SEX! DIRTY FILTHY ANIMALISTIC SEX! — Now that I have your attention, I need a favor

Hey there, sorry for using a cheap trick to grab your attention. This is important to me, so I wanted to make sure it caught eyes. Right, I’ll get to the point . . .

Tomorrow is my birthday, and if you didn’t previously know that, then you need to reexamine some life choices to find out where you went wrong. I’m turning the big two-nine. This is my final year of being in my twenties, and I want to make it a good one. See, I have this absurd idealistic nature about me that insists upon making a difference in this world. Not just making a difference, but a positive and lasting impact.

I’ve been trying to think of a way to expand on Wheaton’s law — Don’t be a dick — since we can do so much more. Anyone can not be a dick, that’s easy. Well, for most people it’s easy. But can we go just a little further and do something positive? I spent more time than I’m willing to admit in trying to come up with a new axiom or dogma. Then it hit me:

Do Only Good, Be Awesome: DOGBA

Yeah, my new dogma is Dogba. Brilliant, I agree, thank you. Now where was I? Oh right, that favor.

Since it’s a tad on the difficult side to make a huge impact, how about making lots of small ones? I’d like for everyone reading this to do something awesome this weekend, whether it’s donating some blood, platelets, maybe a kidney or two, or even making a charitable contribution to your favorite non-profit organization. Something that won’t take much time, but when we all act together it makes a positive impact.

If you decide to take part, let me know. I’d like to write a followup post for all the awesomeness that ensues. Pictures are welcome as well.

And please, share this far and wide. The more people involved, the better.

Will you help me make Dogba happen?
