Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. If you're feeling a bit off today, check out this compilation of meditation and yoga-related apps in an article titled "Meditation Apps That'll Keep You From Losing Your Mind". Some of the apps featured include Headspace (one of my favorite meditation apps), Whil, Stop, Breathe & Think, and Mindbody.

2. It seems that the more educated people are about civil asset forfeiture, the less likely they are to support it. In fact, nearly 1 in 10 people polled in Utah and Florida knew someone personally who had property or cash stolen legally by police without being charged with any crime. For those of you interested in learning more about asset forfeiture, check out this resource. And bear this in mind next time you see a cop—in almost all cases, they have the ability to rob, shoot, or kill you with only the slimmest chance of facing any legal repercussions for their actions.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
