What a Joke

People who expect you to do something that they won’t do themselves are laughable.

People who expect you to think and act exactly the way that they do are pathetic.

People who demand honesty from you but refuse to be honest in return are loathsome.

Those types of people don’t warrant my attention, but I’m aware that they exist. They’re living train-wrecks which are hard to miss.

They can shove the quotes that they mindlessly repeat, but don’t heed, up their collective arseholes.

If one doesn’t abide the quotes that they cram down the throats of others, then said quotes are rendered meaningless.

Boring fucktards seem to love that sort of repetition. I’m not one.

Comparison Shopping

It’s been quite a while since I last bought audio equipment. The brands I used to favour are difficult to find, now that people rank inferior quality high and shove their opinions about same down your throat at every opportunity.

This is why I don’t do Craigslist, eBay, Etsy, or anything else sold solely online and by subjective opinion.

We all know the old saying about opinions, no matter the variant of the saying.

In light of that, I’m pretty sure that my opinion matters to you as much as yours matters to me.

Which is: not at all. There’s no sense in lying about it. Stop doing it already.

Friday Fun: Undeniable Facts (Re-blogged)

This post warranted a re-blog while I work on some future ones.

Eyrie Of An Aries

Instead of the usual β€œFive on Friday” post, I wanted to publish a few thought-provoking quotes inspired by casual observations about personal interactions. It would be nice if they evoked genuine conversation.

I’m not holding my breath.

So Predictable

I knew that you’d pull that tired, old trick again.

I’m not certain what it is designed for, but it is definitely on a timer of sorts. I literally laughed out loud when I saw it.

You just proved my point, yet again. Another timely reminder.

Too old to learn anything new or meaningful. Little imagination and no creativity.

And so bitter! Tell me: why the chip?

Vocabulary

Learning is fun. It is something that I have always enjoyed, thanks to the teachers I encountered when I entered school.

Some teachers aren’t so great, and that’s an unfortunate thing. Kids should enjoy learning something new on a daily basis, and carry that into adulthood.

Learning new words to add to your vocabulary is an awesome thing to do. Merriam-Webster and the OED are excellent dictionaries to use for this purpose.

Only the uneducated, ignorant and / or slang-addicted get their definitions from the online “urban dictionary.”

This explains why communicating with others is difficult. They aren’t speaking the same type of English that I am.

Misery

Have you read the book, or seen the movie? Both are excellent.

The book was written by Stephen King between 1985 – 1987. It focuses on Paul Sheldon, a writer famous for Victorian-era romance novels involving the character of Misery Chastain. One day he is rescued from a car crash by crazed fan Annie Wilkes. Annie transports him to her house and, once finding out what he has done to Misery in his latest book, forces him to write a new book modifying the story – no matter what it takes.

The movie was released in 1990, starring Kathy Bates as Annie Wilkes and James Caan as Paul Sheldon. Superb acting by both made the movie worthwhile.

Some of us with celebrity status of any sort value our privacy. The deluded make it necessary, as evidenced in the book.

Psychotics and their enablers do no good service to anyone except themselves, if only for a time.

The survivors of Waco and those 13 young, abused prisoners in California might know what I’m talking about.

Misery loves company. That much is obvious.

People Are Strange

People are a funny lot.

Some throw shit against the wall. If it sticks, they slap a price tag next to it and call it “art.”

What falls to the floor gets smeared onto paper and bound. A price tag is slapped on it and it gets called a “book.”

Those people consider themselves a success as an artist and / or writer because other people buy their shit.

I suppose it is a living for them. Catering to the lowest common denominator is easy.

Fast food vendors, Wal-Mart stores, NASCAR races and reality shows have their loyal consumers as well.

I’m not one.

Three Friday Songs

Time to get the weekend started!

Here are three great songs to commence the Friday festivities.

Chess, Anyone?

Stratego. Risk. Chess. Poker. Billiards. Darts.

Those are games which require a good amount of finesse, strategy, and skill.

A bit of luck helps in some games, as does recognizing an opportunity and grabbing it when it presents itself.

People used to provide genuine challenges.

Few know how to set up an old-fashioned board anymore. I doubt they really know how to play the game.

The Master Baiters

Fishing is a fun and useful hobby.

You can feed yourself and your family if you are good at it.

Successful fishing requires knowing which waters support the fish you’re after.

Proper bait is also required. If you use old, rotten bait you will catch nothing but bottom-feeders.

Some people like catfish, I’d wager.

I’m not one.
