I found two identical packs of Skittles, among 468 packs with a total of 27,740 Skittles
"On 12 January of this year, I started buying boxes of packs of Skittles. This past week, “only” 82 days, 13 boxes, 468 packs, and 27,740 individual Skittles later, I found the identical 2.17-ounce packs"

In picture: All 468 packs of Skittles, arranged top to bottom, in columns left to right. Each pair of columns corresponds to a box of 36 packs. The two identical packs are circled in red.

The diligence of this researcher is admirable.
Investor Meeting Seating
"Surrounding Demo Day, we went to a lot of investor meetings. Such conversations are usually well-choreographed and methodical but their physical conditions can be variable and random.

The following will massively impact the flow of a meeting:
1. Furniture
2. Room layout
3. Where people sit

Before I continue, I should mention that I think a lot about seating. I have been documenting my findings for you.

Maybe I think about it too much."

I love that people like this exist.

"Voter turnout higher than in many richer, more developed countries is the result of the Indias determination to reach every single voter, no matter the practical challenges.

Whether at the top of the Himalayas or in the middle of a forest, it ensures no one has to travel over 2 km to get to the polls.

It even has a budget for elephants to carry machines to hard-to-reach areas."

🍽David Chang’s Unified Theory of Deliciousness
"Isomorphisms are concepts that can be expressed in different ways while retaining their core form.
If you can recognize that, you’ll blow people’s minds with a paradox they can taste: the new and the familiar woven together in a strange loop."
