Bill-Gates-Has-a-New-Favorite-Book

We’ve mentioned a handful of books Bill Gates has recommended in the past, a collection meant to inspire and challenge those of us looking to put our stamp on this world. Well, if you’ve made your way through the laundry list of reads the former Microsoft man put forth, consider his latest recommendation, which just so happens to be his new favorite book of all time. Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, which can be pre-ordered now, is Gates’s new favorite book. He made the remarks on his site, explaining that the book uses historic trends to chart progress and to show when humanity has been at its best. That means this isn’t some frou-frou meditation on what it means to be good; it’s a deep dive into why certain things lead us to be good. It will also make you believe in the world again if you’ve lost hope. Our pre-order is in already.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
