☝️ Upwarding #55: Thingamajigs, Saturn’s Rings Go Bye-Bye?, Crazy Blood Donations

Welcome to this week's Upwarding newsletter. My blog, with more in-depth content, can be found here.

Picture

Saturn is losing its rings, and a cosmic rain made up of ring material is constantly falling on the planet.  On the other hand, Mars will eventually gain a ring.

Mindfulness/Spirituality/Chill

Sensing the energy field around you?  Here’s an exercise for just that…

Health/Wellness

Donating a pint of blood will require you to consume an extra 650 calories to replace it. Which is about an hour and a half of hard exercise!

Taking this to the extreme:

The average American gains 0.8 pounds per year

If you donated every 8 weeks, you would burn 4200 calories per year, which is 1.2 pounds per year.  Assuming you don’t eat it back.  Might this solve America’s obesity problem?

Investing/Money

People want sustainable income so badly they are willing to do tax-suicidal things to do it.  Check out HNDL, which guarantees a payout of 7% and will just self-liquidate when they can’t generate the cash flow.  Don’t confuse consistent payments with low risk!
