Let me say: welcome. Thank you for taking the time to meet Ideas Man.
Contained within these stylings are innumerable gems of wisdom, gateways to laughter and tears everything you could possibly hope to learn (provided you only want to learn what I've got to teach).
I invite readers overwhelmed by this vast array of wisdom to peruse the tags in hopes of inspiration, or to choose at random, as one might the I Ching.
Alternatively, the reader might consider the following brief guide to the Best of Ideas Man, as voted by our panel (which consists of Ideas Man and his cat).
For the record, the cat (Boo Radley) voted against including any of these --- thank goodness we made it clear I'd decide any ties myself.
