The Jocks vs. The Nerds

[click to enlarge]
Michael Jordan having "retired," with $40 million in endorsements, makes $178,100 a day, working or not. If he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while visions of sugarplums dance in his head. If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make $18,550 while he's there. If he decides to have a 5-minute egg, he'll make $618 while boiling it. He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends. He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage. If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars he made, you'd be living comfortably at $65,000 a year. This year, he'll make more than twice as much as all U.S. past presidents for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn't it?
If Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 450 years, he'll still have less than Bill Gates has today. Game over. Nerd wins.

bless technology, for it is on our side [i think]

The PC lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

it's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day just exactly fits in the newspaper

THE TRUTH: "We must make efforts to create a harmonious society and a good social environment for successfully holding the 17th Communist Party Congress and the Beijing Olympic Games[…]We must strike hard at hostile forces at home and abroad, such as ethnic separatists, religious extremists, violent terrorists and ‘heretical organizations’ like the Falun Gong who carry out destabilizing activities." Zhou Yongkang, Minister of Public Security [21st March 2007].

there's a whole heap of shit going on in our heads that we never talk about

Ode to Overchoice

Over-choice is a form of bondage. We become addicted to it. Over-choice drives our dissatisfaction with what we have. Over-choice always leaves us wanting more and better. Over-choice always leaves us wondering whether or not we’ve made the right choice – given that there are so many other choices that could be more right. Over-choice makes life complicated, and stressful.
