June Recap

In case you missed a post or two this month, here’s a quick recap of what I wrote about during the month of June:

Questions I Asked –

How Does A Calculator Work? – They rely on chips and string. Throw in a random penny or two and you would have the exact same thing I find when looking between my couch cushions.

How Are Social Security Numbers Assigned? – Answer: Randomly. But that wasn’t always the case.

Who Was The 1st NBA Draft Pick – On the eve of the NBA Draft we look back to an old Wonder Why Wednesday.

What Is New Car Smell? – The answer is very complex answer, but I have come up with a way to simplify it so we can always remember. It uses a comparison to the Fast and the Furious movies.


Things We Learned –

How much we would pay to avoid regret – Imagine a life where fear is not a problem. You are not looking back, so the last thing you worry about is regret.What do you think that experience would cost? How much would you pay to avoid regret? Dr. Hi Po Bobo Lau from the University of Hong Kong set out to find that answer.

Why now is a good time to start – There is a workout class I attend every week and every week one woman, let’s call her Betty White, shows up 30 minutes late. The class is one hour long, so she misses half of the workout. The class begins at 5pm. She gets there at 5:30pm. Always. Here’s what I learned about that.

More evidence that now is a good time to start – A client once gave me the task of reading through all the reviews of their products. No, they didn’t want to show off with how many five stars they had received. They wanted me to search through the reviews and mark which ones would be helpful to others who were looking to buy their basketball DVDs and training videos. Here’s what I learned about that.

What the NBA Finals would look like if it were a Disney movie – I came up with some examples of who the NBA Finals stars would be if they were Disney characters. Check it out.

Forgetting things may not be a bad thing – But if this is true, why am I not Albert Einstein.
