the truth is, i am overcome with an overwhelming desire to disappear to an island and watch sun sets
Our brains are equipped to deal with the world the way it was many thousands of years ago when we were hunter-gatherers. Back then the amount of information that was coming at us was much less and it came at us much more slowly.
In a randomized double-blind study female students were less likely to be hired because they were viewed as less competent. And if your name gives you away, you could be in trouble, too. People with hard to pronounce names are less likely to get hired.
i wish i could sit on a green grassy hill with my best friend and eat ice cream and watch the sun set and feel like everything was going to be okay.
