Saw the top-rated article at the Guardian today
It says Microlives: the key to living longer
(There’s a lady smoking in the picture)
What I imagined it was about:
“Microlives” are short phases of your life where you live a certain kind of lifestyle
i.e., living a microlife as a fasting ascetic,
a microlife as a gym rat protein shaker person,
a microlife as a beer drinking cigarette smoking hedonist,
and that if you continued to mix and match your lifestyles throughout your life
you’d develop a kind of “lifestyle diversity”
the way ecosystems can be biologically diverse
and your body would be trained to adapt itself to multiple lifestyle choices
and science would confirm this makes you live longer
It was really about measuring bad decisions by thirty minute increments of your life that
you are losing.
This is stupid because life is not that simple.
I wonder if you could get away with trading microlives like stock. “Futures markets” of microlives,
betting on microlives, etc.
I FEEL LIKE I COULD MAKE A KILLING
on that because
I REALIZE WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS STUPID
