01) Economic Update: Competition & Monopoly In Capitalism


“Capitalism’s growing problems (inequalities, instabilities, unsustainability etc.) lead some defenders to argue that the cause is monopoly displacing competition in many industries. We disagree: capitalism’s history is oscillations between competition and monopoly, each causing the other. Capitalism is the problem, not its oscillating forms.”

“what is our unfettered use of social media really doing to our minds, our personalities and our culture?

Is it damaging or helpful?”

I’ve never been a fan of that sort of thing, either.

01) How to Build a Backyard Rollercoaster (for less than $500)


“In this video I speak with the man who literally wrote the book(s) on backyard rollercoasters: Paul Gregg.

I’m calling this a ‘how to’ video, but really it’s deeper than that. This is a dive into what it takes to design a backyard rollercoaster. I took a lot of inspiration for the style of this video from Destin at Smarter Every Day. Let me know if you’d like to see more of this type of video on my channel!

Paul Gregg is a retired aerospace engineer who I spent the day with learning about his backyard rollercoasters. His rollercoasters are designed and tested to the same standards as airplanes, which is incredible considering the materials to build them are available at any hardware store. Paul has made backyard rollercoasters accessible to anyone with basic tools and a yard to work in.

I’m not real pleased with the performances of the Nigel edit. His debut at Tough Turkey was really bad…and it’s not that he hasn’t won any matches, he’s just refusing to win a match while in one that’s being recorded.

I’ve already done a bit of fine tuning on him, to get him to tone down on the annoying things he’s regularly messing up on…This should help.

I should have put him in against a weak jobber, for his first match…CrOZy is proving to be a serious talent…and I’m still thinking of him, in terms of the weakling he used to be.
