Don’t just pay people compliments; give them living eulogies. Tell them exactly how great they are, in how many ways. Embarrass them. Here’s a funny thing I have learned by being just a little bit internet famous: it doesn’t matter how many times you hear them, the words “You are amazing, and here’s why” never get old. They do not go out of style. You will be wearing them to your 80th birthday party, along with a dazzling smile.

Be kind to someone today
Via Bloomberg's Megan McArdle, some really good advice:
Thanks to this, I've taken a few minutes to write sustained praise for a few of my friends and loved ones and it's been fun.
(The rest of her advice is quite good as well. I really liked this one: "You should never, ever argue with your spouse about anything that could be solved with a proper application of money or ingenuity.")
