However you feel about the recent Brexit vote, one aspect of it really stood out: the disparity between older and younger voters. ...

Stimulants 101: How to wake yourself up and get shit done (without destroying your long-term health)If you're reading this, I'm assuming you take a shit load of stimulants to stay awake and get work done. It's the only option on those days where you've been grinding through mind-numbing Excel for 8 hours and your brain is turning to mush. When you've been getting crushed for weeks and barely slee...

Is College Worth the Opportunity Cost?This is going to seem like an odd question to many of you, and I even debated whether I should ask it here. On the other hand, this might be the perfect place to ask it. It's about the opportunity cost of college. I'm asking as the father of two young men, ages 11 and 13 (6th and 8th grade). College...

Presidents can use internet to do things for usIt's Saturday and I found an interesting read. This article explains President Obama's use of military technology: drones, cyber operations, and special forces. All of which are obviously heavily technology enabled and depend upon use of the Internet. Looking at this wholly, we, as a country, are en...

Any good stories about dating colleagues/working with ex?Inc. recently published an article called Help! I'm Supposed to Interview My Ex for a Job, and it got me curious. Despite the office romance stigma, I'm sure stories of people dating each other at work aren't rare. Has anyone dated a colleague? What was that like? Any good stories? ...

Mylan's 400% price increase vs. Moral ObligationHello Monkeys. I've been following this story for quite some time now and I'm trying to make sense of both sides of the issue.
