Very Random Thoughts - April 2014

  • Have you noticed how the "those we've lost in the past year" memorials at the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, etc. seem more poignant and meaningful as we get older?
  • What excuse do today's teenagers use to get out of the house on a school night? We used to say we were going to the library for research or to get a book. Google and the internet have rendered that excuse obsolete. On a few rare occasions we actually did go to the library.
  • Changing to or from Daylight Savings Time is way less traumatic now that the kids are out of school and I'm retired.
  • The only thing real about reality TV shows is that they are really fake and really scripted. Does anybody care?
  • Know anybody like this? Seldom right but never uncertain.
  • When did men's suits that are too small become the style? A better question is why.
  • Have you ever poured the contents of a "small" container into a "large" container only to find out that they are damn near the same size? Or vice versa.
  • The easily offended usually deserve to be easily offended. 
  • Many of us had very good times in the '60s. Now it's time to have fun in our 60's.
  • As political correctness continues to advance, will we be able to joke about anything or anybody in a few years from now?
  • I'm not a big fan of the death penalty, but is it true that there is a shortage of "lethal injection" drugs? People die of drug OD's every day. The states can't find a lethal drug but a strung out junkie can.
  • Any similarity between life and fairness is purely accidental.
  • People in hell, where do they tell people to go?
  • When you see a product in a store labelled "Homemade", do you ever wonder whose home it was made in?
  • When someone starts a statement with "I'm not a racist (or bigoted) but..." you can be pretty sure that they are.
  • Don't let perfect be the enemy of good. 
  • No matter how far in the future the deadline is or how often it is extended, there will always be a last minute rush.
