That's so true! I once listened for hours an engineer talk about wood-cutting technologies in Sweden, how we're not really doing it right in Canada, and how he set up a paper-processing plant in SE Asia to help develop communities. He worked 30 years in the industry and it was fascinating to listen to. Who knew a conversation about trees and paper could be so interesting.

Yeah. Surrounding myself with hard working people has been key. It's a common adage that you're the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most. And it's been really true. I've become ruthless about ditching negative people from my circle of friends. My friend once said he likes to surround himself with as many diametrically different people as possible, so you're pulled into all directions. Hang out with stock brokers, shamans, artists, nurses, old people, kids and you're gonna be a vastly more interesting person than average.

For sure! I meant that mostly as a joke. It feels like there are breaking news about this administration every 30 minutes.

I can't keep up with the news anymore... Can we please do a weekly roundup of Trump-related scandals?

Being surrounded by inspiring people. It's surprising how much the energy around me affects me - a lot more than I'd like sometimes.

Just released a video of this project we did with an artist friend, and it was super awesome to see him work. I hope my video does it justice:

Since I can't be travelling ALL THE TIME, I was thinking of making more art-related videos like that too in the future. Give my channel a bit of a unique angle with culture and travel meshed? I'll try that out in my next trip to Berlin and see how it works out.

" we showed that either walking backwards or holding the cup with the claw-hand posture led to significant changes in the driving force frequency spectrum, suggesting a method to suppress resonance." SCIENCE!

Or drink coffee out of a wine glass I suppose?

Yeah already paying for a regular gym and a ski pass. The bouldering will have to wait for a bit. The one thing that would make me crack would be if a gym opened really close. They’re all about 45mins away right now so I doubt I’d go very often.

I’m glad I took up the skill in university. I think rock climbing looks really daunting from the outside, but all you really need is some shoes and chalk and you’re good to go!

Reminds me of the time I went to the chess party with I guess user_inactiveted now.

Bunch of chess geniuses playing 4 people rotating speed chess, and the losers take a shot of vodka. Some of those guys were completely plastered, and I still didn't stand a chance against anyone. Looked like fun!

I was just watching how this dude built a boat basically out of beach garbage:

(it's a 9 part video series)

And i think the next one he built, he only spent about 200$ or plywood and fibreglass.

He's a nut, but I love watching him build stuff.

I've seen your Instagram stories about gymnastics and they're really dope! As someone who does a lot of social media (mostly for work), I think it's ok to be happy when you see things are getting attention. As long as it's not your main or only source of validation. It you're doing something fun and great, why not share it!? I think the problem starts when you start manufacturing garbage content, drama and share bullshit just to stay "relevant".

I LOVE bouldering! It's so much fun, and progress is super fast at the beginning. I used to go a lot because we had a free gym in University and finding a belay partner is a pain. Now that i have to pay 20$/day - or a bouldering membership I go less. Since I don't do it regularly I don't have the grip strength to last very long so it feels like a waste of money unless i'm hanging out with friends.
