    Kafka-esque

    Thank God most schools in the US stopped teaching anything worth reading, because in the 90s I was getting a bit annoyed at the over use of the term Kafka-esque. Thankfully the metamorphosis of modern education into a big joke has caused a reduction in the use of this banal trope...

    Practice Makes Perfect

    It's not true, children. You will never become perfect. I used to think if I set my mind to something I could do it no matter what. It's not true though. Nobody is perfect, and kids need to learn this and stop wasting their time on things they're not meant to or don't want to do...

    For a Variety of Reasons

    A lot of phrases that are overrused, are used to reinforce stereotypes, and do not enable people to put much creativity into their vocabulary.  The same phrases are repeated over and over to the extent that their words becoming meaningless.   Today my detested...
