    Simplicity made simple

    Tired of hearing protracted explanations about situational context? Does life seem needlessly complex to you at times? Do you miss first grade? Wouldn't it be nice if everything fell into nice neat easily understood categories?

    Well wish no longer, because here those dreams can come true! Yes that's right, one can simply place everything into clear black and white categories simply by posting what thing or phenomenon belongs to which class. It's easy - watch:

    boring -
    trigonometry (oh heck, let's just toss calculus in there too while we're at it)

    interesting -
    Lord of the Rings
    movies where things blow up

    cool -
    nitro burning funny cars
    The Ramones

    uncool -
    anyone on a college Board of regents
    square dancing
    Terre Haute, IN

    yummy -
    chocolate cake
    pepperoni pizza
    Arrogant Bastard Ale

    yucky -
    black licorice

    Feel free to add your own categories....cool/uncool countries, 'ethnic'/'unethnic' foods, scary/friendly, cute/ugly
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    You went 1 for 3 here...
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"
