Fireside Chat About Happiness – Dennis Prager [YouTube video]

29¼ minutes – published Dec 27, 2018

A definite must watch if you want to be happier.

Some Excerpts

You’re not going to have a happy life unless you make a happy life. It’s all on you. Life doesn’t supply these things—we supply these things for ourselves.

Expectations unfulfilled lead to unhappiness.

People think that ‘happy’ comes to them.

Jordan Peterson Interrogated by Helen Lewis | British GQ [YouTube video]

1 hr 42 mins – Published Oct 30, 2018

Jordan speaks with an EXTREMELY ideologically driven woman. She epitomizes everything a conservative is against. Hard-core feminist. Anti-capitalist. Above all she hates the patriarchy.

Excerpt

(talking about the over-liberalization of college and universities nowadays)

[Jordan] Twenty-year-olds don’t have that much power, but they’re not twenty forever. Ten years later they’re thirty. Twenty years later they’re forty. And whatever happens in the university happens everywhere five years later.

[Helen] And very, very sadly for people in my politics—left-wing politics—what happens to people as they get older is that traditionally they got more conservative.

Can you solve “The Bridge Riddle?” [YouTube / TED-Ed Riddle]

3⅚ minutes long – pause at 2:00

I gave up because it looked impossible. It is possible though.

This riddle’s solution is similar to the following one, the River Crossing Riddle. In both cases you seem to have to take back some of the progress you have made to finish the crossing task.
