Gene propogation. It's why you guys are going batshit over that promotion.

It's such a basic truth that few seem to acknowledge.

In a way it's quite a beautiful thing.
Yet to think we are nothing more than fleshy vehicles for our genes, it's quite depressing.

I don't know, maybe I'm overthinking it. But it never surprises me what people will do for money.
The abuse. The torment. What people will take from their "superiors" is amazing.

My point is not encourage one to become a degenerate millenial (i.e. liberal).
It's just that we need to "chill out" a bit more, let things naturally fall into place.

End of my short Wednesday evening rant.
