Have you ever just had one of those moments where you stop and think to
yourself, "This is it. This is how I become a super villain." Mine are starting to come one on top of the next.
I knew I was evil from a very young age. I was always been very well organized, and really, that's the thing about evil. It's always got a plan. It's just that, lately, I feel like things are coming to a head. I feel like, at any moment, someone's going to push me a hair's breadth too hair and BOOM, there's my super villain gimmick.
"Bullshit is everywhere. (Are the kids still in here? We'll deal with that later.)
Bullshit is everywhere. There is very little that you will encounter in life that has not been, in some ways, infused with bullshit. Not all of it bad! Your general, day-to-day, organic free-range bullshit is often necessary, or, at the very least, innocuous. "Oh, what a beautiful baby. I'm sure it'll grow into that." That kind of bullshit in many ways provides important social-contract fertilizer. It keeps people from making each other cry all day. But then there's the more pernicious bullshit. Your premeditated, institutional bullshit, designed to obscure and distract. Designed by whom? The bullshitocracy.
Mama always said, if you can't be a good influence, you just have to be a horrible warning.
The best of my many original (de)Motivation Posters and possibly my all-time favorite platitude. As far as I'm concerned, you either wake up every morning of your life and work like a dog to meet the world's expectations, or else you get on with the business of unabashedly enjoying your life without shame. Nothing in between has ever made any sense to me.
