Per usual, I tried to figure out the potential messages of the story. Perhaps:
- Don't share your ideas with people, because they will rename them, color them a different color, and call them their own, making them one zillion dollars.
- If you loan your friends a lot of money for their pet projects in an attempt to be supportive, they will inevitably meet someone who is flashier than you (although not any more attractive) and will be easily seduced by this flashy, substance-free person and will drop you like an AT&T phone call.
- Justin Timberlake can be a decent actor when he is playing a character exactly Justin Timberlake.
- "The internet is written in ink, not pencil."
