    "Don't get me wrong; who you are inside is everything -- the guy who built a house for his family from scratch did it because of who he was inside. Every bad thing you've ever done has started with a bad impulse, some thought ricocheting around inside your skull until you had to act on it. And every good thing you've done is the same -- "who you are inside" is the metaphorical dirt from which your fruit grows.

    But here's what everyone needs to know, and what many of you can't accept:

    "You" are nothing but the fruit.

    Nobody cares about your dirt. "Who you are inside" is meaningless aside from what it produces for other people."

    This piece is through the lens of materialism and secondhandness. No thanks.

    This was good reading. I've never seen that site before. Thanks for sharing it. My favorite line in the piece-
    "It took me probably 20,000 hours of practice to sand the edges off my sucking." (David Wong)
