Show me a person without friends and I'll show you a selfish narcissistic ass. All the money, all the fame, all the notoriety means nothing without someone to share it with. I think Fire Marshal Bill is making excuses for his shitty life choices.
This is Just sad. Is not something to celebrate.
People with good relationships live longer, happier lives. This guy traveled around the world, met virtually millions of people and never found ONE he could bond with?
If you have a problem with the whole world, maybe Is not the world the problem.
As a contractor selling jobs. I was never late, ever. I had customers tell me numerous times that you got the job partly for returning their call and being on time. It was a great lesson. To this day it's a rule that works. Never be late.
i thought i had friends as a teenager ... then i realized they just liked to spend some time together ... and in reality i only had colleagues ...
someone once asked me "how long did your longest friendship last?" ... my answer now: i never had one ...
I am 36 and have a few close friends I have had since grade school and we all still stay in touch. Those are true friends and do not want anything from you but on the flip side I agree and understand this guys view point
very true. Nikki Lauda lived the way he wanted too. And he was a realist and beeing able to live with that. 6 weeks after that horrible accident he went into that racecar again to drive. There was blood in his helmet when he took it of. They don't make them like that anymore. Nowadays, when they have a broken toe nail, there out for at least 6 months. Look at this guys life and what he did for the sport he loved.
Good on you Niki! But your true friends were never after you for what you’ve worked hard for. Toto Wolff and Lewis Hamilton loved you as a friend and were devastated about your passing.
Well done for doing the right thing though man.
My next door neighbor has it in his head that he’s such a likable guy with great friends. Except the only reason they come is he always pays their gas or picks them up (they live 25 miles away). They stay because he is never without beer. They tell him what he likes to hear and that’s their relationship since childhood.
I learned when I was a kid that friendships go both ways. If you’re always the one calling, planning the stuff to do, expending the energy and resources to see one another; it’s not a friendship, and there’s a good possibility they’re only around because you’re doing the heavy lifting or paying their way. I know I like you. But if Im the only one who wants this friendship I’d much rather be alone.
I still have 2 friends. They come from sharing the front in streetfights. The best friends. 1 already more relyable and more soul and heart and class than 1 mio of the usual egotrippers (betamales) combined. I`m happy for the hell I went through. It brought me true friends. RIP Niki. You are the real deal.
Very magnanimous to not fire the guy when he so easily could have; probably a mutual respect for having the cahoonas to say something risky which is understandable for a man who lived for taking big risks. Ballsy in character and cooly in mentality. RIP Nki.
Bless his soul, Niki may have come across as an asshole at times but at least he was a 100% real asshole in every way, no BS about anything even if it was not politically correct. I totally get what he is saying here...I have had a so-called friend so consumed with F'n greed that he wanted a job where I worked and almost got me fired in the process. Then on my actual B-Day I invited a few friends to an awesome house party only to find out that after dropping me off at home they went out with a girl I was interested in behind my back...so I totally get giving up on having friends as one gets older and wiser in life. Sometimes the pain of having friends makes it better to just not bother with them anymore!!!
It's funny, that nobody noticed, that the sentences, which his character in the movie Rush ( played by Daniel Brühl) answered to the BRM's boss , are almost the same, wich he answered to his CFO , when he kicked him out of the car. Check it!
Ele até diz que não tem amigos, mas Nelson Piquet, um cara controverso, diz que em toda fórmula um, Niki foi o único que o acolheu e lhe ensinou muitas coisas que o fizeram chegar ao tri campeonato e que seria o único piloto do passado a considerar como um grande amigo pela gratidão ao seu gesto, mesmo passados anos ao fato. Talvez nem o próprio Niki tenha tido conhecimento desse fato.
He's absolutely right. Punctuality makes all the difference I try to be atleast 10 minutes early for work most of the time 15 minutes early. It really does put you in a better place mentally and just leads to a better day. If your stressing about being late and rolling in late or with a minute to spare it and have to immediately get out and rush in the building it really does set you up badly for the day. RIP niki
I know exactly what he means. Seeing how people treat each other at work for 15 years now has shown me you can't trust anyone. I can't stand weak people personally. Stand your fucking ground and be a good person.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
