Brass Tacks

2015-06-01 20:00:31.043821+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

So this floated across my Facebook feed:

"If you trust in yourself ... and believe in your dreams ... you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren&apost so lazy" --- Terry Pratchett, in The Wee Free Men]

And then this did: The Onion: Open-Minded Man Grimly Realizes How Much Life He's Wasted Listening To Bullshit.

And... yeah... life these days.

It's a Terry Pratchett quote (which I am now going to steal). What's happening on 4th June at 4pm?

I think it's when The Long Utopia is published.
