Don’t Be A Dick-ians

EPISTLE TO THE DON’T BE A DICK-IANS by THE DEACON RICHTER – OK, so you’ve got a shiny new re-take on the golden rule. Bravo, it’s catchy, and I can’t hate it. Here’s a few things you all should keep in mind though: Do it right, do it all the time. Not just around your buddies. That traffic rage? lose it. Trust me here, if you’re about being a laid back, cool guy with the “don’t be a dick” creed, then the lost strife won’t bug you much. It isn’t cosmic bargaining. Just like all the other ones. When your shit gets jacked and you’re howling to the heavens; remember, they owe you nothing. You have not gotten on the good side of probability with your ways. At most, you OUGHT to be cultivating the freinds and social support to help out when stuff does go bad. THAT is the closest thing to an immediate return on “karma” this side of the grave. That’s it, have fun, and I look forward to your near-inevitable slide to dogma. Marginalia: a frame with grinning skulls contains the text “no one makes it out of here alive” in a very cheery style
