It Only Takes One Jerk To Ruin A Village

It only takes one jerk to destroy a party or a Torah class. One loudmouth who goes on and on and you’re held hostage to some jerk who just loves to himself speak but imparts nothing. I’ve stopped going to various Torah classes because there would always be one guy, and it is always a man, who feels compelled to interrupt the class to give over his empty teachings. Twenty people at a class can be well behaved and one jerk drones on and on and wrecks it for everybody. I’m sick of it! If you don’t see me at your Torah class anymore, that’s why!

From my live cam Monday night:

smilingarab:  you look surprisingly emo with the beard
smilingarab:  you’re one of the few people that a beard makes look younger
User guest5 entered the room.
smilingarab:  guest5, we are discussing Luke’s facial hair
User guest5 changed their name to OldCarny.
smilingarab:  I personally think he’s pretty close to getting the Howard Hughes look down
smilingarab:  he already wears kleenex boxes for shoes out of poverty
smilingarab:  Luke, if I were to convert to judaism would i have to wear a salt and pepper beard too?
smilingarab:  because i’m not sure trading the 7 wives for a beard is really such a great move
smilingarab:  I mean, I’ve seen jewish women — that can’t possibly be the reason to convert
YourMoralLeader:  yo
smilingarab:  LUKE!
smilingarab:  I finally baited you
YourMoralLeader:  good to hear from you
smilingarab:  how’s the SEO business?
YourMoralLeader:  you need to give me an email address
YourMoralLeader:  i wanted to email you
YourMoralLeader:  it’s OK
smilingarab:  uh oh
YourMoralLeader:  drips and drabs
smilingarab:  that usually means someone’s suing you
YourMoralLeader:  made $10 off adsense today
smilingarab:  there’s a universe of horrible startups getting serious cash right now
smilingarab:  throw some buzzwords like "Luke Ford’s Crowdsourcing Enterprise Solutions" together and you could be rolling in the dough

YourMoralLeader:  I’m glad you’ve stayed in touch
YourMoralLeader:  together we can make a better world
smilingarab:  we cannot!
smilingarab:  the best we can do is record a new version of Ebony and Ivory
OldCarny:  that is almost beyond hope
smilingarab:  nothing is beyond hope, if Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart can record a record, Luke and I can
YourMoralLeader:  air supply forever
