1. I wonder why running shoe and hiking gear or really almost all apparel manufacturers rarely if ever advertise on the durability and “long-lastingness” of their product? I don’t mean general claims but rather things like, “these new La Sportiva’s will give you 450 miles of class3 and below hiking!”
2. I once took Koch money to run a student seminar. Not only was I not paid, but was probably made personally poorer for it. I have since shut down the seminar, obviously because it requires a shill to identify scarcity.
