What’s It All About?

The “welcome” post covers most of what you may wish to know. This fills in the rest.

This blog tells my journey from being an intolerable social outsider to integration with society and happiness in life.
The reason? Because if you’re reading this, it’s for you; we’re on the same road. And
I invite you to join me and share your own tales along this road. See, if we compare maps we’ll both get there better and faster, right?
I’m showing you mine, show me yours and leave comments to the posts. Or mail me at ballsified@versanet.de .

Since my present and potential future bosses would love to know me as intimately as my regular readers eventually will, I can’t post a real picture (sorry) but this is what Simpsonize Me made of my headshot. It reflects my essence fairly well.

Whatever that means.

Yeah, not quite George Clooney, but I’ve found that people trust that “Swiss banker” look.

My bio:

I was raised in and still live in Berlin, married, with children.
I studied psychology with a side of counseling, then worked as a coach-for-hire for state-run training projects.
Then I ran off to the Army since it was literally less gruelling than those projects. After a few years in the footsteps of
Dr. Bellows I joined the Job Agency as a case manager (it helps to be used to being yelled at by strangers). Now I get to tell people where I think they should be going. What better qualification to do the same here? At least you guys listen.

I also write for Cracked.com. The occasional outtake will be posted here in the “off-topic” category.

The name of this blog… was chosen largely because I found a well-hung peach at the grocery store and just had to snap a picture. Things kind of evolved from there.

What else…

Oh yeah, the legal shit.

Any pictures displayed are trademarked by their respective creators and/or owners. Pics watermarked “ballsified…” were shot by myself. If there´s someone else´s logo, credit duly goes to them – you can usually click straight through to their sites, so since I increase their traffic (and revenue), I hope they tolerate the occasional, erm, loan. If there´s no mark or useful link I found it somewhere on the web and couldn’t trace it back to its maker so I had to assume public domain ownership; will the true owner please step forward so credit can go where it’s due, or the pic be promptly removed if so desired?

Hallo trashcan wm
My inbox awaits.


Incidentally, I’m trying to replace every “loaned” picture with one I took myself or at least one from the public domain but man, that takes time. Bear with me here.

As well,

under German jurisdiction you are responsible not just for your own site´s content but also for the sites you link to. Unless you distance yourself loudly from anything and everything, which is what I hereby do. I´m not my brother blogger´s (blother’s? brogger’s?) keeper.
Nor is it my fault if a link offends certain testy people or turns out not to be SFW. There is no masking of links here so you can tell in advance where it leads. I won’t try to screw you.

About that,

you still shouldn’t take everything I say at face value. Stay critical. If some of my stuff doesn’t work out for you, sorry in advance. No warrancy on psychological stuff, ever.


If , at any point in this blog, I offend you… you possibly deserve, probably need and certainly will survive it.

So there. Enjoy.
