But like many things found on the internet that seem too weird to be true, the Moon Melon is just that. The exotic fruit has made quite a recent stir, thought the circulating image was reported to be a couple of digitally altered slices of plain ol' watermelon by The Daily Dot in July of 2012.

Entrepreneurship, Minimalism and Travel with Colin Wright Entrepreneurship, Minimalism and Travel with Colin Wright I’ve got a new book on shelves today, entitled Ordovician. It’s a time-travel adventure featuring a history nerd athlete from the future (named Ordovician) who takes on the roles of historical figures to compete in the only sport that still exists within his utopian society. It’s fun. It’s also free on Amazon, today through Thursday, January 16. I’d love it if you’d pick up a copy and give it a read. And I’d love you forever if you’d leave me a review.
What is It’s a site by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits. It’s about minimalism, and why it’s important today. It’s about stuff, and how it has come to overwhelm us. It’s about distractions and commitments and a neverending task list. » about » about

Everything in an essay must be subdued to that end.

How to Be Adventurous How to Be Adventurous Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.– Howard Thurman Life is meant to be an adventure. If your life is anything less than interesting and inspiring to other people, you’re doing something wrong.
Radical Honesty Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom.– Thomas Jefferson Deception is cancerous. The first mutation of a truth charts a path to colonize its host. One fib demands another, two lies need the proof of two more, until eventually even the most innocent half-truth metastasizes into a falsehood requiring surgery. A lie is a deliberate attempt to fake the nature of reality. So a scientist who reaches a flawed conclusion through an error in her experimentation method may hint at incompetence, but she is not lying.
