6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person

I know there's a Cracked thread and all, but I think the article I just read deserves its own thread:

http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-harsh...-better-person/

Hands down the best serious-type article I've read on the site. (John Cheese can suck it)

I didn't think something I saw on the internet could help me as much as this did, but thanks to this I feel more inspired now. I know a lot of you in the Pit are talented and useful members of society, but I am not and I thought this article might be a good read for those of you who also aren't.

Based on intense fears of failure and rejection, I've wasted my life and have nothing to offer. Yet. I'm going to use this next year building specific skill sets so I can stop feeling shitty.

Hope someone else finds this useful, and for those of you who are already have value, go ahead and brag and stuff.

8 reasons why you shouldn't read 'X number of things that Y' lists:

1. They're stupid

2. They ignore obvious variables

3. They're just a ploy to get more site traffic

4. Most of the information is wrong

5. They are highly opinionated and subjective

6. They are generally just made up on the spot with no real thought

7. They always deal in absolutes

8. They're stupid

That's not saying those two aren't, but I get entertained from atleast half their articles.

John Cheese though, **** that guy.

Of course it's titled that way to attract readers. If you forget the format you usually have any other opinion piece. It's not necessarily without value. It doesn't kill anyone to read it.

Gad, I forgot how wadded up the Pit's panties were sometimes

The only one I actually like is Gladstone, and I guess the ones who don't write serious stuff like Bowie. The rest are assholes.

Wohey, the ghost of Ayn Rand. So full of sophism, arrogance and plain bullshit it's hardly funny. And that's just the first couple of ''truths''. The rest is some self-help hard love talk?

Whatever works for you, man.

He is the WORST of the worst! I remember when he hosted Attack of the Show (back when it wasn't shit) for a little bit. He is such a pretentious **** sucking macho dickhead. His writing style sucks too. Always has this undertone of douchiness.

No offense, not attacking you, just him.
