How to tie your shoes

[Daily D Fans, check out the new and improved Daily Damien at].

I was at a thing once.  An over-night thing somewhere with some people.  I don’t really remember what or where or why it was.  What I do remember is how I had my breakfast cereal.  I don’t remember what kind of cereal it was but for some reason I poured my milk in the bowl before the cereal — something I don’t think I’ve ever done before.  I was always a cereal-before-milk kind of guy.

Now somebody at this thing noticed what I had done and pointed it out to me, I really wasn’t paying attention.  He said that he had just read that a serial murderer (serial – ironic, I know) always poured his milk in before his cereal.  I haven’t done that again since then… and I haven’t killed anybody.

It’s funny how we come to do certain things a certain way, every time… without necessarily knowing why except that we’ve just always done it that way.

Check out the following TED talk on a subject I always considered myself an expert on.. until I watched it.  How to tie your shoes.  It might change your life.
