HeadGarbage's Mission Statement

This site exists for one sole reason. Some may say it's a waste of time and/or a poor attempt at stupid humor. That's fine. But way too many people are so miserable and I refuse to be one of them. These are things that I think about and I think are funny. These are things that make me laugh. I hope some of it makes you laugh too. Life is way too short to walk around being pissed off all the time. If you can’t laugh at some of the stupid and ridiculous stuff that exists in this world, what’s the point?! I hope the content of this site, which stems from the ridiculousness of the world we're in, can help in some small way to help take the edge off an otherwise stressful life. As a wise man once said,"We're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time!" I think that was Gandhi? Live, LAUGH, Love...And enjoy your daily dose of HeadGarbage. Come back often and tell your friends so that HG can grow big and strong!

Learning the Hard Way


So for those who aren't familiar, Dick's Sporting Goods is a retail sporting goods chain primarily located in the Northeast United States.  Dick's Sporting Goods.  When I was in college, the internet revolution wasn't necessarily yet in full swing.  So without the trusting guidance of web search engine sites like Google or Yahoo, and needing to order some new sneakers, I guessed at the website, going with the seemingly obvious http://www.dicks.com/.  (do not click on this link).  Let me tell you a little bit of information about assuming when it comes to websites.  Don't.  Turns out http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/ is the site I was looking for in order to purchase sneakers online.  Not dicks.com.  Please be advised as I was not.  Because if you're looking for some new sneakers, dicks.com will not serve you well.  On the other hand, if you're a dude who likes other dudes, dicks.com will do you just fine.
