Journal Journal: Beware the poo-flinging monkeys!!

Fight the power.

A) Write a journal entry that is very profound and makes everyone think journals are a great thing that only adds quality.

B) Write a journal entry that shows how useless the journal system is, thereby making a mockery of the whole effort.

C) Write a journal entry that you can read next time this year and still feel like you can show your face in public.

D) Write a journal entry that doesn't suck.

Correct answer: C. A & B are too easy. Anyone can sound profound with a smattering of big words sprinkled upon nebulous ideas, and the local trolls would serve as a great template for generating noise. D is probably impossible.

So how long before the usual bullshit creeps in and people start doing stupid things like faking their deaths by writing about it as a journal?
