17:12 How could we encourage dog owners to clean up after their dogs?

I am an International Graduate student in Germany and would like to add something to what Dan already suggested.

Here in Germany, we don't jump red lights even if the road is completely empty (well, some do but that's more an exception than a norm). Even the pedestrians respect red lights and it's a perfect mechanical system where 'trust' in the system ensures lower fatalities. For this to work, however, they have, knowingly or unknowingly made this a habit and there are several checks in place. For e.g, if you as an unsuspecting foreigner try to cross the road on a red light, you might get yelled at! No, you are not yelled at because you are a stupid foreigner, but because you are "inspiring" others and specially the kids to jump and hence breaking the chain.

I think Germans understand the power of good habits and no wonder they have a lot of rules and regulations which makes the society extremely efficient and functional. Despite the evils of bureaucratic overhead, I think, rationality (more than many other countries) rules this part of the Globe.

As a free sprited American I am very grateful, in lots of ways, for my rule-bound German siblings.  Their groundedness makes my soaring imaginings possible.  While flitting merrily from notion to muse folks like me can be inspired to dream and propose things they, the organized can manufacture and distribute at a profit.  Works for me!

What does it look like to ride a 15 foot tall bicycle through the streets of Los Angeles? Check out this amazing video. Mad props to the rider for barely clearing the highway underpass and for the dismount at the end of a pier (not to be missed – watch 'til the end).

Are we irrational when it comes to the idea of Success? Do many average Joe's succeed because they went to MIT and many bright people settle for less because they didn't make it to Harvard? How does loss aversion alter the way our careers take shape?

A, I remember that wrote about it 3 years ago - http://redcatco.com/blog/marketing/dance-your-way-to-a-crowd/ - the guy in the video actually got in touch and we talked. Ah, the days before viral videos were marketing :). I've done a psychology degree since I wrote that post. It looks quite different in the light of that and Dan's work.

The hacks are part show-off, part anarchy, part sticking it to the man.
