Linky Friday #189: Tattooed Introversion
Crime:[C1] The question may boil down to: When you own stuff, do you really own it?
[C2] Being a girl.
[C3] Operation Smoke and Mirrors: It didn’t happen if the Chicago Police Department head honchos say it didn’t happened.
[C5] For kids, Virtually Life Without Possibility of Parole gets the death penalty.
[C6] A group of Asian-Americans wants to abolish prisons. (The article is an interesting look at the history of Asian-Americans and the prison system.)
[C7] Anarchy in Pennsylvania! In the 1680’s, that is.
Business:[B1] Marco Marandiz wishes that Silicon Valley would get to work actually solving real problems. Maybe they should do a start-up where they do a blood test with just a few drops of blood or something.
[B2] Well this doesn’t sound good. I wonder how is Madrigal Elektromotoren is doing.
[B4] Navigating tattoos in the workplace. I’m not a tattoo guy, but people outside particularly open-to-such-things of society where they cannot be covered up baffle my conservative soul.
[B6] Apple may not lead the self-driving car revolution after all. Getting into the car business seems a bit more difficult than getting into the phone business.
Health:[H1] There are more opioid prescriptions than people in Louisiana.
[H2] If your life is feeling incomplete, maybe suicide is the answer.
[H3] Tattoos with a cause. I have to get over my anti-tattoo biases, but it sounds really cool.
[H4] The degree to which generic drugs are identical to the name brand may be overstated, which is unfortunate in multiple respects.
[H5] An eight year old on a mission.
Romance:[R1] Madison Moore explains how difficult flirting is with the introverted.
[R2] Sometimes when women allude to having a boyfriend, they’re really just gently blowing you off. These men are OUTRAGED!
[R3] Cohabitation doesn’t seem to filter out bad couplings, and isn’t likely to endure as a marriage, but it does make women feel as good as if they’d gotten married. Scott Stanley takes some issue with that, though.
[R4] Unsurprisingly, I am on Team Separate Bedrooms, when feasible. Spousal benefits come with being married.
[R5] According to The Onion, more Americans are putting off marriage (until ultimatums are issued).
Self:[S1] There’s lots of money in tattoo removal.
[S2] When is the concept of us a fiction created by Big Data?
[S3] Tania Lombrozo argues that there are no controls in evaluating how events shaped our lives, and so we should beware of the fictitious cause-effect we assign to them.
[S4] Smartphones as “companions to our emotional lives.”
[S5] This does correspond with my own experience. I really do divide my life into where I was living at any particular time (even within Colosse). Even so, I’m tired of moving.
[S6] Jessica Abel explains that if you’re thinking too much about how great something you’re going to do is going to be, you’re not doing the thing that’s supposed to be great.
[S7] Introvert. Asshole. Hero.
