First up, Ten Cent Beer Night Was a Total Disaster, the true story of a 1974 Cleveland Indians game at which beers were sold at ten cents apiece. As the title of this video implies, it was a total disaster. 


Next, Hidden Brain's "You 2.0, Our Pursuit of Happiness" is a podcast interview with happiness researcher Dr. Elizabeth Dunn. She discusses how our brains process experiential and material purchases. Although it's commonly thought that experiential purchases are the ultimate way to buy happiness, she points out that spending money on things can provide great ROI as well.
