How we should have an international game show about people of
different countries competing in eating contests, with the winner
choosing a patch of land a 100 square miles to nuke into oblivion.
The ratings would be insane. The sales of iGeiger too.
Thats marketing for you people, take something that already exists,
make it thinner, make it easy to use, make it youthful, make it
fuckable, sell it overpriced in repugnant barren absurdly white

Perception of ourselves and other people. How most of the
importance we think we have we give ourselves by being self

and are stuck in a loop of unvoluntary solipsism.
