Pietzsche

It translates into this: I end up playing video games with a bunch of 23-year-olds until 3 a.m., and he ends up reading the Nietzsche I give him.

This is a pretty cool glimpse into Glenn Greenwald's personal life. I already held him in high esteem for being the closest thing to a mainstream Noam Chomsky we can likely have in our media, but he's a Nietzsche fan too? Awesome.

Also a fan, I enjoyed reading this story. Thanks.
He was once criticized for writing so much he "makes my scrolly finger tired", which still tickles me.

That was one of the guys at 3 Bulls, I think. I remember that. It was like a fake rap-battle between them and Sadly, No!
