Bullshitting yourself is what gets things done
Welcome back class, to bullshit 102 “Bullshitting Yourself”. Thank you to those of you who have completed (BS101) This particular method of bullshit is one I discovered a while back and it is the method I use when I must get things done. I have found this effective and I thought I would make this one part of the curriculum. Continue reading
What is the truth about LED light bulbs? Thank you for looking past the title, I am Tom Nardone and I am at the helm so you should know I am going to make this exciting and fun. You may think you don’t give a shit about light bulbs and perhaps you don’t. I think you are about to discover that my bullshitting ability knows no limit.
As Americans, we are fortunate to live in a country where our government cares so much about us,
they even make sure we don’t buy the wrong light bulbs. Yes as sad as it is many of us who grew up with the incandescent light bulb will be saying goodbye to it and saying hello to one of two different light bulbs; the LED light bulb or the compact fluorescent. This is the thing I explain to people every day at work and I thought you would benefit from my council on this matter. Continue reading
The Commitment Coefficient
I do not like making commitments to other people. I do not appreciate being put in a position to where other people depend on me. Chances are if you ask me to do something, it is most likely something I do not want to do. If I were to give you a commitment, well then I have now added pressure to the task. Continue reading
Handshake: The Origin of
Handshake (s) , if you believe what you read in history books, dates back to medieval times. It was a way to show you were not carrying a weapon and it would set the recipients mind at ease. While this may still be true in n Texas, the handshake has taken on many other meanings, purposes and types.
Today the handshake is simply the way we as humans, at least in this country, greet one another. The only problem I have with the handshake is the obligation to shake a hand simply because it has been extended to me. In some circumstances it is a little presumptuous, but I have no problem with the custom itself. It is quick, easy and appropriate enough. I don’t believe I would feel comfortable cupping a man’s balls on our first meeting, so a handshake sounds about right. Continue reading
In our society today, we have rules. Rules or laws are involved in everything we do. Most people abide by the rules of their society, but no one obeys all the rules. When it comes to rules people make their decision mainly on the basis of two things; what is the penalty, and what is the likelihood of being caught? That is just the particular type of assholes we are as Americans. For the record, I proudly count myself among all of you assholes in this regard. Continue reading
Many people in their jobs strive to be the best and I think this is great. I think it is what makes a company great. When you have people so committed to being the best that they give it their all, and do their very best. I do my best while I am at my job, and I rather enjoy it most of the time. I would always rather be at home, but there are days when I have fun at work. I do take pride in what I do while I am doing it. Many people are simply in a rat race.
Some people unknowingly bend themselves over a barrel and patiently wait for the talcum-powdered fist to make its introduction. This is often how the rat race begins. Continue reading
I was going into a local sporting goods store recently to buy some ammo for my pellet rifle. As I was walking through the store I noticed a button up shirt hanging on the rack. I noticed it because I was wearing the exact same shirt complete with a small tag under the pocket that read “Columbia”. I could not figure out what my shirt was doing in the asshole section of a retail sporting goods store. Mine came from Goodwill. Continue reading
I was driving home in traffic the other day and was mad as Hell at the level of chaos. I thought it would be nice to live in a world without traffic. I pondered what it would be like if I was the only person on earth.
One day I wake up and all of the people are just gone. I am literally the last man on the earth. What would I do? Continue reading
I don’t eat anything from fast food restaurants ever. There are several reasons not the least of which is I find it to be incredibly unhealthy. There are benefits to it I suppose. It is quick, easy, and there are often times tempting prizes or toys that come with certain combo meals; hey, I get that. I worked at a fast food restaurant for three years when I was in high school and perhaps I have seen too much.
There are many of you, I suspect, who frequent these fast food places, and I fear many of you are not aware of the rules of fast food restaurants. If you read me, or if you find yourself on my blog for the first time, then I love you. I would not want to see any harm come to you, or the people you care about so please, heed my words for your own sake.
