More great life advice on Twitter

Social Media is not the place to go if you want good advice on how to live your life. Generally, at least.
There are exceptions: remember last week (or was it the week before?) when I shared this tweet?

“Just be nice to people” isn’t something you should need to be told to do. It should simply be something that you want to do. Still, that’s not always what happens, and so it was good to see this straightforward instruction put into words.

And here – suddenly, like a London bus – is another: same same but different.

Again, you’d think that this was fairly obvious.
Again, you’d think that people wouldn’t need to be told.
And again, you’d be wrong.

This falls neatly into the RILAP folder:

Religion is like a penis. It’s fine to have one. It’s fine to be proud of it. But please don’t whip it out in public and start waving it around. And please don’t try to stick down other people’s throats.

So yeah, eat what you want, but don’t insist that I must eat that way too.
And stop telling me that scientific evidence supports your choice when actually all you’ve done is read a cheap tweet by a cookbook author or his faithful imbongi.

As the lady above suggests: don’t be a dick.

I’m sorry I had to spell that out for you.
