    Wild Concept, Eh?

    I am sorry for being sarcastic but it seems like less and less folks are using their brains in direct conjunction with their mouths these days. In worst case scenarios, a mouth may go rogue and any intelligent communication with the brain becomes completely severed and all you...

    Not Necessarily Before I Speak...

    Before I act: I plan.  I investigate.  I create lists of benefits and consequences. I fear for how my actions will be judged by others. I reassess my plan. I ask others what they think. I budget for time & money & other...

    If There's Time Enough..

    I think a lot before I act, if the situation allows it. But I do consider my gut-feeling. So I'll think about it, think about the facts, think about my gut-feeling, and in the end I'll end up with a conclusion on how to act.

    I wish more people would do so.

    I get so annoyed when I see another obvious hoax being shared massively. Really, when there is a problem with your bank account, you'll hear that from your bank. If complete strangers tell you, it's probably fake. And if "official" statements are full of typos, caps and multiple...
