Environment isn’t everything, but it’s a lot
As a kid, I wondered why no one ever rode around on a zebra. After all, they’re just a type of horse, right?
Well, it turns out that they cannot be tamed. They’re just too ornery and wild. Which, of course, begs the question, Why are they so ornery and wild?
The reason is because they live where lions live. And, over thousands of years, they’ve adapted to dealing with them.
For example, when they kick, they don’t randomly kick like a horse with one leg, instead, they balance on their front legs, aim, and then kick – with both legs.
It’s made me anti-fragile.
Zebras don’t look like much. But you can only kill them, capture them, or let them be; they can’t be controlled. They won’t be submitted.
You gotta respect that.
On a different note entirely, I dropped the price of The Men Made of Stone to $0.99 on Amazon for the rest of this week because I’m trying out a few things with them.
If you enjoy my writing here, give it a go!
