That's simply not true. "Bad vibes" are frequently extremely helpful. As an example, so-called "bad vibes" are what prevent you from unlimbering your johnson and taking a leak on the side of a building - that and exposure laws - but the social construct is probably more powerful than the trivial penalty assigned by law. The social construct generally prevents you from even forming the idea.



Negative reinforcement is a key part of any learning process. Without the sanction of failure, the majority of people do not learn. Some people don't learn even with extreme sanctions for their behavior (so-called sociopaths), but mental illness isn't really the issue.

Baby Powder! Keeps your private regions dry, itch-free, and unabraided on those Iron Butt type runs we do from time to time.

A Remington 700 BDL in 30-06 with Hornady 168 gr moly-coated boat tail hollowpoints backed with 55 gr of IMR 4350 will never fail you.

Martin Guitars are absolutely awsome, since they started using adjustable truss rods. Before, on my God, you never wanted to go from playing a Telecaster to a D-anything. The Pain!



Come to think of it, I'd have to throw the Telecaster, into the mix: simple, sturdy (damn near unbreakable) easy to fix. And, you can use it for clobbering a drunk or knocking out a wall; you'll just need to re-set the intonation afterward. The Stratocaster comes in second, if you lock-down the Whammy Bar; that tremelo system's a nightmare.

Those amazing bungy nets with hooks allowing you to carry the requisite case of beer in place of an absent pillion. Fscking Amazing they are.

Yeah, I got an editor who gets Annoyed at that, too. Guess THAT'S what I get for reading, The Classics.



You'd think I know better, considering how much I absolutely hate MELLVILLE and FENIMORE COOPER!
