Philip "Phil" Jackson has determined that the biggest problem in the world is stupidity. "Most people don't seem to have basic Common Sense, but if they have a list of rules to follow, I have found that they will do so willingly." So after years of experience living he has decided to help out the ignorant by compiling the missing life rules into an easy to read and understandable format.

Live Your Bumper Sticker

| July 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

There is an issue plaguing our streets and highways, massive amounts of false advertising. This particular problem, unlike most instances of advertising fraud, is not being committed by big business, but by individuals.  They are not living their bumper sticker. “Of what could I possibly be speaking?” You ask astonished (unless you read the title […]

Dispose of your butts

| April 3, 2012 | 1 Comment

I have no problem with people smoking. If you want to smoke that is your thing. I mean you’re an adult. If you believe a little pleasure today is worth fewer years of life, some of which will probably include intense pain, who am I to tell you differently? I’m even one of those people […]

Cubie Interruption

Another day at work, staring at the computer screen or the cloth covered walls of your cube. If it wasn’t for lunch, coffee breaks (or smoke breaks if you hate life that much), and the meetings you must attend, you could completely cocoon up and actually complete some of those tasks that have been lagging […]

To Forward or Not to Forward

So you’ve just finished reading that amazingly blessed email. You know, the one about the girl who stood up to the school bully and rescued the tortured two headed turtle only to find out it was her recently passed father come back to prove his love by throwing up half digested fish in the shape […]

You Must Obey

| February 16, 2012 | 1 Comment

It’s understood (not legal, just understood) that driving about eight mph over the speed limit on an interstate is okay. This understanding is actually built into the speed limit (expected, not permitted). If it was unsafe to travel at the understood speed, the speed limit would be lower. Now you must realize, this understood limit […]

Back to Third Grade

Let’s start with math. In particular, what does “less than” mean? The symbol used in mathematical formulas is: <, as in 3<7 (three is less than seven). Don’t confuse it with it’s sister sign, “greater than”, which points the other direction, like this: >, (7>3 — seven is greater than three). Note: Did you notice […]

You’re sitting in a meeting. It may or may not be a meeting in which you are: interested, participating, understanding, listening, when your mobile phone vibrates. First, let me congratulate you on setting your phone to silent mode. Whether you just got lucky because you keep it silent while at work or because you always […]

Stop Not Stopping

| January 24, 2012 | 0 Comments

The obvious (you’d think, but apparently I need to say it anyway): When you approach an intersection where the red light on a traffic signal is lit (for the color blind, it’s usually the top light) or where there is a blinking red light or if there is a red octagonal sign with the letters S-T-O-P […]

Driving Definitions

| January 3, 2012 | 1 Comment

Lane numbering begins at the left most lane and increments by one for each lane to the right. Therefore the three northbound lanes on a highway are: The leftmost lane, the passing or fast lane, is the number one lane. The middle or driving lane, is the number two lane. And the rightmost lane, the […]

Public Respect

| January 2, 2012 | 1 Comment

We’ve all heard the axiom, “Children should be Seen and Not Heard.” This is actually a fairly old idea, but it still has some merit today, but only some. Children should be listened to and therefore heard; they are people after all, albeit small only partially educated people. They excel at simplifying issues, as another […]
