Simplification or Getting Rid of Stuff

De-Clutter Mind Map
So, the wife and I are on a decluttering kick. We’ve grown tired of all the stuff. Stuff, stuff everywhere, enough already! What do we need all this crap for? It just takes up space.
I told my wife Kathy about the A Thing A Day challenge on Unclutterer and she has taken it on with gusto. The basic premise of the challenge is to remove one thing a day from your house or apartment. Try it, it’s very liberating.

Don’t confuse uncluttering with minimalism, it’s not about getting rid of everything but getting rid of things you don’t need or rarely use to free up space by giving away, throwing away, selling or recycling. You might be surprised at how much uncluttering your home also unclutters your mind and gives you more time. Less stuff means less time spent cleaning, less time spent looking for things in a pile of stuff and less time spent moving stuff around (especially when you’re expecting company).

Of course the taking things out of your home is only half the battle, the other half being not bringing new stuff in (or at the very least removing one thing for every thing you bring in). This is hard to do in our hyper-consumptive society but the recent economic downturn has made it a lot easier for many of us to cut back on our unnecessary spending. The simplest way way to keep the clutter down is simply to buy less stuff.

Teenager gets sack tapped, loses testicle.

A Minnesota teen had to have one of his testicles removed after a falling victim to a “sack tapping”. I’m thinking somebody is unclear on the definition of the word “tap”. Not only has the poor bastard lost a nut but he’s going to have to move away after high school or face listening to one nut jokes for the rest of his life.

Joran Van Der Sloot Suspected in Second Murder, Nancy Grace’s Head Asplodes.

van-der-sloot-holloway  Joran Van Der Sloot the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba is now wanted by Peruvian authorities in connection with the death of a young woman whose bloody corpse was found in his Lima hotel room. When I heard this I had to put CNN’s house harpy on to see if her head would explode live on air.

nancy_grace_devil

No such luck.I don’t know why Nancy Grace hates Van Der Sloot so much, he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her career. Frankly I don’t think she wants this guy locked up, as long as he’s free she can keep flogging the corpse of Natalee Holloway for ratings like she’s been doing for the last five years. Grace and Van Der Sloot have become some sort of sociopathic killer/ attention whoring TV  lawyer hybrid creature that really needs to nuked from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Kendra Wilkinson sex tape revealed, 1% of world yawns, other 99% say “Who?”

kendra I guess that after you’ve been dumped by an octogenarian and realize your husband’s NFL career is on the downside all that’s left is for those tapes you made with an old boyfriend to “mysteriously appear”. She might as well cash in now so she can get some larger implants and keep her career going for another year or two.

Walk on highway, get hit by car, profit?

So, who takes directions from Google without questioning if it’s a good idea to walk on a state highway? Apparently Lauren Rosenberg, she’s suing Google for $100,000 because Google maps “told” her walk on the highway and she got hit by a car. I’m guessing that if someone had told her to “go play in traffic” when she was kid she wouldn’t be here today. File this story under “Darwin”.

Old Man From Bus Fight Vid Tased @ A’s Game

Did you watch the bus fight video below? Well, it looks like Tom Bruso (known as “Epic Beard Man” around the internets) don’t take sh*t from nobody and he takes a tasing @ 1:16 into the video just to prove how hardcore he is. I hope that when I’m 67 I’m in good enough shape to go around getting tased at ball games and beating the crap out of guys half my age on the bus.

My New Barbie Joke

In honor of Mattel’s Computer Engineer Barbie I have penned the following (with a little help from an old “Divorced Barbie” joke):

A man walks into the toy store to get a Barbie doll for his daughter. So he asks the assistant, "How much is a Barbie?"


"Well," she says, "we have Linux Barbie for $7.95, Windows Barbie for $19.95 and Mac Barbie for $29.95.


"What's the difference between them?"


"Yeah, well, it's like this. Linux Barbie is kinda homely and hard to play with out of the box, Windows Barbie is decent looking and does everything you could want and Mac Barbie doesn't do as much as the other two but she's fabulously dressed and really pretty."
