zesty pickles

SEE Malcolm Gladwell explain the existence of zesty pickles, among other things, and why they make us happy. 
READ his recent profile in NyMag, wherein he discusses his latest book, Outliers:
"Great people aren't so great. Their own greatness is not the salient fact about them. It's the kind of fortunate mix of opportunities they've been given..."
It is people like this man that brighten the dead-brained nights of semester's approaching end. I fear that too much doing has made me forget how to think, and I plow forward towards the glow at the end of the corridor, dreaming of an afternoon without agenda, lying on the carpet, wrapped up in a flurry of words.
