Credibility and investment advice

Trust me, this post by Scott Adams is NOT about what you think it is based on the title I just gave you.  🙂


I forget the details, but I think the first mouse that got the concentrated resveratrol lived 30% longer and started having an affair with Maria Shriver. One of the dogs with resveratrol got a bone and dug a hole so far into the earth he now lives with a family in Sumatra. And he’s so strong he can lick any balls he wants. No one dares stop him.

Get to the point…

I tend to write long and relatively complicated sentences.

I just violated Scott Adams’ first rule – that wasn’t an interesting opening sentence.

Check out the rest of Scott’s tips, and this could be the day you became a better writer.

Learn how brains organize ideas. Readers comprehend “the boy hit the ball” quicker than “the ball was hit by the boy.” Both sentences mean the same, but it’s easier to imagine the object (the boy) before the action (the hitting). All brains work that way. (Notice I didn’t say, “That is the way all brains work”?)
