If you use "educated" as a transitive verb ...

... I think you're probably a jerk. You might want to look into that because it means you've surrounded yourself with other jerks and will be very surprised when the tide goes out and you aren't wearing pants.

But, hey what do I know? Enjoy the waist-high water.

It's what you know that isn't so

<Today’s Cobb hatred comes mainly from two sources: Alexander’s mistakes and Al Stump, the ghostwriter of Cobb’s autobiography, who produced a fictionalized account so full of lies that Cobb was preparing to sue to stop its publication when he died in 1961.

Stump was such a hack that he was banned from contributing to both TV Guide and The Saturday Evening Post. “One by one he alienated the kinds of magazines that had fact-checking departments,” said a writer of that era who knew him. “That’s because he produced fiction.”>

Southern Hipsters!

<Ten years ago, serving a drink in a Mason jar was something only done in the privacy of your own home, where your neighbors couldn’t find out, or at the Cracker Barrel, as a way of getting into the Hee Haw spirit of  biscuits, country ham and Chinese-made Americana gimcrakery.

Then… suddenly…Hipsters!

Southern Hipsters!>

Gracious Living 101

After a life full of “productivity hacks” as part of an effort to optimize the little personal time available to me, I have reconsidered. As I decompress slowly in a world where I own my every waking and sleeping moment, I look for “idleness hacks”. These are small things that help to remind me of the fact that there is no rush. There will be another bus, boat, train, meal, and day.

Idleness 101 - The Shaving Brush

Shaving is no longer a hurried, sometimes bloody necessity. It is a pleasure. Working up a lather with hot water is relaxing. Taking the time necessary to do a good job is satisfying. In an email-free life one can simply do a really good job (or at least as good a job as one cares to) on every task. No blazing through tasks A, B, and C in order to get to task D.

Food is more carefully prepared and tastes better. Walks are enjoyable and re-routable based on whim. Nothing is rushed through.

Even if you are still gainfully employed, you need to carve out some space and time where you are the Master of Your Own Destiny. May I suggest that your morning shave is such a time.

Ive been using a brush for almost all of my life. and even now that I shave my noggin, I use a brush and mug. I dont think it makes me superior in any way. Just a data point. I dont know that it is any more leisurely. Or that it is better. Its just how I go about the chore. I do know it is a hell of a lot cheaper to buy shaving soap for a couple bucks for six months than a can or tube every month or two.

Winner in the Best Fallacy Category

<On the crowded, heaving South Bank one day, I passed a cruelly long line for a public bathroom. Having just exited a deserted loo around the corner, I decided to be a good samaritan and informed a lady around 10th place in line about the empty loo a few feet away. She declined to move. “I’ve already waited this long,” she said with a note of resignation. Ladies and gentlemen, the sunk cost fallacy!>

Rafiqi's FTW

<When I opened the lunch back at my office, the smell was amazing, and the chicken, onions, white sauce and hot sauce was a great combination. The chicken was all chopped breasts, and the rub on the chicken added a dimension not usually found in street meat.  I really liked the flavor added by the rub. The hot sauce was actually hot, and the white sauce was somewhat reminiscent of the white sauce at Gyro II, but without the sweet paprika topping.>

May I also recommend King of Falafel right here in Astoria. For $7 you can get their chicken platter, which easily feeds two people. But get there before the rush if you don't want to stand in a long line.

There are a few good things about living in a city. On my walk to the best butcher in New York City I passed:

A place that makes fresh cheese curds (I partook)

http://www.beechershandmadecheese.com/Home.aspx

A place that sells hot bureks (I eschewed)

A restaurant designed around Singaporean street food (not open)

Good times.

Safety as you roam the streets on foot, an available stranger to turn to, neighborhood watch, alert presences that deter malefactors.
