DRDB! 37: What's the Point If We Can't Have Fun?

Short one today because I am cruising the highways of Los Angeles and looking at apartments. At least I have a cool car and a good pair of sunglasses.

  1. What's the point if we can't have fun? (The Baffler)
    On the emergence of consciousness, and the purpose of playfulness (and how playfulness could be a purpose in itself).

  2. Your Dream Job Is a Myth (Slate)
    “Rather than thinking in terms of “dream jobs,” job seekers would do far better to look for ‘interesting possibilities’ and ‘openings I’d like to learn more about.’ These more-grounded frameworks, which preserve a healthy skepticism and leave the idealizing out of it, will keep your head out of the clouds.”

  3. The Highway Was Supposed to Save This City. Can Tearing It Down Fix the Sins of the Past? (Jalopnik)

  4. Please use proper citation when discussing bloodthirsty human/reptile chimeras (The Outline)
    Creepy Wikipedia is good.
