Minus The Bullshit

“I haven’t started this ‘note before I die’ so that death is feared – I like the fact that we are mostly ignorant to it’s inevitability….. I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bullshit.”

– Holly Butcher (1990-2018)

The Largest Community

“The most successful man-made thing in the history of humanity, to date, is a platform called Facebook. It has assembled a community as vast as Christianity, bigger than Islam or China. In addition, it can target inside this community with unprecedented accuracy. The result is a robust and efficient complex … that takes rubles.”
