Dr. Becker is back....on USA!

Dr. Becker with his arrogance, annoyance and idiocies and everything else, as portrayed by Ted Danson is that little guy inside of all of us trying to yell out at all those silly things that happen around us. Of course, it would be impertinent and impolite for us to do it in the "real world".

The worst thing to do would be to be "polite" but rude and condescending in reality. These weasels are the people I hate the most. Their lives are so false and meaningless....

In comparison, if it were possible, I truly believe we would all like to be a bit like Dr. Becker.

Hide the kindness, bring out what you truly feel and don't act like you have something stuck up somewhere where it doesn't belong...

Plus, the show is so funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the internet good, bad, awkard or evil?

What a week it has been!!! The Craigslist activities section suddenly seemed to pay off quite well.

I actually joined a group called "The Internet is an awkward social tool".

Never to fret away from signing up for anything weird, I signed up a month ago and even forgot what it was all about and showed up at a cafe to find out it was a delightful new attempt at games night.

Then, I flummoxed around Colorado, desperately seeking and connecting to the interweb - aptly described a Luddite Senator as a set of interconnected tubes...

Later, I found myself in Denver, Colorado connecting to the net free again...

While the internet has offered a lot of delightful experiences, elsewhere, on the same subject, I have acted like Peter Griffin when he pisses off a whole (Southern) town about the civil war..

But hey, why care? The internet works, right? And it makes you happy. So why not defend it?

Just random thoughts...

Keeping it professional - for your own sake, do not question people's basic intelligence

It is not often that I do personal blogging anymore. Now most of it is about biotechnology or medical devices. But today I am peeved and that makes it ideal to write something personal.

I love arguing. I love the law. Even in school, people always thought I should be a lawyer.

So, I used to get into long drawn, pointless arguments as well as pointed arguments.

Over the years, I have found it easy to agree and move on, when I realized people are never going to change beyond a point.

Very recently, I was trying to present my viewpoints and two people I was exchanging emails with started questioning my basic intelligence.

Though I found it humorous, I also found out that they were leaving a long bread crumb trail of how they deal with issues online...for anyone who wants some good career advice...don't condescend!!!!!!!!!!

That is almost the most banal, unprofessional sentiment to express. Enemies cannot be made quicker...!
