Ex Post Facto no. 2 — Bucks, RZA, La Croix, oh my
If there’s one thing I can promise you, it’s that I wish I’d known Item #2 on this week’s Ex Post Facto list a looooong time ago.
Oh well. Cheers to getting smarter tomorrow!
Here’s three bits of retroactive knowledge to get your weekend going:
One EXcellent piece of wisdom to think about:
“Love, like wisdom, dissolves you and then resolves you. It breaks down your ego and puts you back together again properly.” –RZA. (By the way, did you know that Wu-Tang’s leader just released a guided meditations album? It’s awesome.)
One POST you don’t want to miss:
The Counterintuitive Thing About Earning Trust That Explains Why So Many People Screw It Up <– The conclusions from this post have had me thinking all week long.
One FACT Of great interest:
The term “buck”—as in, dollar—comes from fur trading in the 1700s. In those days, deer skins (aka buckskins) were sometimes used as an informal currency. The story goes that the term re-entered modern slang in the 1940s when a diplomat noted that a cask of whiskey used to cost “five bucks.”
If I leave this quarantine to find that the economy has collapsed, I’m hoping that the new currency of the post-apocalypse is empty La Croix cans.
Have a great weekend!
