I cannot stress this enough.

But if you knew you might not be able to see it again tomorrow, everything would suddenly become special and precious, wouldn’t it?

IKEA stores now populate the suburbs of America. They spring up wherever there is enough space to hold their gargantuan facilities. Why are they so popular? Price is one factor, but also there’s something called the IKEA Effect: You value something that you build more than something you buy ready-made.

What’s behind the IKEA Effect?

Very interesting read.

"A fucking tiger? What the fuck is wrong with you, Angel? I love animals. Why would you do that."

"You mastered your fear."

"I don’t fear animals. I fear the beast of humanity and what it does to children in an education system that teaches them neither empathy nor modern mathematics or relevant cultural histories. I fear an empty bank account. Perhaps zombies. I fear clogged drains and toilets. But animals? Never!"

Angel just stared at them.

"You’re lucky I didn’t sent those animal rights freaks back to this gym! You’re lucky i like killing people and petting big fuzzy kitties more than ratting out my homies."

"You’re ready to -."

"NOT COOL MAN! NOT. COOL!"

"Tickets to Murder Brawl."

"You’re the man, consider us even. I’m keeping the tiger, naming it Petunia. You’re the greatest. Bye."

And on that day, Angel de la Muerte learned how to successfully deal with his new Boss.
