Solid Lesson Learned: Drama is Bullshit

Since swearing off last year’s drama in one of my firsts posts of the year and sticking to it, I have been justly rewarded.

I’m very comfortable with a solid mission in front of me, using the capital I’ve accumulated over the years: reaching out to people to be a bit of a help to eat, think, and move around better. It’s that simple.

Done spending & squandering capital. Now I’m reinvesting.

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2021, contains 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from health, diet, and food to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    Congrats Richard. I’m looking forward to reading more of the uniquely interesting content you come up with. You’re really the only one in the paleo-sphere with the right background and experience to produce it.

    Congrats. What’s the distinction between red and yellow?

    • Richard Nikoley on January 23, 2013 at 10:04

      Yellow is the visits and red is the added page views that visitors stuck around to click on.

    Your efforts on the front lines will be missed.

      “Your efforts on the front lines will be missed.”

      Begging the question.

      “front lines?” Whotta laf.

    The battle against certain folks of the feminine persuasion. A male advocate was and is needed.

    • Richard Nikoley on January 23, 2013 at 13:26

      You call those “front lines?”

      I call then a distraction I’m over with. Fun while it lasted, but I don’t have a terrier mindset.

      Advocate males by being a damn meaningful one. Or are you of the same victim-by-sex mindset as those you criticize?

      If Richard makes good on his mission, he is being a meaningful male. Drama is a tiresome sideshow.

    Those losers have no readership, anyway. They could not be more boring.

    When you fight with them, it gives them a reason to live.

    “Terrier” is a great metaphor. They are Rat Terriers. Or maybe Chihuahuas.

    Good job. The money/goodwill could you could (potentially) make from a constructive persona/profile/attitude will far outweigh the (potential) money you could make from a negative stance.
