_____________________

If I die tomorrow, it was all a waste. Why? I never found love.

_____________________

Finding the right woman is like playing gin rummy.

_____________________

Which is waste: wasting your Superlike on a girl who you definitely don’t like or wasting it on a girl who you know is a bot?

_____________________

If you get on a winning streak early in life and you become successful, it’s pretty pompous and prideful to tell everyone else how to get on a winning streak. The people I respect are the ones who took some big beatings and then were able to pull it back together.

_____________________

My standards go way up when I’m on dating sites. If I don’t know the person then it requires a lot more interest from me to want to meet them.

_____________________

I think of you all the time. Who else would I think of?

_____________________

Life is very much like a dating site. You never know exactly who you’re being compared to.

_____________________

You want something real to happen. If it does, great! If it doesn’t, that’s where technique comes in.

_____________________

Every audition felt like my big break.

_____________________

The Notebook Paradox.

_____________________

I always aimed high. But I don’t think I ever had unrealistic standards. My standards were always grounded, and I was always humble and hard working.

_____________________

Make hay while the sun shines – you gotta get through those bottlenecks.

_____________________

The balance between being yourself and getting what you want.

_____________________

I spent 30 years building a great mind. Not a great bank account.

_____________________

I don’t have a problem with arranged marriage. Sounds like a great idea to me.

_____________________

I got 99 problems buuuuuut..,. well, yah, most of those problems are b*tches.

Everyone wants to hit that 1 in a million jackpot. But it’s much more difficult to avoid the 1 in a million mishap that’s constantly chasing you.

_____________________

Overthinker or genius?

_____________________

A lot of these big tech companies and social media companies are basically monopolies. This is a huge risk for the American people if the US government allows them to continue operating as such, especially when they are suppressing people & ideas they subjectively deem to be negative.

_____________________

I am a really nice person and a great listener. There has to be a way to monetize this. There is definitely demand for it in the market.

_____________________

Reason will win out over emotion. But in order to have reason, we need the facts.

_____________________

If a bias has merit (objectively or subjectively) then unconscious bias training is a counterproductive pursuit because it transforms the bias from a possibility to a certainty.

_____________________

Clearly not every possible element in the universe exist on planet earth. So the idea arises, perhaps our theory of what is technologically possible is limited because of what we have. Some suggest, for example, that space travel would advance tremendously with other elements.

_____________________

In 20-30 years when every person has a social media history that includes saying crazy and immature things, ppl will stop judging people for their past tweets. What we are seeing now is a clash in generations, a cultural transition where many still doesn’t understand the internet

_____________________

The “N” word confuses me. Black Americans use it in daily, public speech, and yet if someone who isn’t black uses the word (even in private speech or as a joke etc) then they are demonized for it. This sounds like the poster-child example of finding reasons to be offended.

_____________________

Attention to detail? Or attention to excellence?

_____________________

If something that is true has been twisted and used in the past for nefarious purposes, does that we mean we ought not talk about it for fear of re-sparking those nefarious applications? I say no. Talking about the truth is the actual best way to prevent that.

_____________________

Do we desire to esteem consumption or true value creation? Obviously the latter. And that’s the problem with GDP – it measures consumption.

_____________________

Women always talk about how they want their prince charming to come out of nowhere. But I send random girls dick pics all the time and none of them ever write me back. Weird.

.

This is a joke, by the way. Like clllllearly a joke. It’s also clearly an awful joke because some men actually do this. It’s also somewhat of a social critique on gender differences, expectations, methods, hopes, and other elements.

_____________________

Whoever coined the term “money can’t buy love” definitely wasn’t a minority on welfare voting for liberal politicians. Them social programs are on fleeeek.
