Which side are you guys on: Bo Burnham's or Taylor Swift's?

Do you think anyone can become rich and famous if they put enough effort into it, or is it all just a matter of sheer luck at the end of the day?

Burnham's. He's basically telling you to have a back up plan and not invest everything you have into something that might not happen
at the end of the day it's luck
@raikage00 ........ And so it is.......Amen.....
Fame and talent are 2 different things. U can work hard to improve yourself and your abilities but you'll only be as famous as the world allows you to be. Fame like that of Taylor swift is luck and it's not to say that she hasn't worked hard but that doesn't correlate directly to her status. I.e. Some people have to do nothing to be famous like Kim kardashian or Paris Hilton.
Well I happen to be a huge Bo Burnham fan, and that's mostly cuz I'm fond of common sense! I'm with Bo on this 1- sorry Taylor

Because new breakouts and pop-ups can lead to new scars. Scars are formed when a pimple breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it. Before starting treatment of scars, you should need to know what type of scars you are facing. Each type of scar differently responds to treatment. Atrophic or depressed scars Atrophic scars are one of the most common scars on the face. Depressed scars are usually formed when not enough collagen is made while the wound is healing. There are 3 types of atrophic scars. Boxcar Wide scars with U shape and sharp edges are known as a boxcar. They can be shallow or deep. The shallower the scars, the better they will respond. Ice pick These are deeper scars on the skin and “V in shape”. They can look like small rounds or like chickenpox scar.

Hypertrophic or raised scars These are more common in the chest and back shoulder. These scars are little above the surface and caused by too much collagen during healing. Dark spots This isn’t actually a scar. It’s the discoloration left behind after a zit has cleared. These marks will fade out on their own. Acne Scar Treatment Laser surfacing Laser resurfacing is one of the best treatments to treat scars. In this acne scar treatment, a dermatologist removes the upper layer of the skin.

Fillers Dermatologists use fillers to fill acne scars on the face and forehead. The filling material will be made with collagen, the patient’s own fat, or with commercial filler. This filling material is injected under the skin to smooth out depressed scars. This treatment needs to be redone after a specific time. Most fillers fade out after 10 to 18 months. However, some of them are permanent and lifetime. Chemical peels This is a strong acid used to peel out the upper skin of your face. Removing the top layer will make scars less deep.

Antique from Pandora's Box
Some mornings are prettier because you stay up just to watch that half an hour before the sunrise when everything feels like the brutally quiet sea. Of late I've been struggling with sleep and I have nothing else to do, so I often goof around the house. My father has told me several times that I should start working out or doing more physical work in order to catch sleep but the truth is I don't wish to. Several things keep me awake and earlier it was daunting to think about nights and worry about my sleeplessness. But one day I was goofing around in my room and I was trying to find some of my father's old novels to read and pass the time. There is a shelf in my house where my mother keeps everything that doesn't fit the entire set up of my home. While scavenging for a novel there I came across a very strange wall clock. It looked like it was a million years old but something about it fascinated my curiosity. The next afternoon, I asked my mother about the wall clock. She was busy with the house chores and didn't pay a lot of attention to my question back then. Later in the evening she found me fiddling with the clock on the roof. She called me out from the stairs itself and asked me where I got it from. I told her I found it on the shelf that both my father and I refer to as the Pandora's Box. I could see that she was super annoyed at me for taking it out and I could almost predict the next sentence that would come out of her mouth "garal garal cheez nikaal leti hai" ( you keep poking your nose around things ). I asked her what's the deal with the wall clock and why is she being so upset about me finding it. She told me that the wall clock is an antique that has been passed on in our family from generations. It had great significance but more importantly sentimental value. My grandfather had passed it to my mother because she was his only daughter. She couldn't find any place to keep it safe and with time had almost forgotten where she had kept it. I asked her if would give it to me so I could get it fixed, with the batteries maybe. She scoffed and told me that antiques don't need to be "fixed" they need to be preserved over time. It's funny but I never thought about how important some inanimate objects become of a history of people. It's almost as if you could wonder about the time and the kind of people who held this before you. Since then I've been an avid collector of antiques. I like to keep them safe and try to collect as many as I can. While there are antique shops that I often walk to and buy from, of late, I've discovered that I can find them on eBay or any other alternative to eBay which provides great value for money as well as some very interesting antiques.
