In case you missed all the credit card pumping in the past few days, the “hot” credit cards are all the Southwest cards (three at 60k points and one at 80k points for signing up) and apparently the Amex Business Green card has a new sign up bonus of…earning 3 points per dollar for a few categories for spend up to $50k. As always, TBB staff and hungry interns really appreciate if you use the TBB credit card links, thank you!
Interested in hiking? How about hiking to Mount Olympus in Greece then! Here is mi familia in the mountain of Gods…which I could see from my back yard when growing up (well, not exactly but close!). Obviously, this was a long time ago!
I like this series at Travel Codex. Or maybe I just like the location: Four Days Exploring in Bhutan.

Beware of this! An expert on human blind spots gives advice on how to think. Heard of the Dunning-Kruger effect? I had no idea that Dunning is a professor at the University of Michigan! Oh, what is the Dunning-Kruger effect?
That’s where people of low ability — let’s say, those who fail to answer logic puzzles correctly — tend to unduly overestimate their abilities.
We often feel more confident about a skill or topic than we really should. But at the same time, we’re often unaware of our overconfidence.
You can not believe how many investing geniuses I have come across my career 😉
