Inconvenient truths day

  • Irrational exuberance beats realistic pessimism 
  • Complete honesty only comes with anonymity OR fuck you money (and never with at-will employment)
  • Much of what we believe is heavily influenced by conmen (and idiots) with massive advertising budgets 
  • Art and engineering are the purest professions
  • Social media just moved what is usually whispered amongst friends in a bar to a global stage 
  • Martyrdom is what separates man from animal
  • Everything you’ve ever said or done online will probably be leaked some day
  • In the long run, that might not be a bad thing
  • In the short run, that leaves 2 options: be 100% real on/offline and accept the consequences or only write things that you wouldn’t mind the world reading someday 
  • Information produces the same chemicals in our brain as cigarettes and alcohol
  • Who cares if the Emperor had any clothes?
  • Boomers fucked up
  • Gen X got shafted 
  • Millennials will exceed everyone’s expectations  
  • We don’t need to wear sunscreen
  • Hedonism is for losers
  • Blogs rule
  • Given a choice, better to live like you’ll never die than to live like it’s your last day
  • This probably won’t age as well as I hope it does
