It probably is not too hard to believe that this Neurotic Man leaks. The truth is that I am as porous as you can get. There is the sweating thing of course, but I also cannot keep a secret. That’s because I don’t understand secrets. I mean, what’s the point? You can’t tell person B what person A has told you, person C. Where’s the logic in that? What a bother! Look what secrets have gotten our government. Now it’s not a part of the government (I think) but the DNC has a major E-Mail leak and heads will roll, and there’s embarrassment and all kinds of attempts at cover-up.
Just think what Hillary Clinton would be as a candidate without all the secrets. After all, it’s the attempts at cover-up which assuredly gets botched that has gotten Hillary in trouble.
This Neurotic Man is just like that. It’s not what I say but pretending I didn’t say it that gets people pissed off at me.
Of course a major source of leaks is the government. That’s one leaky boat. I decided to check the accuracy of my leaks supposition so I looked online and found a Time article. I guess there is a list of top ten cover-ups (and indirectly, leaks). Here it goes:
Shh … It’s Classified
- Churchill and UFOs
- CIA Mind-Control Experiments
- Area 51
- UFOs in the U.S.S.R.
- The Loch Ness Monster
- The CIA Schemes to Kill Castro — with a Seashell
- Julia Child’s Intelligence
- Grand Central Terminal’s Secret Rooms
- Listening In on Lennon
- Potemkin Villages http://content.time.com/time/specials/packages/completelist/0,29569,2008962,00.html
This list freaked me out. I didn’t have the foggiest about any of these except for the Loch Ness Monster which everyone knows is just some poor guppie on steroids. I never thought of myself as particularly ignorant – until today.
Perhaps there are some things that need to be covered-up and never to be leaked. I guess there is a certain artistry to such behavior but the whole idea give me a headache and I need to rest and hopefully have a nap. After all, I read there must be some virtue in a constipated story but I don’t know what that would be. From now on I am going to keep all my secret stuff in the closet and never let it out. It’s safer that way – unless it leaks and gets out of the closet.
