A Stanford psychologist on the art of avoiding assholes - Vox
Nice way of calling someone an asshole:

»Sean Illing:
Well, I’m not going to call the president an asshole here, but I will say that he’s checking all the asshole boxes you’ve set forth in this book.

Robert Sutton:
Yeah, I won't call him one either, but I agree with your assessment.«

SUPERLOON: Flos floor lamp model
Probably the first time I saw a LED lamp and thought »oh that’s nice bright light«.

At least you’ll get something when paying north of €3500 for a lamp.

Reflects my impression that in the past decade – despite not (consciously) changing what I eat – the volume of trash I need to carry out seems to have increased. Unfortunately the article lacks an explanation why this is happening.
