Own a Lamborghini today – only €300,000

Own a Lamborghini today – only €300,000

The real question when you were a 80’s kid is if you had a Lamborghini, or a Porsche poster on your wall.

I was a Lambo guy – because…well – it was the most amazing looking car ever. I have driven a modern Lamborghini at the Portland International Raceway, but they don’t hold a candle to the 80’s babies for the unique flash and flare they created at the time.

Imagine my delight when a 1991 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition is going up for sale on Sotheby’s – for an estimated €250.000 – €300.000

Sadly, they were one of the least driver friendly cars ever – here’s a modern review of exactly this make and model. My favorite part is what you have to do in order to back up (see 9:20 in the video).

No reserve, so get your bids in today and take advantage of the very favorable US to British Pound conversion rate.

Ex-Facebook exec ‘deeply regrets’ what he helped create

Videos of more social media site creators and executives speaking out directly against what they created. They call for each person to awaken to how they can ‘program’ you and that each person should make a conscious effort to limit their use of them. Here’s what Chamath Palihapitiya, former Facebook VP, has to say now:

“People need to hard break from these tools. The short-term dopamine driven feedback loops we have created are destroying how society works. No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistrust. Bad actors can now manipulate large swaths of people to do anything they want. … You do not realize it, but you are now being programmed.”

Here’s from Sean Parker, former Facebook President:

“You’re exploiting a vulnerability of human psychology. The inventors, creators, understood this – consciously – and we did it anyway.”

I encourage you to go to TimeWellSpent and my previous article on this subject on how we can be aware of how these systems can be harmful to you emotional wellbeing and limit the more damaging influences of social media.
