- Marriage – I have come to the conclusion that marriage is the death of romance.
- Christmas – this is the ultimate over hyped, under performing holiday on record.
- Movie Critics – I have rarely felt a similar level of regard or hatred to a movie as the critics have.
- Almost any possession before you own it. The act of wanting and purchasing something inflates its value. Once you own it, it loses something.
- New Years Eve Parties. Too much drinking with strangers you don’t really care about.
- Talent – I am seriously wondering if its even a necessary ingredient for success. Which is not to say that there aren’t talented successful people, its just that there are so many talentless successful people that it becomes clear that its not a requirement.
- Safety – For every safe thing we do, we lose a freedom. We lose options, we lose fun, we lose courage.
- Central Heat – This was one of my musing the other day. If you grew up with central heat, you think its necessary for survival. But for hundreds of thousands of years our ancestors lived and survived without it. Its comfort, but its not necessary.
