@LivaJudic well I didn't write the Quran ;-)At some point @claychristensen may have to write another book: "Look, Dammit, That's Not What I Meant"

Retweeted by Fred Destin @rodolfor yupJust worth reminding everyone that the Quran says only he who giveth life may take a life (he being God). Hold your horses on Islam.
Alert - Critical bug affecting Apple products - update immediately - @cliffelam all about context though. Obama was all about hope, not fear."All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked." – Goering
Retweeted by Fred DestinTouché :-) $3bn to $1bn but both rounds were internal so god knows what the "real" value is (or how much cash went in)... party I was part of is dead.
Retweeted by Fred DestinThis is a real photo from tonight, btw.
Retweeted by Fred DestinDear world. Please ignore what the loud guy in the suit is saying. Americans are nothing like him. We love our country and are proud of it
Retweeted by Fred DestinI’ve heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn’t sound any better in Russian.
Retweeted by Fred DestinI feel like I might need to tweet this again...
Retweeted by Fred Destin @RiG8r huh ? @cliffelam I'm not trying to be partisan and everyone is guilty under proven otherwiseGood lord.

Retweeted by Fred DestinAn example of government deregulation gone wildly wrong with zero consumer protection and poor lending practices on last night's speech, feeling like Ted Cruz would have won this election.Great time at @efLDN last night - really raising the bar in the seed game ! Deux: Solar meets electric, touches all vehicles, whilst perfect auto drive allows vehicle sharing. Boom.
#RNCaMovie: Dial D for Deranged celebration of the $1bn exit of @DollarShaveClub - the best founder video ever made : via @youtubeso @nero aka Milo Yannopoulos got banned but no-one can show us HIS Tweets ? c’mon @techcrunch and @twitter ? she's good. Case study in media tap dancing a.k.a. the delivery of fuzzy facts with aplomb., borrow, steal: "The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them"
"Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken." 😉😂😂 #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes
Retweeted by Fred DestinOk so @MELANIATRUMP sounds a lot like a bland Miss Universe (#missRNC ?) but she's holding her own up there. Great stage presence. #RNCFascinating to see senior republican delegates holding their noses and eating their Brussels sprouts tonight. @Jason You have no idea ...
.@johnhenderson looks back at this European startup and VC adventure - Banks finally all on same p2p exchange - but no word on fees AFAIK was written by one of the police killed in #BatonRouge today just a few days ago. Heartbreaking.

@fdestin it's an absolutist cultural ideal(albeit mad), next to the moral nihilism of western culture.
Retweeted by Fred Destin @rodolfor no question. @rodolfor your meaning being that extreme circumstances breed extreme ideologies ?2/2 International Brigades in the Spanish Civil War were fighting for freedom - Jihad = sad modern day equivalent, belongs to Middle Ages1/2 Read often about how Jihad is "sexy and adventurous" to young people - still fail to grasp it fully - what's aspirational about it ?
