    Maybe that isn't worded quite right, this is an interesting article though.

    "If you wake up on a Casper mattress, work out with a Peloton before breakfast, Uber to your desk at a WeWork, order DoorDash for lunch, take a Lyft home, and get dinner through Postmates, you’ve interacted with seven companies that will collectively lose nearly $14 billion this year. If you use Lime scooters to bop around the city, download Wag to walk your dog, and sign up for Blue Apron to make a meal, that’s three more brands that have never recorded a dime in earnings, or have seen their valuations fall by more than 50 percent."

    The ones that add true value, will adjust prices and consumers will continue to use the service. The rest will disappear. That's free Enterprise.

    Nope.

    All these displaced trend-of-the-day employees are gonna be at the soup kitchen bitching that the bread isn’t artisanal and the potatoes in the stew aren’t symmetrical.

    Actually, the bread that they give away at the
    food pantry is mostly the high-end stuff because
    it has such a short shelf life. Baked dessert items too.

    I’m sure I’ll regret this, but WTF is “vocal fry”?

    It's like a french fry, but baked in the oven by someone who doesn't understand what the word fry means.
