This will lift you UP

One of the most important video series ever made (quote-anounceofsalt), and I agree.

If you like studies of people, as I do, watch this series starting from the beginning.

I make the entire series available here (need a desktop with 10gig of space).

The Up series is a series of documentary films produced by Granada Television for ITV that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. So far the documentary has had nine episodes spanning 56 years (one episode every seven years) all of which were broadcast on ITV, apart from the 6th episode which was broadcast on BBC One.

Social proof trumps best logic

Peer pressure always wins.

Wilt Chamberlain – easily one of the best basketball players of all time – was a terrible free throw shooter. Except for one season when he changed technique and scored more free throws in one game than anyone ever has. Then, crazily, he gave up the technique. Malcolm Gladwell explains why we often make the wrong decisions, in full awareness that they’re wrong. This story was adapted from Gladwell’s new podcast Revisionist History, which is produced by Panoply.

Age fluidity 

Why not if you can just change your gender. 

This is probably fake but it’s amusing fakery. 

Not Emile Ratelband, a 69-year-old who feels like he’s in his 40s. The Dutch pensioner is asking a court in his hometown of Arnhem, southeast of Amsterdam, to change his birth certificate so that it says he took his first breath on March 11, 1969, rather than on March 11, 1949.
