Never agree to disagree

I will never agree to disagree. To agree to disagree is nothing more than declaring, "I am fluxomed by your argument so you can piss off." It declares that you do not have the skills to continue the debate. Agreeing to disagree is the adult equivalent of putting your fingers in your ears and chanting nah nah nah nah. Rise above. Do not succumb to anti-intellectualism by agreeing to disagree.

What do you do with spam? I reply.

I get it. I know I’m talking to a bot. But sometimes, I just have to reply.

Honest liana to me
Ohh My GOD You are a very handsome looking man and it’s hard for me to believe why such a handsome looking man like you be alone over there without getting ladies chasing on you.I just join Amateurmach today and read you profile and found it very interested, Well am really impressed by your profile and I would wish to get to know more about you to see where this will lead us in the future i am not here for games nor drama either would really like to find someone who is looking for something real on here there is no harm in trying would let’s take chance and see where these could lead us into.

Me to Honest liana:
I am so glad you found me! You are young and look like you would have good eggs. I am fascinated with the Duggar family and am hoping to find someone who wants to make 18 or 20 babies of her own. We can even have our own reality tv show from the very beginning!

Honest liana to me
Hello good morning how are u doing.. are u on Google a hangout for us to chat?

Me to Honest liana:
I think chatting is good. I will look into Google a hangout. I am excited that you want so many babies. I think we should live stream it all! We can video document all the babies’ conceptions and charge people to watch. Then we can live stream, like on Facebook live, the births and document every moment of their lives on blogs and snapchat. Just imagine how cool it will be with the world watching as that first baby pushes its head out of your vagina into the world. We can make a montage video with all 18 babies emerging at once! This will be so cool.

I appear too busy

I often hear "Doug, you are too busy." I have missed opportunities because people assume I am too busy and do not offer the opportunity to me. I will be busy the rest of my life. I will rest when I die. Granted, I will get my nightly sleep and I will appreciate nature and meditate but I will not rest until I die. That is to say, I want a full life. I want a life that I can look back upon and smile knowing I have contributed and made a difference. As such, I will do much. And if you ask me to do something that I cannot take on or do not feel fits into my personal mission statement, I will politely decline. If you offer me an opportunity that excites me, I will reevaluate my commitments and decide if something can be removed to make room for your opportunity. Yes, I am busy. No, I am not too busy.

Two wolves

The Two Wolves
A Cherokee elder was teaching his grandchildren about life.
He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me… it is a terrible fight between two wolves.
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hatefulness, and lies.
The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, humbleness, kindness, friendship, generosity, faith, and truth.
This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”
The children thought about it for a minute. Then one child asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”
The Cherokee elder replied…
“The one you feed.”
