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

1. Going through airport security is already annoying, and soon the TSA will separately screen all devices larger than a mobile phone for those flying within the country. The program has already been piloted at 10 airports and is now being implemented nationwide. Devices like laptops, tablets, e-readers, and handhold game consoles will fall under this category, but the TSA has not defined what "larger than a cell phone" actually means. As mobile phones increase in size, what will the TSA consider to be the upper limit on size? Although the definition is still not clearly defined, you can still expect to see this extra security theater in your local airport within the next few weeks and months.

2. Imagine Nietzsche, Epictetus, Buddha, and Schopenhauer playing a game of Sorry!, and you may arrive at the same conclusion as this comic. Remember: the roll of the dice you receive is not what's important; it's how you choose to react to it. In your own approach to life, which character do you most closely resemble?

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