Other people are often wiser than me, why not take advantage of their wisdom?

Just a few things to share for the day, insightful and creative things that I couldn't put better myself...

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." Robert Anson Heinlein (via ckck)

If only I'd known these things sooner...

And in case you haven't figured it out, I enjoy bacon. (best commercial quote from the radio this morning: "How can I get my wife to be more like [this preferred brand of] bacon?") Being into the savory things in life, I am rarely attracted to chocolate in purest, Hersheyest form. I prefer the daring flavors. Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice!

Hmmm, I don't think I can do many of those things, aside from planning an invasion and butchering a hog, of course.

Oh, and I'll take bacon over chocolate any day. I always prefer savory to sweet!

I worked for a butcher's shop in high school, butchering the pig should be simple enough given proper tools.

I've never changed a diaper, but I think I could manage if a crisis called for it. Given sufficient time, I could probably plan an invasion. 'Conn a ship' sounds far more involved than just driving a boat, might need to learn more about that. I cannot program a computer, I have IT professionals who do that for me.

Everything else, no problem.

Be nice and share!
