So, there’s a rule of behavior that goes like this: Never do anything that you don’t want your mother to read in on page one above the fold in the local newspaper.

November 12th, 2017

Oddly enough, I’m reading Mark Forsyth’s The Elements of Eloquence—Secrets of the Perfect Turn of Phrase and on Friday I read chapter 11: Hypotaxis and Parataxis (and Polysyndeton and Asyndeton). Forsyth wrote: There’s nothing wrong with parataxis. It’s good, simple, plain, clean-living, hard-working, up-bright-and-early English. Wham. Bam. Thank you, ma’am. “Orwell liked it. Hemingway liked […]

In 1954, James Olds and Peter Milner conducted an experiment with rats whose brains were wired to stimulate the pleasure center. The rats could choose to press lever A, and get a food pellet, or lever B, and get a shot of pleasurable feelings in their tiny brains. Pleasure beat out food and the rats […]
