Ten life-lessons I learned over the last two weeks
Posted by Louis Brandy on 29 June 2009
- The reason we invented civilization is so you can do one thing really well, and give money to other people to do everything else for you. I discovered this during my move. Movers charge a lot of money. They are worth it.
- There is no such thing as one-coat paint. Don't believe the hype.
- People you know in real life will mock you if you write a blog. As they should.
- Don't write something you don't believe, just to be provocative. People who don't know you that well might take it seriously.
- Never trust an Austrian talking about power.
- The more people who go to a meeting, the more efficient it is. I have no idea how. I can't explain this.
- Hard consonants are funny. If you need an arbitrary noun for a joke, choose one with good hard consonants. Tuesday is the best day. Seventeen is a good number. James K Polk. Buicks. This also explains why a well-placed 'fuck' makes jokes better.
- The egg came first. I've seen through the bullshit.
- I have never been more wrong about anything in my life than twitter. Sorry twitter. Good luck Iran.
- I am still correct about the vast majority of twitterers.
