"The 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work."

It's mean to attack me at all my weaknesses

Hey, light weighted backpacking nomads, I've been using single use razors to shave but I want to switch to something more eco friendly.
Any pointers?

@7047741 My partner and I have encountered some surprised doctors too. A few years back he got some general blood tests and his cholesterol levels were so perfect that the doctor was astounded. It surprised her so much that mid consultation she went and showed the other doctors in the clinic how spot on the results were.

She said, "I don't know what you're doing, but keep doing it". He just said, "I'm vegan". Of course it was all new information to her given how little GPs know about diet.

I want to scrape or talk to the API of Youtube/Instagram and Facebook (events) and return the data to a website I'm building. I found solutions using PHP and I've also been checking out the Django framework using Python.

Scrape or talk to the API?
What are my best options regarding manipulating data (PHP, Python ..)?

I'm getting so many DMs from startups who want me to try their new platform or wtvr.

It usually goes like:

"Does it work offline?"
"No."
"I don't wanna hear about it"

"You don't talk, you watch talk shows. You don't play games, you watch game shows. Travel, relationships, risk; every meaningful experience must be packaged and delivered to you to watch at a distance so that you can remain ever-sheltered, ever-passive, ever-ravenous consumers who can't free themselves to rise from their couches, break a sweat, and participate in life.
