Someone earlier said Jeff Bezos makes more in a week than you could have earned at $5k/day since Columbus reached the US.

I didn't believe it.

I checked.

It appears to be true.

This is disgusting.


@ajroach42 The jeff bezos twine game put into perspective for me how much money he makes by how much he could singlehandedly fix

Someone in my tl posted it earlier and I just want to make sure everyone knows about it.

@jackiemoon @lapis ... No? I don't use AWS for anything, and especially not this instance.

@jackiemoon @lapis what kind of weird purity test are you running here?

"You can't complain about the man if you've ever purchased from his business." is a bullshit ideology.

I don't make purchases from Amazon or Whole Foods any more, just like I don't make purchases from Walmart anymore. I have in the past. If it becomes my only option again, I might in the future.

@lapis @jackiemoon It's one thing to try and gotcha somebody with "you're complaining about a man on a platform that enriches him" and entirely another to try and gotcha them with "you say you are against capitalism, and yet you appear to shop occasionally."

You can miss me with that.

@jackiemoon @lapis Me: Bezos has a disgusting amount of money
you: Gotcha! You use AWS to say this, you're part of the problem.
Me: ... No?
You: Well you've at least made a purchase from Amazon at some point ever! Still part of the problem.
Me: ...That's not how this works?
You: Chill bro, I didn't mean anything by it.

Which part am I misunderstanding, because it reads like a cheap attack.
