Although he didn't realize that you don't need even that much money.

Just watched this and it is a great source of information. At about 1:15:00 he talks about going on a 'news sabbath' and I can tell from personal experience this is a great idea. March 2014 until about Fall 2014 I completely tuned out all news feeds and it was amazing. Even now I only check financial news and energy news, but I can feel another sabbath coming.

Chef:

A fun movie with work and life priorities as a central theme. Heard about it through an interview with Jon Favreau that was also interesting:

I'm sure most people here have seen this before, but in case you haven't, drop everything and watch now.

I feel like we need a humor section here in the forums.

Anyone here ever listened to the Legalise Freedom channel on Youtube? I find most of his interviews extremely fascinating particularly the podcasts on spirituality and consciousness. Very deep stuff, which explains why only 5K subscribers.

Pico Iyer gave the baccalaureate speech at USC. In it he manage to talk about his early retirement as well as about a half dozen topics we've discussed here recently (see how many you can catch) all meandering - strangely - around Leonard Cohen.

Nate Hagans - Turning 21 in the Anthropocene

This has some pretty incredible and sobering statistics regarding the 6th great extinction that is going on right now. 50% of all animal life, 40% of insect biomass and 30% of all birds in Europe gone in just the last 25-40 years.

Also includes a host of other topics.

@cmonkey - The "grandma I saw a squirrel"-reaction is common in Europe. The first time I was in the US, I burned half a roll of film photographing squirrels on campus because seeing them run around was so mind blowing.

Its really hard to wrap my mind around the fact that 50% of all wildlife has disappeared within your (jacob) lifetime and pretty close to mine. Probably 40-45% within my life.

http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/prog ... on_crisis/
Scientists estimate we’re now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the background rate, with literally dozens going extinct every day [1]. It could be a scary future indeed, with as many as 30 to 50 percent of all species possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century [2].
