_What interests me
the games we play to make ends meet, the tools and skills we develop to deal with our incompetences, the time we spend to adjust to new furniture, the obstacles we encounter in getting to work, the gestures we do to appear not to have lost control,
Lies, unintended garbage, broken knowledge, bad table manners and other evidence of dubious social design,
that I can only agree on something if I can also disagree on it
