  1. You are not special.

    You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake, as the rant goes.

    Neither am I, of course.

    At least, I don't think I am. I have to operate under that principle; there's a scientific name for it that escapes me. Something along the lines of the mediocrity principle, which basically asserts that nothing is a beautiful and unique snowflake. Not even snowflakes.

    Sure, an individual flake might be unlike any other flake in very minor details, but in general, ...

  2. Whores.

    There's an anecdotal bit of dialogue, most often attributed to George Bernard Shaw (though often attributed to Churchill or Twain) that goes something like this:
    * GBS: Madam, would you sleep with me for a million pounds?
    * Actress: My goodness! Well, I'd certainly think about it...
    * GBS: Would you sleep with me for one pound?

  5. I think it's time for a change. (tech heads may be interested)

    I've had more than my fair share with consumer frustrations. Now at a crossroads as to whether I should cancel these outlets and start anew.
