Quote from Nietzsche about Talent

One of my favorite quotes from him about talent and hard work:

“Do not talk about giftedness, inborn talents! One can name great men of all kinds who were very little gifted. They acquired greatness, became ‘geniuses’ (as we put it), through qualities the lack of which no one who knew what they were would boast of: they all pos­sessed that seriousness of the efficient workman which first learns to con­struct the parts properly before it ventures to fashion a great whole; they allowed themselves time for it, because they took more pleasure in making the little, secondary things well than in the effect of a dazzling whole”

 

Hard work pays off!

Lemonade Boys (Rough Draft, The Story Continues)

The King sat down with Dr. Jenkins.  “Thank you for meeting with me today Dr. Jenkins.”

“Oh no problem Johnny.” Dr Jenkins was relaxed today.  “What did you want to ask me about?”

“I have some questions about business.”

“Oh okay.  What kind of questions?”

“Well I want your advice on how to sell more of a product.  Just any kind of hypothetical simple product.”

Dr. Jenkins thought for a moment.  “Well, I think customer service can be very important.   Customers will come back if they are happy with the service.”

“Well Dr. Jenkins how do I make sure that the product itself is the best that it can be?”

Dr. Jenkins smirked, “Have you considered having the product be something that is addictive?”

The King’s eyes lit up, “Oh no I haven’t.”

Dr. Jenkins continued, “Well it is only an idea.  People know that cigarettes are bad for them but they still smoke them.  It is the nicotine in the cigarettes, it is addictive and people can’t help themselves.  They want it too badly.  So if I had a product and my main goal was to just sell as much as possible, then I would consider to make my product addictive.  If the customers have an addiction to it then they can’t help themselves and they need to buy it.”

The King had a smile on his face.  “Thank you very much Dr. Jenkins.”

Loser Guy Makes Horror Film (Documentary)

Just finished watching “AMERICAN MOVIE” and it was very good.  It is about a filmmaker named Mark and his goal is to finish his movie.

“I am a failure.” is the opening line of the movie and our main guy is Mark.  He has big dreams to make his films and he does not want to “be a nothing.”    I think he earns his money as a newspaper delivery guy.

The film is really entertaining and as it progresses you really are cheering for Mark to finish his movie and it is kind of amazing how he has so much support from the people in town.

The dialogue is funny and you really can’t make it up.   It really shows all of the difficulties involved in making a short low budget film.

It is called “American Movie” from 1999.  It is definitely worth a watch if you enjoy learning about films and you like underdogs!

(His horror movie itself is not super amazing but this documentary is really good)

Lemonade Boys (The Competition) The Story Continues (rough draft)

The King and his boys were relaxing and having a good time at their hideout (which was a basement).

One of his boys came close to the King.  “Bossman, we have a report from the field.”

“Yes, go ahead.”

“Well, there is some guy and he is doing what we are doing.”

The King raised his eyebrow, “Oh?”   “Go on, tell me exactly what you are talking about.”

“It is this guy.  He has a wooden stand like we do.  And he is selling Apple juice, not lemonade.  He has two pitchers.   I have watched him multiple times.   Sometimes little kids go and buy something from him and sometimes older kids will go and buy stuff from him.   And he acts different if he is dealing with an older kid.    I think he is doing the same thing we are doing Bossman.”

The King was curious, “Do you know if he has more than one stand?”

The boy went on, “Not that I have seen.  I have only seen that one stand.”

The King looked around at his boys, “Well, this is very interesting.   Lug, Fudge come here.”

Lug and Fudge moved to him.  “What is it, Boss?”

“I want you two to go and meet this guy at his Apple Juice stand.  I don’t want any kind of roughness.  Just let him know that he needs to stop what he is doing and shut down.  Let me know what he says.”

“Sounds good Boss, we are on it.”

“One more thing, take this little guy with you since he knows where the apple juice stand is.”   The King looked at the boy.  “Good job young man.”

“Thank you Bossman.”


 

(The Next Day)

Lug and Fudge and young boy Jonny Fritz drove over to the Apple Juice stand.  It was in the suburbs.  It was a simple stand advertising “Apple J” on the board above it.  There was a young, clean-shaven teen working at the stand.  They approached him.

The young man smiled, “Hey.  How can I help you guys?”

Fudge spoke, “We are not here to buy.”

“Well then How can I help you?”

Lug looked at him, “What is your name?”

“Just who is asking?”

“Do you know who we are and who we work for?” Fudge asked him.

“I’m afraid not.  Should I?”   He just smiled.

Fudge squinted his eyes, “You know what you are doing out here.  Our Boss sent us.  We know about this operation of yours.  What is your name?”

“People call me Trey.”

Fudge got closer to him, “Well Trey, you need to stop what you are doing here.  You need to shut down this operation.”

He just smiled, “I’m sorry boys but I am not stopping.”

Fudge was making eye contact, “Our Boss sent us here to tell you to stop.  You got it?   Are you sure that is your response?”

Trey looked at them, “I am sure.  I have a good business going here and I’m not stopping. If you guys aren’t going to buy anything then I’ll have to ask you to be on your way.”

“Up to you.” Fudge said.    Lug and Fudge and young boy Jonny Fritz went back to their car and drove off.

Lug opened up his flip phone and dialed.

“Hello?”

“Hey King.  It’s Lug.”

The King’s voice came through, “What is the response?”

“No change sir.  He is going to stay open.” Lug spoke.

“Very well, I will have to take next steps.”   The King hung up.

Lug flipped his phone closed.    Fudge looked at him, “What did Bossman say?”

“He said we need to move to next steps.  I wonder what that means.”

The boys drove back to the hideout.   They had a meeting with the King and they planned their next move to deal with Trey.

Pokemon Challenge update (RED AND BLUE)

The Pokemon challenge is continuing on.

My Magikarp is still a Magikarp, but only 5 levels away from becoming Gyrados.

Soon I need to get rid of my Wartortle and begin the challenge in Ernest.

I have not defeated LT Surge yet.   But I do have BEDROLL and Pidgeotto and I have the Magikarp.

I JUST acquired CHANSEY!!!   I used the Chansey glitch in order to get a level 7 Chansey.  My game plan is to teach Chansey TOXIC deep in the game and I might also teach Chansey Seismic Toss.

I know for sure I need to use chansey   GYRADOS   PIDGEOT   Poliwrath and BEE DRILL.  the Sixth pokemon is up in the air, but it can’t be too powerful.  I’m leaning towards using a HAUNTER maybe.  but I am open to suggestions!!!

The main caveat is that none of my pokemon can know THUNDERBOLT or EARTHQUAKE or ICE BEAM as those moves are too strong.

Lemonade (Rough Draft) The Story Continues

The King surveyed his troops.  It was a ragtag force.  Kids and young men, nobody older than 16.

“Thank you all for coming.  I’m gonna spell it out for you guys real simple.  We have our stands okay?  Our stands is where we do our business.  You guys got that?”    The king spoke and looked around at his boys.   The boys in front of him nodded nervously.

“Right, we do our business at the stands.  The stand is where we sell.”  The king spoke.  He looked at his boys and tried to make eye contact with each one of them.  He wanted to let them know the importance of his words.

“Each stand will have a little and a big.  One little guy and one big guy.  One and one.  The little guy handles the lemonade and the big guy handles the goods.  We are gonna be sure these stands are made of wood.   And each stand will also have a bat beneath it, a wooden bat.  That is there for our protection.”

The King continued on, ” We are gonna have burner phones alright?  Just flip phones.  Do not give your phone number to anyone except people in our operation.”

“These are our burner phones and how we are gonna communicate.  You can text okay?  But, if this stuff is sensitive then DO NOT send the info with a text.  You can call me okay? You boys got that?  Make a phone call!”

The King spoke some more, ” What we do here is simple.  We have sugar and we have sugar.  We hide in plain sight.   You boys got it?”

Boys.  We are here to make money.  Okay?  The goal is to get the money.

But you kids need to know there will be risk.  If you think the police or your parents are suspicious and want to get your phone, then BREAK IT!  you got that?  Break the phone, we can’t have authorities get it.

Don’t be afraid to destroy the phone.  These phones are cheap.

A Biscuit Tale (Work of Fiction) “The Fight”

I wake up.  I roll out of my bed. CREAK CREAK. I hear footsteps above me.  “Fat bitch.” It’s my mammy stomping around up there.   I take a look to my side and I still got my ex-fiances shit just sitting there in a big bag.   I been meaning to get it back to her but I really just can’t stand the sight of that woman. I shiver  ” UGH!”   I can’t believe ever liked that crazy bitch. God damn.   I wasted too much damn money on her.


 

I meet up with one of my associates at a good local spot.  They got cheap beers on Tuesdays, only three fitty.  A local chick comes and waits on us.  I knew her from back in school I saw her around for sure.  My associate and I take a good look at her we she has kind of weird shaped ass and her face is really sharp.  A real strange face with intense eyes and strong eyebrows.  I look over at my associate, “I definitely hit it.”   My guy smiles and nods.    I say to him “She looks like the kind of girl who would give you a blumpkin!  You know what that means?  It’s one she blows you while you are taking a shit!”  I give it a good laugh.  This bitch is definitely a blumpkin kind of girl.


 

Me and my buddy are making my way back to my whip.  We had a few too many [drinks].   When my buddy C gets drinking he really runs his mouth.   We had seen a guy who was pretty big with some Marines tatoos.  You could tell he was jacked up on too much testosterone and was looking for a fight.   He followed us back to the car with some o’ his boys.    He said something to C  and C said something back.   We had some girl rolling with us and she got in the middle.  “Don’t fight!  Break it up.”  This bitch said.  Well, clearly the marine had no code because he just pulled back and Rocked this bitch. BOP.  And she was out COLD.  I get outta my car and this guy comes in for me.  I’m like BOP CHOK CHOK and I got this dude in a choke hold.   Meanwhile C is just getting his ass beat.   This dudes boys got C on the ground and he is just getting straight up Molly Whopped.
