Rules are arbitrary. Yep. That’s why we have punishment and forgiveness.
Most people are BORN WACKO. Yep. They learn what is “nice” from their parents. Some parents aren’t nice either. Some never get straightened out. Mostly, that’s why the world is WACKO now.
Google will soon be delivering the news of the world replacing your local newspaper, WSJ and NYT. Never mind if you need to know what’s happening.
Even Wheel of Fortune Pat Sajak is weighing in. As a “celebrity”, he says his book of rules will soon be published.
