READ TIME: 2.30 MINS
Is most of the world crazy – or, am I? Ever feel that you are out-of-step? I read the QUARTZ report online. Most articles are very current, newsworthy, informative etc. There were three items however that really got to me. The first was that Boeing have been studying Geese and decided that to save fuel maybe airliners should fly in a V formation! Seriously. Next up was the guy entrusted by the USA to set the passwords for all government departments. He’s just admitted he got it all wrong! Great, no wonder the Yanks have been hacked. Finally was an item about the scientific testing of the optimal time to milk dunk an Oreo cookie for eating-perfection. Hey, aren’t there lives to save? Children to educate? Cancer causes to eliminate? Turns out its three seconds for an optimal Oreo experience. Who cares? I enjoy just dunking my bikkies – not timing them!
Recently I read a scientific report showing that success (what-ever that is to you?) rarely brings happiness – but that happiness does bring success! (Again, what is success?). My latest online book read was “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” – by Mark Manson (Amazon). An excellent de-stressing tonic. There are things the author suggests you definitely do care about, which he raises towards the end of this book. Reading it has certainly made me a slower and therefore better driver! If I’m late – I’m late. Those who know me will understand.
The one big business item I do care about is MANSAM® Magazine. So here is what we have for you in this Edition:
I hopped into a cab and the driver said, “My Dad has invented this great way to test spark-plugs in lawn-mowers. Makes it easy and foolproof” See what you think in this item on John Leeson’s creation.
As you know, Bill Widerberg is someone I greatly respect. This is an excellent article on the subject of “English”
Two interesting visual-presentations for you:

Check out Wall Art in Europe – Part 1. Yes, I know you have seen some of these, however this is the best collection we could gather for you to enjoy.
