I did not know @amazon had a sense of humor.
I really enjoyed doing this interview with @TheReadLists. I mean, how often do you get to talk about LSD and the reading habits of aliens? thereadinglists.com/daniel-gilbert…
Glad to see a new generation re-discovering a masterpiece (Hounds of Love) by one of the most brilliant artists of her time (Kate Bush). twitter.com/i/events/15312…
Funny story. @Delta cancels my flight & issues e-credit. I use it to buy new ticket. @Delta cancels new flight but won't issue e-credit because (drum roll please) "we do not issue e-credits for tickets purchased with e-credits." Takes work to keep that #WorstAirline title.
Congratulations to my pal @JenSeniorNY on this well-deserved honor. All joy, all fun! twitter.com/PulitzerPrizes…
I'm stunned. @lufthansa actually bans all Jews from flying because some Jews did not obey the mask rules? “All have to pay,” says the Lufthansa rep in this video. Why is this incident receiving no coverage by mainstream media? Where is the statement by Lufthansa’s management? twitter.com/HaMeturgeman/s…
“What I discovered is that to the extent that you put your whole self into almost any task — even if it's washing the dishes — it stops being work and it starts becoming play,” says @DanTGilbert. Find out how his philosophy has made him a better professor: freak.ws/3Kw54GA

Great fun talking with my friend ⁦@StevenDLevitt⁩ — and finding out that he holds me responsible for his divorce. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/peo…
Do the best performers give the best performance advice? Not necessarily -- they just give more of it! Proud to be the et al on @levari_david 's new Psych Science paper. twitter.com/levari_david/s…
Psychologists interested in science communication will want to check this out. twitter.com/davenuss79/sta…
This remarkable new open-access database will be an unparalleled resource for scientists interested in unraveling the mysteries of human conversation. twitter.com/guscooney/stat…
My Notebook column this week, on the need to undertake the effortful psychological process that @DanTGilbert describes as "unbelieving", especially when it comes to our own tribe... ft.com/content/9bd2c7…

Hey @peacockTV, here's an idea: When you send email to verify a sign-up (which in this case is a fraud), your "please let us know" link shouldn't just link to your generic help page.
This book is provocative, smart, and delightful - though if you’ve read any of Paul's other books you already knew that. twitter.com/paulbloomatyal…

Statistical thinking does not come naturally. This article does a nice job of explaining how we should think about the statistics regarding breakthrough infections. apple.news/A_WYsNWgJR9SeA…
Just now… Wife: I could not love you more. Me: What if I threw away this cigar? Wife: I would love you more. This is what Thomas Huxley called “the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.”
⁦.⁦@JenSeniorNY⁩ proves once again that she is one of the greatest nonfiction writers of our time. A deep, insightful, and moving story about love, about loss, and about the fact that there is no third thing. theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…
I've never been on (in?) Clubhouse before, but the chance to chat with my collaborator, former student, TED superstar, and all around excellent human Liz Dunn @DunnHappyLab was too tempting to say no. twitter.com/BestLiveAudio/…
When it comes to COVID, you have two choices: 1) get the disease naturally and run the known risk of death or serious illness, or 2) get vaccinated (which is so much safer) There are very few people who will simply avoid infection altogether. So choose option (2).

Everything ⁦@michaelpollan⁩ writes is smart and interesting. This essay is no exception. nytimes.com/2021/07/09/opi…
I’ve lost a colleague and a dear friend. A rare combination of a big brain and big heart. He taught me more about Renaissance choral music than anyone I've ever known. “Come to grief for ever / Come to me tears day and night” (William Byrd, 1580) twitter.com/PsychHarvard/s…
The article is nice, but the title is genius. nytimes.com/2021/06/22/sci…
This is great news. It means I only have to kill 23 people. Many are good friends so it will be easy to get close. @TEDchris twitter.com/TEDpartners/st…
What have you learned during the pandemic? @DanTGilbert realized he doesn't like shaving. And that has been the least profound lesson from the last 18 months. Are you looking for a valuable lesson? Join us on June 24th: bit.ly/3frTPSe

If you are a progressive who thinks that "free speech" is just a right wing ruse, here's an example of how limits on free speech harm your side as well: thefire.org/investigation-…
A fascinating essay by the always fascinating @aa_marsh: Everyone Thinks Americans Are Selfish. They’re Wrong. nytimes.com/2021/05/26/opi…
I am grateful to @Yale for awarding me an honorary doctorate today, and humbled to be in such extraordinary company yale2021.yale.edu/honorary-degre…. But please note: This won't change who I root for at the Harvard-Yale game, nor will it cause me to say "for whom I root."
From a journal editor’s rejection of a 1963 paper: “Such speculations make interesting talk at cocktail parties, but it is not the sort of thing that ought to be published under serious scientific aegis.” The paper was the first to propose the modern theory of plate tectonics.
If you are a Laurie Anderson fan, her first (free) lecture was wonderful and you shouldn’t miss her second. If you’re not a Laurie Anderson fan, you should probably fix that. @OnlyAnExpert twitter.com/OnlyAnExpert/s…
At 16:30 Eastern today I will have been alive for exactly 2 billion seconds. I've had this in my calendar for more than a decade. Why track only your years? This calculator gives you many additional moments to celebrate. timeanddate.com/date/birthday.…
You care about immigrants? The day before a white supremacist killed 23 people in El Paso (claiming there was a “Hispanic invasion of Texas”) you mailed a letter urging Republicans to “DEFEND TEXAS NOW” from immigrants & “take matters into our own hands.” twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/…

I am often asked for writing advice. So I have assembled my personal "Rules for Good Writing."
The US Justice Department is accusing an American marine who was held for 4 years in an Iranian prison of treason. Proud of my brother, Scott Gilbert (who got American prisoner Allen Gross released after 5 years in a Cuban prison) for defending him. youtube.com/watch?v=lwOMXb…
Why is thinking fun thoughts so hard? One reason (we suggest): we pick the wrong topics to think *about*. It helps to daydream about topics that are both pleasant (“cake!”) AND meaningful (“graduation!”). Now at Emotion, with @NickButtrick @TimWilson18 @RemyFurrer @DanTGilbert

Many people -- from Science to Jimmy Kimmel -- are commenting on our new PNAS paper showing that conversations almost never end when people want them to, but this one by @irisnomikou and @alefasulo is the best I've seen so far. theconversation.com/only-2-of-conv…
You know you've arrived when @JimmyKimmelLive discusses your latest PNAS paper. Hey @StephenAtHome where were you? I thought we were friends? youtu.be/-H4BBXt9GvM
Conversations almost never end when everyone wants them to, rarely end when anyone wants them to, and the gap between what conversants want and get is about half the length of the conversation itself. New paper by @a_m_mastroianni in PNAS. pnas.org/content/118/10…
The incompetence of state government, not the weather, caused the power grid to collapse in Houston. What else could go wrong? Oh, wait a minute....
