I also offer the service of making decisions for people, given the pain involved in making decisions. This costs US$250/decision for every decision after the first decision, which is free. Discounts for Eth, xDai, Solana, and USDC. I will take blame for all the results of this decision, and none of the praise. If you like the results of the decision, I will be happy to keep it a secret. If you don't like the results of the decision, I will be happy to own that decision publicly. E-mail me at ray[dot]doraisamy[at]gmail[dot]com if you would like me to make a decision.

Alternatively, for the equivalent of US$500 per point of blame, I will take the blame for any decision. This includes an ongoing explanation of how I am to blame for this decision.
