    Swipe:


    correlation not causation
    This is a hilarious and perfect explanation of how "Correlation is not Causation" πŸ˜‚
    People often say this phrase, and while I know what it means, it's still a little confusing.
    I love how this image TOTALLY SUMS UP THE PHRASE, because obviously the roof isn't caved in because of the cat, rather the cat just happened to sit there.

    Thought:


    A weird phenomenon happens when I try to improve my own copy:
    Since I've looked at my own pages hundreds of times, it makes it REALLY HARD to come up with better versions.
    However if I look at copy with fresh eyes, I can instantly spot changes πŸ€”

    Uplifting:


    When I was young and poor I would sneak into fancy events to meet rich people.
    My fail-safe to get inside was:
    β€’ Wear suit or tuxedo.
    β€’ Bring a cheap wine glass and fill it from a flask.
    β€’ Wrap a cocktail napkin around the stem.
    β€’ Tuck an old lanyard badge under suit.
    β€’ Talk on phone
    ...Then walk right in 😏

    Looking (and acting) the part would get me into these fancy shindigs where I could meet people out of my typical socioeconomic range.

    Picture:


    I got a little power-washer-happy the other day and drew a smiley face πŸ™‚into the sidewalk:
    smile power washer
    Β 
    Then I looked up "Power washing art" online and found people doing stuff like this:

    -and-
    owl power wash
    It's like a temporary tattoo for your house πŸ˜‚

    You can make awesome "Bullet Points" with Emoji, like:
    β€’ This

    ✘ This

    I like Emoji bullet points better sometimes, because often many programs will have too much margin and wasted space on bullet points...
