Here's a graffito I'd like to see all over: Disobey Wisely

(Yes, graffiti is the plural of graffito.)

What does it mean to disobey wisely? And why do it?

I'll work on this today, but knowing me, I'll lose interest in the project before I get very far. One thing I'll say right now is that by practising wise disobedience, you're doing two things: practising wisdom and practising courage. Both of which are in short supply.

My favourite of all time was painted on a 36" water main suspended over a 200m wide estuary.

"Unemployment is not working"

It stayed there for about 25 years, until the Council came along and repainted the pipe.

"Disobey wisely"? Hmmm. I understand the sentiment, but I think that it is just a bit too polite. It will do for the moment Al.

"Unemployment is not working"

Reminds me of an old bumper sticker:

"Farmers are out standing in their field"

Try searching for old whig on bing. You're way down the list, and when I clicked, it took me to posts from 2004.

The expression "Just Google it!" surely must have put Microsoft into a rage of envy. By changing the name of Live Search to bing, Microsoft has succeeded in one thing: making bing a verb. Therefore my graffito of the day would be: "Go bing yourself".

Took me a long time to steer that one to the topic at hand, didn't it?

You know you're spending too much time on facebook when you want to *like* someone's blog item to give it a thumbs up. ;-)
