If pigs could sing

December 17, 2011

In the metro thinking: “Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and it annoys the pig.” (Robert Heinlein).

Like pigs, a person’s development & learning is limited by his/her ‘hardware’. Not a chance you can teach a pig to sing, right? The only chance you got is changing (or simply widening) your definition of ‘singing’ or changing the way you measure…. I mean, my grandparents used to think The Beatles sounded like crying cats….

Sometimes preventing wastes of time or annoyances is simply a matter of changing the way you look (or listen ofcourse). But that would be cheating right?…. RIGHT?!

My favorite pig-singer…

Anyway, so how about teaching a singer to roll around in the mud. Why wouldn’t that work either? I’m not sure if it would be a waste of time, surely it’s within most singers’ capacity to do that… True, it might annoy the singer, but do we care?

Anyway, i’m at my stop. Gotta get to work, I have to complete a guidebook and a template today.
