Verschlimmbesserung: An improvement that makes something worse.
Doch: An expression for indicating an outcome occurred that was counter to the supplied evidence. Loosely translates to, “although I thought otherwise.” Even more delightfully – it can be and is used sarcastically.

On Friday May 16th @ 3pm I’ll be discussing burnout at the monthly meeting of Lean Startup Twin Cities.
We’ll be covering the early signs, techniques to avoid it, and ways to bounce back from it.

“Don’t collect data. If you know everything about yourself, you know everything. There is no use burdening yourself with a lot of data. Once you understand yourself, you understand human nature and then the rest follows.” – Kurt Gödel, A Logical Journey, MIT Press, 1996
reminds me of the Greek gnōthi seauton.
Today, April 5, I planted 6 hops rhizomes (2 each of Chinook, Willamette, Cascade) on the south side of the house, a few inches down in a compost/manure mixture and covered in mulch.
This is my third attempt at growing hops at home. The first year nothing came up. Last year, half the rhizomes broke through the earth only to be destroyed time and time again by a mix of lawnmower, gale force winds, and japanese beetle. I feel much more confident to combat all 3 this year.
