Check out my bestselling book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. .
Yesterday I finished the last Russian tape in my quest to learn every language. I've now completed three months of German, one of Arabic, and three of Russian. I accidentally missed one day due to food poisoning, but not counting that I've stuck with this now for 210 days in a row. My plan is to continue for approximately 870 more days, at which time I will have 27 languages down. Currently I have eight, which are English, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, Romanian, German, Arabic, and now Russian.
Russian was by far the hardest language I've ever tried to learn. I don't think it's even close. I feel about half as prepared in Russian as I felt with German, which was the same length of time. If I went to Germany, even having done the tapes four months ago, I think I could get along decently. If I was in Russia tomorrow, I think I'd have a pretty rough time.
I also didn't really like Russian very much. It felt cumbersome in the same way Latin does, requiring so much agreement between various parts of speech. I never felt like I got a great handle on all of the distinct sounds that words are made up of.
People have questioned the utility of trying to learn all of the languages as I'm doing now. Frankly, I question it, too, sometimes. I know that I won't remember it all. My Arabic has withered to the barest of understanding. I have trouble remembering some simple words in Romanian.
I'm mainly learning all of these languages just to see what will happen. Will significant exposure to 27 languages strengthen universal lingual pathways in my brain? Will knowledge of these languages hide in the recesses of my brain, ready to be activated as soon as I go to their countries and refresh my memory?
For any of you interested in the Nau M2 Hoodie (Tynan featured it in his 2012 Gear Post - Zen Edition), it's currently for sale on The Clymb.
When I purchased a bunch of gear in July 2013, I looked all over for the Nau M2, and couldn't find it anywhere. Now, it's on sale at 40 percent off retail.
I'd act fast if you want it, as deals tend to go quick on The Clymb.
Any good finds/new products for wool jeans? I check periodically and recently found these (http://www.howies.us.com/woolim-wool-jeans-indigo.html) but they're a blend and only 40% wool. Are the Versace jeans a blend as well or are they 100% wool?
I finished your book on habits recently and gained an immense amount from it. Though, one thing that I felt was lacking was a discussion on what is to me the most danger to the livelihood of new habits: The weekends.
I have a solid list of triggers that I go through on weekdays that 95% of the time gives me good results and a near 100% completion of all habits. The triggers are highly tied to the fact that I come to the office to work every morning.
On the weekends I lose all of these triggers, and I'm lucky if I even get out of bed on time. My habit tracking highly reflects this truth.
I realize you don't have weekends because you work from home and keep a mostly constant schedule, but to the average 9-5er this problem is the equivalent habit-buster to having to travel every single weekend. It throws you in a chaotic situation where your triggers aren't around to help.
But it's not really simple to use to make a website or operating systems, you need to know a lot of code!
Most people use Wordpress for the "simple way" to use /var, i recommend SETT for the best way to use /var, also breaking the 4th wall is strange to me considering your reading this on SETT.
1234567126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.17.18.19----19 losing bets in a row can happen. Pretty unusual, but it has happened to me. Loss only $145. Playing Blackjack, roulette, Baccarat, any even money game, I can recover from this loss. Starting bankroll must be 1000 times minimum bet. You can try my system on 10 cent games where you only need a starting balance of $100. I f you need more details of my method email me at clicktocontact email@example.com
Hey guys, if you find a bug in SETT, reply to this with the info. You can embed screenshots if necessary or paste error messages. If you've experienced a bug that someone else has already reported, you can vote it up so that we know it's more important.
This seems kind of hard to nail down to get to a fair price for a used Rialta. Are these in the Bluebook? I tried finding comparable sales on RV websites or ebay completed/sold listings, but it's kind of hit or miss depending on milage, model, and year. I'm in the market and just wanted to make sure I'm not way overpaying. I've seen the 2000's and up models around 20k-35k with mostly the 2004 or 2005's fetching that upperward value...
Does anyone know what kind of price range would a 2002 FD (fullbed or even the twin bed model) go for with ~30k miles?
Any insight is appreciated...Thanks!
I love hanging out on my deck in the evenings. Unfortunately, the last few years these Stink Bugs come by the millions in the Fall. They seem to get worse every year. They look like ancient predator flying creatures. The good thing is they don't bite or hurt humans. They do eat a lot of vegetation, and they are super annoying.
Oops. My first time loading an image, and it is sideways. Sorry.
Well, anyway, I bought this Stink Bug trap online just to try something out because spraying lots of chemicals is nasty and unhealthy. It is actually very entertaining to watch this thing at night time because the bugs cannot resist it. They are attracted to the bright light, and then go inside the holes and get stuck in a gooey glue.
I wish I had invented it. It seems like a super simple device, but somebody put a whole lot of thought into catching these stink bugs...and I'm a little happier since the bugs aren't clamoring at my door trying to get inside.
At least one reader bought this (amazing) laptop on my recommendation and wants to install Linux on it. It took me a while to figure out how to get it to work, so I'm sharing the method here. I'm hoping that people who know more about Linux than I do will find this and figure out how to make the battery life better.
To install Linux on the NEC LaVie:
1. Buy a USB->Ethernet adapter. I used the one that came with my Asus UX21A, so I imagine any will work.
2. Turn off UEFI in the BIOS.
2. Download the Network installer from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads
