Last week I was in traffic and out of the corner of my eye I heard some long honking followed by a stream of invectives directed at some hapless soul. I observed that the initiator of all this trash talk was probably in his late sixties. The culprit appeared to be less than half his age. I thought to myself, "It's been a long time since that guy had his butt kicked." Which made me come up with this silly equation:
TT= BK (+T-M +or- V)
"Trash Talking is directly proportional to the amount of time and distance, less Memory, from one's last Butt-Kicking."
+Variable 1: TT is Big and Bad. This has it's own set of variables in that:
a. There is always someone bigger and badder
b. Someone is carrying an equalizer which leads to the 2nd variable.
-Variable 2: TT is packing heat. Again, another set of variables occurs:
a. TT invites trouble.
b. TT goes to prison.
