How to Make Your Netflix Time More Productive

Readers of this blog will know I’ve been learning Spanish for a few years now. The best way to do this is to travel or live in Spanish-speaking countries. That’s the Konami Code of learning languages. However, since most people don’t have the ability to just up and go, I wrote an article sharing some tips on how you can use Netflix for language learning.

You can find that article over at Forge. I’d love if you check it out, clap for it with your Medium account, and share if you found it useful. Thanks!!

Readers of this blog may also remember my article The Colonization of Mount Everest, and the Nepalese climber Nimsdai. Nims has safely completed his goal of climbing all the 8,000-meter peaks within seven months—a massive achievement and a new World Record. Good on you, Nims.

In Daniel news, ice climbing season is underway. Notched my first day of the season despite 70 degree temps on the Front Range. It felt right. Colorado is wonderful in many ways, as always.

Hasta pronto!

Why Brexit is Impossible

I weighed in on British politics over on Medium today. Feel free to go check it out if you’re curious about the Brexit clusterfuck. I am not reproducing the whole piece here because I assume most of my audience doesn’t care.

Here’s the Cliff Notes:


There are two simple options:

  • Britain will leave the EU without a deal (a.k.a “No Deal Brexit”)
  • The UK will never leave the EU

These are the only options remaining. Although the UK Parliament recently voted to make it “illegal” to leave the EU without a dealthey themselves have refused to approve the only deal possible.

British lawmakers are still pretending a better deal is possible, when anyone who has dedicated a few moments to think about the problems realises: there is no “better deal.”British lawmakers are still pretending a better deal is possible, when anyone who has dedicated a few moments to think about the problems realises: there is no “better deal.”British lawmakers are still pretending a better deal is possible, when anyone who has dedicated a few moments to think about the problems realises: there is no “better deal.”
