Episode 171: Infinite awesome

Thomas Jefferson once said that if he used his candle to light yours, you didn’t steal any of his flame — you both had fully lit candles. This has been used as an argument against intellectual property, but we use it as a metaphor for bringing people up — you don’t have to put people down to make yourself better. You can be awesome, make someone else awesome, and not have any of your awesome reduced.

There is infinite awesome in the world.
