Teenager Paid $800,000 For A Bunch Of Supreme Skate Decks In An Auction

If, after reading the headline, you are asking what the hell are you doing with your life, well, you are not alone. I was asking myself the same. Why am still here furiously typing on an aging MacBook Pro on an aging Apple Wireless Keyboard and look an aging Apple Cinema Display for a paltry return instead of raising my hand in a cool ass manner to bid for something that cost hundreds of thousands.

Last week, when I was watching the live stream of the unveiling of Tesla Model Y, I was looking at the cars. Certainly I have no idea to pay attention to Elon Musk. Musk is synonymous with Tesla but, still, I never thought I should bother with how he looked, what was his attire and I most definitely won’t be checking out his kicks.
