Typing out today's date – 2/22/22 – I realized something peculiar.
By now, most of you are likely aware that I finished third in the national math test (Southern Alberta region) in 1981. So, it should come as no surprise that I was able to crack the code of what is obviously a complex numeric pattern in the date.
If you multiply the first digit by 437.6, then subtract 19, then multiply by 0, then add...
I took on another pro-bono ghostwriting assignment today. I am doing it for millions of people who are looking for the right words for a very awkward situation. You can use these words on social media and in correspondence with friends and family members.
You do not have to pay me anything for this service. Not even royalties from the increased success that you are sure to enjoy if you put my text to use....
Setting sail on a vessel of truth in a sea of misinformation nearly one year ago, I knew that I would encounter enemy fire.
Sure enough, I have faced a consistent barrage of insults. I don't think "Rob" is even in the top 10 names I am called these days.
I would estimate that since February of last year, I have been personally insulted at least 1,000 times, including numerous times before 9 a.m. today.
You love sensationalism. Hey, I get it; "450,000 NEW CASES! WE ARE ALL DOOMED!" gets the blood pumping far better than our cerebral approach of "Here is the latest scientifically valid data on vaccine effectiveness and severe outcomes from COVID".
You do not care about what is actually going on in the world around you. OK, that is fair. No judgment here ... but you may want to speak with a professional therapist...
I get it. Life is hectic.
It is difficult to find the time to even think of new year's resolutions, let alone write them down, and act on them.
Now, it just so happens that I am a professional writer with a generous heart. So, as a late Christmas gift, I am offering some ghost-writing to every one of my 30,000 first connections on LinkedIn AT NO CHARGE!
Yes, I am offering elocution as a solution in...
While government Grinches steal more and more of Christmas 2021, there are so far no edicts that restrict the topics to be discussed at the tiny gatherings in Who(else is fed up?)ville.
Smaller gatherings, in fact, may set the stage for deeper, more meaningful discussion of contemporary matters ... which will either spell disaster, or opportunities for intellectual growth.
As you feast, feast, feast on your pudding and rare roast beast, we at BIG Media shall...
Over the last 10 months, my team of scientists and I have been working diligently to come up with a product to get rid of those pesky trolls that have been littering our social media feeds.
Well, I am proud to announce, we have finally devised a concoction that will exterminate those annoying pests.
In Stage 1 and Stage 2 clinical trials, our solution has been 100% effective in making trolls disappear.
Simply spray the trolls with...
I have embraced over the last few years what I consider to be the ideal headquarters of the small business operator: the coffee-shop office . . . or, as I call it in order to save three syllables and therefore countless milliseconds per year, the coffice.
I use the coffice for almost all of my meetings with customers, prospects and colleagues. I do my administrative work and digital communication on my Mac laptop at the...
Wow – I had the best Thanksgiving weekend!
An amazing turkey dinner with my family, followed by a spectacular light show performed by Mother Nature in the form of aurora borealis.
In a different kind of atmospheric bombardment, my weekend also included a lot of venturing into echo chambers and detonating truth bombs. So much fun!
Way back in the year 2020, you needed to have the skin of a rhinoceros to dare introduce a concept contrary...
Some of you might think that I am heavily biased toward my own platform, but I actually encourage you to support every single media outlet that meets these criteria:
does not accept advertising
does not accept funding from special-interest groups
does not have any political affiliation
does not engage in sensationalism or click-bait journalism
does not quote "experts" to validate ridiculous claims and theories
cites data sources with web links so readers can quickly...
