You Are Wrong: This time you may be right

Posted on April 28, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you expect me to be here to say goodbye. After all, this is the last “You Are Wrong” you may ever read. I know, I know; it’s a travesty and a shame. I lobbied for the Free Press to include free tissues in every paper for […]

You Are Wrong: Isn’t laughing awesome? You’re welcome.

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you think I’m funny. Or you think I’m not funny. Either way, that’s why you’re wrong this time. Because someone, somewhere, disagrees with you no matter what you think. I’ve heard it both ways; a woman on the Free Press website said I was witty (and […]

You Are Wrong: Don’t believe everything you read, except this

Posted on April 14, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you believe what you read. Because you believe that because an “expert” said it or wrote it down, it must be true. This is a fatal flaw in mankind, to be sure: we tend to take things at face-value. We watch the news or we log […]

You Are Wrong: The cuts you should have made

Posted on April 07, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you didn’t think that I would be delving into the #USMFuture issue here in You Are Wrong. And why would you? I write about silly things, whimsical things, not emotionally-charged hashtag things. Thaddeus isn’t a writer of seriousness, you thought. He’s a wanna-be Dave Barry, you […]

You are wrong: History’s not history, yet

Posted on March 10, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you’re not studying history. You’re here at USM studying business, or physical therapy, or nutrition, or underwater basket-weaving — but you’re not studying history. And why not? It’s common knowledge that history majors and professors are the most clever, interesting and beautiful people in academia. Seriously, […]

You are wrong: Trust your gut and eat what you want

Posted on March 03, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you eat food. Food wants to be eaten, will make itself smell good and look tasty in order to be eaten, and — by eating it — you’re falling right into its trap. Don’t play food’s game. Think for yourself, you sheep. (Mmm, lamb chops.) I’m […]

You are wrong: That’s March better than February

Posted on February 24, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Uncategorized

I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you think that March is good for anything at all. After a long winter’s passing, full of holidays and holy days, and then the busy beginning of classes and the headfirst slide into the first break of the semester, March is about as dull as a […]

You are Wrong: what I learned from the Superbowl

Posted on February 10, 2014 by Thaddeus Moriarty in Perspectives

By: Thaddeus Moriarty I’m Thaddeus Moriarty, and you are wrong. Why? Because you thought that this year’s Super Bowl was as un-competitive as pile of soggy newspaper and that it was worth absolutely nothing to society at large. Well, I’m here to tell you that this Super Bowl was worth a lot. Yes, I agree; […]
