  • Cracked on David Caruso: Paul and I occasionally watch CSI: Miami — as a comedy. The show is so absurdly melodramtic — with “H” as the exaggerated hero whose mere glance strikes fear in the heart of criminals in Miago. We can’t help but laugh.
  • The Persuaders: Robert Cialdini and the Science of Persuasion An entertaining but brief survey of Cialdini’s work on techniques of persuasion. I recommend Cialdini’s book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion for psychological self-defense.
  • Ultimate Battle: The Snuggie vs. Slanket vs. Freedom Blanket vs. Blankoat: A review. Full disclosure: Paul and I bought slankets before it was uncool to do so.
  • Totalitarian Architecture of the Third Reich: I’m amazed by how clearly these building models convey the repressive state-over-individual totalitarianism of the Third Reich.
