Welcome, "Gaping Void"

Welcome, "Gaping Void"

Look, over to the right. No, down a little. That’s it.

Yes, campers, every day or so, a warm, fresh Gaping Void will appear in that spot in the sidebar. For those unfamiliar, Gaping Void is the business-card-size philosophical treatise/cartoon by Hugh MacLeod.

Hugh is probably best known for his wonderful treatise, “Ignore Everybody” — a bracing dip into the waters of self-expression and self-confidence. It begins:

“The more original your idea is, the less good advice other people will be able to give you… You don’t know if your idea is any good (until) the moment it’s created. Neither does anyone else. The most you can hope for is a strong gut feeling that it is. And trusting your feelings is not as easy as the optimists say it is… Feelings scare us.”

That’s also why market research is so often short-sighted and futile. It misses a lot of great opportunities simply because the people they survey have never encountered an idea like yours before, and simply don’t know what to make of it.

So the moral of the story is… If  your idea feels right, go for it!

    … Quote:Slapnuts “Lets take a look at how the media treated the Bush twins or Sarah’s kids.”Oh you mean like Bristol who has just wtertin a book on how she got pregnant by a brainless hillbilly called Levi, whilst she was semi-comatose through booze?That Sarah’s kid?Can you imagine how Fox News and the right-wing press would deal with Obama if one of his kids eventually ever went through the same process?Their morale outrage would be deafening, as is your hypocrisy now.Are you totally inept? You get in your immoral attack on a young woman/Bristol then proceed to compare an imagined scenario with one that is real; justify the bad behavior by claiming that supposed behavior might be worse. Prove it? Name one attack on Obama’s children aside from the time Beck was making fun of Obama lying that his daughter was walking around the white house calling him on the golf course to ask “daddy have you plugged the hole yet” Lefties are nuts. You have an excuse for everything. The horrible behavior is justified because I know, if, maybe, someday, could be, probably, IF, the righties would be worse…So with that logic I could execute you for you certainly will hurt someone someday, maybe, could be. You are just plain immoral and depraved and completely projecting. It is that simple. Now compare Bristol to half of your countries teenage girl antics, in fact your own family, then ask yourself how you have the utter gall to use the word hypocrite. Some people lean so far to the left – all thinking matter falls out.
