it has everything you need: a camera, editing apps, social media apps, video platforms, etc.Smartphones have 4K video capability and many of the features found in professional film cameras Additional Notes A lot of people in the UK were blindsided by the Brexit vote just as many people in the US were blindsided by the Trump voteIt’s likely that President Kennedy was on methamphetamines and that President Trump is on some kind of pillZuby believes Trump will win the 2020 electionJust as women can get breast cancer from breast implants, doctors are starting to see cancer from butt implantsInstead of getting implants, women just need to do squats and work out their lower bodies (deadlift, run stairs, etc.)A great way to stay humble: Remember that everyone is superior to you in one form or anotherWhen people start calling everyone a racist or bigot, it dilutes the term and lets the truly horrible people escape the spotlightFor example, Zuby has been called a Nazi and white supremacist even though he’s black“It’s gotten to the stage where words just lose their meanings… I don’t take these accusations seriously anymore”Too many people live in echo chambers and think their ideology is the only one that’s correct – these people don’t even bother talking with others that disagreeYou can easily find common ground with someone you disagree with as it’s highly unlikely that either side is 100% correctWhen someone says they can’t do something because of their religion, that’s okay. But if someone says YOU can’t do something because of their religion, that’s crossing the line.People are drawn to individuals that help bring out their potentialBoth Joe and Zuby are fans of David Goggins and Jordan PetersonIf you want to make society better, start by making yourself better first If you make $20/hr, reading these notes just saved you $25.
