“Stay Dangerous”

I am guilty of making the mistake of seeing off soldiers who are going into a battle zone with a comment something like “stay safe.” I’ve since learned, from a great line in Battlestar Galactica, as well as elsewhere in real life, that that’s in bad form. You don’t tell a soldier to stay safe. His job is to be unsafe. His job is to be dangerous. You tell a soldier, “Good Hunting,” or something similar.

Alvie has a Doble Equis mock up that I hope goes viral. “Stay Dangerous, My Friends.”

Indeed. Life is dangerous. Be more dangerous than the tyrant or the freelance socialist (the common criminal). And win.

Nice job, Mr. Dobbs. And great answers, David and Mike.
