1.
So, Tony, what do you think has brought the biggest change in your sport?
2.
I would say the advent of social media.
3.
It's really leveled the playing field in terms of how to get recognized.
4.
- Mm-hmm. - And, you know, kids can make their own scene in their own region and really become a pro skater
5.
without having to chase the magazines and the coverage and the video and everything.

1.
We value beauty so much, we even cast beautiful celebrities to play ugly people in movies!
2.
And then we praise them, and give them Oscars, and tell them they're being brave.
3.
That's not brave!
4.
You know what's brave?
5.
Being ugly every *bleeps* day!
6.
But we can level the playing field a bit.
7.
If beauty is such a privilege, that means that being unattractive is a disability.
8.
And I want all the perks that come with that.

1.
What was your biggest motivation in starting your business?
2.
I think number one is really leveling the playing field.
3.
- And so we came up with the idea in high school. - Wow.
4.
We were looking at a stack of fashion magazines.
5.
Saw the same person, the same face, the same story, the same narrative.
6.
And we said, something's gotta give.

1.
We teach an extended day.
2.
And we were noticing that the kids were leaving very discouraged.
3.
And we came up with the idea of keeping a gratitude journal
4.
because it forces a happy end to the day, no matter how discouraging it is.
5.
And it also levels the playing field.
6.
No matter how successful you felt academically during the day,
7.
no matter what happened on the playground,
8.
everybody can find success in the gratitude journals.

1.
The handful of survivors came from many groups,
2.
all greatly outnumbered by their own dead.
3.
They ranged from top predator to bottom-feeder, big to small, marine to freshwater.
4.
The extinction was a filter.
5.
It merely leveled the playing field.
6.
What really counted was what survivors did over the next several million years in that devastated world.
