Things they would not teach me of in college

I believe in going to specialists and experts. I believe that everyone has their niche. Following that line of thinking: if someone is going to college to be a psychiatrist, why do they have to take another 4 years of the same crap they took in high school? Isn’t this distracting them from the...
There is no political solution for our troubled evolution

There is no political solution for our troubled evolution

Why do smart people have to dumb themselves down to be accepted by the masses? For example, I don’t like the pandering that politicians must do to win votes. I don’t like that Hillary Clinton had to eat a hotdog and do shots with the locals in an attempt to prove that she’s a...
Is she really going out with him?

Is she really going out with him?

Have you ever noticed all of those commercials and TV shows that have a balding, overweight, below-average looking, average income guy with a spunky, cute, fit chick? Why is the overweight, broke guy on King of Queens married to a hot, fit girl? It’s not believable. People in real life aren’t...
Mr. Telephone Man, there’s something wrong with my line

Mr. Telephone Man, there’s something wrong with my line

Alright, I’m getting really tired of the cell phone company’s automated prompts that play before you leave a voicemail for someone. When I call someone, I just want to leave a message quickly, not jump through a bunch of hoops! Why do they have all of those silly prompts:...
Now don’t just stand there bust a move

Now don’t just stand there bust a move

I’m really annoyed by people who don’t take the bull by the horns and bust a move in life – mainly because I know that the world will not wait for them. There are talented, skilled, awesome people out there who will never be recognized because they’re unmotivated or simply...
Meet the new boss…same as the old boss

Meet the new boss…same as the old boss

Yes, it’s true: some bosses are straight up assholes and out for themselves! But many (like me!) are just a squirrel trying to get a nut and aren’t killing other squirrels to get it. I used to be a really flexible, nice boss who wanted to positively influence my employees. I used to say sorry...
We all want to change your head

We all want to change your head

OK, I have a complaint about the way most people argue. They start out with seemingly good intentions, and what appears to be a pro-problem-solving approach, but when the stakes get higher they just want to “win,” NOT solve the problem. I understand that solving the problem usually involves...
It’s an institute you can’t disparage…or can you?

It’s an institute you can’t disparage…or can you?

I don’t understand the romantic fairy tale image people have (mostly women) about marriage and weddings. I don’t know why women are giddy with excitement when they are proposed to. I don’t get why the male has to lure and woo the female with a shiny expensive object to seal the deal. I always...
If you can judge a wise man by the color of his skin…

If you can judge a wise man by the color of his skin…

One subject that keeps coming up in the media is about Barack Obama being the “black” candidate. This is only half true and therefore not entirely correct. Obama is half white; therefore he should be referred to as mixed/multiracial or whatever the politically correct term is. Since...
