Speaking at the most recent EG conference, author, philosopher, prankster and journalist A.J. Jacobs talks about the year he spent living biblically -- following the rules in the Bible as literally as possible.
Immersing himself in alternate lifestyles and long, hilarious experiments (usually with himself the guinea pig), writer A.J. Jacobs tests the limits of behavior, customs, culture, knowledge -- and his wife's sense of humor.
This is a fascinating TED Talk - there's some I don't agree with (beginning with his basic presupposition...) but it is fun to watch - and very insightful at times.
Would love to hear your thoughts...
