Women want to be seen as beautiful. Men want to be seen as strong.

Brando said that actors were basically self-directed. I agree. I also think the same is pretty much true about life.

In Leonardo DiCpario I see an actor who does his job at a superb level. I haven’t seen an actor who teaches us more about life.

If self-driving tech for cars reaches the potential Elon Musk says it will, then we’ll be wise to revisit car manufacturing legislation. Cars that never crash don’t need the same safety measures. They can be lighter and waaaay cheaper + more energy efficient. I heard about a company in India that made a car for like $2K. Problem is, it doesn’t pass all the US safety regulations so they can’t sell it here. But again, if AV tech means it won’t ever crash (or very, very low probability) then then we don’t need those high regulations anymore. One day it may be illegal to drive.

All I want for my birthday is for a bunch of hot chicks to slide into my DM.

That’s a joke. A birthday joke xD

Pretending is where one finds feeling. Acting is about action. That’s how I see it.

We have time privilege, not gender privilege. Compare women today to women from 75 years ago, and contemporary women have soooooooo much privilege.

Imo, Alex Morgan is def not the cutest player on the US Women’s soccer team. I like Tobin Heath : )

Plot twist: for the vast majority, college diplomas are the biggest scam of all time.

I loved listening to Naval. He is brilliant. His biggest error, however, is in thinking that everyone can be trained to be highly creative. They can’t. I think that’s where some of his forecasts for the future fall apart. Other than that, A+.

The two things I always chased were freedom and greatness. I chased them in tandem. So wherever I end up, that’ll be the explanation.
