    Important articles need to be saved until you’ve got enough time put aside to read them properly!

  3. Rrr says:

    jb, I put aside your comment until I have time to read it.

  4. Son of Glenner says:

    “Procastrinaton” – What a big word!

    I must look it up sometime, to see what it means.

  5. M27Holts says:

    My old Grandma used to tell me…”Procrastination is the thief of time”…

  6. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: Thanks for that; saved me from having to look it up.

    BTW Happy New Year 2023, everyone!

  7. Jim Baerg says:

    Is there some way to become an anticrastinator?

  8. Paul T Seed says:

    M27Holts reminds us (in the words of his Grandma) that ”Procrastination is the thief of time”. Can I recommend the fantasy author Terry Pratchett, and in particular his book “Thief of time”.

    Perhaps my New Year’s resolution should be to find out what anticrastination is.

  9. M27Holts says:

    Aye. All have a good year, without the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. However, the cosmic joker can summon DEATH (and his horse “binkie”) for those whose sands of time have run out…

  10. M27Holts says:

    My own mortality was made apparent to me when the pathogen Ecoli managed to get into my prostate gland. I hope none of you suffer the ridiculous pain on passing water that I did. I really did see the arse of satan in those horrendous moments…but that was just the raging fever. Thank Fleming for antibiotics….

  11. Succubus ov Satan says:

    anticrastination would presumably be rushing hastily into things

  12. tfkreference says:

    My resolution is to stop procrastinating.

    Well, technically it’s last year’s.

  13. Laripu says:

    The online etymological dictionary tells me that cras is Latin for tomorrow, and that therefore procrastination is pushing things forward to tomorrow.

  14. samhuff says:

    RE:Jim Baerg

    Yes, you can become an anticrastinator, but you lose you professional status.

  15. M27Holts says:

    Well the problem with tomorrow is that it never comes….

  16. Rrr says:

    M27: Was that you, Rhytmics?

  17. tfkreference says:

    Free beer tomorrow!

  18. Son of Glenner says:

    Why push things back to tomorrow when you could push them back to next week?

  19. Len says:

    I can’t plan that far ahead – I keep putting it off.

    Best wishes to all for 2023 !

  20. Rrr says:

    Compulsory Swedish literary sidetrack, but a bit on track:

    Famous comic author Fritjof Nilsson Piraten has a discreet tombstone with the inscription:
    “Here under lie the ashes of a man who had a habit of delaying all for another day.
    However, in extremis he improved, and actually did die on 31 January 1972”

    Off my own feeble memory, so not exactly verbatim guaranteed.
    One of his many tall tales told about a man who waited forever for his evil aunt to finally pass and leave him flush with cash. The old hag lived to be well over 100. On her stone he had this carved: “Those that the gods love die young”

  21. M27Holts says:

    Again my Grandma…”The Devil looks after his own”…

  22. paradoctor says:

    I resolved to make no resolutions. I broke that one. I also resolved to break my resolutions. I kept that one.

  23. Donal Feran says:

    More than thirty-five years ago I resolved to never again make another New Year’s resolution. I have been able to keep it ever since then.

  24. paradoctor says:

    On December 31 I made three New Year’s resolutions:
    1. Not to make any New Year’s resolutions;
    2. To get to bed before midnight;
    3. To break all of my New Year’s resolutions.
    I broke resolution #1 when I made it; I broke resolution #2 at midnight; and I broke resolution #3 as much as I did not. I figure that I kept 1/2 out of 3, which equals 1 out of 6; which is a relatively good ratio.

  25. Laripu says:

    I’ve recently been reminded about this monologue about religion but Emo Philips. It’s worth the time, just over 4 minutes, to get to the punch line.

  26. M27Holts says:

    Laripu. Tis an old joke in many other guises…but delivered in a unique way by a comedian I had never seen before.
    Anyway, currently contemplating the vagaries of bi-lateral knowledge of existance…I personally do not have empirical evidence of its deletarial effects. Have any of you got a wife and girlfriend on the go? 🙂
