Brain crack

Meet my friend Brian Shaler. Brian... jumps. Well, he does lots of other cool shit as well. But he's best known (by me anyway) for his jumps.

Brian fell in to my trap the other day. What's the trap? Simple. I've talked before how I tend to assume that I'm the smartest person in any room I walk into. But occasionally, I discover someone else in the room who is more deserving of that mantle. And when that happens, I tag that person as a friend and do my best to not only get to know him/her, but also work like a dog to find out how that person and I (and perhaps others) can work together to make something hellaciously cool.

Why? So that I don't develop Brain Crack. I didn't know that's what I was avoiding until Brian told me about it over lunch a week or so ago. Nor did I know that it was a term coined by Ze Frank back in the summer of '06. But hey, I can't be everywhere at once and neither can you. So if you missed it:
