Thanks for the note, I actually adopted it and left it 2 years ago. I re-adopted it about a year ago and I couldn't agree with you more.

What I think is quite humorous is to study the higher income folks at these so called privliges of the wealthy as they fall asleep. They are paying to be seen there not to see the event.

It seems to me that self-deprecation is an unforutnate and misguided attempt at humility. I don't think there is anything wrong with suggesting I am skilled at something. The added spice like "I'm not the best in the world.." that creeps in is usually a product of my conditioning. Was it too boastful for Jesus to say "I am the way, the truth and the light"? I don't think so, because for me, we all are. Assuming he said it, he didn't need to follow it up with, "...but that's just me and you know me, I think I'm some kind of savior or something, I mean I'm speaking like I actually know something!" ha! I don't take myself too seriously which helps.

Thanks for posting this Ben, particularly the video from Tucker Carlson (who if you haven't seen it had one of the most interesting live interactions I've ever seen with Jon Stewart). I also noticed Tucker ditched the bowtie. I wonder if he thinks that given the nature of her profession if perhaps juries or others should consider anything said by a CEO these days to be tainted given the sultry acts of a few.... It's a super clear example of exactly how divided our society is.

Singular focus on anything is challenging. Try just walking down the street. The BB + driving in any situation just feels downright dangerous.
Agreed, but I guess it's particuarly vexing to be so publicly incongruent.

Well, I suppose it isn't the first time we've had an actor for a governor (see Ronald Reagan). Your potty mouth is excused of course. Brunch was great. I asked Zoe what she ordered and she looked at me with her eyes wide open and said: "I ordered plain scrambled eggs, not too hot." She got that and ate them all!!
I'm interested to know whether that is an example of auto-pilot or consistency. I will be on full "auto-pilot" alert Wednesday at lunch.

You're welcome Naomi, I am so glad I was able to share it with you. You are just like Sakai and Kevin, all about love, and I'm down with that my friend.
You're right, fyi, on the AOL analogy (and they made an AWFUL lot of money doing it that way). What I would prefer not to see is the day job guy inventing delicious and then someone just taking it and making money like the AOL's. It just seems that the developers, somehow should be organizing themselves. Ultimately, I suppose all their innovation is just going to be copied and I suppose they are cool with that.

Thanks. Honesty is where it is at...

Thanks Ben. The quality and importance of ideas, knowledge, actions, words, thoughts, etc. seem to be a matter of frame of reference. And, that's where division begins that will ultimately lead to conflict. I think about 9/11 and consider that while one person in America sees it as a terrible idea based on faulty knowledge done by an evil person. The people hijacking the planes thought the idea was awesome (both in intent and execution) based on divine knowledge carried out by a hero. I guess energy of any act, thought, word, etc. is neutral. I can choose whether or not I want to make it mean something.

Laughter (as long as it's not divisive) is the ultimate connector. A rather unusual take on it (and quite hilarious) was Ricky Gervais in The Office whose character was giving a motivational speech and mentioned the power of laughter. He started laughing and tried to get others to join, didn't work and it was priceless. BTW, none of this really matters B.

I agree with what you are saying. I just wonder sometimes if great ideas somehow become a cage.
