Happy Holidays from The XOG!

Here's wishing you a terrific holiday season.

That's where the fun is

"Blinded by the light...

...Just trying to make it to the night."

Manfred Mann


No thinking required this month. Instead, just enjoy the holiday season! As always, put on your headphones and turn up the volume!

Beating a dead horse

Your XOG Editor has spent the past ten years beating a dead RWOL horse and quite frankly, my arm is tired and the horse is still dead. Therefore, starting in 2012, your XOG Editor will adopt a new philosophy and slogan, I just haven't decided what it will be yet...


Maybe I'll come up with something new and original, like, "what, me worry?"

What?

Well, since that saying is already taken, maybe I could combine the best of other great sayings. If I combined, "What, me worry?" with "Don't worry, be happy," it would result in the following:


"Don't worry, go boating!"


Hmmmm. I kind of like it. That might just become the XOG's new 2012 slogan. 

Don't worry, go boating!

Twisted Liquid Marine (TLM) in Lake Havasu will customize a mini speedboats for you at an unbelievably great price. We all know we can't buy happiness or love, but we can buy a boat. If we're out on the river (A) boating (B) in one of these things, we're not worrying (C)! AB≠C. Sounds like a great new philosophy to me.

IRL in Action


(DSM) Social anxiety?


or


(IRL) A successful Comfortably Numb party?


Let's just call it what it is in real language. 

Why?

In special education we don't know why the child isn't reading so we just [give up and] call it a learning disability.


But we know why Stewie has a football head.


TBI explains why a child can't read; LD doesn't.


Don't worry, why not go boating? 

I told you this would happen...

Rainbow Colored Mallard Ducks

Don Asbridge © 1972

You tell me the lines don't match?

It doesn't look right?

You just can't catch the meaning?

What's the use of it, what's the reason?

You tell me it's out of season for rainbow colored mallard ducks?

Well, I think your opinion sucks. 

Miss Diagnosis

On one hand there are those (special educators, clinicians, big pharma, and others) who [mis]diagnose and treat; they make a lot of money to do so. Then there are those (advocates, agencies, lobbyists, big pharma, and others) who make a lot of money when someone is [mis]diagnosed and treated. There is a lot of money to be made. Then there are those like me, who recommend people quit [mis]diagnosing humans with invented conditions. But where's the money in that? There's no money there. I think it's gonna' be a long, long time before [mis]diagnosing to make money stops.


Happy Holidays!

Miss D 

I think it's gonna' be a long, long time.

"All the science I don't understand.

It's just my job five days a week."


Elton John/Bernie Taupin, 1972 

Holiday Letters

Dear XOG Editor,

Beating a dead horse! When did that saying originate?

Signed, Curious


Dear Curious,

It was first used to describe a past edition of the KOG.

XOG Editor


---------------------------------------------------------------------


Dear XOG Editor,

Who won the $10 XOG Challenge last month?

Signed, Curious


Dear Curious,

Nobody. No one has been able to forward any peer-

reviewed research proving the existence of LD.

XOG Editor

Dear XOG Editor,

When will you publish BWAG?

Signed, Curious


Dear Curious,

It was first published in 2001 and will be republished

when I get to it.

XOG Editor 

Dear XOG Editor,


Are you saying I should just stop worrying and be

happy?

Signed, Curious


Dear Curious,

No. I'm saying you should go boating.

XOG Editor

Dear XOG Editor,

I'm only happy if I'm unhappy.

Signed, Curious


Dear Curious,

I recommend you go boating.

Closure

The XOG's 2011 Holiday Issue would not be complete without addressing and answering the most basic of all holiday questions:


"Do you want to start a ------- war?"

Green Day


No. The XOG Editor wants to go boating.


Make waves, not war. 

All we have is now...

Happy 4th of July!
