    Wanting to live forever in this place is probably one of the dumbest ideas one could think of.
    Death smiles at us all for a reason. And all we can do is smile back. For the same reason. And sooner or later everyone bends the knee.
    Go read King Solomon. There was never a more life blessed and lived on this earth as far as hedonics goes. Read what he had to say about it.
    Bezo’s ain’t going anywhere he’s going to like.
