Aug 1 2011: The standard adult behavior pattern is to repeat the same activities over and over unless disaster forces a change. ←Start tweet essay: Old Age
Aug 1 2011: Aging and death may be cruel, but they are a fairly efficient culling mechanism for those who have become unproductive anyway.
Aug 1 2011: Most of the inertia of old age has little to with age itself but with an accumulation of investments that make change seem impossible.
Aug 1 2011: The young say, "I have plenty of time. I'll change later." The old say, "It's too late for me. I can't change now." So when?
Aug 1 2011: Why must people "slow down" in old age? Given the dwindling time, shouldn't you "speed up" to accomplish all you can?
Aug 1 2011: Our 2009 philosophy essay: "The Secret of Eternal Youth" http://j.mp/17w31K - Old age is a philosophical problem, not a physical one.

Aug 1 2011: Conspicuously missing from http://www.dickipedia.org : John Mayer. Perhaps it is because he's a douche, not a dick. (a fine distinction)
Aug 2 2011: All philosophy boils down to a simple question: What should I do?
Aug 2 2011: Free will may be an illusion, but it's the best we have.
Aug 2 2011: If you need sleeping pills to sleep, caffeine to stay awake, alcohol to have fun and television to be amused, do you really exist at all?

Aug 2 2011: Don't look to logic to predict people's behavior. Instead figure out what they are emotionally invested in and need to justify.
Aug 3 2011: Advertising is fraud that happens to be legal because the lies are only implied not explicitly stated.
Aug 3 2011: Other people's mistakes aren't your problem—unless you work in advertising and are actively encouraging them.
Aug 3 2011: The chief mistake of fools, throughout the generations, is to kill the messenger bearing bad news.
Aug 3 2011: The mark of maturity is to be able to listen to advice and process feedback without getting defensive. Immaturity is the opposite.
Aug 3 2011: Everyone claims to welcome criticism. The acid test is, when it is actually offered, whether they actively absorb it or respond with anger.
Aug 3 2011: If you want to destroy someone in the long run, hand them success they don't deserve.
Aug 3 2011: The joy of falling in love is mitigated by the realization that you are now constrained and trapped by this person.
Aug 3 2011: Love always seems more pure from the outside looking in.
Aug 3 2011: Many times we say, "Now there's the perfect couple," only to see them break up a short time later. Things weren't as simple as we supposed.

Aug 3 2011: When people you care about do stupid and self-destructive things, your main comfort is that you don't.
Aug 3 2011: It is good to care about others, but your main responsibility is you.
Aug 3 2011: The opposite of a "fashionista" is a "functionista"—one who cares about how things work, not how they look.
Aug 3 2011: "Gourmet" is just another way of saying you care about the surface of things, not what lies underneath.
Aug 3 2011: Fashion, fine food, luxury goods, entertainment... fields where function is irrelevant and jerks reign supreme.
Aug 3 2011: Never trust any success you don't fully understand. It could fall out from under you at any time.
Aug 3 2011: Boom-and-bust is the natural cycle not just of economies but of individuals. Success leads to hubris leads to collapse.
Aug 3 2011: He who gets everything he wants in his youth has been set up for a disastrous adulthood.
Aug 3 2011: Anger is ALWAYS self-destructive, NEVER productive. Take whatever action is necessary, but in getting angry you only hurt yourself.
Aug 4 2011: Anger accomplishes nothing except to prove your impotence and frustration.

Aug 4 2011: ++++ BEGIN tweeted essay: "Environmental Trivia" ←Start tweet essay: Environmental Trivia
Aug 4 2011: Have you done something trivial to help the environment today?
Aug 4 2011: Whenever an advertising campaign says, "You CAN make a difference!" the proposed action is usually trivial and benefits only the advertiser.
Aug 4 2011: Paper or plastic? Paper is biodegradable but kills trees. Plastic is non-biodegradable but uses less landfill space. OH GOD I CAN'T DECIDE!
Aug 4 2011: "Every little bit helps!" is the delusion of weak people who have given up on making any real changes in their lives.
Aug 4 2011: Instead of making real changes in their own lives, people would rather take trivial actions on a global scale, where control is an illusion.
Aug 4 2011: If recycling helps the environment, the real question is whether the benefit gained is worth the personal effort put into it.
Aug 4 2011: Energy-saving light bulbs are smart, but even smarter is moving to a smaller living space needing less light and heat. No one promotes that!
Aug 4 2011: In doing trivial things, you are wasting your own precious time that could be used for more important and effective activities.
Aug 4 2011: Almost everyone promoting "environmentally conscious solutions" has a product to sell.
Aug 4 2011: "Buy this yogurt and we'll donate 2 cents to breast cancer research." Do you have a right to feel good about this?
Aug 4 2011: Health and environmental claims for a product are almost always distorted. They don't tell you about the other costs and damage.
Aug 4 2011: Just because a product claims to be "low fat" doesn't mean it's good for you. What else is in it?
Aug 4 2011: There are no simple environmental solutions. Every effort to "help" the environment has its costs.
Aug 4 2011: In the end, you are likely to help the world only when you can monitor the results of your actions and modify your techniques accordingly.

Aug 4 2011: Does taste matter? Isn't nutrition more important? If taste does matter, how much is it worth? How much would you pay for taste alone? ←Start tweet essay: Taste
Aug 4 2011: RT @jessmar100: @BadDalaiLama SUGAR ! extra sugar
Aug 4 2011: Taste is valuable only to the extent that it leads you to good nutrition. That is its original and authentic purpose.
Aug 4 2011: People who dedicate themselves to taste—in any domain—lead very shallow lives.
Aug 4 2011: Taste is impossible to quantify, so people look to others to tell them how much it is worth.
Aug 4 2011: People evaluate taste based partly on appearance and cost—things that never directly strike the taste buds.
Aug 4 2011: Caviar is very expensive, so people assume the taste is exquisite, but if it were free and plentiful, would anyone be drawn to it?
Aug 4 2011: Celebrity chefs are essentially bullshit artists with food instead of words.
Aug 4 2011: Without a doubt, some things taste good. When you try them for the first time, you say, "Wow!" and want to try them again.
Aug 4 2011: All tastes fade with repetition. You can eat the same thing in the same way, but you'll never regain the same high as the first time.
Aug 4 2011: The first bite tastes great! The second is good. The third is okay. By the fourth or fifth, even the greatest thrill is routine and boring.
Aug 4 2011: Taste varies according to your nutritional needs at the moment. At times you hanker for different things, so no taste is ever the same.
Aug 4 2011: "Taste constancy" is the illusion that the same thing must taste the same every time you eat it, but that's not what your nerves register.
Aug 4 2011: Your favorite food, on different occasions, I'd going to taste different, even become unappealing at times. This is normal.
Aug 4 2011: Even the most appealing food on the planet is going to start tasting gross when you eat too much of it. This is nature's stopping mechanism.
Aug 4 2011: Taste is a guide to nutrition, but not always an accurate one. Our ancient hankering for sugar, salt and fat has departed from modern needs.
Aug 4 2011: Junk food has appeal only on the first few bites. After that, taste recoils and tells you to stop—if only you would listen!
Aug 4 2011: Taste doesn't encourage you to eat the whole bag of chips. By the end of the bag, they taste awful, but you pay no heed.
Aug 4 2011: Compulsive eating is not a taste problem. Taste is telling you to stop by taking the joy away, but you keeping eating anyway.
Aug 4 2011: Compulsive eating is equivalent to an addict's attempt to regain an earlier high. You keep upping the dose but the feeling never comes back.
Aug 4 2011: Taste is wise if you listen to it. As soon as food stops tasting good, you should stop eating. Throw the stuff away!
Aug 4 2011: Eating after taste has faded is a form of compulsive hoarding. You're trying to sock it away for lean times that will never come.
Aug 4 2011: Taste is an illusion. It is the promise of something that can never really be achieved.

Aug 5 2011: "Image fraud" is when you create an image that implies something you know isn't true. That's photography in general, especially commercial. ←Start tweet essay: Image Fraud
Aug 5 2011: Well-composed photos always look better than real life.
Aug 5 2011: "Photos don't lie" is not true. They lie by showing you only a carefully selected view of a complex scene.
Aug 5 2011: Photography can make the innocent look guilty simply by selecting the angle of view and moment of capture.
Aug 5 2011: You pay a photographer to manipulate imagery in your favor—sort of like a lawyer.
Aug 5 2011: The more beautiful and appealing a photo is, the more detached it usually is from real life.
Aug 5 2011: Most pretty photos capture something only the photographer saw at the time. If you had been there, you probably wouldn't have noticed.
Aug 5 2011: Commercial photography promotes the deception: "If you buy this product, everything implied in this image will be yours."
Aug 5 2011: @keem Same as always.
Aug 5 2011: If you create a false public image for yourself, don't be surprised if people start believing it and treating you accordingly.
Aug 5 2011: If you present yourself to the world as a god or goddess, you can expect to have stalkers, people who think you can solve their problems.
