 There are already entities with vastly greater than human intelligence working on the problem of augmenting their own intelligence. A great many, in fact. We call them corporations.

"My parents don't do politics, either. Do you see your old mum?"
She shook her head. "Naw," she said. "Left my mum when I was little. He's a cop, believe it or not. In Glasgow. Mum's been remarried for ages, though. Stepdad's a good bloke."
(mum = man?)

have with me, but am not getting far into, T'ai Chi classics, shambhala press. T'ai Chi was one of the two classes I flunked in my semester at Naropa Institute. Naropa and Shambhala are connected.
also reading a journal/memoir by alec guiness.
finished reading the art and science of dumpster diving, a loompanics books publication.
loompanics is no longer in business but had a lot of counterculture skills texts in their catalog.

Look for small victories and build on that. Each small victory, even if it is just getting up 5 minutes earlier, gives you confidence. You realize that these little victories make you feel great, and you keep going. You realize that being paralyzed by fear of failure is worse than failure.

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

taxation of eggs and sperm   markets in everything, tyler cowan's link.

the proper tax treatment here is as "other income", not self-employment income,since she has only done this twice and it's not her regular gig. i probably will not get around to writing this up in a leter for the judge.
