    In 1868, visiting Scotsman David Macrae was astonished to see Chicago transforming itself — dozens of buildings were transplanted to the suburbs, and hotels weighing hundreds of tons were raised on jackscrews. In this week’s episode of the Futility Closet podcast we’ll follow the city’s astounding 20-year effort to rid itself of sewage and disease.

    We’ll also learn how a bear almost started World War III and puzzle over the importance of a ringing phone.

  2. MaxFunCon: Merlin Mann on Doing Creative Work; The Sound of Young America | Maximum Fun

    He doesn’t fully grasp what the seduction community is about, but there is truth in what he says.

    For example, the Mystery Method fully deserves to be crapped upon and one can empathize with Merlin even if one doesn’t agree with him wholesale.

    He’s an insightful guy, if you cut him some slack on this topic.

    The "community" can handle it, really.

    And let’s be honest: most guys in the "community" are bumbling fools who don’t understand the first thing about real self-improvement—even if there are exceptions.

    Anyway, Merlin’s thesis remains valid.

    It doesn’t require tearing down others; he just chose to dismantle his own (somewhat true) concept of the "community" to illustrate what to do better.

    That’s what we should all be focusing on anyway: how can I do better?

    How can you?

  7. 015: Apple Kool-Aid and the Mongoose with John Siracusa

    John Siracusa made the Hypercritical podcast which is one of my all time favorites. He is also a gamer that somehow had fun with the Turok: Dinosaur Hunter series on the N64. He is currently part of the truly awesome Accidental Tech Podcast which he records with Marco Arment and nobody else.

    We somehow recorded a little episode of Neutral at the end.
