The rise of Khaby Lame. Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
It is frustrating to be expected to sign in just to watch any of the video links posted. I wasn’t able to watch them without signing in.
I struggle with people wasting their time watching videos on any platform. And for society to pay someone to make the videos is even more absurd. Too many people are suffering in this world that do not even have access to such nonsense that could use the help in their lives. Sorry, not a TikToc guy.
Difficult to have any sympathy for Harvey!
"Sometimes the solution isn't to adapt your dreams to fit the world, but instead to adapt the way you interact with the world to achieve your dreams." - I think it's the most heartfelt sentence I have ever read in a newsletter. Thank you for this Bill. As an artist, a dreamer, and an entrepreneur, these words hit home. Loved today's story (as usual).
Why is irony is so funny? Because we can relate. I love to watch short funny reels because sometimes life can get so depressing or stressful, that laughter pops you out of the gloom and doom and reminds you how silly life can be. I enjoyed the video clips.
The same ability allowed Rowan Atkinson to become fabulously rich off Mr. Bean (which was a worldwide phenomenon - I seem to recall a story about an English hostage who said the worst thing was being mocked by Somali pirates for looking like Mr. Bean). Before Rowan Atkinson, think Benny Hill. Same thing - sold everywhere because required no translation.
Fantastic main story with a great outcome. I watched all the clips you included. If I were a Tic-Tocker, I’d probably lose my day watching him. Most great ideas are born of simplicity I’m thinking.
This guy is so funny. I was cracking up the whole time. The one with the zip-tied glass killed me!
