How to Wield a Knife: Some people hold a boning knife like a conductor's baton during a particularly slow part of Pachelbel's Canon. This is wrong.

I vote for a one-way trip:
U2's recent 360 world tour featured three 390-ton stages, 200 crew members, and on one occasion the band even added a satellite link-up to the International Space Station. The 18-month tour ended up producing 65,000 tons of CO2, or enough to fly the members of U2 to Mars and back. -- Fast Company

Constitutionally incapable of leading a bourgeois existence even though both longed for it, they lived like wild gypsy souls rolling and tumbling from one end to the other of a wild gypsy land, inhabiting a succession of cottages, houses, apartments and garrets from Swansea to Hampshire. He wrote and published and went on tour. He drank to the extent that life was becoming one prolonged debauch.

Had Enough Therapy?: Secrets for a Long, Happy Marriage "Even if you are not yet married, it's never too early to prepare. The good habits that you develop before your marriage will feel more natural once you do get married. Do not imagine that you are going to undergo a character transformation once you put on the ring. Life is not like that."

You need this like a hole in the head: Brain surgery boosts spirituality: Scientific American "Lose a tumour, gain self-transcendence." Deal!
