What I learned this week

  • "Oysters wrapped in bacon are easier to prepare in your conventional oven." - Owner's Manual MW1337SB

  • According to Freakonomics radio, there are only two ways that parents can affect the long-term happiness or success of their children: being nice and not smoking. Everything else, like private lessons, organized sports, or tutoring are unimportant. 

  • The richest man in the world says, "When you live for others' opinions, you are dead. I don't want to live thinking about how I'll be remembered."

  • The man who developed human-powered flight did so to collect prize-money so that he could repay a loan. 

  • The all-time record high of Alert, Canada, the world's northernmost permanently occupied settlement, is 68 degrees fahrenheit.
