When I told folks that I was blogging about moron tax, I got the response that I might as well devote my entire blog to my friend George. George is like a divining rod for untapped sources of moron tax. Consciously or not, he seeks out situations that have no clear benefit for him but have explosive potential for punishment.
One small example: One night George heard on NPR about a restaurant called Orochan which served flaming hot spicy noodles soups. He decided he wanted to eat a whole bowl just to prove that he could. To his credit, he did it. But really, what good did he do for himself?
