"AVOID your partner fantasising about other people during sex by shouting “It’s ME by the way!” every couple of seconds. @PyrrhicBuddhism"
To me, this is what laissez-faire capitalism looks like.
"RECREATE the thrill of The Lotto by not guessing someone's phone number and then giving them two quid. (via @Swissss)"
Sometimes I wonder if an attitude of presumed (semi-)foiled belligerence would be a better way of dealing with the world. "C'mon world, send some jerk to cut me off? Is that all you got! Pah!" "WELL BOO-HOO my editor crashed and took an hour's work with it" "A drippy nose and fatigue-- NICE TRY! IMMA GET THROUGH THIS"
On the one hand, it seems like a nice way of Murphy's-Law-Jitsu: there's no situation so bad it couldn't be worse, be grateful it's not worst. Real cynics are either pleasantly surprised, or just having their expectations met... maybe I could actually enjoy challenges rather than just seek validation.
But then, I guess this way paranoia lies. Also assuming everything was out to get me might give me an unreasonable chip on my shoulder, assuming everything I got was all my own two feet and my own two fists, make me think I hit a triple when I was born on third base.
pretty decent list of cultural differences, I always dig knowing about the little differences.
