The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Google Exec

A Google executive was killed by a 26 year old prostitute on his yacht. Why would such a man risk everything for a whore?

“The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground. But in love poetry of every age, the woman longs to be weighed down by the man's body.The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life's most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?”

- Milan Kundera


  1. But if he had a wife and five kids, his life could not have been unbearably light.

    Maybe the pressure of work and family were too heavy and he sought lightness through whore and drugs.

  2. The PC term for a prostitute in England is 'Sex Worker' - ie, "She works in the sex industry"

    Another thoughtful video, Ramz.

  3. Yeah, I dunno here but I get the impression that RamZPaul is sorta inching closer and closer to nihilism.

  4. I guess when you've been married with kids, hooking up with a whore seems exciting.

    I once knew a woman who worked as a 'massage therapist' for Google in Irvine, CA. The stories she told me about Google execs... lol
