Five Pounds of Shit in a Four Pound Bag

Armando vasilates like Rzayo trying to decide which Goof Troop member to slap first. Under "Ronnie Brown" by Ringtone17, Armando says that Ronnie isn't better than Ricky or Patrick. In this article, he is saying he wants to "[clear up] a couple mistakes." I always wonder if someone is full of shit. Whether it’s in business or my personal life having a bullshit detector is critical. Some of us have a better bull secretion detector than others but we all have one. Throughout my life, I’ve met plenty of people and companies who are full of shit and plenty of people and companies who are as sincere and genuine as they come. The tricky part comes when the person or company insists they are one way, however, their actions depict them as another way. Rule number 1 for detecting bull secretion is when a person or a company says one thing insistently but they do another thing repeatedly. Automatically, you’re nostrils should begin to flare. Rule number 2 is to learn more about the person or company’s track record. Someone can say they are a certain way, but if nothing in their past reflects that then those nostrils should perk even more. Rule number 3 is to ask sources. Ask people that have dealt with the person or company before. If other people or customers have dealt with the person or company before, find out their experience. But you have to be careful with this. You’re going to need your bullshit detector for this exercise in it of itself. Rule number 4 is the hardest rule of all to follow. But it will always give you the right answer no matter what. It is 100% guaranteed. The rule is simple. Wait and see. Most people don’t want to do this but this exercise works every single time. Although life is extremely short, it’s also fairly long (if that makes any sense). Within due time, you’ll be able to tell if a person or a company is full of it. Usually a company that is full of it will go out of business or bankrupt and a person that is full of it will continue to act opposite of what they say. Having a reliable bullshit detector can be your most valuable asset. It has saved me tens of thousands of dollars and hours in business and hundreds of wasted hours with people who are full of nothing but hot air. Cypress Hill said it best, "When the shit goes down, you better be ready!" Maybe Armando is preparing to run politically, he certainly has the credentials.
