Screw You Balaji Srinivasan

Screw You Balaji Srinivasan! 72 hours ago I never heard of you. Now, after listening to only 2 hours of your Tim Ferriss podcast I’m making blogs and buying Bitcoin. Like I mentioned in my other blog I am vanilla. And not even that, I am old vanilla, maybe even old imitation vanilla. Not old in the sense of a good bottle of scotch. I’m more like old in the, “Jesus Christ how long has this sippy cup of milk been lodged under the seat in my minivan. My youngest gets her driving permit next week” old.

So here I am. The problem is I know I’m not alone. I know that there is an army of Me’s out there. We are the people that are likely to be displaced by technology in the coming decades, or as you make it seem from your podcast with Tim Ferriss, in the next week and a half. Enjoy your Easter Ham covered in melted Reese’s eggs my friends because come next Tuesday some nine year old in China is going to flip a switch and all of my bank accounts are going to vanish.

I’m going to be generous with myself. I’m going to guess I have an IQ somewhere around 100-110. The only reason I say this is because my kids kick the crap out of standardized test. Knowing my wife is at least a standard deviation above me, either I’m not as dumb as I look or ‘Lucy you gots some explaining to do’. Moma’s baby, Papa’s maybe. Oh well, either way my kids can figure out their own homework, which is nice.

Back to my point. Balaji, in the last 72 hours I have done a bunch of things that may be considered laughable to the rest of my secret society members (once they join). So you better be goddamn right on some of these predictions and this road you’ve started us on. I don’t want this to be similar to my past juicing experience after I watched “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” or how I became obsessed with recycling for an entire summer after watching “An Inconvenient Truth”. I don’t even want to go into what happened after I watch “Transamerica“.

This leads me to the Society of Extraordinary Men for Excellence and Nobility Rule number two
