  1. Well yes. Drinking, Smoking, Dating and things related. It isn’t my intention to argue weather any of those things are wrong, only that all of them have a high degree of danger related to their use. In recent examples, I’ve seen friends treat all three with a sort of familiarity that is born of a seeming disdain for the cautions given surrounding them. It struck me as foolish and dangerous.

  2. Hey Jenn, you’re taking my job. :)

    I think you’re right, Jason. A lot of people play a little too loosely with potentially dangerous things. I believe G.K. Chesterton said it best, “We can thank God for beer and burgundy by not drinking too much of them.”

  3. i am in favor of anything that pushes the wall of creativity… if it takes excess to exeed what is possible then charge!!!!!!!!!11

  4. I doubt excess will help you creatively. The greater chance is that your excesses will stifle the creativity you have. It was Edison who said that “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”. Excess will only limit you.

  5. Jon, I completely agree with you. It seems to be that a lot of people are proud that they play with potentially dangerous things. If you choose to avoid some things all together then they look at you as silly. Why is making that choice odd? If you choose to do something and you are being careful to not take it to excess…then yay for you. Maybe I just don’t want to have to deal with it at all.
