Some "Liver" Samples

On “lingchi

Tony had made his point about Angie’s impending motherhood before we’d boarded our flight back to the U.S. At the airport, he’d presented me with a lovely personal gift, a custom-bound, richly illustrated hardcover history of China. Bookmarks had been placed in the sections dealing with the importance of marriage and “face” in Chinese culture. Another was placed in the chapter describing the Chinese justice system and the execution of malefactors via the traditional “death by a thousand cuts.” Formally known as “slow slicing” (“lingchi” in Chinese), the process involves tying a person to a wooden frame and cutting the flesh from their body a chunk at a time until they die. Lingchi was banned in China in 1905, though periodically a revival of the practice is recommended in the case of telemarketers, spammers, and Jehovah’s Witnesses.

On Russian Venture Capital Philosophy

I climbed into the soft leather seat opposite Illarion and we pulled away from the curb. “What do you want to know?”

“Tell me the whole story. Do not leave anything out.”

“My pleasure.” I took out my phone, pulled up our slides, spreadsheets, and infographic charts and provided the best financial overview I could on such short notice. I concluded with a competitive analysis and list of potential threats.

“Unfortunately, the one threat we didn’t anticipate was being kicked out of brightstart at a critical moment in our company’s development,” I said. “By the way, I’ll be glad to send you these files and our complete business plan any time.”

He waved his hand. “It is not necessary. We wanted to understand what had happened. When Gennady called brightstart, they were most uninformative. We decided to talk to you directly to discover why we could not anticipate receiving a return on the $100 thousand dollars we invested in theTogetherHood. By our standards, it was not much money, but still. In Russia, we have an old saying —’If the hen stops laying eggs, you can still have a meal to eat.’”

This sounded vaguely ominous. “Is that an actual Russian proverb?” I said.

“No. But it illuminates. I am sure one day it will be.”
