Maybe I’ll publish them in some informal way. I like the way you’ve gone about publishing your summaries.
I’m sure you can export all of your highlights from Readwise into one document but I’ve never done it. I probably have thousands of highlights now, so I don’t know if that would be of interest to most people?
I write summaries + use Readwise to make flashcards that I review (mostly) every day on quotes I found particularly memorable/important/profound.
Also, any gym that requires you to wear a specific Gi is a huge 🚩
There’s a lot of great BJJ gyms in LA if you’re interested in BJJ specifically. If you’re new, it’s all about finding a culture/vibe you like. You won’t be able to tell the difference between a world champion & an “average” black belt coach. Visit the 5 gyms closest to you and try them all.
I second this request
Not sure what kind of BJJ gym you were in to injure your head multiple times while rolling… def not a normal occurrence. It’s a reasonable thing to write out online to ‘just exit the situation’ until you find yourself in a real-life situation that you can’t exit or someone you care about can’t exit.
Gotcha, sounds like BJJ is the thing for you - combatives without the head trauma. There’s a vast chasm between being prepared and capable to defend yourself & your loved ones when needed and recklessly committing to unnecessary violent confrontations. Marc advocated the former, not the latter.
How often do you train?
I first read it back in college. I found it deeply chilling and authentic. It expanded my world view on morality, the complexity of mankind, and the precariousness of human rights protections.
Someone else shared that article as well. I suspect the same physiological responses impact the preference for cranberry and ginger ale.
You’re the second to do half & half. Might have to try it
Maybe I’ll try the ginger ale next time
brb googling “how to name a phenomenon”
Yikes now I’m just an outlier
Lex Fridman and John Danaher (best coach in the sport’s history) on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Compelling argument for the value of training BJJ + lots of philosophical discussion on how to achieve mastery in any domain. https://open.spotify.com/episode/44ZDq04FTmgxtOFoUaxTYC?si=VgCEZ8yqSRWVYK_wbMYx2A
It seems I’m in the minority so far, 2-1 ginger ale v cranberry
Ahhh fascinating! A physiological response to decreased atmospheric pressure and humidity. Thanks for sharing this. It seems the mystery is solved
Yep this checks out I think we’re done here
Interesting theory. I don’t have a theory formulated yet, so I’ll continue to collect more data points in the meantime
I wonder what the cause is. Some kind of psychological contextual bias? Or, far more unlikely, a physiological response to altitude?
