The Psychology of Money · Collaborative Fund
“Was it really necessary to tell her that if you spend money on things, you will end up with the things and not the money?”

You can laugh. But the truth is, yes, people need to be told that. When most people say they want to be a millionaire, what they really mean is “I want to spend a million dollars,” which is literally the opposite of being a millionaire. This is especially true for young people.

A key use of wealth is using it to control your time and providing you with options...

NYC's Subway Should Be Full of Hoverboards Instead - The Atlantic
this sounds like a nightmarish hellscape and thinking back to the volume analysis for the hyperloop, also doesn't even sound plausible. also, way to penalize people without flexible schedules, ie the poorest and worst paid.

Researchers wonder what it means when you keep your phone out without using it - MIT Technology Review

women are less likely to have functional pockets, so more likely to need to hold things in their hands when making short trips places. I'd like to see how 'phone holding' compared to a) holding other objects and b) the presence of a bag or purse.

Giving Myself A Dress Code Changed My Dang Life
Even though my style is super casual, the color palette and abundance of white makes it look polished — something that’s not insignificant as I navigate the world as a woman of color. Do my white jeans alone keep me from getting harassed by the cops? No. But my overall look reads as middle class, relatively conservative — I’m basically riffing on the aspirational clothes of my youth; pretty much everything I wear would be completely at home on a white yuppie in the late 80s/early 90s — and super non-threatening. This isn’t the main reason why I’ve chosen these clothes — I genuinely just really like them, and bold prints/colors are deeply not me — but I’m not going to pretend that they don’t help me literally and figuratively move through the world more easily.

Becoming Ugly
I’m writing in a circle that keeps leading me back to the same questions: How do I become ugly to these people? How do I offend their sensibilities with my very existence? But the work provides no answers—just more of the angry bile that I first tasted in the moments before I punched Tom at 14 and has since tinged my mouth again and again. I want to spit it everywhere and I want it to stain.
