Fat Genes to Skinny Jeans: How Science Can Help You Live Longer

Fat Genes to Skinny Jeans: How Science Can Help You Live Longer
Let me start this article by saying this is an educational post and I'm simplifying things a lot to make it easier to follow along. This  should not replace talking to an actual doctor and/or a genetic counselor. Ok. So, everyone has genes in their DNA in order for the body to know how to build the pieces that make up our bodies. These genes have variations that tell the body to make y...

100 Life Lessons To Teach Your Son

100 Life Lessons To Teach Your Son
UPDATED 10/3/16 This list is for me to remember the important things I want to teach my own son. No one has mastered all these things, so just because we haven't mastered them doesn't mean we can't learn them ourselves or teach them to our son. And remember #88, actions speak louder than words. 1. You can do anything you want, but you can't do everything. Focus. 2. There is no such thing ...

Why I’m Not Impressed By The World’s First Fully Painted Film

Why I’m Not Impressed By The World’s First Fully Painted Film
The Internet keeps showing me this today and I'm not that impressed. Sure, it looks cool. Here watch a clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47h6pQ6StCk So, why am I not impressed? Because "they" keep talking about the 100 artists it has taken to make it, etc. Have they not heard of DeepArt.io? If one were so inclined, they could draw out the necessary images for a biopic about a particular ...

Chunking is when a large amount of information is contained within a more manageable chunk. Quarterbacks do it on the field when they're able to read a defense and pretty much anyone who has beyond average skill in any subject "chunks" to some degree. Learning all the vocabul...

Fun Virtual Reality Games

Fun Virtual Reality Games
This game looks really fun for a party. Kind of like a real, scratch that, virtually real life Apollo 13. https://www.youtube.com/embed/C_dNn7aQbmQ Also, this next one made me think how cool it would be to have "games" (VR games) where you experience historical events the way someone at that time would have experienced them.

My Favorite TV Shows

My Favorite TV Shows
I'm posting this list because I forget about shows after a while and I've been keeping a private list in Evernote for a few years so I can remember what I'm watching and when the new season comes out. Might as well make it public and if people have similar taste maybe they'll find some stuff they like. Also, it'd be cool if I eventually get some suggestions about stuff I might like as well. I make...

Where To Eat In Nashville

Where To Eat In Nashville
My wife and I love to go out to eat when we aren't making Blue Apron or Plated meals, especially if she has clients in town. I get asked a lot about which places are my favorites or what I would recommend to someone who is visiting. This is by no means an exhaustive list. There are so many places popping up all the time that it's hard to keep up. My two favorite stand-outs are Sinema and 5th and T...
