stand, it decided: “Thinking is too easy a job to be left to
And now from our “Play-Action Desk” some scores that never
get reported: The Dumb: 2. The Critics Of The Dumb: 1.
Side note: These scores are never reported because no one wants
On planet Earth — at this particular juncture in it’s
development — there are two kinds of human creatures, with whom
it doesn’t matter what-they-say; those who don’t know anything,
and those who know exactly what they’re talking about.
One man claims to have a simple yet effective method in one
area — proposes he: “Never deal intellectually with any subject
or person you’ve ever heard of.”
Sheep always want to worship, or follow somebody.
Children don’t want to be told “no”; teens don’t want to be
told anything; adults don’t want to be told that time is running
out, and the old certainly don’t want to be reminded that: “We
told you so!”
And not another out-cropping from our fields of “Yes, You Can
Believe It, Or You Can Suck A Turnip”: Those who want to be
“helped” — don’t want real help.
There is an uncharted part of the human brain that tells
some muscles, and certain hormonal functions: “Hey! — what
d’you guys think you’re doing?!”
When it comes to their passionate participation in the great
human drama, no one has ever been arrested for “Over-acting.”
Many who would like to go on a “mysterious journey” like it
best, in the beginning, when the trip seems — Oh!…well…so
“mysterious” and all!
Men who don’t know much don’t mind if nobody else does
either. “Say-y-y! — then that’d just leave the Real Thinkers to
do all the worrying!” — “Say-y-y! — yo mama!”ù And now from our
Geography Desk, this report: The universal, serious — the
Tip: Never say “our” when you can say “the”; never think
“the” when you can think “mine.”
With your critical faculties properly developed — all
drugs taste the same.
A “Human Interest” story from our Meteorological Desk: When
it storms — dogs run for cover; covers run for the closet, and
closets make for the basement. “Hey! — there weren’t any humans
in that story?” “Yeah — and isn’t that interesting.”
If you need help thinking — you’re a plagiarist — pure and
Those who don’t know how to get the most from living, always
seem to find death, a fitting metaphor for life. Another:
“Strange — But True!” item — and even stranger because it is
“strange, but true.”
Our Neural Fashion Editor would like to include this follow
up to an earlier news item: “With your critical faculties
properly developed — all drugs taste the same” — and: Nothing
ever fits quite right.
One man hates only inanimate objects — and only then, for
their human characteristics. …(He says he’s far too busy to
try and figure this out.)
…..Scoop: There is a reason that some things can’t be
“figured out” — and it’s not that old worn-out one.
The dumb, so badly wanting to help one another, is primarily
what causes them to be so potentially dangerous.
“Thinking,” As Done By The Ordinary: Damming a river.
Some time prior to sixty-seven hundred b.c., after men
realized how unique they were on this world, and after they
realized how little this meant, they began in earnest, making up
all of the stuff you see now.
Under city conditions, when the sport first starts: Parents
scare their children; then fifteen years later — the children
scare their parents; then forty years after that — everything
scares all of them. New, Illegal Health Fact: Hormones do not
“age gracefully.” The reason humans put numbers on their
uniforms is just what you’ve suspected it to be.
A real thinker has a lot invested — but not in stocks and
bonds, or anything else that the collective might see capable of
a “pay off.”
When cornered: Kick, threaten, or think naughty thoughts;
you will later be judged so as to determine to what degree you
are “civilized” — although such a finding will prove useless.
But, Good luck, all the same.
“Maybe”ù is meaningless — unless you’re the one saying it.
* Don’t put off ’till tomorrow who you can “put-on” today. *
** The local gods just love-e-e a smart-ass! — Don’t believe
it?! — Just ask them! **
The reason there are so many variations written on the same
theme of the so-called “human condition” is because there is
nothing left to say.
Due to the physical conditions on this planet, most dancers
find it easiest, if not most pleasant, to favor one foot over the
other. * A real thinker can fly off the ballroom floor. *
…..Related sidebar to that last news item: A “Thinking
dancer’s”ù most obvious problem is in ever finding a band that is
playing music conducive to his desires.
From one of our reporters in the field comes this field
report-cum-query: “What is it in common with both comedians and

instead with a coal mine there.
A potential thinker who finally relents and relaxes is like
a diner on a train who — after just one meal — swells up to six
hundred pounds and leaps off to his death…(sort of…like.)
Appearance, and behavior count most with children, sheep,
and stupid adults.
The “Simple Test” remains: If you want to gauge how much of
an independent thinker you really are, just note how easily you
are offended and insulted. The “Double, Simple Test” is also
still valid: Just consider how much you think about other
people. * Hormones feel for friends — but a real bud’s neurons
would leave them be. *
…..And from our Traffic Desk, this report: Remember: Even if
a real thinker is not your friend — at least he’s his. …Be
careful and don’t skid on that ice out there.
Once men had firmly established the concept of having
“attitudes,” it was only a short putt to developing “conflicting”
attitudes, proverbs, tombstones, and confetti! — and there’s
been no stopping him — ever since.
And now for some (HA,ha): “Harsh Facts”: Once you go past
a certain age, not thinking-for-yourself — it sure is hard to
change tracks. Addendum: A real thinker doesn’t mind “harsh
facts” — since: If they don’t concern death, or root canal work
— they don’t apply to him anyway.
When one man was accused of having wasted his whole life
studying beavers, he defended himself: “Well if it hadn’t a been
that — I’d a wasted it on something else.”

commercial: When you are an identified “Intellectual” amongst
the collective, it is hard to actually ever be seen as “wasting
And now! — Now, once again! — Yes, now, one more time:
The world is divided into two groups; those who don’t mind being
placed within such a limited range of possibilities, and those
who mind intensely!. Oh yeah — the first group, in reference to
the second, said: “Well, fuck those pretentious smart-asses.”
See– when the gods are temporarily indisposed, numbers can take
over and just love-e- which ever local creatures need to be so
embraced. “Yes Professor, it is good to know that someone is
always in charge around here.” “Hurumph.” “I’m sorry — what
did you say?” “Hurumph.” “Oh.”
A Chronology: The mind was born; it perceived disorder; it
invented the word “disorder,” and now tries to change it.

middle — …but he was pretty rough there too. Editorial Aside,

local reality suddenly announced that at sundown all participants
would be shot; then at the appointed time, announced that they
would not — and then shot ’em. When later interviewed, it
noted: “Well, what else is life for! — if not ‘live and
The “Intellectuals” of the collective, must, perforce:

by himself) only does so when it suits him, and whenever he wants
to smoosh other peoples’.

part, is what everyone enjoys enough to keep them there, and

Yet another question — a “curio” — about which men seem
inclined to gather around the old campfire and discuss to the
early morning hours: Why is it that as men rise up the
collective’s ladder of academic recognition, their demeanor
correspondingly increases in silly solemnity?! …”Say there
Gabby — I done axed you a week ago now to hand me a new stick,
and throw a fresh brain on the fire.”
On this one mental planet, a man who can make good

One man started his own private newspaper just so he could
write to the Editor and complain.
A mind that won’t “take sides” will never depart the

One man’s in-town observation: “Institutions sure-e-e can
A Fact: Being able to “think for yourself” makes it
possible to manipulate others at will, bend them to your desires,
and generally take advantage of them in anyway you see fit.
Note: This is actually a “fact” after being “had at” by a happy
thinker with an X-Acto Knife.

addressed it so: “You can break-into my house — you can break-
into my heart — but I’ll be damned if I’ll let you break my
legs, crack my head, split my lip, and give me headaches from
here-to-December, and me not take any defensive action.” …(His
mind — being the sweet devil it was — winked and grinned
mischievously back at him.)
And this interesting item from our, Archives Desk: All of
the great men who ever lived left secret recordings of
themselves, and the reason you’ve never heard of them is because

some of the really stupid things they said on tape.
