Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

never ever never

March25

After reading Nick Milne’s recent book reporting post Lady Audley’s Secret, and then Brian Visaggio’s thought provoking dissertation Daybreak, First Impressions where he compares the final episode of Battlestar Gallactica with various iterations of Star Trek, I felt like my own effort today might seem, well, potentially unproductive.

…Won’t be the first time.

So, forging ahead…

You have no doubt heard someone use the phrase:

If I never see that person again, it will be too soon.

However, perhaps they meant to say:

If I ever see that person again, it will be too soon.

Using the word never might imply that it might be too early to never see the person that might be the object of ire. That doesn’t work.

This is one of those phrases that might have you stop and pause to consider how you say the thing yourself – and, how you think you have heard it said by others.

It’s potentially maddening.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Simple Truths: Example #11

November25

In a moment of levity yesterday, my very good friend Stephen Wall, reminded me that there are (perhaps) two kinds of people:

“Weasels, and Weasel Slappers”. /1

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

1/ Stephen does not lay claim to coining this phrase.  He does however, deliver it with panache. It should also be noted that, in my professional opinion, Stephen is arguably one of the finest, and best qualified, sales professionals that I know.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
