Defy Invalid Social Norms

disnxThe elders have their noses in the air and a stick where only their proctologists can find it. You know it. I know it. Even they probably know it. You can say something about it!

Definitely not a laydown, yet not so directly offensive as to put everyone off the moment you show up.

This is one of my t-shirts (you can also get it put on a hoodie or quite a range of other wearables), which I would be obliged if you would look at and perhaps consider adding to your wardrobe, which in turn will kick a few (very few, sadly) dollars my way.

So today I ran into a link on a website that announced that it led to an interview with someone of general interest to me (it doesn’t really matter who.) I clicked on the link, it is fair to say, with considerable interest. But as it turned out, the link led to a video of an interview. I felt let down. Not a little bit; a lot. I lost interest in pursuing the presentation; and this change of heart happened fast enough that it caught my attention as a mini-event all by itself. I didn’t watch. Instead, I did a little thinking, and here’s what I came up with.
