"We have enough “youth”.
How about a fountain of “smart”?"
Your comment on my doodle made me LMFAO!
Could it be that I’m right? I lived in California for 17 years and saw this everywhere.
"Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving. And they’ll be happy, because facts of that sort don’t change. Don’t give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy."
Thank you in advance for all the love on my birthday! The only thing I want to ask my friends is that you take a moment and pre-order my book online here for the low low price of $2.97: http://www.samuelbass.com/books.html
and spread the good word. If you also signup for my newsletter, something that only sends out sparse news and only when it’s important, I would appreciate that also. Thank you for the love and I hope you enjoy my first science fiction book.
If you haven’t already done so, I suggest subscribing to Russell Brand’s Trews on youtube for a healthy dose of togetherness and unbiased opinions: http://youtu.be/h3vrsSK7zOM
Five Signs You’re A Logophile
- You get excited when you find a word in a publication that you’ve never seen before and have to know what it means.
- You take word quizzes for fun.
- Some words when you say them make no sense so you pick it apart to understand their roots.
- You literally play with words when you write them out.
- When you misspell a word you erase the whole thing and write it right.
