Gillette did a Kaepernick

You probably know about this Gillette commercial in which they urge men to stop with the bullying and harassment. If you don’t, watch it below.

I have nothing against the message. We all should strive to become a better version of ourselves. But, as this guy puts it…

And whoever came with the idea most certainly forgot about this:

You can’t have it both ways, Gillette.

Bazinga! Enough is enough.

I’ve followed the Big Bang Theory series up until season 5 or 6. Can’t really remember when they got too boring for me.

Today I learned Jim Parsons decided to quit, causing the show to close shop. Everyone in the cast wanted to continue, but Jim said enough is enough. It’s time to wrap this 12-year show and go do something else.

Apparently, he’s been getting a lot of flack. He got his fame, money, and power, and ruined what was still considered a good show. He doesn’t care about others losing their job.

The best things in life are free. The second best things are very, very expensive .

What people fail to understand is, once you’re past a certain threshold, money no longer bring you the same satisfaction.

And while it’s true that many people will lose their job, it’s not like they weren’t expecting it. They knew the end was near. It’s super rare for a show to go on for twelve years.

Can you imagine to be working on the same thing 12 years in a row? An author writing on the same book, a musician working on the same album, a painter painting on the same picture. Year after year, for more than a decade. That’s crazy.

Yes, he (and others) got his money and now he wants out. And that’s ok.
