12 Curses Backfire

I’m liking the closer together the text for my shorter posts so I’ll leave them as they are. I feel weird changing past posts anyway. (I may also try that formatting in the future. But no changing the past. Except for spelling errors.)

Tomorrow I’ll write a post about the scientific method, or at least relating to it in some ways. I’m incredibly inconsistent and untrustworthy about my future promises, at least regarding this blog. So in order to regain some form of integrity, and to break the curse I’ll get the scientific method post, done and Complete.

Remember most of these are potential backfirings none of them are guaranteed. (well as much as I can guarantee a hypothetical.) I did come up with some curses that had no downside, but those were either silly or fatal.

  1. You will never finish a project – you may become incredibly prolific having assistants, employees, and co-workers that do the finishing touches providing you with the time and space to start more things.
  2. Your first guess will always be wrong – you know it and you learn to trust the opposite of your instincts.
  3. You will die young – and knowing that you’ll live your life to the fullest accomplishing and experiencing far more than you would otherwise.
  4. All food will taste like dust – Nice figure and less time will be spent eating.
  5. Your children will disappoint you – It depends on your standards, and if you can convince yourself that success is disappointing…
  6. You will never have love – love is a lie, attraction + friendship + responsibility will have to do. This can also make you use your time more efficiently.
  7. Extreme Ugliness – Role as a monster in movies or plays.
  8. You’ll never learn to read – disability pay or you may even get a condition named after you.
  9. Instantly fall asleep when the sun is down – At least you get a full night of sleep. And maybe a condition named after you… (That can probably be applied to most of these.)
  10. No one will see past your appearance – This could actually be quite brutal for some people, me included. BUt it an help people learn about how to express themselves through their appearance and with repeat trial and error.
  11. You stink unbearably it hits some primal brain circuitry so people can’t help but be revulsed – you can’t smell it of course and you may be able to get jobs working with things that stink. Of you still have a sensitive stomach regarding other things, it provides you with some social distance when required and you know who your true friends are. Also, you may get a condition named after you.
  12. you’ll be generally unpleasant to be around no matter what you try – animals will hate you as well. This can help with negotiations because people will want to be done as soon as possible. But the downsides are still too great.

  1. Stop this: “I’m incredibly inconsistent and untrustworthy about my future promises, at least regarding this blog. So in order to regain some form of integrity, and to break the curse I’ll get the scientific method post, done and Complete.” Go watch “The Secret” for why.
    This languaging of you can be poisonous. And this while I was bragging about your blogging the other day.
