Give Up
« on: July 27, 2005, 08:26:34 pm »
Finding life on the outside a little too tough?  Hate all the the "thinking" you indulge in, the feeling that so much of the world has missed out on the joke that the punchline isnt even funny anymore?

Then give up.

Go on.  Go crawling back, take your rightful place in proper society again.  Start watching more TV, and I don't mean documentaries or anything you may you learn from, but mind-numbing soaps and "talk" shows, where you can laugh at the freaks who come on.  Get your opinions from a big national paper, go back to caring more about which celebs are shagging who than how much your CEO swindles from your pension fund.  Vote for the puppets on the left or right, whichever one takes your fancy, as it makes so little difference.

Oh, but you didnt mean that? Well, whats your solution Mr HotShot?  Because from where I'm standing, you dont have one.  Oh, but this, but that...but you may get knocked down by a bus tomorrow, or suddenly shit gold bricks.  Your excuses are as weak as your are, and so are no longer needed.  Maybe you could find another way, but not by regressing.  And the start of the path need not be the same place as the end.

But no, I see your mind is made up.  Go on then, you would have been a liability anyway.

Fine piece of writing Cain. I think a lot of people would get a boost from it.

Also, that illustration is excellent, 000.

Net made this lovely flier, which I neglected to post, for some reason.  However, if you like it, I suggest clicking the link.  Thanks Net!

I may have to start leaving self-help literature in the churches' leaflet racks again.

No, a better place to leave porn is in the legislators offices.

I tend to leave rants, flyers and other assorted tomfoolery in the racks. The churches already keep an eye out for me doing anything more extreme than that. This kind of flyer is just about the perfect example of the kind of thing I tend to put in there, though usually I go for something with a slightly more "religious" feel.

Bump, because I plan on using this this weekend.

Thanks, Cain!

You have a copy?  I missed this the first time around, thinking I might print a few and hide them in certain books at the library.

No, I was just going to plain-text them.

Trip or Cain might still have one.

I explicitly gave Cain all rights to the PDF I designed for him, so it's his call. I think those ifileit links expire after a few months...

Also, Trip's was quite good, REPOST PLS.
