Quit more

Why Quitting is Underrated:

This is the issue with grit. It can get you to stick to hard things that are worthwhile, but it can also get you to stick to hard things that are no longer worthwhile – like after your fibula snaps at mile eight. Throughout our lives, it turns out we are not very good listeners when the world tells us that we should stop.

There are a host of reasons why we ignore obvious signals to quit, not the least of which is that quitting has a nearly universal negative connotation. If someone called you a quitter, would you ever consider it a compliment?

Remember eWorld, Apple’s attempt at an ISP?

eWorld was an online service operated by Apple Inc. between June 1994 and March 1996. The services included email (eMail Center), news, software installs and a bulletin board system (Community Center). Users of eWorld were often referred to as “ePeople.”

Based on a similar service from America Online, eWorld was expensive compared to other services and not well marketed, and failed to attract a high number of subscribers. The service was only available on Apple’s Macintosh and Apple IIGS and had limited support on the Newton MessagePad handheld devices, though a PC version had been planned.

The history of the Margarita

One of the most popular stories about the origin of the Margarita comes from Tijuana, Mexico, where it is said that the drink was first mixed in the 1930s or 1940s by a bartender named Francisco “Pancho” Morales. According to this story, Morales was experimenting with different cocktail recipes when he came up with the Margarita. He mixed together tequila, lime juice, and a touch of orange liqueur, and served it in a salt-rimmed glass, creating a classic recipe that is still popular today.
