Lesson Number Two: Barney's razor  
I hope you Suited Up!!
If not, the lessons are over for you now! Over!
But if you've Suited Up!, I'm very proud of you! High five!
A little additional information to lesson number one for you:
Porcelain keeps the suit from wrinkling. True story.

Now, watch your step when you get up kids, 'cause I'm about to drop some serious knowledge.
Think of what is to come as a lesson on the history and the laws of awesomeness.

Lesson Number Two: Barney's razor

You would probably say of yourself that you have a really powerful brain, right?
Let me tell you something,
Your brain, it screws you up and gets in the way. And it's going to keep on doing that, unless you power down that bucket of neuroses.

The best way, and the one which is most fun for you and your friends, is doing it inebriation-style!
Do some shots, and finally stop to think, think, think and do, do, do instead!
Because you know what time it is? It's DO o' clock!

Don't think about signals, there's no such thing!
Don't think about shame, get yourself a good surgeon and get your shame gland replaced with a second awesome gland, just like mine. True story.
Don't think about consequences, 'cause there will be no tomorrow!

There will always be one confused little kid on the street who will tell you that Nostradamus predicted the ending of the world, a Brocopalypse for today, and after doing a few shots, you will believe him.
So live like there's no tomorrow, because there is no tomorrow. Don't think, just do!

Naturally, there is another way.

But first, let me tell you about a little thing I like to call 'mind over body':
When I get sad or sick, or catch feelings (and for the record, I used protection and everything!), I just stop and be awesome instead. True story, and your first lesson in the 'principle of the simplicity of awesomeness'.
Or simply the 'KISS principle' (here: 'Keep It Simple, Stupid'. Watch out for the “Stinson KISS principle” in one of our future lessons...).

But simplicity is subjective, and the universe does not always have the same ideas about simplicity as I do.
That's why the universe, in form of all women and your best friends,keeps slapping you in the face.

Yet the “Lemon Law”, the success of “Daddy's Home” and yours truely are proof that 'Barney's Razor' (the 'KISS principle''s most famous name, after Swarley the Legendary*) has it's legen... wait for it... here it comes... almost there... dary, LEGENDARY moments!

It originally states:
"When you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better."

Which basically solves the conflict between the naked man and the time traveler...

But 'Barney's razor' again, in my own awesome words:

Don't overthink, just do!
It's more fun that way.
True story.

Yours Awesome
Not-Barney-Stinson
(although I hear that guy's awesome)



*Swarley the Legendary (al. 24/7/365) is remembered as an awesome guy in a suit, but his popular fame as a great logician and thinker rests chiefly on the maxim attributed to him and known as 'Barney's razor': Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem. ("Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily." (exept we're talking boobs, though that wouldn't be unnecessarily, but for the greater good... what up!)
The term 'razor' refers to the act of shaving away anything unnecessary to get to the simplest explanation: beards don't go with suits!

Aw that was great! I agree, not as funny as Suit up!, but still really funny.

I can't wait for the next one :)

Thanks! =) And yeah... the original idea in my head sounded a lot better than what actually made it into the text... but I'm glad you like it anyway. =)
