I could have guessed #1, but #2 surprises me.
It's heartening to see a moose be a good pedestrian.
If you don't know what noodling is, spend 3.5 minutes with the very funny Kathleen Madigan and find out.
$435 at #1, Noma. Sorry, it would be completely wasted on me.
INXS at the peak of their form, live from Wembley, 1991.
One heck of a story if you don't--as I didn't--know anything about the Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins model in western orange.
The Babylon Bee, uncomfortably close to the truth.
I had thought the "Blue Zones" research was questionable. Now I'm sure it is.
Folks, that is one big pumpkin.
So is this 2520-pound one in Wisconsin even though it was disqualified. Said the grower: "It happens. There’s no crying in pumpkin growing."
One of the interesting stories about the making of The Godfather.
I note once again that some of modern cosmology is . . . weird.
See also "Why simplicity works":
In my latest book, I propose a radical, if speculative, solution for why the Universe might in fact be as simple as it’s possible to be. Its starting point is the remarkable theory of cosmological natural selection (CNS) proposed by the physicist Lee Smolin. CNS proposes that, just like living creatures, universes have evolved through a cosmological process, analogous to natural selection.

I don't like the gambling stocks--they seem too risky to me--but I've done well with other "sin" stocks..
7.5 minutes of some of how Charlie Munger does what he does.

It's a little difficult to believe that one person could exert so much influence, but it's the CCP, so I suppose almost anything is possible.
"The prevalence of remote learning in schools educating our most vulnerable students was no accident."
I've got just one question: where the heck are all the conservative billionaires? Maybe they should decrease funding to think tanks and devote more money to winning elections.

Sad to see my former employer get caught up in the current goofiness.
Article argues it may well be another "psychogenic" illness. (Which, note, does not mean it is all in their heads. The symptoms are very much real. But psychogenic refers to the origin of the symptoms.)
They've pissed around just about long enough: how about some serious progress on a cure?
Sounds like a good target for reform:
Fifty years since NEPA was signed into law, the process has become a bureaucratic nightmare. The latest data show that completing an EIS takes four and a half years, on average. One-quarter of the statements take upward of six years. Some projects drag on even longer: the approval process for a 12-mile expansion of Interstate 70 in Denver took 13 years to complete, with a final impact statement running 8,951 pages (not including an additional 7,307 pages of appendices).

Consistent with Newmark's Third Law: if something screwy is happening, ask if government is involved.
Impressive when you see them listed all together like this.
6.5 minute video making the secondary point that as a society we are really, really rich. I used the anecdote about Nathan Rothschild in one of my classes. I think it is dramatic as hell.
(But I object to the interpretation of the Pew poll. The video assumes the question pertains just to economic well being. It could well have been interpreted by respondents much more broadly to include such things as the current awful cultural conflict.)
Unsurprising: macroeconomics is difficult.
Not that it was difficult to do.
Seems to be the same as babies: be careful intruding on their space, at least in the beginning.
