My Friend Adam’s Post Titles

My friend Adam has such a way with titles. For example, on his blog today:

A Friendly Note to the Assholes That Use the Parking Lot at Work

Oh my goodness. And he’s also linked to a Reuters article titled “Cambodian cuts off penis to feed spirits”. Where does Adam find this stuff?

  1. It’s a gift, it is.

    I mean, I’d rather have the “Make gobs and gobs of money” gift, but between this one and my mutant power to locate good restaurants, I’m not complaining too much.

  2. It IS a gift, dude. I have that restaurant-locating power, too. I find these places somehow, no idea how, though it’s slackened a bit since I moved to Jeonju. But then, my cooking skills are on the upward incline, so it’s all good.

    The other power I have seems to be to meet very odd people. I’m not sure it’s completely a gift; sometimes it’s a curse, but sometimes, I must admit, it’s a delight.

    Oh, yeah, and then there’s my power for spilling things. It’s always maximum coverage. I swear, if there’s a gene for it, they’re gonna clone me and bring back napalm someday. Brrrrrrr.

    In GURPS, that’s the -15 pt disadvantage, “Weirdness Magnet”.

    I’ve got a mild version of that, too – when I worked at a bookstore, I always got trapped in interminable conversations with the conspiracy nuts. Kind of where I developed my fondness for kook books.
