The other day a reader of this daily e-letter wrote to tell
me I should be ashamed of myself for my insensitive nature.
What was she barking about.
Well, that headline I wrote a few days back, ‘They Must Be Smoking
Crack,’ really struck a chord with her. Turns out a close family member,
i.e., a parent, was a crack addict.
Somehow or other I was supposed to be concerned about this
before hitting the send button. Somehow or other I was supposed
to refrain from using any sort of language whatsoever that might
offend this one person.
This cry baby attitude is a big part of what is wrong with ‘merica
today. We are a country littered with far too many cry babies, momma’s
boys and sissies.
Now you know why it is an absolute pleasure to deal with the Furey Faithful –
those wise men and women – as well as youngins, who are forward thinking,
always on the cutting edge, ready to DO instead of beg; those people who
get up each morning with a good attitude – and if by chance they don’t have
one when they arise, they exercise, breathe deeply, stretch, walk, or simply
focus on their goals … anything but sit around figuring out who should be
ashamed or who needs his face slapped.
Truth is, you and I would be wise to slap our own faces each and every day,
not only for a reality check, but to wake up, energize, expand our brain activity,
and so on.
I’ve got this self-flaggelation thing down pat. I learned it from my wife.
One morning I noted how she sat before her mirror, doing makeup and so on –
but before she applied whatever it is she puts on (yes I’m totally ignorant about
this and unashamedly so), I noticed that she slaps her face and massages it good.
I figured at first that this was a ‘woman’ thing and that men didn’t do anything of
the sort. At least not REAL men like me.
Well, imagine my surprise when Master Zhang taught me all these pressure point
massage techniques for my head and face. I tried them out as per his suggestion,
and I’ve never looked back.
Here’s why: Suppose for a moment that I have an I.Q. of 140 – which would be a
bit higher than el presidente as well as the guy who tried to oust him from office.
Well, even so, that 140 can get awfully run down and tired at times and feel like
a double-digit number like, er, 40.
But after I whack my face, tweak my ears, work all the pressure points for the eyes,
sinus, ears and so on …. and do them in order of importance as shown in the Chinese
Long-Life System … my brain wave activity increases dramatically and I start thinking
like a true genius instead of a pretend genius.
I don’t know if this face patting is a preventative for Alzheimers or not … but I’m thinking
it might be. Afterall, we tend to ignore our face and head when it comes to health care.
One thing is certain, however, and that is the increased brain waves percolating in my
Who knows, I keep this routine up I may take another I.Q. test someday. Problem is
they don’t put any wrestling holds on them-there tests. Dooooiiii. So I be doomed be.
Moral of today’s message: Be yourself. Forget about pleasing everyone all the time.
That’s a retarded way to live. And that sort of stress reduces the joy of living and will
probably shorten your life because the stress of making everyone happy will kill you.
Make yourself happy first. Only then do you have something else to give.
The Chinese Long-Life System reaches into your soul and gives you the sort of
deep down happiness, peace of mind and health that you want. Be sure to get the
program will the getting is good. Right now we have somewhere around 50 sets left
at the introductory amount, then the package will go up considerably.
So slap your face, wake yourself up and get thee bunns over to the Chinese Long-Life

P.S. Slapping your butt is a good health practice, too. I’ll cover that in a future email.
