Authority Figure

I was looking at another person's blog yesterday, and I was astounded by how professional it was. It was the real deal, the bee's fucking knees.

I wondered what it might be like to be such an authority figure on a subject.

I think I know a little bit about what it means to bullshit. So I did a search for the term bullshit in Google Trends.

The results were very interesting. Look! 👀

Here's some fucking charts and graphs and other such bullshit:

Searches for the term "bullshit" around the world.
Of course the USA comes first. We're number one!
But look who's coming in 2nd! Looks like there's more to Darwin than meets the eye.

Interest over time for the word "bullshit." Looks like what goes around comes back around - but look at that spike in December of 2014. Remember that?

Generally, fuck it. Fuck being the authority on anything, because I'm not. I'm a writer, and the only authority I feel that doesn't require an exuberant amount of hubris is the self. I write this blog not because I want to give you an academic knowledge, but an experience. I'm not one for charts and graphs, but I'm trying to tell you a story.

I'm a storyteller. I'm a writer. This is my craft.
