I don’t normally go in for this stuff

Posted in Rant by Mike on November 29, 2007

I don’t do forwards and that sort of thing but Brent asked that I do the “5 random things” pseudo forward. Hey, the guy asked, what kind of person would I be to just leave him hanging out there?

So here you go.
By the way, if you don’t care to read, thats cool by me. Go check out the best piece of writing on the Psychosis of a Meathead or some stuff on a Super Size Me Rebuttal.

  1. I’m pro-green technology but not for the same reason as everyone else. I think the environementalists are doing the right things for the wrongs reasons. I think they are the most self serving group of doofs and they have no idea that they are. It could even be said that I am either a “Global Warming Denier” or “Pro-Global Warming” depending on your definition of Global Warming.
  2. Ideal Job: Stay at home Dad.
  3. I don’t feel that the US economy is threatened by China. It’s apples to orange, they’ll never be what we are and we’ll never be what they are going to be. I do think the US economy is threatened by the US mindset. The good news is that we have the power to help it anytime, the bad news is we may not have the discipline.
  4. I’m a hapless nerd. Don’t ask me a question that I don’t know the answer to and think you can just walk away. I’ll spend 45 minutes surfing the web with multiple tabs and come back with more information that you knew you didn’t know. I’ll bring it up again two weeks later with more obscure facts that I learned in the mean time.
  5. I suck at finishing things, not because it is hard but because it is easy. Once I have made it easy, I’d rather just let someone else do it and move on to something hard for myself.

    I gotta finish stuff. If open a task, whatever it is, I’m going to do everything I can to bring it to closure. Goals, cleaning, a set of reps. Whatever it is, I have made a comittment to myself and take that very seriously. It is a lesson I learned with the weights that has served my very well elsewhere. It is one of the hardest things I do.

    you are a person of very diverse interests

    have you considered referring to yourself as The Renaissance Man?

    consider yourself my designated advice guy for life in general from this point on

    I swear I replied to this but I guess I forgot to hit submit.
    I know. I have alot of trouble with that. The more I reflected on it, the more it bugged me. New Year Resolution I think.

    Just remember, whenever you take advice, you are taking all their mistakes and misperceptions as well.
    I think I just have diverse interests because I don’t focus enough.
