Why would he have to? It's his money. He can spend it how he wants? Why does anyone HAVE to do good in Vancouver with their money? Why can't he just buy a mountain of cocaine?

Markus is yet another amoral dork who found a way to profit mighty, he will do nothing to give back to Vancouver

In my younger days, I would not say my views were any better, but later in life I've seen how fucked up shit has become, and if I had a cool half billion dollars, there is no way my conscience would let me just enjoy life without using some of it to try and right the ship.

Online dating, and someone else said smart phones, all of these electronic barriers are causing a ton of group mental illness that has also helped lead to our super-PC climate where nobody can talk about anything even remotely offensive, there is NO alternative culture, and people are more narcissistic and self-absorbed than ever. Shit is fucked up!



Liberal at 20, conservative by 40...

Anyways, it would be nice if some of our rich, glorious leaders like Chip or Markus used some of their fabulous wealth to better our city, but let's be honest, there is little to no loyalty between humans these days, and even less between Vancouverites.

The attitude of "I got mine, fuck everyone else" is very, very prevalent in our city.

Exactly. You do whatever you want to do with the money you made.

Once again, what have you given back? You don't have to make "real money" to give back.

You are such a hypocrite.

I'm doing my part to discuss things I've learned by observing my actions and the actions of the people around me.


People have so little direction and connection to one another, by stirring up thought and raising discussion, I'm doing my part to help prevent a total degeneration of our culture. There are still a lot of things worth saving in the west, but few people are paying attention to the big picture.


People make fun of me because my book wasn't a hit, but it came from a place where I wanted to tell people that the pursuit of liquor, drugs and pussy is not what it is cracked up to be by the media and popular peers.


Shit, try talking about how this:


...is not somehow a worse influence on blacks than the Confederate flag. People cannot think for themselves and they cannot put 2+2 together that pop culture influences have a much greater effect on our daily lives than you might imagine.


McGill University ranks #2 as fastest growing ?sugar baby? school - Montreal | Globalnews.ca

Culturally, we've already seen a huge shift. What more proof do I need that our culture has been twisted and poisoned?




I got banned from GoodReads because I tried to give back. I spoke out years ago against 50 Shades of Grey and the glorification of women giving themselves to wealthy men for nothing other than their wealth and status. The admiration of concentrated greed and power.


Of course, nearly every single cunt on that website simply attacked me ad hominem and calling me a failed author, unsuccessful, jealous of E.L. James, "your book is shit, that's why you attack 50 Shades, loser!" etc etc. The exact same shit I get hurled at me when I dare suggest that online dating reduces the quality of our social lives and community interactions. Nobody wants to even consider it when they're too busy swiping up yet another slut for a weekend of boozing and blow!


Shit, I even quit weed to be in a better position to talk about social issues that are increasingly important to me.


Really though, getting attacked for trying to do something is better than being praised and respected by my "peers" for driving around Vancouver collecting yellow dildo-shaped minions. One can only hope Markus can use his fucking uber-nerdy brain for the benefit of others and put some of that $575 million into helping his fellow Vancouverites somehow.

I pretty much guarantee he won't. I've met him and he is completely socially dead.

The Internet allows people to behave in super fucked up ways.



When I first moved downtown, this hot girl I was messaging asked me if I had ever had random sex. I said maybe.


She asked me if I would come over while her parents were out, she was 19 and living at home. She wanted me to come over and put a blindfold on, let her blow me until I got hard, then put a condom on and then fuck her. I said ok.


A few days later she texted me and said "ok, my fam is out at Costco, can you come now?" I chugged back a mickey of vodka and washed my dick in the sink since I had no time for a shower. Grabbed condoms and hopped in a cab. Arrived at her parent's beach house in kits, really swank place. Gorgeous girl. The moment I walked in she screamed "CLOSE YOUR EYES, NOW!" So I did. She put a blindfold on and then lead me by the hand to a room. She blew me hard and then put a condom on me and pulled me on top of her. We had some great sex for about 15 minutes. She asked me to pull the condom off before I came, and when I did that for her, she jerked me off to finish and I came all over the bed we were on. The blindfold fell off and I noticed I wasn't in her room, it looked like the room of what must have been her brother, which had a lot of model airplanes and other stuff that would indicate a brother in his 20's. I came on that person's bed. Disturbed and unsure of just what the fuck was happening, and not wanting to get caught, I put my clothes on and got the fuck out of there as soon as possible. We never spoke again. She was a beautiful blonde girl, 19, "Anna" but I suspect it was a fake name.

A hot girl, living at her parents' swank beach house in Kits, messaging a Revscene member for a hookup? I call bullshit.

Good for you for "giving back".

But I am talking monetary value in terms of giving back since that's what you were referring to with Markus. You nor I know anything about Markus to say he has given or haven't given back in other shape or form.

I am in no way friends or affiliated with Markus but why shit on his parade for his success.

????

You can do this shit yourself.

Fuck, I have 2 sex tapes on my computer from girls, who upon finding out I sell porn, begged me to film me fucking them.

The Internet has created, or made more accessible, a ton of aberrant behavior.

Not an author, yet. A porn dealer who wrote a book.

Markus is a completely self-absorbed individual. His wife is a complete gold-digger who met him after being employed by him and seeing the size of his paycheques. I've met them both and their attitudes are reprehensible. They are both surrounded by sycophantic retards who kiss their asses so hard because they are so rich.


All I'm trying to say is, in our culture and society, we reward the more predatory people with huge fortunes, and not the people actually trying to make a difference. Funny how the minion thing fits in perfectly, the average 9-5 drone just worships the elites who are farther ahead in life than them, and look to them for guidance on how to behave. Obviously as individuals, change starts from within, but our examples and role models in life provide the paths to what everyone else consideres a "success" and in today's world, the most successful people are simply, the most selfish.


Shit, I've been selfish as fuck myself. Why? I simply believed I was the only person who mattered. Wake up, get high on weed, fuck hot girlfriend, do a peel out in my Supra, hit the Wendy's drive through, play Battlefield, sleep, repeat. I did this shit for 10+ years.


Now I ask, what can I do to help change this self-obsession? According to RS, this is a mistake to even pursue.

What is wrong with you? Why does Markus and his wife even matter to you? You sound like you are just hating on them because of their success.

We as a society are not rewarding them with money. He has created a service/business which has been super successful and he has profited. He earned that money through hard work. You don't get up there without putting in hard work.

Just like you are trying to make money off your books or whatever porn-service you are selling. Should we shit on your parade when you become successful and make boat loads of money?

I am really not sure what you are really expecting of Markus to give back to Vancouver. In forms of charity or what?

I also wouldn't call it a self obsession. What you want to do with your own time is up to you. I don't know who's standard you are trying to live up to call this a self-obsession.

I see it as you are trying to kick yourself out of a bad routine to be more productive. But like i said, what you do with your own time is entirely up to you. You can continue to do that for 10+ years if you want. As long as you are cool with it.
