A professor told Bill Clinton that "great men often require less rest than ordinary people, some sleeping no more than five hours a night."

"Clinton adopted that pattern."

Hmmm... and what if some professor had told him that great men do not attempt to become great by copying the personal habits that professors tell them are common among great men? (E.g., Great men require frequent blow jobs.)

Clinton adopted that pattern.

It didn't work.

Awesome said...

"Great men require frequent blow jobs."

But only the greatest few get them, alas.

"You better put some ice on that," is Clinton's legacy.

(E.g., Great men require frequent blow jobs.)

I think one of his professors told him this one.

Jim said...

During the impeachment, those afflicted with Clinton-envy relentlessly insisted: "It's not about the sex!"

But, of course, it always was. And still is. And always will be.

Other characteristics of great men:

Shortness.
Tallness.
Cigars.
Yurts.

k*thy said...

I think he came up with that idea himself.

ricpic said...

Yurts?

With Bill C., it's only about the sex when it gets a laugh.

Otherwise, it's about the perjury. You know. That thing that got him disbarred.

Margaret Thatcher famously used to get only 5 hours of sleep. Forget the supposed "great men"!

Correlation does not imply causation. Plenty of regular people (and losers too) don't sleep much either.

Meade said...

If BC had not been sleep deprived, he would've taken out ObL when he had the chance.

Instead, all he could think of was how he could get his personal needs met in the workplace by a subordinate intern.

Too little sleep often makes a great man tiny.

scoutt said...

Still with the Clenis obsession. Remind me how terrible the Clinton years were? Oh yeah, I remember - the endless faux scandals the republicans screeched for 8 years.

...and those terrible budget surpluses.

That red meat is a little stale ;)

Paul Snively said...

Interesting that no one has pointed out the trivial logical fallacy here: X implies Y does not mean that Y implies X.

American Liberal Elite: ...and those terrible budget surpluses.You mean this fictional Clinton budget surplus?

scoutt said...

You mean those fictional republicans made Clinton be fiscally responsible budget surpluses?
I can't keep all the blame straight.

garage mahal said...

Bush inherited 9/11. Not surpluses!

T Mack said...

Professor of what?

That myth was busted a few years ago, I forget where, but you may go without sleep for a week or two, but you end up making up for it on the weekends or long naps.

Edison bragged about getting two hour sleep at night. What he ommitted was the total of four plus hours of naps he took during the day.

phx said...

A professor told Clinton that great men require frequent blow jobs? Huh.

jdeeripper said...

I'm perpetually groggy no matter how much sleep I get.

I am not now nor will I ever be a great man.

I've come to terms with it.

Cedarford said...

The professor got his words scrambled, Ann. " Great men require frequent blow jobs."

He meant to say "All men require frequent, great blow jobs".

Especially in a lousy economy where men struggle with the high price of new toys, beer.

Unfortunately, academia has failed to adequately communicate this critical fact to women for decades. And further, have allowed a "angry feminist women" contingent to claim knee pads are not empowering. Or spread fears that frequent blow jobs or at least the offer of one to most the guys they ramdomly meet in a day would make a woman a slut.

Nonsense! Blow jobs don't count as sex! Women need to get their confidence back!

At least inveterate homosexuals like Palladian still drop to their knees to do some serious, frequent salami-smoking as a big part of "the lifestyle". But that does no good to 97% of men outside that lifestyle. Except maybe hetero black thugs that got a "taste" for doing it on the "down low" - from their time in the pen.

In return for this, ladies, men would be willing to get 6 hours or so hours of sleep for a while -and help with housecleaning, kid chauffering. Or being perfectly willing to endure listening to another hour of chatter from you...vs. pretending to listen if you go on too long..

rhhardin said...

``Never neglect an opportunity to pump ship,'' the advice of Wellington, may have been influenced Clinton.

john said...

I think have something to offer this conversation, but I'm not sure 'cause it's nap time.

Later

dbp said...

It isn't that great men require less rest than ordinary people.

It is just that it allows them to carouse and still have time for the hard work that makes them great.

Freeman Hunt said...

Actually it pretty much does imply causation.

No. In the months that people run air conditioners more, they also eat more ice cream. Running air conditioners and eating ice cream are correlated, but running the air conditioner does not cause a person to eat more ice cream. Correlation is not causation.

Freeman Hunt said...

I wonder if the same or similar such professor told him, or implied to him, the same thing about being liberal. What if a person's entire life were built around such vanities? Others think that great people are/do x, and so the person is/does x and becomes nothing but a reflection of societal expectations of the affectations of greatness.

Correlation does not imply causation. Causation implies correlation -- anything which has a cause must necessarily be correlated with that cause. But it is not the case that correlation implies causation.

It's like saying "grey clouds don't indicate rain".

They don't. Here in San Diego we regularly get gray clouds, but seldom get rain from them. But if it is raining, you can be sure there's at least one gray cloud in the sky. :)

Methadras said...

What a load of horseshit. Who comes up with this philosophical crap? It's like those morons that send those email chain letters with cute animals and babies telling you to say a prayer 10 times and forward the email to a thousand people and you will be rewarded or some stupid shit like that. I'd like to find those people who make them and beat the crap out of them.

It has been a nice few days in San Diego hasn't it?

It was not about the sex - It was all about the dirty laundry.

How not interesting.

What is wrong with frequent blowjobs?

All the "down low" straight guys I have blown have been white professional men, a cop, a Marine, etc. They quickly realize that, on the average, men give head more skillfully than women. There are certainly exceptions on both sides, but as a general rule it works.

The problem for the "down low" guys is that I expect repayment in kind. And straight guys, as you'd suspect, usually give terrible head. Especially given my big hog and forceful hands.

Dear God, am I turning into Titus?!

Revenant said...

I've suspected that would be the case. Certainly I've never known a woman who could give a decent hand job. Sometimes I just want to say "get away from that thing, you don't know what you're doing".

I mean, let's face it, Jenna Jameson has probably spent less time with her hands on a penis than the average 20-year-old guy has. :)

"In the months that people run air conditioners more, they also eat more ice cream. Running air conditioners and eating ice cream are correlated, but running the air conditioner does not cause a person to eat more ice cream."

This is not evidence that correlation does not imply causation. It simply shows that two things that are correlated are not necessarily causes of each other. There is still a causal connection, namely, a third factor that is causally relevant to them both.

If there is a correlation between lack of sleep and greatness -- which I doubt -- it would damn well be worth paying attention to.

Bill found that sleeping only 5 hours gives him 19 hours to chase pussy.

Freeman Hunt said...

Maybe. But the point is that it's silly for someone to think that sleeping less is going to turn him into a great man even if great men really do sleep less, which I doubt.

David said...

Required frequent blow jobs? Maybe.

Required risky blow jobs. For sure.

knox said...

So are you guys saying there's correlation or causation between a guy being straight and giving bad head. Or what. I'm confused.

And no blow jobs.

Xaritas said...

There are many naysayers who question the assumption here.

Being in an operational leadership position does make you less prone to sleepiness, although you eventually have to pay to the price. I think most military folk will attest to this. Experience varies by the person of course but I believe that responsibility and filling an alpha role does change brain chemistry. I'm pretty sure this is attested in science journals but I'm too tired to check right now (lately I do mostly logistics not operational stuff).

When everything weighs upon you, sleep does not come easily and is easily disturbed. Seems likely that great men sleep less because they can't, not because they can. If you know what I mean.

Of course, it doesn't follow that sleeping less makes you a great man.

Revenant said...

There can be. There might not be. For example, I wore a Hawaiian shirt last time I went to Vegas. I also won $100 playing blackjack. So wearing Hawaiian shirts in Vegas is, to me, strongly correlated with winning money. But neither thing caused the other. They don't even share a common cause. I wore a Hawaiian shirt because I like them, and I won $100 through blind chance.

Titusisfeelinggreatthankyouforasking said...

Palladian you are turning into Titus.

No Dear God needed, imbrace it and welcome. The doors are always open.

And yes men know how to give a better blow job than women. Believe it or not, when I was younger I had many women who blew me. They just nibbled on the head and were done. I was like bitch give it to me I will just jerk off.

Men on the other hand devour it like they are having Thanksgiving dinner. Women don't want to have that Thanksgiving dinner.

So message out to straighties...if you want your hog worshiped and appreciated find another man.

The only women that devour a dick are in pornos.

Xaritas said...

There can be. There might not be. For example, blah blah blahI admire your perseverance but surely you suspect by this point that you are dealing with invincible ignorance, no?

Marcia said...

"When everything weighs upon you, sleep does not come easily and is easily disturbed. Seems likely that great men sleep less because they can't, not because they can. If you know what I mean."

Agreed. Even where correlation is due to causation, the causation may run in the opposite direction of what people believe.

Titusisfeelinggreatthankyouforasking said...

And Palladian down low guys are usually hungry for a hog.

They don't go all down low just to get a good blow job.

They too, want to suck the cum right out of a hog.

That's why they are down low.

They can have pussy any night.

They want some cock. That's why right now they are walking the streets hungry for some hog.

Just keep your eyes open and your mouth shut bitch.

Titusisfeelinggreatthankyouforasking said...

I do feel bad for straight men though.

They rarely get a good blowjob.

That is very sad.

Thank you.

Peter V. Bella said...

"...and those terrible budget surpluses."

You meant to say phony budget surpluses. they were created through voodoo accounting. If the government was ever held to the same accounting practices as the rest of the world, every elected official would be in jail. That would not be a bad thing.

Palladian, please do not turn into Titus.

You are way too interesting (sorry Titus) not to mention funny and thoughtful.

Yeah!!

And what if a professor had told him there was a lake nearby...would he go swimming?

Or what if a professor told him to study more...would he study more?

Duh.
