Happy Saturday, y'all!
This week we’re covering the Neuralink, night surfing, and Wendy’s savage Twitter feed, among other great stuff. 
We’re also introducing a cool new feature to Daveslist. At the bottom of this issue you’ll see a thumbs up and thumbs down. I’d really love it if you’d click one of them to indicate whether or not you enjoyed the issue, and now you can leave comments as well! That way we can all make Daveslist better each week!
Let’s get it on…

Neuralink and the Brain's Magical Future
This is simply the best thing you will read this week. Grab a cup of coffee and settle into your most comfortable chair, you’re about to get a lot smarter. Seriously, read this one. And then share it.
First Class Vs. Last Class? Airlines Bolster Premium Cabin, Skimp on Economy
Airlines have been in the news a lot lately. United blew it again when they kicked a couple off a flight who were on their way to their wedding. Yikes. At issue there was the couple’s attempt to take Economy Plus seats when they were only ticketed for Economy class. 
The major airlines have figured out that there is a massive demographic divide in their passengers, and to take advantage of that they’re making their First and Business Class cabin more luxurious while transforming Economy into something resembling a Calcutta bus station. Unfortunately it’s a symptom of a much larger problem…
America is Regressing into a Developing Nation for Most People
This is the thing that concerns me more than anything else today. A large middle class, and economic mobility within that middle class, is vital to a nation’s long term health and success. More and more each day, however, America is becoming an 80/20 kind of deal. MIT Economics professor Peter Temin explains why here. 
'Hobbit' species did not evolve from ancestor of modern humans, research finds
It’s looking more and more like Homo floresiensis (the “hobbit” people of Indonesia) are not a modern human species (Joe Rogan will be so disappointed). So Flores Man is a distant cousin of modern humans, likely sharing our Homo habilis ancestor from ~2.5 million years ago, but not our Homo erectus ancestor from ~1.9 million years ago. Still, Flores Man was a clever and persistent species who used tools and lasted until 50,000 or so years ago, so we definitely walked the same Earth.
Meet the Helicopter That's More Expensive Than the F-35
This is just an incredible piece of machinery. I was a Huey guy in the Marines, so we naturally spent a lot of time in tandem with the CH-53 guys. The E-model was all the rage back then because it added a third engine and the lifting capability was like nothing we’d ever seen before. This new K-model takes that up a few more notches. Imagine the size of a Humvee, then imagine something that can lift two of them and still fly 100 mph.
The Nightmare Scenario for Florida’s Coastal Homeowners
The water is rising. There is no longer any debate about it. The question now is how to deal with the eventual economic collapse it will cause in South Florida. The mayor of Coral Gables imagines that a sailboat mast scraping a bridge will cause the first domino to fall. But it might already be too late.
It’s not just Florida, either. Here in Louisiana the governor declared a state of emergency this week because we’re losing a football field worth of land to the rising tide every hour now.
Wendy's and Hardee's Battled on Twitter and Wendy's Got Blocked
Whomever runs the Twitter account for Wendy’s is a straight savage who won’t hesitate to take somebody out at the knees. Hardees learned that the hard way this week. You come at the king, you best not miss. 
Why being grumpy at work is good for you
Most people are surprised to learn that I’m a Pessimist by nature. I’m not a pessimist in the mopey “glass half empty” sense of the word, I’m a capital-P pessimist in the philosophical Arthur Schopenhauer “life is a poorly executed practical joke” sense of the word. Based on this article, that might explain why I’m so damned productive at work. Also why perennially happy people freak me out.
It’s a Nice Night for Surfing. Beware of Sharks.
Definitely the coolest thing I saw all week. Night surfing used to be a rare pleasure for us when I lived in San Diego. We had a spot in Oceanside with a sandbar offshore a bit, and on a cloudless night with a full moon you could pull off an epic session. Under-board LED lighting is something we would have gone nuts for.
That’s it for this week, y'all. I hope you enjoyed this week’s links. Please do me a favor and give this issue a thumbs up or a thumbs down below this text, and as always feel free to share far and wide.
Have a fantastic weekend, stay safe, and I’ll see you next Saturday!
