Did you know there are lots of rules you’re dutifully following every single day…that don’t actually exist? They come from everywhere: parents, grandparents, politicians, first grade teachers, old, dead, white guys, and young, celebrity trendsetters. We follow them (often subconsciously) for reasons that range from irrelevant to superstitious to downright stupid. Jason Kotecki wrote "Penguins Can't Fly +39 Other Rules That Don't Exist" to shed light on some of the most useless rules that are stressing you out, sapping your energy, and giving you a serious case of Adultitis (http://adultitis.org). This slideshow, featuring some of Jason's whimsical art from the book, showcases some of the so-called rules new graduates would most benefit from breaking.

You can preorder Penguins Can't Fly, which comes out next week, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, or Books-a-Million.
