I got the impression it was written by a (somewhat narcissistic) girl who travels, but maybe Im too cynical

This was the most narcissistic thing Ive read in a while

    Can we please stop paying attention to Evgeny Morozov now?

Why? He makes some good points.

What the hell did I just read?

This hinges on the assumptions that humans are programmable though. That we are born a 'blank slate'. But consider the opposite, that maybe there are some fundamental traits that could be called human nature? If that were the case, I'd think it a much simpler explanation that people just like owning stuff, than there being a vast conspiracy designed to trick you.

I agree, Ive had a weak depression (scored a couple points below the threshold for a 'proper' episode), and trying to be positive actually made me feel worse. CBT really helped though. Like, REALLY. Because it's all about being factual and reasonable, rather than positive. Replacing the thought "My life is meaningless and Im just going to feel like this forever" with "My life is awesome and Im growing everyday and everything is perfect" isn't healthy. Its replacing one irrationality with another. But consider the thought "Im in a depression which makes everything feel more difficult than normal, but depression is treatable". That's a more reasonable approach, and it actually lets you give yourself a break :)

Is there even a way for authorities to seize bitcoins?

My sister just had a son, and Im kinda freaking out over whether or not Ill be a good uncle. And that whole patronizing adult-thing is exactly what I worry about. How do you avoid that? Just ask the guy "what up dude? good day? see the latest breaking bad? it was messed UP yo." ?

They're playing close to me in about a week. Tickets are about 17€, worth it?

Thanks man! :) Great idea btw

If I want to get in on this, how do I do? :)
