Real Stories from Toronto #2,646,875 – It’s All a Joke

“Why are you always laughing?  Sometimes I don’t even know what you’re laughing about!  Sometimes it’s just mean!”

- Didn’t you get the memo?

“What?  What memo?”

- It’s all a joke.


The Laughing Buddha

The Laughing Buddha

One day a monk walks up to him and asks, “What is the meaning of Zen?”
Smiling as usual, he instantly swung the sack over his shoulder.
“How does one realize Zen?”  Budai then takes up his bag and continues on his way.

From Siddhartha
“…Siddhartha replies that for every true statement there is an opposite one that is also true; that language and the confines of time lead people to adhere to one fixed belief that does not account for the fullness of the truth. Because nature works in a self-sustaining cycle, every entity carries in it the potential for its opposite and so the world must always be considered complete. Siddhartha simply urges people to identify and love the world in its completeness…”

A gay boi finally showed his girl friend his dick pic after over a decade of being friends.

“Wow!  Nice!  Nice dick!  Very nice!”


“If it was STI-free and attached to a straight guy’s body, I would totally ride it!”

(blushing) Oh thank you!  That’s so sweet of you!

Real Stories from the World #2,875,929,9001 – Take the Time to Do Stupid Shit

“I don’t know what to do with my life.”

“How old are you?”


“Oh Jesus I barely knew what to do with anything at that point in my life.”

“Yeah, but you’re doing well now.”

“Yeah, but I graduated from University at your age.  Back then, this firm that I’m working for offered me a job with seniority, but I said ‘no.’  I traveled, I partied…plus I had a girlfriend back then and we were in la la land.  I did it for so long – almost a decade.  I started giving a shit about the actual work around 31.  Even then, I wasn’t too clear what kind of path to take.  I just knew I wanted to be in architecture.  I applied to numerous firms and this one that I rejected long ago called me back.  They still wanted me.  But because I said ‘no,’ they put me in the very bottom and I had to work my way up.

You have to take the time to do stupid shit.”


Life is too short to learn from other people’s mistakes.  Fuck up your own way.  Learn your own way.
Make your own mistakes.

There is no formula to life.  Quit mapping it out.
