Contributions to the world

#1: Making my 70-year-old aunt cry with laughter
(I share this honour with my dad.)

#2: Helping people in libraries, shops and homes reach for the high shelves
(Happened even in Germany; I was quite flattered.)

#3: Making complex subjects accessible to laymen
(E.g. healthcare, economics. Seems like more needs to be done - one of my young students wanted to deny miners voting rights for central bankers because he thinks central bank policies are too difficult for the former to comprehend.)

  1. Love that you helped someone reach something in Germany!
