A pessimist is one who feels bad when he feels good for fear he'll feel worse when he feels better.

"The WUZGOONNA and the DIDDIT are natural enemies, seldom found in the same environment."

-Mike Gregory-

 

For example: One day, I decided I Wuzgoona clean the kitchen, but it was six weeks later that I actually Diddit.

Those who can, do; those who can't, teach.

I don't think I can come up with a better one than this posted on BHO a week or two ago. It still cracks me up.

I can't play banjo worth diddly-squat.  However, I'd like to start teaching it.  How should I best go about this? 

[P.S. I really need the money that teaching could bring in, so I can't afford to &*%# things up.    wink   ]

Owen, practice the art of public speaking, dissembling and circumlocution. Act pike a prima donna, an undiscovered genius, don't let any mere student question or doubt the wisdom of your approach to banjo playing.. There are a lot of laughs in this thread. Here's another thought: Don't try to catch the knife you dropped.

Thanks David, but that sounds like a lotta work.... maybe easier to learn to play banjo??  But I'll keep in in mind, just in case nothing better is offered up.  wink

Edit: That  "not trying to catch the knife" is a good one.

Bubba, that wouldn't be the voice of experience we're hearing, would it?  cheeky

Back when I was trying to farm I was using a cultivator with mounted harrows.  After considerable use, the harrow tines  become worn to a pretty sharp tip.  So, as was normal practice, when weeds got caught up on the harrows, I'd just lift the harrow and sweep the clump of weeds aside with my foot.  Only this particular time, I [absentmindedly] dropped the harrow on my foot...   tang went thru the top of my workboot, broke a toe bone, and stuck into the boot sole.... so I then had to lift it off.  "Yeowch!" indeed.  [Edit: David.... if that previous one was yes, this one might have you rollin' in the aisle.]

Owen, like most intelligent animals we learn from experience.

Indeedy, David.... that was +/- 25 years ago, and I haven't done it since!   

I seem to recall reading/hearing that one of the characteristics that sets "us" apart from other animals is that supposedly we can learn from the experiences of others...although I think as research re. other animals advances, maybe that no longer holds true?? ... or at the very least the gap (?) is shrinking??   [Edit: Possibly from both ends??]

Owen, As long as we breathe and think, I hope will learn. If not,we are doomed.
