Turns out Silicon Valley is both figuratively and literally a coven of pale male vampires who feed on the fresh blood of the young.
Watch this appearance at the RNC and convince me Peter Thiel is not a vampire. Body cams don't lie, people. Believe your eyes.
p.s. the way you know this is true is because the Republican National Convention happened at night, and you read about it on the internet.
In any case, the libertarian dream of escaping death and politics and replacing one's humanity with machine learning is certainly alive and well.

Douglas Adams’ “rules that describe our reactions to technologies":
“Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works."
“Anything that’s invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it."
“Anything invented after you’re 35 is against the natural order of things."
