DALLAS MAN HAS LOSING DOWN TO A SCIENCE

DALLAS (Wireless Flash) -- Winning may be an art, but a man in Dallas has losing down to a science.

For the last ten years, Pat Reeder has been researching exactly what makes someone a loser for a new book, "Nine Hallmarks Of Highly Incompetent Losers" (Comedy-Wire.com publishing).

He says all dumb mistakes fall into nine categories, including "never planning ahead," "losing sight of the goal," or "claiming talents and abilities you don't really have."

Other mistakes are caused by "not sweating over details" and Reeder says the perfect example of that is the Romanian guy who tried to get rid of head lice by dipping his hair in gasoline and then drying it over a wood stove.

Reeder also says "not communicating clearly" causes major stupidity, such as when the members of an antique gun club chose to call themselves the "Cock, Ball, Nipple and Touchhole Club" and wondered why so many new members were disappointed.
