When challenging someone's perspective stop and ask yourself these questions...

1) What do I understand about the others perspective?
2) What do I understand about my own perspective?
3) Could I be wrong?
4) What do I want the other to understand about my perspective?
5) What do I want the other to understand about their own perspective?

If you find yourself skipping the first three, you're not really trying to have a discussion and may want to check your ego.

Is there some sort of darkness of tint to asshole ratio that I’m not aware of when it comes to car windows?

A new version of Mast is now available, and I’m super excited about GIF browsing! 🎉⚡️🤖

Someone on Twitter is arguing with a person I muted inside my mentions, and I still get to see that, because that's a totally reasonable design

Have to call in for jury duty 3 more days. FML if I get it. It's not that I'm not willing, it's just that I don't want to see people eyes roll every 20 minutes when I have to stop everything to take a pee break.

@Mrfunkedude life tip?

my god that is a game changer and better and deeper advice than anything I have seen on any self help site.

It should be a book. Just 200 pages of blank sheets ... with this randomly printed on one of those pages.

Life tip...

Turn your hamburger upside down to eat it. The top bun is heavier and can absurd the juices from the tomato and meat without falling apart.

I am always amazed at how people justify things to themselves. I know I do it too. We all do. I'm just amazed at the mental gymnastics some people have to go through to do it.

If you can't accept good natured intentions, even when mistakes are made, then the problem isn't with the other person. It's with you.

We like to point out the mistakes in others because it makes us feel superior without having to do any actual self improvement.

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and seen a different face than you know yourself to have? What causes this? It has happened to me several times in my life. I look in the mirror expecting to see myself and instead I see someone older, more ragged, etc. adjusting my self image to what I actually look like is actually quite difficult and takes time. It’s like the image I have of myself is different than the truth. I have to stare at myself until it sinks in.
