You can't really comprehend how bad social conditioning really is…
Being interesting means knowing a lot of shit (I know you be ‘mirin my vocab). Part of that is from living life and part of it is acquired through reading.
I only read non fiction books, preferably short stories that gives you a new perspective or new factual information that can be stored. I have a rather short attention span. Best examples are Malcolm Gladwell books and also Freakonomics. I love that stuff. Knowing how the world works is amazing. Its funny when I review my recorded conversations with girls, I notice awesome sound bytes that appears to magically come out of nowhere but in reality, it comes from the books I read. Stop reading stupid shit on forums from dumb 15 year old newbs and read from authors who have 1000+ reviews on Amazon. I know this is crazy, but I find these authors to be much more entertaining and they actually proof read their grammar and spelling!
Current books I’m reading (actually listening to the audiobook because I live in my car)
