    The Best of Advice, the Worst of Advice

    "I mean, don't rely on it all the time but the pullout method is actually pretty effective."

    "For a career, do what you love. Worry about the money later."

    "You'll feel better if you talk about what's wrong."
    "I don't have psychological problems." --Madrigal

    "When you write about shooting Polemarch in the head, that's more like a first-person view, like you're there looking down the sight of the gun." --Utisz

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    "No one gets pregnant on their first time."

    "It's perfectly normal to tell people where you were born and what your mother's maiden name is on meeting them."

    "Don't thinK, just feel!"

    "Trust your instincts."

    "Hitchhiking is a great way to get around."

    "You'll know if there's a train coming."

    "If you burn down his ancestral homeland and kill his wife and children, he'll realize you are not to be fucked with and give up."
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    "don't care what others think" leans towards the worst category.
