Stumbling on Happiness

"

Jesse: I think so. I read this study where they followed people who had won the lottery, and people who had become paraplegics, right. I mean you’d think that…you know, one extreme is gonna make you…euphoric, and the other suicidal. But the study shows that after about 6 months…

Céline: Uhum?

Jesse: Right…as soon as people got used to their new situation, they were more or less the same.

'Twerk' Sashays Into Oxford's Online Dictionary, 'Srsly'

oupacademic:

What do jorts, cake pops, and twerking have in common? All have been added to Oxford Dictionaries Online! Mark Memmott of NPR’s The Two-Way shows off his new vocabulary.

An old phrase “pixie cut” and a very new word “MOOC” were added last month. Interesting.

http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2013/08/new-words-august-2013/

I thought pixie cut has drawn people’s interest because of Carey Mulligan and Anne Hathaway’s recent works, but Google Trends suggests that Beyonce is the top influencer.

"For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible."

quote by Stuart Chase (American economist and engineer)

http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/167757-for-those-who-believe-no-proof-is-necessary-for-those

I heard it for the first time in an episode of TV show “Criminal Minds” and I liked it. “Yes, that’s really true!”

I didn’t even know of him and zapped around through the articles about him.

I couldn’t find the source of the quote, but I found that “New Deal”, the name of Franklin Roosevelt’s economic program in the United States, is said to be borrowed from the title of Chase’s book “A New Deal”.

There is a big chasm between those who believe and those who don’t.

I will remember not to try to prove something to people in an attempt to make them believe.
