It can be scary to accelerate when you are learning to ride a bicycle. This is what makes the ride successful. If you take it too slowly, then you will fall.

Mountain biking follows a similar principle. A natural reaction to an obstacle in front of you — a stone, a log — is to slow down. You will fall over if you slow down.

Fear can also cause you to slow down your turns when skiing or snowboarding. This will only increase your chances of falling. You have to overcome your fear to get down the mountain safely.

We want to do our due diligence slowly and methodically before we take action. Before making a final decision, we want to conduct a bit more research. We are waiting to see what happens before making a decision. This approach seems to us responsible and safe.

Making big decisions requires a certain amount of caution and consideration. But “sensible prudence” is often just a mask of fear. In an attempt to reduce risk, it can actually lead to a bigger danger. It’s often said that being careful can kill.

If you wait too long before committing to a relationship, the romance will fizzle out.

If you are slow to capitalize on an idea, someone else will beat you to the punch.

If you overthink your invitation, it will ruin the fun.

If you spend too much time debating a decision, the opportunity will slip away.

The most dangerous thing to do when you have momentum is to brake. Leaning into the wind is safer. Fortune favors those who are quick. Fortune favours the bold. Fate does not always smile on the cautious.

Odds & Ends: April 12, 2024

A vintage metal box labeled

Why I hope to die at 75 by Ezekiel Emanuel. In recent years, there has been much attention paid to the idea of extending life expectancy. Oncologist Dr. Emmanuel is a bioethicist and has a strong, contrary position. He hopes to die by 75. He argues that many people believe they will be the exception to aging rules, and remain physically agile and mentally sharp until their death. But as the capacity-robbing, burden-on-loved-ones-increasing toll of age eventually comes for all, Emanuel would rather go out before he falls apart. He doesn’t plan to die at 75. But he will stop having preventative screenings, such as colonoscopies and cardiac stress tests, once he hits that age.

Flint and Tinder’s Vintage Slub Polo. One of my favorite clothing brands just released a line of polos, tees and tanks made from slub-cotton in the USA. I bought a navy blue polos. The fabric is thick and not as thin and gauzy like some slubs. Polo shirts are great for spring because they are so versatile. Dress them up or dress them down. Check out our guide on polo shirts.

William Manchester’s The Last Lion Trilogy. The best biography you will ever read. Manchester is a three-volume epic of 3,000 pages, which takes you through Winston Churchill’s life. It’s a fun and inspiring ride. You feel as though you are there, as Churchill grows up, struggles to find his political place, and leads the country through WWII. The Last Lion is a biography that’s close to being a page-turner. You know the outcome, so it’s difficult to call it enthralling. Manchester tragically died before he could finish the final volume. Another author completed it. The third volume is slightly less than the first two but still worth reading.

The Searchers. John Wayne delivers the most intense performance of his acting career in this John Ford film as Ethan Edwards. A man who vows revenge on the Comanche Raiders who killed his sister-in law and brother, and kidnapped two of their daughters. Wayne is a master at portraying a complex, conflicted man who wants revenge on the Comanche raiders that killed his sister-in-law and brother. He also kidnaps two of their daughters. The film has been beautifully shot. There are so many epic shots of the desert. The film’s pace is perfect. It doesn’t drag but it also doesn’t seem rushed.

Quote of the week

It would be a sin and a sulk against nature to not go and enjoy her bounty and rejoice with the heavens and the earth during the vernal season of the year, when the air is pleasant and calm.John Milton

4 Ways to Remove a Broken Light Bulb From a Socket

When the glass bulb breaks on incandescent bulbs, it can be difficult to remove them from the socket. With a little ingenuity you can solve this problem.

You might ask, “Why should I know how to remove a broken incandescent bulb when they’ve been phased out?” The U.S. did ban incandescent lights last year to encourage people to switch to LED bulbs. These are usually made of plastic, and do not break like the thin glass incandescents. There are still two reasons to be able to remove a broken bulb. You probably still use incandescent light bulbs around the house. You’ll need to know what to do if they ever break. Incandescent light bulbs used to illuminate your home’s rooms are now banned. However, bulbs for bug lamps and appliances that use incandescent lights remain legal. Even in the age LED bulbs, you may still need to replace a broken bulb.

We have shown you four different methods to remove a broken light bulb. Be sure to turn off the electricity before you try any of these methods. You don’t need to electrocute yourself. Put on heavy duty work gloves, and remove any remaining glass shards from the bulb to avoid cutting yourself. As you remove the bulb, keep your gloves on.

Omega Swatch Mission To Saturn MoonSwatch

Omega Swatch Moonswatch Saturn Review

Many reviews have already been published across the web about each and every one of the Omega MoonSwatch watches. However, having recently started building my collection of these unique timepieces, I still wanted to cover the ones I’ve purchased here on Bespoke Unit.

Accordingly, in this article, I’ll be covering the MoonSwatch Mission To Saturn relatively briefly and will allow the images I’ve taken to do most of the talking.

Below, I’ll also show the latest aftermarket band that I’ve purchased for this Mission To Saturn MoonSwatch. It’s made wearing the watch a lot more comfortable, and I am very satisfied with the comfort that this strap provides.

Before that, let’s take a look at the specifications of the Mission to Saturn, which are exactly the same as the Mission On Earth I recently covered except for the obvious differences in the color scheme and strap tone.

Swatch describes the tone of the MoonSwatch Mission To Saturn bioceramic case as beige. However, I think it is a bit more grey than beige.

The dial is marked by brown subregisters and a depiction of Saturn & its rings. The bezel insert is presented in the same brown tone, which I find is an excellent pairing for the beige/gray bioceramic.
