1) Delusional and Very very busy. I wish I can start everyday after reading this.

“I once knew a woman who interned at a magazine where she wasn’t allowed to take lunch hours out, lest she be urgently needed for some reason. This was an entertainment magazine whose raison d’être was obviated when “menu” buttons appeared on remotes, so it’s hard to see this pretense of indispensability as anything other than a form of institutional self-delusion.”

2) And this image to go with it.

3) Good old travelling salesmen problem, with real twists.

“the focal point of a larger debate on the nature of complexity and possible limits to human knowledge.”

4) Beautiful read on how to save in a balanced manner in life. My father is still afraid of spending a lot of money, while I do not really keep track of how much I spend.

5) How to stay clean in the face of rampant corruption? Something for every Indian who wants to live clean in a chaotic society.

“A number of riders, including some of the most promising talent the U.S. had to offer, chose not to dope when they very easily could have. They didn’t all make it to the very top of the international peloton. In fact, none of them did. But they did have their successes, and they rode clean—an antidote to the no-choice narrative.”
