Life is Hard — Part I

Life is Hard — Part I

If you haven’t read the introduction now would be a good time because 1) it introduces my views (hence the word introduction) 2) I wrote it and 3) in all objectivity it’s totally awesome. But in case you disagree with all that, here’s the gist: Life is hard, but it is simple. Because we want…
