- "Always have three ways to do something." Magicians tend to have backup plans if someone reveals the secrets behind a trick. KR told a story when someone revealed the secrets behind a trick performed by the magician David Copperfield, but Copperfield knew how to perform that trick in multiple ways, so on stage he could show that his secrets hadn't really been revealed.
- KR has interviewed several entrepreneurs (see them all at Foundation), including Elon Musk (Tesla Motors, SpaceX, PayPal), Jack Dorsey (Twitter), and Evan Williams (Blogger). One of the conclusions from the interviews is that these successful entrepreneurs have surrounded themselves with people that are smarter and more talented than they are. If the people around you are are not contributing you have to find out why, and if they don't begin to contribute they have to find another job.
- "If you are buying a stock you should forget about it for five years." KR seems to be a fan of Warren Buffett and KR is trying to apply the philosophies by Buffett when he's investing in stocks. One of the stocks KR owns today is Tesla Motors. He argued that the car company could become an energy company if Tesla Motors begin to rent their charging infrastructure to other car companies.
- "Invest in laziness." KR has also invested in Amazon and argued that people become more and more comfortable, thus they prefer to buy stuff on the Internet.
- KR bought an electroshock weapon from TASER International. The weapon is a non-lethal gun used for incapacitating a person by administering electric shock aimed at disrupting superficial muscle functions.
- KR recommended the site theory11 where you can buy magic tricks from magicians and products related to magic tricks.
- TF recommended the site EDC (EveryDay Carry) that shows photos of which products people carries with them during the day.
- Both TF and KR recommended the book Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert. The audio version of The Graveyard Book, and the books A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, The Foundation Series, Motherless Brooklyn were also recommended.
- KR recommended the board game The Heroes of Ismia.
