    GOTD: Resumes--I can't turn the everyday things that I do into something that sounds super special. My friend critiqued mine and was like "did you do this at your job? or this? etc." Well yeah, I did, but we called that DOING OUR JOB...not reloading resources to meet an ever-changing workload while attaining goals and ensuring customer satisfaction. Plus, I'm just crappy at narcissism, and that's really what a resume is, right?
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    It's about talking yourself up and selling yourself to a potential employer. It's a fine line - trying to make what you do/did sound important without overstating what you did. I hate it too, so YANA.

    Primal/paleo folks can be just as obtuse as ones eating and subscribing to the SAD and CW way of life. However wrong doctors may be about a lot of things, there is a reason for the tests they do.

    What is it that they say? The man who claims to have all the answers is selling something. True, for Mark Sisson, so the rest of us should really learn to keep our mouths shut and stop giving unwarranted advice, which is EXACTLY THE THING THAT BOTHERS US ABOUT "DIETERS".

    I'm serious, I'm an American, and I know what the hell I'm talking about.

    Obtuse is when you think medicare, medicaid, tax free health insurance, and laws that prevent you from buying health insurance across state is not socialistic and fascistic.

    Socialism is the only thing in the world in which people both protest and want more of at the same time.
