    Went to the same high school as Liberal darling Laura Moser
    And her runoff opponent
    And where Ted Cruz’s kids go to preschool
    And Wes Anderson

    Oh and Justice Winslow

    Maybe i should've clarified by saying older sister! She was three years ahead of me and i got to witness all of her complaints during her years there regarding the workload, etc. Plus, and more importantly, about 15 friends (literally) defected over to Lamar between finishing 8th grade at St. John's and starting 9th at Lamar (and one more came over after our freshmen year). And then all 16 or so had a pic together in our yearbook senior year...

    I just love how she completely ripped off Steve Jobs’ look. Reminds me of Erlich in the first season of Silicon Valley.

    I’m honestly surprised she’s still alive, seems like the type of person who wouldn’t be able to handle it all once the house of cards collapsed.

    read this book in about 5 hours last night. highly recommend



    nothing ever worked. Favorite part is Safeway spending like $300 million to renovate their supermarkets to house a bunch of these machines and not a single one making it into a store.

    i don't know how she can avoid prison time for this.

    Not sure if it was mentioned, but there is a book called Bad Blood that is very in depth about Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes, and everything from the start to the end. Really crazy read. Recommend it.

    20/20 did a whole ep on this Friday. it was basically just the video version of The Dropout.

    Watching the HBO one now, They must have been working on this since before the lawsuit. Having her interview, ect. Im only 20 min in though.

    She didn’t interview for it, I’m pretty sure it’s from the advertising session she did with an extremely high end ad agency that did work for Theranos.
