Isn’t this literally what the Grinch did? Stole Christmas, then brought it all back and was hailed as a “hero” for having a change of heart over something that was a stupid and pointless decision to begin with? Read more

If Dunbar is to be believed, you can reasonably “know” about 150 people, tops. If each of those 150 people also “know” about 150 people (and assuming no overlap, which is impossible because they’re all part of your social circle), then they collectively know maybe 22,500 people.
