- The new name-dropping. Not bad, New Republic.
- Funny profound Amazon reviews of Sim City 5. “It’s astonishing how the same company can take [a] game concept and work on it for 10 years, and have [the result] be so much worse than what came before.” Also: “$60 for a game you can’t play is brilliant.” Also: “You have to wait in line for your own single-player game. YOU HAVE TO WAIT TO PLAY BY YOURSELF!! This is absurd.”
- Obesity in Mexico (Wikipedia). “There was discussion on putting a 5 percent tax on soft drinks; it was voted against because it was thought to be unfair to the poor when it is more expensive to buy water.”
- Intermittent fasting diet partly based on self-experimentation
