  • How to put numbers on things where no numbers exist.
  • Contextualizing and decoupling in the saga of Caster Semenya.
  • Does putting numbers on dating make me an emotionless robot?
  • Rationality, mindfulness, and poking your head above the river.
  • The posts I regret writing.
  • Antinatalism and the connection between emotion and philosophy.
  • How intuition follows controversy, and why hunter-gatherers don’t have opinions on immigration.
  • Fake frameworks as the key to rationality and why I prefer Magic the Gathering personality color wheel to the big 5 personality system or MBTI.
  • Rationality alone and in a group.
  • Why soccer is a supreme entertainment product, aesthetic experience, and showcase of virtue.
  • MMA as a gateway drug to loving sports.
