MAN HAS LOSING DOWN TO A SCIENCE
Flash) -- Winning may be an art,
but a man in Dallas has losing down to a science.
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"
He says all dumb mistakes fall into nine
"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
Romanian guy who tried to get rid of head lice by dipping his hair in
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
themselves the "Cock, Ball, Nipple and Touchhole Club" and wondered
why so many new members were disappointed.
