Things I’m Up to and Interested In

I’d play this:
about the conflict between Viking settlers, Inuit
settlers, and native Greenland Tunit peoples.

Article I found interesting: After getting a taste of freedom

Something I always considered but never followed up with:

Homeschooled kids tend to be better-educated and more tolerant, and
homeschooling is on the rise

Deal I’m happy to share: Trying to prep for the Big Game? Want
something everyone will love, Primal or not? Just really, really
love wings?
Sign up for a membership at Butcher Box and
get three pounds of organic chicken wings added free to every
order for life
. Get your orders in by 1/28 to ensure your
wings arrive in time for the game.

Question I’m Asking

Comment of the Week

I assume your referencing the article regarding a supposed link
between skipping breakfast and increased risk of diabetes due to
how absurd it is?
Just checking, because otherwise my whole fasted morning routine
from the last few years now seems that it could be my undoing.

– I’d love to respond in full, Josh,
but sadly I skipped breakfast and now I’m in an ambulance headed
to emergency.
