Columbus Rationality

It may not be necessary to stockpile resources for the Zombie-pocalypse yet, but are you prepared for likely disasters? Join us this week as Jeff Dubin explains what disasters we should be prepared for and how to do so reasonably.

 

Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is some swearing and discussion of mature issues.

    Please consider being ready to briefly describe a disaster or crisis you have experienced, and to answer these questions:
    -What were you glad to have? (tangible items or intangible, e.g. skills)
    -What did you wish you had?
    -How, if at all, could you have been better prepared?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
