Fucks (A Manifesto) http://fucksmanifesto.smallpict.com/ Thu, 06 Nov 2014 17:56:51 GMT Thu, 06 Nov 2014 17:56:52 GMT en-us Fargo v1.68 http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html The Fucks and How We Give Them (A Manifesto) http://fucksmanifesto.smallpict.com/2014/06/11/fucks.html <p>The older I get, the fewer fucks I'm willing to give.</p> <p>The fucks I have to give are few, finite, and often fleeting. Therefore, I'm careful about those that I give.</p> <p>There are only so many fucks one can give in a lifetime anyway.</p> <p>I only want to give my fucks where they can make a difference.</p> <p>I am strategic with the fucks I give.</p> <p>I am intentional with the fucks I give.</p> <p>Most things we encounter in life are not worth our fucks.</p> <p>Most "news" is designed to trick us into giving our fucks to things that don't deserve them or where they have no value. </p> <p>Most "stuff" is designed to trick us into giving a fuck about things that have no true utility.</p> <p>In fact, many things in our society are purpose build to trick us into giving a fuck where it matters least and serves us even less.</p> <p>Just because someone tells me I should give a fuck does not mean I should give a fuck.</p> <p>Just because you give a fuck does not mean I should give a fuck.</p> <p>Our fucks are our fucks alone to give.</p> <p>It's OK for you to give a fuck about something that I don't give a fuck about.</p> <p>Where we give our fucks is our own business.</p> <p>I judge no one based upon where they choose to give their fucks. Frankly, I don't give a fuck.</p> <p>Unless, you give a fuck about something that directly harms me. In which case, I will likely give a fuck.</p> <p>In order to expect anyone to give a fuck about you, you must first give a fuck about yourself.</p> <p>My giving a fuck about what you think of me is directly connected to how much of a fuck I give about you.</p> <p>Most ideas we encounter are worth listening to but, then, quickly deciding if they are worth a fuck.</p> <p>The really important things are worth at least two fucks.</p> <p>Any time given to whether or not one should give a fuck about something is time well spent. Except, where not giving a fuck should be obvious.</p> <p>Always appreciate when someone gives a fuck about you. Make sure to thank them for giving a fuck.</p> <p>The next time you feel yourself getting outraged, stop to ask yourself if you should really, truly, give a fuck about it. You will find that most of the time the answer will be, "No. I don't give a fuck."</p> <p>Our enjoyment of life increases with the less fucks we give.</p> <p>Giving a fuck about things that are worth it are what make life meaningful.</p> <p>I do give a fuck about offending people with this message through the profanity with which I've chosen to deliver it. But I give more of a fuck about calling it like I see it, telling it straight, and not fucking around.</p> <p>I give more than a few fucks about the truth (as I see it).</p> <p>Truth is the perspective you choose to give a fuck about.</p> <p>And, I give a fuck about sharing this one with you.</p> Wed, 11 Jun 2014 17:33:54 GMT http://fucksmanifesto.smallpict.com/2014/06/11/fucks.html
