Oh god, drums are the best. There's one drum beat that pretty much opens up the ability to play most beats once you get the hang of it.

It's the drumming equivalent of patting your head with one hand and rubbing your belly in circles with the other without them affecting each other:

(High hat)- x---x---x---x---x---x---x---x---

(snare)---- ----o-------o-------o-------o---

(kick drum) O-------O-O-----O-------O-O-----

(drum notation is my own because the alternative idea I had was to beat box it and upload it to soundcloud)

It just occurred to me that I've never seen you lose at chess before. The moves that gave you the most centipawn loss look so sensible at first glance. I need to start taking chess more seriously.

"How to Win Friends and Influence People" is pretty much a book of stories by the author about all the times he chose to not correct people when they were wrong. Not that you shouldn't correct people, but know that you can make a shit ton of money by writing a book about all the times you didn't correct people.
