Sir Richard Branson (net worth: $4.6 billion) just tweeted out this photo of himself and Lucas Duplan, whose hilariously disastrous app he invested in last year. The caption is "this is why I invest in startups." Let's think about this.
Look at him! Smiling a trillion pound grin with a young boy who would soon waste his money. Possible reasons that this tweet happened:
- Insanity caused by the inhalation of too much gold dust (AKA "king's lung")
- He doesn't know that Clinkle is an industry punchline synonymous with waste, mismanagement, and business catastrophe
- He doesn't care that Clinkle is an industry punchline synonymous with waste, mismanagement, and business catastrophe, because he's worth fucking $4.6 billion and why would he care about anything.
- He clicked "upload" on the wrong photo.
My guess is either number two or three.
