11 things I want to stop learning


There are some things I seem destined to learn over and over again, and gosh, I wish I could stop learning them already. For example:

  1. Unplug it before you open it.
  2. If you don’t want to do it tomorrow, you won’t want to do it in three months, either.
  3. Just because Apple makes it doesn’t mean you need it.
  4. Put the blackout curtains up in the kids’ room on the first day of spring, not the first day of summer.
  5. If you think it’ll look great as soon as you put on your Spanx, don’t buy it.
  6. A blender is not a suitable substitute for a food processor when it comes to making pesto.
  7. Don’t use a rolling ball pen on an airplane.
  8. If the episode opens with a dead female body, there’s a strong chance it features a rape scene or disturbing account thereof.
  9. Liquor before beer, never fear…
  10. Dave Winer and David Weinberger are two entirely separate people.
  11. Trust your gut. It’s never wrong.

    I can’t believe you’d confuse those two Davids

    Very good advice! I have learned many the hard way as well. The two Davids are certainly very different, and I’ve met both of them, but their NAMES do take an extra second to distinguish sometimes.

    I totally fall down on #11 (trust your gut). I do it most of the time, but regularly ignore it (mostly because all my friends keep saying “go for it – he’s a really great guy!”)
