  1. Thompson on qz.com: How I made sure all 12 of my kids could pay for college themselves
  2. Morgan Housel at fool.com explains that he learned how stupid we really are (with a particular focus on investing). His closing sentence made me smile: ‘I’ve learned that “do nothing” is the best advice for almost everyone almost all the time.’
  3. Jennifer Wallace at WSJ summarizes a study that shows that letting children do household chores helps them achieve good relationships as well as academic and early career success.
  4. Al Kavadlo shows deadlift alternatives for bodyweight training. Back lever and back bridge were not on my radar in particular.
  5. Wade Pfau has published a new paper about variable spending strategies for retirees. Summary on his blog here and further analysis with a Singapore twist on investmentmoats.com.
