Today I learned that Amway, the multilevel marketing group was restructered and became Alticor which owns hotels around the world. Alticor is owned by Marriot. NICE. :|

Do they still follow the same pyramid scheme?

Welcome to silicon valley, where everything is made up and a sound business model doesn't matter.

I just hope someone acquires all of the content. Wouldn't mind re-watching the Reno 911 episodes again.

I just found out that there is a guy who plays Simon Says as his job. His name is Steve Max.

They clearly thought of that and decided to prevent the freak-out by putting "don't panic" ahead. It's your fault if you won't listen! :p Good shit right there!

edit: this made me check my corona app for the first time in weeks...

What I thought was a piece of a broken rusty gate in the driveway, was in fact a third of a ring, of a rear coil spring! Test fail!

None anymore...
TIL that MacKenzie Scott, co-founder of Amazon and ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, has donated more than 6 billion dollars in 2020: https://www.bbc.com/news/business-55313522

Now that's what I call taking responsibility - I am donating 110 Euros monthly to different charities and have donated my "Corona bonus" of 1500 Euros last year completely, but 6 billion dollars is obviously a whole different story...
