Three kisses of death to any idea

The top three kisses of death to any idea that you might have in magical and spiritual circles:

3. That sounds like change for change's sake.

2. Do you have a document from a dead white guy to prove that you are right?

1. My spirit guides/mentor/Third Order contact says that you are wrong.

If you hear any of the above, don't bother to try to justify your idea; just pick up your ball and go home---the speaker has already made up their mind; it does not matter if you are right or wrong; they are not going to actually listen to you.

I wish this was like facebook where I could check mark "like." Because that's all I have to say, except...so true. Thanks.

I second Kate's notion.

Yes indeed! How many times have we both encountered this?

You forgot one... my friend Pat says that in the Knights of Columbus, there's always one guy in the corner who asks, "Is he a God-damned Mason?" any time someone is proposed for membership.

Which is, apparently, a deathblow to any candidacy.
