The yardstick

January 28, 2012

Do you ever have one of those days where you really wonder if whatever you’re doing is all just a big waste of time? Worried too that wondering about it is just more of a waste of time? (then, stressed that the worrying about the wondering…you see where this is going right?) I’ve found the yardstick. Don’t spend any more time wondering, worrying or stressing. Just ask yourself one simple question – Is it more or less useless than this:

If you’re doing something as or more useless than that, the answer is yes, if it’s less useless you may still have hope.

Now, if you find yourself on ebay, bidding $256.00 for this, get help and get it fast.

    Ha! I no longer feel guilty about the 20 minutes I spent on Pinterest 😉

    Fuck this dissertation. I’m going to type on toilet paper.

      Hmm. I suppose typing the dissertation on toilet paper would be a really bad idea.

    Why don’t they printed bad literature as toilet paper? Really stick it (no pun intended) to the bad prose!

      It would give you some reading material, and would be so much better than leaving books and other paper in the bathroom!

C'mon, tell me what you think. You know you want to!
