BFL #022 -- Clairvoyant Sitcom Writers; Ambient Mothers Day Shopping

Never Too Small .. For a little while now I have been hanging out for each new episode of Never Too Small, a YouTube series that explores really well designed tiny houses. When I see a house has been featured I immediately click. If you haven't been following their series already you absolutely should! Mansfield Tiny Home | Youtube -- ...

B5L #021 -- Smarter than the average hybrid-working, white-hat, late-sleeping productivity-focused, bear

-- Daniel Kazinsky.. A sad story to begin with. A very impressive gentleman named Daniel Kazinsky died. What first caught my attention was that he died from keto-acidosis, which is the same condition that sent me to hospital a few years ago. But then what kept my attention was the incredible work he did throughout his life to improve t...

B5L #020 -- Artistic Rich People With Side-Families and Side-Hustles

— I may not know art, but I know what I like.. Some people are talented. I am not one of those people. But if I was, I’d like to think I’d have a sense of humour about it. Like this painter, who has decorated his house with painted memes on canvas. Very classy. Artist’s House Full of Painted Memes (via /r/damnthatsinteresting) — Rich p...

B5L #019 -- Nora's Solution, Stoicism, FU Money, and a Cure to the Imposter Syndrome

--- A more palatable solution to the Trolley Problem Back in B5L007 I described the Trolley Problem, and linked to young Nicholas' creative solution to that moral quandary. Well, three years after that video was filmed, the same parent recorded the crafty solution presented by Nicholas' sister, Nora. It's not quite as funny but still c...

B5L #018 -- Mentors, Mailoji, and magenta mini-Monets

— Ahead of his time This has made me laugh nearly every time I come back to it. Now we all half expect children or pets or front-door-knockers or break-and-enterers to walk through the background of our vidcons. This man was truly ahead of his time. Happy 4 year anniversary to the best interview of all time — 🚀 I love me a good domain ...

B5L #017 -- a Privacy Pledge; Delete LinkedIn; Thinking on Paper About Organised Lightning

— A Shift for Five Links Because I’m a rampant Apple Fanboi, every once in a while I like to visit John Gruber’s Daring Fireball. I’m very jealous of what he has created with Daring Fireball. It’s clean and crisp — completely text only — and has a massive following, which means he can keep it the way he wants it rather than chasing com...

B5L #016 -- Leather and Less Friends; This Free-Trade Rice is Making Me Thirsty

— Leather Fetish Ok. To begin with, a confession. Come closer. Real talk right now. Let’s get personal. I’ve developed a bit of a thing. It’s not a weird thing. Lots of people do it. Chill. You see, I’ve picked up a bit of a thing for leather. Yes, traditional leather. Animal hide stuff. The look of it. The sound of it. Not the touch o...

B5L #015 -- Career Choices, Hustlin’ and Gettin’ Squeezed

— To Begin, Let’s Question Everything Easily the most popular link I’ve included in these first 15 issues has been the wonderful ‘momento mori’ style article by Wait But Why, linked to in Issue #004. In fact, after I linked to that seven year old article, another much more popular newsletter also linked to it. I’m not saying they copie...

B5L #014 -- Unions, Stacks, Trends, Tips, and Out-of-Offices

— Unfortunately I’ve started my 2021 in a bit of a career-funk. It’s probably normal for the beginning of a new year, and given how woeful 2020 was I’m giving myself a pass for any lack of optimism and enthusiasm for the months ahead. But my bad mood has led me to some great resources for the start-of-the-year Monday-itis that you too ...

B5L #013 -- Unbelievable, but then at the same time sadly believable

— What’s Shakin’, Bacon? A heartwarming link to get us started into 2021! An American big-brother named Noah Tingle has been wearing a different novelty costume to welcome his little-brother off the school bus each afternoon since August last year. It’s adorable. “"Knowing I’m going to college next year and won’t see him on a daily bas...
