Five Things #138

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

  1. An interesting video on how Somalia's Pirates make money. I'll stick to the drum tuition (I'd make a very poor pirate).

  2. I think "buy the cheap thing first" holds up as pretty good advice. The quality version will probably win out in the end, but you definitely come to appreciate what makes something good quality by owning something bad quality first. Plus, buying the cheap version first allows you to try your hand at more things. Sure some hobbies won't work out but at least you aren't lumped with an expensive object you have no use for once the initial enthusiasm has died down, you can just move on to the next hobby with some money still in your wallet.

  3. Since getting what seems like a life time supply of coffee for Christmas, I've started drinking a lot of tea! Fear not, no coffee will be going to waste. This video on the history of tea has given me a new appreciation for a Tea, it has quite a heritage!

  4. Agreed, we all need Eyerollers.

  5. Without doubt one of the funniest things I've seen on Twitter. And a sharp analysis from Stephen Fry.

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

ps. There will be no Five Things next week but normal service will resume the following week.
