Why Not Start the Weekend On Wednesday? →
jingc: We earn—this is a very rough average—twice what our parents did when they were our age. When today’s teenagers are in their 40s, there is no reason why they shouldn’t decide to enjoy their increased prosperity by working less instead of earning more.

Deep Thinking Can Make You Fat →
jingc: According to this article, 45 minutes of intellectual work while sitting uses only three more calories than the same amount of time spent sitting and resting. However, despite the low energy cost of mental work, the students spontaneously consumed 203 more calories after summarizing a text and 253 more calories after the computer tests.
