The Rules

All the wrestling with Blogger's photo upload tool recently (translation: it's flaky as heck) reminded me to post the Ricardipus Rules of Life™:

First Rule:
Nothing is ever easy.

First Corollary to the First Rule:
Everything is always difficult.

Second Corollary to the First Rule:
Nobody is any damn good at their job.

First Corollary to the Second Corollary:
If you want something done right, do it yourself. [N.B. this is non-original, but follows logically.]

And finally, considering both the Second Corollary to the First Rule and the First Corollary to the Second Corollary jointly:
When you do it yourself, you'll screw it up.


So now you know. It's not your fault, it's just the way life is. According to me.

Second Corollary to the First Corollary to the Second Corollary:

No matter where you go, there you are. And your mistakes come with you.


vw - yimut - The sound one makes whilst trying to upload photos via Blogger.

Re: The first corollary: When Blogger goes wonky, use Photobucket :)

The whole bloody thing was busted yesterday afternoon, not just the photo upload... grrrr...

'kapoj' - the noise Batman makes when he hits a villain, on the classic TV series, when it's dubbed into Ukrainian.

Allegedly.

Did you do those rules yourself?

...and the award for "late commenter of the year" goes to TRT.

The answer to your question is:

Yes.
