  1. Just finished A Critique of the New Commonplaces by Jacques Ellul, a french philosopher and sociologist who also he authored 58 books and more than a thousand articles over his lifetime, many of which discussed propaganda, the impact of technology on society, and the interaction between religion and politics.
  2. Sometimes Support probably need to read some decent stuff to clear their minds from all the weirdos who contact them all day long 😁
  3. When i'm packed with work I tend to read easy stuff just to escape a little, so just finished the 2 volumes of "Die Rache der Zwerge" by Markus Heitz (but in french, not in german). The books are called The Revenge of the Dwarves in english. Had already read his 4 previous books of the serie before those 2 so i'm continuing the story of Tungdil Golden Hands. Not the best heroic-fantasy book I ever read but it's fun enough and easy to read when you are tired and not available to read some psychological or philosophical stuff ^^ Same, i have 250+ books waiting on my shelve
  4. Love you all the support girl team, especially the new one ... Darka and her wild wig wth gif is not working, so the link is https://media.giphy.com/media/gMl3DS0YDkIsU/giphy.gif
  5. Didn't update my readings for a while but this is a list of some stuff I read this summer : - Tyrese Gibson : How to get out of your own way - Baltazar Gracian : L'art de vivre avec élégance (The art of living with elegance) - Fiona McIntosh : The Quickening Trilogy - Myrren's Gift (book 1) + Blood and Memory (book 2) + Bridge of Souls (book 3) : 2.000 pages but a great fantasy story.
  6. Actually still watching old Clint Eastwood's movies (i'm watching all his filmography, 50+ movies still around 15 to go). Last one i saw Also finished the last seasons of Marvel Agents of Shield, Big Bang Theory and Star Wars Rebels and here and there the new episodes of Krypton.
  7. Some of the books I read in the last weeks : And i'm currently reading the biography of Usain Bolt
  8. Steve Jobs is no better than you, me or someone else about those issues or questions, he did some stupid things about his well-being & co (like only eating apple as only food for a long period of time, taking some drugs, ...) but yes the fact that multiple successfull people talk about it is enough to take a look at it For the automated responses I believe it's just automatic because we don't really digg to see where it come from. Like for example people usually eat fish on friday in France, it's mostly because old religious reasons. So lot's of people don't think about when to eat fi
  9. I knew you will react to this 😛 But my guess is that it really can impact for some people. I read some books about scientific studies who showed that our brain only have a small amount of "clear" decisions he can make each day, and when we start to make bad choices it's because we are not able to think clearly enough, taking all the implications in count, less able to see the long term vision of the decision, etc. That's why we tend to make more bad choices in the evening compare to the morning (being less able to say no to alcohol, to slept with someone we don't really like, doing some i
  10. Steve Jobs did it, Mark Zuckerberg do it and in some extend Barack Obama or Albert Einstein did it too. Their claim is that it’s a way to avoid decision fatigue. We have a certain amount of decisionnal power each day and avoiding to think what to wear is a way to save some of this power for more important things in the day, so they decided to cut some by not thinking about how to dress. If you were 100% sure it’s indeed the case, would you wear the same thing every day ? (note: not one single set, you’ll have 7 times the same outfit each for one day of the week ^^)
