The fact that your example highlights people on the Forbes list speaks volumes, but you can't see it. If you are using such an extreme example, it suggests you have money.

It's been an interesting 15 months coming back to my purpose as a man. Wasn't exactly off it for a few years, but neither fully "on." I put up with too much bull personally and professionally.

Society seems filled with "feel good" lies about...just about everything. I turned it off 12 months ago after the election debacle...prior actually. "Who cares, "No" and "Zero (Figs) Given" are empowering phrases.

Too, I've found...

Probably a dumb question about motor oil
