On the Benefits of Procrastination

Never be the first guy to a new technology. It is far more beneficial to let other consumers be the guinea pigs. Let them have the beta version, the Betamax! Let the price steadily decline while the quality steadily improves. Wait until VHS has clearly won out, the tapes are on sale, and the players are $29 at Wal-Mart.

When they try to scam you into buying Blu-Ray, don't. Admit that you really cannot tell the fucking difference and the billionth pixel's-worth of quality improvement hasn't enhanced your experience enough to justify the additional expense of replacing your collection yet again.

When everyone is enraptured with Breaking Bad, paying their monthly cable bills dutifully, if only to watch the next episode, hold off. Stay out of the fray. Resist being sucked into the vortex of perennial anticipation. When the series is over and everything is on Netflix, pull a few all-nighters and watch the whole damned thing for $8/month without pausing between episodes for anything outside the occasional bathroom break.

In short, be a procrastinator. Bide your time. The early bird gets eaten by the early hawk. The latecomer picks up the seed that bird dropped.

On the flipside, when cancer strikes, the rules don't apply. Be a guinea pig! Be first in line. Pay for it with the money you saved on blu-rays and cable bills.

Hey you don't have to tell me not to procrastinate. I've been putting off coming back to this website for years...

I agree, and I'll do you one better: screw Netflix. Why pay when you can just YARRR stuff?

Sometimes...sometimes, ETS, you are my Socrates.. And this is one of those times...(As I work in T.V. And film, by the useless drival and get it while it's hot! You need to pay for the producer's and the main actors drug habits (coke and lately H-ron, for some reason) and his string of whores.. Why? Because without them they couldn't create, now could they?)

Hey, Phil, what's a good tin foil to use to build my next hat?

Eh, I'll probably just wait on that whole Netflix thing. It's probably just a fad anyway.

I think the point the author was trying to make here is that cancer equals no time to dilly dally. That, and don't ever buy anything...ever. Except a subscription to Netflix. Good value for money.

It's less of an ego thing and more of a frugality thing.

OK, but what about the new blood tests that detect the mutated DNA of cancer cells? Do I wait until the tests are cheap and I've got Stage 4 bone cancer, or do I go be first in line and pay through the nose to catch it while it's still treatable? I GOTSTA KNOW!

Yes. There are no conspiracies. Everything is random.

Ultimate Warrior dies and ETS shows up with unintelligible murmurings.

Coincidence?


Sorry, Mr. Burns, but I don't go in for these backdoor shenanigans.
Sure I'm flattered, maybe even a little curious, but the answer is no!
