How to Break a Man…

Imagine a small office filled wall-to-wall with file cabinets and that each is wide open and its contents are either taped to the wall or dumped in a pile on the floor.

Welcome to the mind of the human male..

This little slice of chaos has managed, somehow, to avoid any type of useful evolution and has wandered throughout history spreading the joy, literally, since day one.

Amazingly, this “mind” has spearheaded the march of humanity for thousands of years and has remained relatively unchanged. It’s a glorious mix of Disneyland and a three-pole strip club where no idea is “off the table” or unreasonable.

Jerry Seinfeld sums it up quite nicely.

Reality, sadly, is the enemy. It’s the “Mary Poppins” of the mind. The end begins with a good cleaning and gasp, organization, but to break a man completely, to bring him to his knees, one needs only to steal his cape.

Scissors; What possesses these fickle things?

Time to trim the sideburns as, apparently, I’m not a “mutton chop” kinda guy. I grab a nice pair of barber scissors and trim the mass down on the right side of my face; all good. Switch hands and go for the left; the hair folds into the scissors. I turn them 180 degrees; same thing… I switch back to my right hand, get into a “wonky” position and the damn things work. What is this Magic!?
