Mike Elgan3,437,756Behold! The new League of Extraordinary Circle Friends!My League of Extraordinary Circle Friends is my hand-picked group of super charming super-sharers! I want you to do three things: 1. Click the "Add people" button below and circle this group (especially if you've circle this group previously -- doing this will update the group without duplicates). 2. Share this post with all your circles. 3. Share this post with people who are looking for awesome people to circle on G+. I've added four new people to the League.+Amira Elgan! Yes: She's my wife. And I've been trying to avoid adding her for a year. But her stream is perfect for the League so I've added her. +Noble Ackerson is a super nice and interesting guy, a super nerd and consummate glasshole -- he uses Google Glass to great effect to bring you into his world. In fact, the only bigger glasshole I know is... +Cecilia Abadie and Noble work at the same company, and Ceclia is another Glass user with a wonderful Google+ stream. +Andreas Katifes gives you a window into Greek scenes and Greek food that's so compelling you might accidentally quit your job and move to Greece. Welcome to the League, everyone! 2014-07-27 23:39:2625111240

Would you pay a small fortune to eat dinner hanging 150 ft above the ground by a crane?

There is a restaurant in Shanghai, China that charges between $300-$1,400 for dinner while you eat suspended from the ground by a crane.  The table can hold 22 people and it's a 50 minute meal.  Customers are strapped in by a safety harness through the meal and an see amazing views of Shanghai while they enjoy their meal.  Would you eat there if someone were to invite you to dinner?

I loved this lady I met yesterday. She was working at the candy shop and said I could take her photo and post it online. She told me that she always tells people that, "This job is a reward for every single bad job I ever had before." She told me she has really enjoyed working there for 6 years.

I was walking through Pike's Place with my kids and my 6 year old boy got all excited and started pointing to a store window, "Mom, mom, it's Chucky!!!"
I have absolutely no clue how he knows who Chucky is. I haven't even watched that movie.

Just hit this and I am thinking about it. I am not sure how much I agree. I don't think I am a very good faker. Still, I kind of like the quote.  What do you think?

I don't think that you can fake warmth. You can fake lust, jealousy, anger; those are all quite easy. But actual, genuine warmth? I don't think you can fake it.

Nothing like a quiet Sunday cooking up a fresh batch of soup, and using fish heads to make a broth.  I usually use fish bones but all the fishmonger had was heads.  I actually watched him cut the heads off the 3 large and very fresh salmon before he gave them to me.  What are you up to today?

I have a lot of very close friends from India, so I feel a strong kinship with that country.  I thought this was cool beans:
"India became the first Asian nation to reach the Red Planet when its indigenously made unmanned spacecraft entered the orbit of Mars on Wednesday — and the first nation in the world to successfully reach Mars on its first attempt."

I am reading Sophie's Choice right now.  This quote has me thinking up a storm:
*Someday I will understand Auschwitz. This was a brave statement but innocently absurd. No one will ever understand Auschwitz. What I might have set down with more accuracy would have been: Someday I will write about Sophie's life and death, and thereby help demonstrate how absolute evil is never extinguished from the world. Auschwitz itself remains inexplicable. The most profound statement yet made about Auschwitz was not a statement at all, but a response.

The query: "At Auschwitz, tell me, where was God?"

And the answer: "Where was man?*
― William Styron, Sophie's Choice

Banned Books Week

It's banned books week this week.  The best explanation I have heard recently about the importance of reading banned books is given by  +Ramez Naam in this video A message about the power of free expression from CLA and author Ramez Naam.  

In this video Ramez brings up a brilliant point;  Books are banned not because of what they say but because of who they threaten. And when books threaten someone it is  usually the powerful.  

What is your favorite banned book?  Has there been a banned book that influenced you in some way?  Are you reading a banned book this week?   #bannedbooksweek   #bannedbooks

If anyone needs some interesting food for thought this was a great post by +Yonatan Zunger .   He always has something interesting on his page, but recently he's managed to somehow get even better--as unbelievable as that is to me.    

Thiel's Question

In a recent book, Peter Thiel noted that when he interviews people for a job, he likes to ask them: “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?” I like this question; it can tell you a lot about how a person thinks, and where they're willing to argue with people. It also got me thinking about my own answers to such a thing (as a good question will always do), and while I could probably think of a few dozen answers, here's one that came to mind quickly.

I believe that people aren't actually stupid. 

Let me give this some context: we tend to assume that people are stupid, or are doing things because they simply don't understand, in a shocking variety of contexts -- especially when they disagree with us about something. Sometimes it's associated with simple things: lottery tickets are a "tax on people who can't do math," people only use drugs if they're too dumb to understand the consequences.

Sometimes it's people's entire careers: just yesterday, I quoted James Heaney as describing government regulation as being run by "the best guesses of well-intentioned but dim-witted bureaucrats." And there's a neverending stream of media commentators who are completely stunned and confused by the fact that people become drug dealers or hang out on street corners rather than getting straight jobs.

Sometimes it's far more systematic: both the Left and the Right ultimately structure government programs on the theory that poor people can't understand things without the help of someone wiser than them. From the Left, this takes the form of complex systems designed to make sure people get only the "right" assistance, e.g. buying only the right foods. From the Right, it takes the form of making sure that these people aren't "cheating" and using their assistance for bad things. Both of these presuppose that the people in question couldn't decide on which things they actually need by themselves.

Sometimes it's overtly political, as when we wonder why people vote for politicians and parties who very obviously do not have their best interests at heart. 

My unpopular idea is this: people tend to be specialist experts in the circumstances of their own lives. If someone is unemployed, a job is available, and they aren't taking it, I'm going to start from the assumption that yes, they are aware that jobs pay money and they need money, and they probably know something I don't. (For example, that job would require that they stop providing child care to a relative's children, or the cost of getting to that job would eat up all the pay, or any number of other things) If someone is voting for a political candidate who seems directly inimical to their needs, then I'm going to assume that they have some other needs as well which this candidate does serve, and that those are more important to them.

This applies to the powerful as well as to the powerless. For example, if politicians continue to push a legislative agenda which claims to achieve one thing but actually fails at it completely, but instead has a bunch of other consequences, and they continue to do so, then I am going to assume that they are not stupid: they are simply not stating their actual objectives. (And this might be because they feel a need to conceal those objectives, or it might be because they themselves don't consciously understand them!)

This latter consequence of my unpopular hypothesis can seem remarkably cynical at times. If you apply this to (say) the War on Drugs -- which has zero measurable effect on drugs, but which has profound effects on incarceration rates, on the political liberty of Certain Segments of the Population, on the economics of life of those same segments, and on the powers of the police -- then I am going to assume that the people who continue to advocate this are not, on the whole, idiots. Rather, these are their objectives, and the War on Drugs is simply a rhetorical tool and a political structure into which those objectives can be fit.

In fact, our politics are filled with loudly touted movements and programs which seem to have no correlation with what they actually achieve. I'm going to avoid giving a lengthy list here, since I suspect you can come up with them on your own and I would just infuriate hordes of people by suggesting that their public statements are disingenuous, but I have found this to be a profoundly useful razor to apply to political statements, and the cynical-seeming outcomes it produces tend to be right more often than not.

In the thread below, +Christof Harper summarizes this nicely: "Never attribute to stupidity actions you don't understand." 

Oh, and lottery tickets? You're not buying a stake in the prize; that would be idiotic. In fact, anyone who was buying a lottery ticket seriously believing that they would win millions of dollars from doing so would be clearly disconnected from reality. Most people are paying for entertainment: a time period of getting to hope, fantasize, and laugh about the idea of "what if I won?" That is, they're paying for the things they actually get from buying the lottery ticket, not the things which they almost certainly won't get.

So, let me pass the question on to you: what important truth do very few people agree with you on?

I think someone like +Yonatan Zunger would do a better write up about this, although I found the article easy enough to read.  There is definitely a biased towards youth in the tech world, which is disappointing, since  often the most remarkable things come from people over the age of 30, or 40, or even 50 for that matter.  I found this part as interesting as the discussion about math:
"The stereotype, outmoded though it is, is that new mathematical discoveries emerge from the minds of dewy young geniuses. But Zhang is over 50. What’s more, he hasn’t published a paper since 2001. Some of the world’s most prominent number theorists have been hammering on the bounded gaps problem for decades now, so the sudden resolution of the problem by a seemingly inactive mathematician far from the action at Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford came as a tremendous surprise."

I just discovered the Philogelos or The Laughter Lover, which is the oldest known collection of jokes. It is a collection of 265 jokes made in the fourth or fifth century CE. It is written in Greek. Maybe I am weird but I think some of them are still pretty funny. You can take a look at some of them in the link I included.  Which one made you laugh?

A photo I took the other day of the Great Wheel in Seattle.  I remember when they put it up.  I need to get there some sunny day and take photos from the ride.   #Seattle

How to Tell the Temperature with Cricket Chirps
from the random interesting facts archive

Crickets chirp in time to temperature--if you count the number of chirps you hear in 15 seconds and add 37, you'll come close to knowing how hot it is outside. Or there is this formula from the Farmers Almanac:

To convert cricket chirps to degrees Fahrenheit, count number of chirps in 14 seconds then add 40 to get temperature.

Example: 30 chirps + 40 = 70° F

To convert cricket chirps to degrees Celsius, count number of chirps in 25 seconds, divide by 3, then add 4 to get temperature.

Example: 48 chirps /(divided by) 3 + 4 = 20° C

Hello Plussers.  Here's an unusually flattering photo of me to start Monday off with.  In reality I am sitting here all sweaty after morning yoga and a busy morning with my 3 kids, but it's fun to pretend to be glamorous sometimes.   What are your plans for the week?

Just another day around the Seattle area.  For years I keep hoping not that I'll get a boat, because heaven help everyone on the water, if I am trying to sail one of those  BUT I would love to have a friend with a boat.  11 years of living in Seattle and I have managed to make.....

zero 

friends with a  boat.  I have plenty of friends mind you, but none of them have boats.  I am waiting for the day some handsome guy with a boat falls madly in love with me and wants to sail me around on weekends (with my husbands permission of course ;) ).

Here, I was quietly minding my own business and eating a peaceful lunch outside of Biscuit Bitch in Seattle, when a young woman dressed as Uncle Sam came and put on a show for me. As soon as she was done she ran off.   Is there such a thing as a dull moment in Seattle?  I've never had one yet.

I took  this photo just about an hour ago at the top of the Columbia Tower in #Seattle.  It's the Space Needle with the flag at half mast, remembering 9/11.

The Story of the Only American Not on Earth on Sept 11th
"It's horrible to see smoke pouring from wounds in your own country from such a fantastic vantage point," he wrote. "The dichotomy of being on a spacecraft dedicated to improving life on the earth and watching life being destroyed by such willful, terrible acts is jolting to the psyche."

Remember, remember, the 11th of September. 

If we remembered everyday that we could lose someone at any moment, we would love them more fiercely and freely, and with-out fear, not because there is nothing to lose, but because everything can always be lost. 13 years ago today.___Remember, remember, the 11th of September.

The Only Royal Palace in the United States
Random thing I learned today: Honolulu is the only place in the United States with a royal palace. It is called the Iolani Palace and it is in the capitol district of downtown Honolulu. In 2008 it was was overtaken by a group of native Hawaiians to protest what they view as illegitimate rule by the United States.  I included a photo from Wikipedia.

Lina Cavalieri a historic beauty

Natalina Cavalieri or Lina as she was called for short was my discovery this past week.  She was an Italian opera singer of humble origin and somewhat tepid singing ability who became famous for her extraordinary beauty.  She was called one of “THE defining icons of the Belle Époque era”.  Her beauty made her world famous and an overnight sensation in France where she began humbly as a café singer after being raised in an impoverished household.   After becoming an overnight sensation she divided her time between singing in Paris and St. Petersburg.  She eventually married a Russian Prince, which gave her the financial means and time to take serious singing lessons and make her way into the opera.  When she sang, everyone would be mesmerized, not so much by her voice but by her beauty on stage.

Linda had one son, and went on to have 4 husbands and eventually star in a small number of Italian silent films.  She also started her own cosmetic company and wrote a book about beauty.  Her lasting legacy turned out not to be her cosmetics, or her acting ability, or even her musical talent, but her famous features, which even beyond the grave led people to be inspired by her.  An Italian designer, Fornasetti started using her face as a motif.  If you want to see more of her do a Google image search of her name and let me know if you also find her as mesmerizing as I did.  ___

My friend Mary came to visit me at the beach.  She has this fabulous curly hair.  I snapped this photo of her looking over the ocean that I thought was lovely.
