I’m so thrilled that Dirk wants in on the subscription box business, especially knowing that he’s not as big on Dutch snack foods as I am. That’s understandable – they are pretty niche. I only have such a soft spot for them on account of that semester abroad I did during undergrad. But yeah, I …

Do you ever stop and think about the design of the human body – like, really think about it? It starts to get super weird, especially when you start drilling down into the details.

I’ve never understood this whole thing of people not getting a certain haircut on the grounds that they “could never pull it off”. It’s just hair, for crying out loud. What’s the worst that could happen? You look slightly different to how people are used to seeing you for all of about five minutes? You’re …
