Satchel Paige's Six Rules for Life

Just finished The Unwritten Rules of Baseball. Here's a classic from Satchel Paige:

Satchel Paige's six rules for life:

  1. Avoid fried meats, which angry up the blood;
  2. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts;
  3. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move;
  4. Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful.
  5. Avoid running at all times.
  6. Don't look back, something may be gaining on you.

Deleted the video immediately.

Colorizing classic photographs

The colorized images do seem more emotive to my eye. They seem to have more depth and presence. So what is it about B&W photos that we sometimes describe as preferable? The lack of these things?
