What’s The Point Of Anything? At the risk of sounding completely emo and navel-gazing-y and dramatic, I have one question.

"We are fallible human beings and we are not owed anything. We are here to experience everything life has available for us. Some are given more privilege than others, more opportunity, just by a matter of birthright. And, no matter where you land on that spectrum, you can experience what life is about. That’s the point of all of this that gets buried underneath the achievements of the world, the same achievements we think marks the quality of a life. But, you know what is the kicker? You’re the only one that can determine whether you have lived a life well-lived. You are the beginning and the end of that qualifier. So, if you have one goal to live by, one achievement you must keep dangling above you, it should be this: live your life based on your own metrics of a life well-lived and let every day be an adventure in understanding more of that experience.

Beautiful Street Experiment Shows Generosity Triumph Over Greed

What happens when you stick a ton of dollar bills on a board with the words ‘Take what you need, give what you can’? The guys from Ark Project Now who created this social experiment weren’t at all sure, but the footage of what happened next proves beyond a doubt that humans really are awesome. Yes, we are. The guys went to Mission Beach in San Diego and stuck the board in a busy place with lots of people passing by. Some stopped to take photos and selfies, and most chose to stick some cash to the board. Within 45 minutes, this sum had doubled. One man, who admits he is poor and needy, says on camera: “It makes your brain scramble seeing all that money floating around. Wow.
