Just saw something so “astoundingly logical” (or NOT LOL) that it literally floored me. Stopped me in my tracks. And more.
And I just had to share it here!
Roger, a friend of mine (who shares DIAMETRICALLY opposite and POLAR political views to my own, hehe) sent me a meme recently on WeChat about “wearing facemasks for dummies”.
(NB – Sir Roger probably calls me something far less complimentary himself, hehe, but that’s OK! Takes all types LOL).
Now dummy or not, controversial or not, REALIST and ANTI-MASK/LOCKDOWN – or NOT – this floored me. I’d post the damn meme itself here on this email, but many email clients reject pictures embedded inside an email, so I’ll type it out here – – and Ill post the actual meme itself on social media.
Do Facemasks make Sense, the meme asks.
OK, if not, and then the dummy part, blab la bla.
“If we all run around naked, and someone pees on you, you get wet right away.
If you are wearing pants some pee will get through, but not as much. SO you are better protected (gasp!)
But if the guy who pees also is wearing pants, the pee stays with him and you do not get wet enough.
Is that clear enough?”
It doesn’t say dummies at the end of it, but I think the import is clear!
Now, this isn’t Roger’s himself – he forwarded something from Facebook. I know NOT if he meant this as tongue in cheek or not, but it floored me.
Sadly though, this is LIBERAL logic for you at it’s very best, and the worst – well … I won’t even bring it up here.
Now, on that note, the second part of the story, and what this reminded me of.
I’ve spoken about Dongguan Expat, a website me and (who I used to fondly refer to as “Major General” because of his stern baritone of a voice – great guy, heh, him who could and probably still can down a case of beer per night along with chowing down on a coupla 2nd Lieutenants) … Michael started, and that passed from hand to hand as “time went by”, and finally ended up with another person who I won’t name here, but who KNOWS who I BE talking about, hehe.
There was another friend “Uncle Bob” as well, and I believe I’ve mentioned him in passing in some of my earlier notes, but anyway, one tension were running high between the three of us for some reason (can we say Rahul raising Cain as usual, hehe) … and Uncle Bob and I “side stepped” the General and revoked permissions on a post he “allowed” in the forum.
‘Twas the night of a company party for me, and all hell broke loose at that party, hehe, but little did I know what was in STORE for me as I showed up at 430 AM in the morning or perhaps later back at home …
“Right now, only Michael, Rahul and Bob can lock this post …
I unlocked this post, and someone locked it BACK UP again.
This is NOT a pissing contest … can you PISS farther than me?
You are BOTH fired with immediate effect as Site Admins and Major Generals …
And if this sounds harsh, feel free to flame publicly.
Major General Michael sends”
(key words not just bolded, but COLORED in bright red as well. Seems I wasn’t the only one who was trashed out of his mind that night!)
That was the first and only time I’ve ever been fired from a non job by a Major General who could eat Lieutenants for an after beer snack, hehe, and it stuck in mind, if just for the sheer WAY in which it was said.
Those were the days, my friend – back in Dongguan in 2004. Quite a different time to had by all back then then today’s politically correct sissified mask wearing world, hehe.
As for the OP’s question, I’ll wear my pants, thank you very much, hehe. The nightmare that my hairy ass would wreak upon those that see me but you know what …. Hehe, but I best not go there!
And pissing contests aside, there are far more productive contests to get into my friend.
Stuff that will benefit you as you’re sitting (and what else, hehe) at home – and stuff that will get you in the BEST shape of your life
And since we’re talking Major Generals, pushup competitions are the next step to this.
Can you do MORE pushups than me, my friend?
LOL – just thinking about it makes me crack up – and I hope that’s given YOU enough of a laugh for the day as well!
OK, back soon – WITH PANTS, hehe.
P.S. – I love tongue in cheek, and Roger’s a great dude too, hehe.
P.S #2 – Here is where you can bone up on dem pushups before challenging me or the General to a pushup competition – https://0excusesfitness.com/pushup-central/
