The Rules

Day 30. 83 pages, 38,803 words.

Okay, I know I’ve been dumping on Jordan Peterson a bit since learning who he is, but this video is hilarious and quickly veers off the Peterson topic. Which is fine with me because the Hatstand isn’t the platform for him.

This was amusing. Not just because the book would be hilarious and I want the entire multiple-set volume, but because way back in the mists of time I wrote a set of Rules of Objectionability and Misconduct for Usenet, based on the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition from Star Trek.

Sadly, I haven’t got a copy of those rules ready to hand, but I really should throw them on here at some point. Funnily enough, the closest I could find to an actual link was this Usenet thread where a singularly strange poster by the handle “The Vampire Muffin Man” had posted an annotated version of the Rules. Here’s part 1 – 50, and here’s part 51 – 100. Think that works.
