Have you watched any Ted Talks? I go through phases where I watch them nonstop and then I quickly forget that they exist at all.
There isn't a specific reason why I'm signalling this one out. It happens to be the last one I saw that I liked and I guess it's just a good example of the sort of randomness that's out there that can become really, really interesting. Usually even the most out-of-left-field topics are fascinating at Ted. This is no exception.
Also, a confession for you: my New Year's resolution was, in fact, to read more. I have been successful (though "more" is an incredibly low bar, so please don't think I'm bragging), so this subject is actually much more relevant to me than it used to be.
