More fun with Top Tweets
No offense, Rev, but God sounds like kind of a passive-aggressive jerk.
"Hey, whaddya got there, God?"
"Oh, nothing. Just something I'm planning on giving you."
"Really?! Oh, cool! That's nice, thanks!"
"Sure, no problem."
"So are you going to give it to me?"
"You have to ask."
"You have to ask for it or I won't give it to you."
"What the fuck? You want me to ask for something that you already planned to give to me? Why? Actually, you know what? Fuck it. If that's how you're going to be, just keep it."
It was probably a divorce or typhoid fever anyway.
Ugh. Tony Robbins fucking bugs, doesn't he? You know what's impossible, Tony? Living the rest of my life without working and without having to peddle self-help bullshit to gullible middle managers via a headset mic and a PowerPoint presentation. So how can I do that? Push out of the "comforble"? Take some massive action? Specifics, man. I need specifics.
The amazing thing is that a ton of people retweeted this and favorited it and whatnot (and, God help me, it pains me to use the term "retweeted" but I guess that ship has sailed) and it doesn't mean anything at all. I mean, I guess it's saying that you can make impossible things happen if you get out of your comfort zone and take "massive action," but that's total bullshit. If your house is being foreclosed on and you can't find a job and your unemployment benefits just ran out (oh, BTW, make sure to Thank a Republican Congressman for that), the only "massive action" that's going to fix shit up at that point is knocking over a 7-Eleven. DON'T DO THAT. But you get my point.
How did "The Secret" work out for you, after all? Get everything you wanted?
