Where do you do your best thinking?
Next, I guess I should clarify "best". Best would be your clearest cut the BS, no one's listening in, thinking. No self-delusional ideas. Or are you capable of that kind of thinking? Some people aren't.
We have multiple examples of people who are incapable of thinking except thru a self delusional filter. Just watch the plethora of made for TV "talent" show and you'll get an idea of one variety. Politics are another arena where there's a way too many who are deluded into thinking their way of thinking is the best or only way to look at anything.
I always ask; "where the hell did these people get these ideas? and why do they persist in them?" Well, when it come to politics it's easy to see, look at who they surround themselves. The same can be said of those "talent" shows. They're all surrounded by sycophants. Are you?
Check out who you've surrounded yourself. Do you have anyone left in your group who disagrees with you who you haven't run off or are still talking too? There's a reason you can say to yourself; "everyone I know agrees..."
Think about it.
Look at how we view the TP'ers. We all need critics. Objective critics, not the subjective ones. It's not necessarily a good critique if you know what someone's going to say before they say it. But criticism from someone with no skin in the game can be very helpful and guide you to better thinking.
Where do you do your best thinking? I have a new place. Well not really a place, unless you want to call the saddle of a bicycle a place.
On with the games!!
Mojo Friday Guidelines
Disclaimer; Kinda like the Pirates Code, they're just guidelines, meant for fun. They aren't hard and fast rules.
1) If you comment you have to recommend all comments. (in order to receive mojo you have to give mojo. It's only good mojo manners.)
2) Everything you say may be taken as a joke (so if you ask a question, expect a silly answer)
3) You must recommend the diary (and pimp it unapologetically)
4) You don't have to comment to recommend.
5) You can't steal my idea (right, like that ain't goin' to happen. It has in numerous forms, I'm flattered!)
6) Mojo mojo mojo mojo, mojo mojo mojo.
7) TexDem (that's me) is not bound by the guidelines. Neither are you
Mojo Friday Goals
Disclaimer; These are mostly here for nostalgia, the site has changed so much and the servers have been upgraded to the point I don't think we could fuck with the site with 1000 people participating. 2007 it ain't.
A. At least 300 different commenters and 1000 comments by 1:30 PM EST and 1500 by 5:00 PM EST Friday Night that it's posted.
B. 100 recommends for each comment, at least.
C. Stay on Recommend List at least five hours (this requires some strategic planning by you guys, refer to guideline #3)
D. At least 200 diary recommends. 300 would be better, spread the word.
E. And always, fun fun fun.
G. (New) Have at least 30 kossacks over 90% participation (see here for some tips).
H. Overload the servers with recommends, not to mention dominate Top Comments Mojo list. (we do tend to mess with the site with all of our recommends at one time)(also, to dominate the Top Comments Top Mojo we need at least 50 comments with over 200 recommends, see guideline B)
I. That's enough for now. (Have a suggestion? Post it.)
