I am learning about five terms per day in 2021 from what I read and podcasts I listen to. Of those, not all are interesting, or potentially useful to try to retain in my vocabulary since I can’t remember all the terms I learn. However, every now and then, I find upon terms that I deem to be both, interesting and useful, to me, and will write more about them to share with readers, as well as help retain them in my memory since writing about things helps me retain things better. I will also include the sources from where I learned of these terms, which I always catalogue as tweets on my DigitalCitizen Twitter account that you can follow if you like learning about new terms on an almost daily basis. Today’s terms for sharing include inverse charisma, crown shyness, and foodprint, each with definitions.
It’s Cool To Be Brown So Long As It’s Temporary
Have you ever noticed how much Caucasian people want to be darker? Have you ever noticed how much Caucasian people enjoy when they are darker? Yet, as a demographic, they tend to treat people who are darker by nature, not nurture, rather badly. What is with that???
My NEBULOUS Short Running Tights
Running gear is so boring, yet spandex can be so crazy, even if most of the crazy stuff isn’t the “proper” wicking kind for running gear. But from my experience, the wicking stuff ain’t all that great unless you’re gonna be standing around in cold weather after you’re done your run without additional clothing. It’s not like a lot of the spandex holds a lot of water. For this reason, I have committed myself to making the most interesting running wardrobe in at least Canada, for myself! I already have the NIGHTWING body suit and GATORSNAKE and TOXIC long tights for starters. Given summer is coming, though, I needed short running tights and I came up with these NEBULOUS tights below.
Liven Up Boring Ties with Eldredge, Trinity and Other Knots
If you don’t wear ties, you probably know someone who does. Challenge yourself and/or them to do what I’m doing here by sporting an interesting, different kind of knot and liven up the drudgery of boring ties!
Neckties… such an irony. So formal, yet so banal. You wear it to show respect and be respectful of an event and/or group of people. Yet, you just grab one that, for the most part, looks like one anyone else grabbed off the same shelf. Lots of solids, stripes, mostly muted colour palette. However, if you go outside of this most generic of dress codes, you might be flagged for being disrespectful, attention attracting, and so on.
So what’s a man (or woman) to do with his ties so as knot to look so boring? (pun intended)
Better Ways of Getting Closer to Your Food Than Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Only Eating Animals He Kills
Yes, Mark Zuckerberg is only eating animals he kills himself these days! That’s his latest “personal challenge”, which, for context, have included things like learning Chinese in 2010 (continuing) and wearing a tie every day in 2009.
Mark’s reason for doing this?
