Ruk Digest 10/16


Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1.  Hear The Story Of The Man Who Brought Us Modern Pain Relief

In this 14 minute TED Talk you'll find out about the life of John J. Bunica who devoted his career to studying pain and is known as the founding father of the study of pain management. 

 Bunica was an interesting man who spent many years touring for the circus as a wrestler in order to pay his way through school and medical school. 

Check out his Wikipedia for more info. 

2.  Never Miss Your Deliveries With This Product

It's a special doorbell that is paired to an app that you download; when the doorbell is rung, you get a call through the app, thus you don't have to be home to accept delivery of what you ordered. 

One caveat - I'm sure it will be super annoying/confusing if someone ding dong ditches and a call is made. 

3.  Loot Crate - Get "Comic- Con In A Box"

A monthly subscription to get monthly boxes of geek stuff delivered to you. 

Loot Crate grew 66,000% since 2012 to become a $160 million dollar business. 

Yes, that's correct, 66,000%.

Thought of the Week

"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.

I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are.

I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive."

- Oriah Mountain Dreamer
