Things I Don’t Believe In And/Or Just Don’t Care About

  1. Flu shots. I don’t get ’em. It’s fine if you want to, but I don’t.  Vaccines, on the other hand, I am all for, and will take whatever is necessary.
  2. That antibacterial gel stuff.  What does it do other than give you a false sense of cleanliness and contribute to the development of resistant strains of bacteria?
  3. Biking on the sidewalk, even though there are places where it is encouraged by signage and permitted by law.  I don’t buy it.  There is exactly one stretch of sidewalk on which I will bike, and that is only because it is the only safe way to cross through a Y intersection to get to our house.  If I have to bike on the sidewalk otherwise, I will walk my bike.
  4. Lady Gaga.  There.  I said it.  I really couldn’t care less.
  5. Protein shakes.  While I understand that they play an important role in the lives and diets of many and are firmly ensconced in the Academy of Broscience, I don’t believe in them, and refuse to consider any diet that would require incorporating them into my life.

  1. Amen, sister. Except I kinda like Lady Gaga. Things I don’t believe in:

    1. Quantum mechanics. George is sure it explains things; I think it’s almost certainly bullshit.
    2. Labels. I bought a Marimekko (fancy Norwegian designer lady) purse at a garage sale for $10. It holds stuff good and looks nice. I frequently get asked “who is your bag”. I tell them, and then I judge them for being shallow.
    3. David’s Bridal. Fuck them, they are such assholes.


  2. Oh. My. Word. I just laughed so hard at number 4. I feel the same way about Lady Gaga, and I can’t figure out why the world seems so enamored. At least there’s someone else who agrees with me so I don’t feel completely old or out of touch.
