Make a few bad resolutions this year

Some interesting advice from the December 31, 1908 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri):

If you find it so difficult to keep your New Year’s resolutions, perhaps it would be a good idea to make a few bad ones this time for a change. For instance, you might resolve to be cross to your wife (if you have one) every day during the year, and then give her gentle words and loving kisses instead. You can thus be consistent with your past record, and possibly be better when another year rolls around.
