Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. A very interesting article titled Why Facts Don’t Change Our Minds. This quote jumped out to me: “Presented with someone else’s argument, we’re quite adept at spotting the weaknesses. Almost invariably, the positions we’re blind about are our own.”

  2. “'Spite buildings' are constructions specifically intended to irritate or protest: our smallest human pettiness made manifest in bricks, mortar and a reckless disregard for planning laws.” What a strange species we are.

  3. And continuing the architectural theme: How to hurricane-proof your house

  4. I’ve just finished series 2 of Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History podcast. It’s really good. He’s a masterful storyteller. I would recommend an episode but I think I’d end up listing them all, so just start at the beginning.

  5. Here’s a song I hadn’t listened to in a while: In The Clouds by Under The Influence of Giants (GREAT band name). If you like that, definitely check out their album, It’s very good.

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.
