My Resolutions

Scientists have embarked on this attempt to study the success rate of New Year's resolutions. Personally, I have resolved not to sign up. But I like the tip from the professor running the show as reported in The Guardian - '...make only one resolution: if you are an obese, misanthropic, SUV-driving smoker, Prof Wiseman recommends picking just one aspect of life to improve, to increase your chances of success.' Then it would take me four years to become a nice, thin person. Resolutions, I suppose, are expressions of the usual human unease with their place in the world. My favourite survey result - which I may have dreamt - is that on an average day, the average person feels a little worse than average. Even if he's not actually in pain, he's worried about his obesity, misanthropy etc. and oppressed by his failed attempts to do something about them. As well as not taking part in Wiseman's study, my resolutions are to get by and be funnier. Making people laugh is a generous act. And, as with all resolutions, it's even funnier when you fail. Look at any fat, smoking bastard in an X5 or a Cayenne. Funny? No?

  1. Bryan, I think that's one of the wisest resolutions a man can make, though I suspect in your case, you're setting yourself an easy goal. Have a good New Year too.

  2. You might not 'get by', Bryan. You might be run over by some fat, smoking bastard in an X5 as you make your way to a meeting of FIS. That might put a dampner on things. Although you'd probably see the funny side. Happy New Year.

  11. 10.7LAccording to Proposition 46 Committee's request, if replica watches a new 4 score of 550 points, six points to reach 520 students, can participate in the oral exam in the coming year in the spring. Many students replica handbags of the 46 oral exam is not very replica handbags understanding, is often asked 46 people the importance of oral as well as the how to prepare for 46 oral and other issues.

    Here, we still require all 46 qualified replica gucci candidates to seriously deal with this exam, because replica chanel there is no better than the examination itself to one person put pressure. We replica chanel think, if even the examination is not to make good preparations, then the students heard daily practice, for it will be to ignore replica tag heuerignore to ignore, then when are we going to strengthen our spoken it again?
