Unrequested Update: November

Reading
The Dice Man by ‘Luke Rhinehart’ (again)
A Year of Living Biblically by AJ Jacobs
The Knowledge by Lewis Dartnell
Continuing to slug away at Alan Moore’s Voice of the Fire.
Have finished (and recommend) The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday

Watching
Euroleague basketball as a poor replacement for the NBA
How It’s Made, a show about—incredibly—how things are made. Did you know bus seats are essentially knife-proof?
Brain Games, as I have a man-crush on its host Jason Silva

Playing
Hitman: Absolution, in short sessions (not the ideal way to play a Hitman game)
And still inching through Half-Life 2

Else
Wellness – November is No Chocolate or Fizzy Drinks Six Days a Week Month. Not the catchiest of names, I know. After the first week I felt healthier. Since then I haven’t noticed a difference, and I wonder if what I felt initially was a placebo effect. I’m also doing a bit more mobility work (following the Leopard King’s instructions), which is working to combat the effects of sitting at a desk all day.

I’m intrigued by big idea people at the moment: Elon Musk trying to colonise Mars. Kevin Kelly wants to bring back the mammoth. Tony Robbins is trying to provide 100 million meals for the poor. 100 million.
