Monday's Child is Full of Links



1.  My closet is in the cloud.

2.  Divorce in the UK. Deciders, not sliders.

3.  Calling out Chelsea.

4.  If you're worried about stocks, buy a house.

5.  Dem candidates on housing.

6. I understand that AirBnb presents regulatory challenges. But this dumb sh*t is clearly not the way to go.

7.  On a "national divorce."

8.  How a "foreign correspondent" might cover the scandal on US college admissions.

9. Instagram: Hive of conspiracy theorists?

10. Did capitalism save Sweden?

11.  Dune.

12.  Is capitalism sustainable?

13.  Little tiny baby fox puppies.

14.  This is from May 2017. But the wall STILL won't work.

15. The best argument for capitalism is the grocery store. It seems mundane, but it's pretty great.

16. A panda trying to get into a hammock.

17. Witch Windows....

18. Clearly, I live in a bubble. Had never heard of Scruff. Reducing all sorts of transaction costs.

19.  The end of significance.

20.  The Electoral College is just federalism.

21.  Zoning and "political capitalism."

22.  Mother Russia.

23.  Guy writes article where the tl;dr is "If you are an idiot like I am, you should drop FB."

24.  Escaped Wallaby Walkabout would be a great name for a band.

25.  The EC is okay, but it's not worth defending at all costs. It is, in fact, an anachronism.

26.  In Tomorrow 3.0 I talk about "saltation" as an alternative to separation. But it's not really happening.

27. How many chuggas before the first choo?

Regarding #2 about marriage. I'm not sure that the explanation given supports the idea that men are behaving less badly. If, as the article says, that social pressure to marry becomes less, I'd guess that the mean would be "bad" in marriage are not getting married in the first place. This is selection bias, not a change in behavior.

What the crap did I just click on and quickly close at work for #18?

As for #27, it just has to be even. No irregular time signatures in trains, as they can't waltz off the tracks.

I'm not sure why we are focused on the people who are obsessed about getting into an elite college. Most people won't, or would even try to get in regardless of what the rules are. My kids won't.

And cost? Be creative. My 16 year old is home-schooled. Or rather right now he is not. He goes to the local community college. He will spend the last three years of this "high-school" taking 9 to 12 hours a semester. When he is normal college age, he will have 60 hours of credit he will transfer to a major, R1 state school. At that point, we will have spent about 8,000 on tuition and books. Most, if not all, the credits will transfer. He will have a 4.0, or nearly a 4.0. He will get a big fat transfer scholarship and graduate when he is 20.

He will never take the SAT or ACT. He will skip all the high school BS.

And this path is open nearly every person.

These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

That’s a pretty sad statistic… especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.
They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about… and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.
If you’re in this situation…

If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail…

If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point…

Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

=>Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today* <=

I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video… because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own… without your wife even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.

Watch the video now by clicking here: Transform Your Marriage in Minutes<=

There’s no catch to this, and no marketing gimmicks… just a complimentary in-depth guide to saving your marriage.

At the very least, you should watch the first few minutes where Brad reveals the 3 ‘Marriage Murdering Mistakes’… these 3 massive myths alone are a huge reason why nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

Don’t give up on love yet. Take action today and begin re-building your marriage… start by clicking the link below to watch the video now.

==> Fix Your Marriage – Start Making HAPPY Memories<==

The techniques in the video have already worked for hundreds of married couples…. and they’ll work for you, too. What are you waiting for?

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and long-lasting marriage!

Talk to you soon,
