Hello! Now go away!
This site’s sole raison d-être is for me to pretend to be smart. You do not have permission to come here. If you choose to enter anyway, you waive all rights!
I don’t write stuff because I want your opinion – I do it to become famous so that I can make a lot of money, and spend the rest of my days improving my golf handicap, while showing up on the occasional radio show to comment on all the mindless stunts that our politicians seem to have an talent for pulling. I was previously considering doing tv-shows too, but I quite frankly don’t have the looks for it – besides, it would cut too much into my golf-time since I would have to switch my golf clothes for a suit in order to look wise and professional on television.
What you read in here is either based on my personal opinion and exaggerated to make a point, or based on observation which happens to be my perceived reality whether you like it or not. I do quite a lot of research, but it is the passive, selective kind: You know, the kind where you let the research come to you, where you carefully select the pieces of information that fits into your theory and forget about the rest: Just the other day I was watching a documentary about blizzards called “The day after tomorrow”, I fell asleep half way through and woke up in the middle of “The king of Queens”, but I did catch the most important bits. So now I’m an expert on blizzards – and on parcel delivery services in Queens not to forget.
The use of stereo types is intended – and well founded, I may add. Statements like “don’t generalize” or “that is so, like, stereotypical, you know” are the brain childs of conflict evading hippies, who somehow managed to get a whole Christian generation to buy into this whole feel-good, utopian, “we’re all equal” alternative reality. Sanity check, please! Stereotypes arise from a collective perception derived from multiple, independent observations and refined in the minds of a significant number of people. Consequently, stereotypes and generalizations are unconscious and formally unsubstantiated statistical derivatives generated by the human brain. Hence, shunning stereotypes by category is equivalent to abanding the belief in statistics – and I for one belief in statistics.
Oh, and I lie if I believe I can get away with it, because the highly esteemed dr. Gregory House says everybody lies, and if everybody else lies, then I’ll be damned if I’d willingly be dominated by the masses – consider yourself warned.
