  1. Things I wish my therapist would say to me but she never does. “I’m not supposed to give advice but you should really think about doing stand-up comedy or something. It just seems unfair to humanity that I’m the only one who gets to enjoy your effortless wit.” 🙋🏼‍♂️
  2. What I learned eating at 8,000 Chinese restaurants in the US.
  3. What America's supply-chain backlog looks like up close. An incredible video, and the factoids are eye-opening. I learned a ton.
  4. Here's why the Coke at McDonald's is better than anywhere else. I've been certain of this since I was a kid, and to this day, if I'm going to have a Coke, I seek out a McDonald's. Feeling fully validated today. 🤪
  5. Things we did 15 years ago that seem weird today in retrospect.
  6. Why does coffee make me poop?. "That drinking a cup of coffee can stimulate the opposite end of the gastrointestinal tract within minutes means it’s probably going through the gut-brain axis. That is, the arrival of coffee in the stomach sends a message to the brain, which then stimulates the colon to say, ‘Well, we’d better empty out, because things are coming downstream.’ [...] Researchers have hypothesized that coffee’s gut-brain messaging is likely caused by one or more of coffee’s many chemicals, and perhaps mediated by some of our own hormones that play important roles in the digestive process, like gastrin or cholecystokinin — both of which can spike after coffee drinking."
