“Something quite bad happens when we start to go out into the adult world and start to choose love partners. We think we’re out to find partners who make us happy, but we’re not.

— Alain de Botton, The School of Life

“I dunno if you know this but the word ‘testify’ actually comes from the ancient Roman practice of Roman men, when they were in court swearing an oath, they had to clutch their testicles. It’s true!

Eye-opening social experiment on privilege

I loathe “Dr.” Phil (it’s a Ph.D, not a medical license, you puffy-faced MAGA twits, the man couldn’t diagnose a nail-biter) but this is the only footage I could find of this instructive group activity. All high school classrooms should do this with their kids at the beginning of each school year as a reminder.
