What I Learned This Week – Week 35

  • A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines
  • Nothing infuriates me more than that look the middle aged, stoned dog trainer gives you when your beloved pup tries to take his finger along with an offered treat
  • I am old.  VMAs?  No idea who those people were.  Are there still videos on MTV?  Like this?  And this?  And this?  One more.  The answer is no.
  • Internet commenter, ask yourself before you click send: Do you have a dog in this fight?  Does the story you just read personally affect you?  No?  Then hold on to your strawmen.
    • A woman in a short skirt on a Friday night only equals a Lambo with the keys in the ignition in that neither “owes” you a ride.  Also, either are your property and never will be.
    • A white cop shot and killed an unarmed black 18 year old.  The body lay expose to the sun for at least 4 hours and that the cop left town within a couple of days.  Anything that happened before or after this is immaterial.
    • You are wasting the world’s time.
  • Burn the phrase ‘just sayin” from the vernacular.  Everything you say before ‘just sayin” is your opinion, not a fact.  Also, it’s probably dickish.  Own that.
