According to Wright, a virtue is what happens when you have trained yourself to behave in a certain way.  Wright says,
Permalink
This identity that occurs through formation, I think, is an integral part of what it means to be human and resonates clearly in the teaching of many of the world great religious traditions.  An escape from humanity as proposed by the I+ advocates would be a loss of this identity of formation and, as such, a loss of virtue.  I+ is the reduction of humanity to: Me, My, Mine.  It forsakes and abandons the prospect that what it means to be human involves learning how to best live in community.  It also eliminates the possibility that the best way to live out our humanity may be to live self-sacrificially.

Peleg Design Makes Eggs Fun with the YolkPig Egg Separator and the Arthur Egg Cup

I’m reposting this not as an endorsement but as a chastisement:Separating eggs is the easiest thing in the world, so buying a separator is stupid.I was *terrified* that I was going to do it wrong the first time I did it—which was just a few weeks ago—and ruin the recipe I was making. Instead I nailed it and felt like a badass. Which is silly because it is so fucking simple. Don’t deny yourself that feeling though: just go separate some eggs. Even if it’s just for fun.
