To lick or not to lick? I say no.
Today I agreed to meet someone who’s, unfortunately, no longer my “buddy” about his startup. He asked for money.
Surely enough, I agreed on listening, reassuring him that I’ll be open, so we discussed. It went well, then I said no.
He said “But you know me so well, would you give your money to others?”.

Say you were a developer, as I used to be. Good luck if you think skill and over-all being good would bring you anything.
Projects are not given to most potent people but to these who know how to properly move that tongue over that itty-bitty tiny hole we all have down there.
That is how we built our mediocre world.
Merit over everything else, people.
