Charities

What do you guys think about the rich and healthy giving away money after they die? I think that's a load of bull. People should experience misanthropy and philanthropy through pessimism and optimism, not through giving or passing down what is known as nepotism.

I'm not sure I follow. Is your issue that people inherit wealth?

Ain't it funny how Gates is the richest man and he has no idea how sex can create such a mishap as something as empty as the anarchist state we inhibit in these armagideon times?

I get what you mean but that is a rather blanket statement.

I think I should inherit Bill Gates' wealth.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
