TWO GUEST ARTICLES
I had to go to the dentist for three hours Tuesday, including my lunch hour. Then when I got home I just relaxed, having finished out the work day after surgery and wearing myself out a bit. I'll share all the details with you tomorrow. You know you want to hear ALLLL about it. For now, a few guest articles by a fellow who is after my own heart in short tempered sarcasm, grumpiness and cussedness.
Thinking back over my life I now realize that one of my most rewarding qualities was and is I'm very lazy. Oh, I've worked very hard when absolutely necessary or when coerced into it. usually, by someone who possessed a puritan work ethic( if it isn't about to kill you,your doing it wrong).
I realize now that my aversion to hard work is well grounded in sound reasoning.First, hard work makes you tired. So,if a situation arrives where you might want to exert yourself(use your imagination) your ability to perform in championship form will be affected adversely.
Second, think of all the times you have worked real hard. Did the ends justify the means? Was the difference between ball busting hard and reasonably easy a hour or less? You wasted that hour anyway resting afterwords.Looking back over your life, has hard work made any real difference anyway?
Take any day of your life you wish and ask yourself,if I had called in sick that day what effect would that have had in the grand scheme of things. If you died tomorrow, the world would go on just like it did for 1000's of years before you showed up. Working hard is a ego thing. Your over-inflated sense of importance makes you think that what you do matters.
Look at television. A home improvement show where you are doing some remodeling on your home,instead of being a pleasant experience becomes a nightmare of delays, bad weather, late deliveries. Why, some asshole producer decided it would be more exciting with a time limit (which they make it seem is a matter of life and death).
In the far east the practice of zazen(sitting meditation) is revered. In America it is referred to as fucking off.
Lastly, I often hear people say"hard work is good for you" or "hard work never killed anybody" are you high??!! It sure as hell has killed people. They say if you work hard you will be healthy. Healthy is just the slowest possible rate at which to die.
I'm telling you,why take the chance??
Loner vs group Survival
There is a lot of discussion about loner vs group survival among the prepping community .
Liability warning:The opinion about to be expressed is mine and mine alone. I do not take any responsibility for any injuries sustained as a result of being stupid enough to follow my advice.
First let me say, I am a advocate of loner or loner plus one survival strategy. those of you who have minor children or those of you who are grand parents and are raising grandchildren because of the excellent job you did raising your kids have had the choice made for you.
In groups there will always be a alpha male who will rise to the top and assume command. If you can develop a taste for his ass cheeks, no problem. However, if you are used to making your own decisions you will have to find a way to kill him.
If you do succeed in killing him, you may be met with cheers, a sigh of relief or deep seated resentment. Worst of all you will have inherited the job of alpha male. When assuming command always remember what happened to the last leader of the group.
Assuming your leadership is met with acceptance or your group is to gutless to make a move against you, congratulations ! You are now the proud leader of a group of whiny,needy batch of gutless "survivors".
In spite of being de facto leader there will be a underlying feeling that all the major decisions should be decided by concensus of opinion..This will require you to kill at least one more member of your group. Questioning your authority must be dealt with immediately.We have seen how well democracy worked to preserve our nation.
Eventually these morons will realize that anyone can be defeated if the numbers of the opposition
are great enough. Hence, a mutiny and mob violence directed against you.is forthcoming.
Do you still want to sit around the campfire and sing kumbaya?
