Warning signs that you may have too much time / money on your hands

It’s true that we live in a modern world where if you are smart and ambitious you can find your way to prosperity.  And this is not just true in America, but in many nations around the world, in particular the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, etc.) where the middle class has been steadily growing over the past decade or more. Just take a look at this now, Youtube has taken over as a source of education and income, the future for the next generations are very different than those prior.

And although I am a narcissist I am not delusional:  much self reflection went into the crafting of this blog, inspired by the Facebook post from whence this image came (and also from a fellow Anthropologist).  🙂

So, how do you know when you have a bit too much time or money on your hands and ought to think about some ways to fill your time / spend your money a bit more constructively?

Lets start this list, shall we.  And please feel free to add:
1.  You buy clothes for / dress up your dog.  🙂

2.   You have a consistent top rank in one or more Zynga game app on Facebook

3.  You purchase fruit or vegetables in packages already chopped

4.  Your DVR list includes “The Real Housewives” (of anywhere…no discrimination here)

5.  Your VW Beetle is customized to look like it has eyelashes (I saw this car parked in my driveway yesterday.  It was not mine.)

6.  You donate to fake / ironic / joke Super PACs like “Cats For A Better Tomorrow Tomorrow”

7.  You watch CNN

8.  Your dog / cat / baby has it’s own social networking profile

9.  You have a Starbucks Gold Card

10.  You maintain a daily blog

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.

Often described as a blog, an online magazine, a journal. When examined further the description changes and it becomes a project, an objective, a mission. American Male is one simple thing. It is a collection of different thoughts and experiences so come share yours and be part of the narrative.
