Last week I saw a speech from a technologist. He said he was a tech pessimist but a people optimist.
Afterward I went up to him and asked a very simple question.
"Have you ever met people?"
It turns out, people are willing to spend $42 on a bundle of sticks.
You read that right. A bundle of sticks costs $42
And they sold out of them.
In a bundle.
I got nuthin' folks. Just stunned silence.
Granted, 42 is a very special number.
But the answer to life, the universe and everything can't be a bundle of sticks. Can it?
