I learned from Bust magazine sometime in the last couple of years that, in the 1950s, young women who hoped to one day get married would register, through ads in the backs of magazines, with companies that made different patterns of silverware. They’d sign up for a particular pattern and hope to receive forks, spoons, and knives for their various…
I am thankful for many things, principal among them contact lenses, the Internet, and no longer being a child. Surely, we can all think of things to be thankful for; in fact, many of the things we ought to be very thankful for (The Nazis were defeated! Womenfolk can vote!) are exactly the things we are fortunate to be able…
If you are a New Yorker, you know how annoying it is when someone is walking too slowly. The sidewalks are crowded; the subway stairs are crowded. It’s like someone driving 45 on the highway. One person can really impede a lot of other people. And if you are walking four-wide on a crowded sidewalk in New York, you are…
Many romantically-inclined people strenuously object to picking a partner based on any reason but love and attraction. This, obviously, is a fairly new development in human society. In the past, and today in many other cultures, men have been (or are) judged by their ability to provide financially, and to a lesser extent, women by their perceived ability to be…
Is it better to rule through love or fear? Machiavelli always gets a bad rap (much like Draco and Procrustes). In The Prince, however, Machiavelli didn’t actually suggest that ruling through fear was the superior method; he said that a ruling through a combination of love and fear was best, but if you had to pick one, fear is safer.…
I was introduced to the word “under-reinvesting” by an entrepreneur who had been told by the venture capitalists who had funded his startup that it was a mistake to have money in the bank — in the world of venture capital, where it’s astronomical-returns-or bust, having money in the bank was a sign that revenue was not being reinvested in…
Hanna Rosin’s The End of Men was this summer’s gender meme: it’s hard to say that women are, across the board, oppressed in America when they graduate from all levels of education at higher rates than men and when the recession is killing traditionally male jobs left and right. You only have to watch Mad Men to see how far…
Travel writer Rolf Potts, author of Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel, has just finished traveling around the world for six weeks without a single piece of luggage. His trip is being sponsored by … a company that makes vests with lots and lots of pockets, so you can look like either a fisherman or…
I grew up reading Readers Digest. From ages 9-16, I read every single word of every single issue: This is Joe’s Pancreas. How to Protect Your Retirement Savings from Liberals. Drama in Real Life. Every month, Drama in Real Life told the true story of someone who had fallen while mountain climbing and survived for days on a ledge the…
I am convinced that most of what we consider sound financial values about budgeting and saving are illogical Depression-era holdovers. At Barnes and Noble this week, I paged through a copy of Everyday Cheapskate’s Greatest Tips. Maybe I’ll learn something useful, I thought. And I did. Here is the one useful thing I learned: Disposable razor blades get dull quickly…
