The antimatter rule—Never judge anyone

The golden rule: Treat others as you would like others to treat you.

The platinum rule: Treat others as they would like to be treated.

The antimatter rule: Never judge anyone.

Laziness Does Not Exist is a simply brilliant article that truly embodies the antimatter rule.

Why antimatter? Because it is the most valuable substance in the universe. Gold costs ~$100/gram. Platinum is about ⅓–⅔ that (~$30–70/gram). Antimatter is estimated to cost ~$25 billion/gram. The next most expensive substance is a thousand times cheaper: Californium at $27 million/gram. One of the reasons it’s so expensive is that there’s nothing you can store it in. When it comes into contact with regular matter, it turns into pure energy (E=mc²)
