  1. Via MR, advice from Patrick Collison. The whole thing is worth reading, but I would ask you to consider this, in particular:

    More broadly, nobody is going to teach you to think for yourself. A large fraction of what people around you believe is mistaken. Internalize this and practice coming up with your own worldview. The correlation between it and those around you shouldn’t be too strong unless you think you were especially lucky in your initial conditions.

  2. If one makes the (not unreasonable) assumption that every day ought to be beer day
  3. TTLITM #1 (TTLITM Explainer here)
  4. Feminism and economists.
