Nassim Nicholas Taleb on drinking

A bunch of drinkers who refuse to be identified as Jonathan Perez (left) and Alexander T. Magno (right) at a now-defunct watering hole in Quezon City.

    while sleeping.

  5. And since cellphones have been  brought up: Stewardesses onboard trips –
    stewardesses, yes, that’s what they call themselves – would do well to

  6. ask passengers to put their cellphones on silent mode during the trip.
    Hearing cellphones go off can ruin perfectly good B-movies shown onboard
