arrived quickly. If you live in the Bay Area, this is one of your best options for an archery pro shop. 5/5 stars.

Mom and pop motel. From outside looks just okay. But the rooms are awesome! Very very clean. New furniture, very nice and comfortable, I almost felt spoiled. Large and clean bathroom, with bathtub. Microwave, A/C, fridge, TV and Internet. The price was better than the Big Name hotel at the other end of town. The owners are nice people, very helpful. Highly recommended; this is where I'll stay again when I'm in the area.
