16 minutes of shame
Back in 1968, when Andy Warhol created his classic “15 minutes of fame”, neither he nor anyone else knew that he was talking about the entire human race. If the history of the world were 24 hours, man’s existence would only take up 15 minutes.
If we do not start to learn from nature, our 15 minutes may soon be over. Therefore I like to reinvent his classical expression:
16 minutes of shame.
