Very Random Thoughts - April 2015

  • How come when you step on something barefooted on your home carpeting you can never find it? Doesn't matter how quickly you stop and go back, even if you think you haven't moved your foot.
  • My leftovers never come out to even portions. I usually have too much for one more meal but not enough for two.
  • Along the same lines. If you live alone get used to eating the same thing two or three times within a few days. 
  • According to one news analyst, Hillary Clinton has a complicated relationship with the truth. Exactly like every other politician.
  • There is a quote, I think attributed to Churchill - 

    "If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35 You Have No Brain." I must be backwards because I was conservative politically in my youth and now can't imagine why. Unfortunately fiscal conservatism and liberal social ideals can now no longer be mixed in the same person or party. 

  • There is a big difference between believing in something and thinking something is true. 
  • There seems to be an epidemic of police shootings and killings in the last few months. It is no different than it was a year ago, a decade ago or even a century ago, it's just on the news right now. There are lots of bad cops out there, either because they are incompetent, racists and/or bigots, power trippers or maybe criminals themselves. There are also many more good cops.
  • Wouldn't it seem prudent for Florida to be working to mitigate global climate change. Much of the state is only a couple of feet above sea level. Colorado can be a bit more cavalier.
  • Often "Conventional Wisdom" is not very wise or even true.
  • How can almost every race, religion, ethnicity, political party or group feel that they are persecuted and discriminated against? Somebody has to be wrong.
  • Is there any good reason that Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith are still on ESPN? Or anywhere on TV or the media?
  • Ever noticed that people who say "but I'm not complaining" always precede that statement with a string of complaints?
  • Where the hell does Superman change these days? There are very few phone booths and the public phones that are still around are those boxes on a poll. Is there an app for that? How about Superwoman?
  • I think I've mentioned this before, but it seems to be a requirement that when a TV reporter is on the scene for a live update that they find the least articulate person at the scene to make a comment. 
  • Why is it such a problem to find lethal injection drugs for executions yet doctors in Oregon do legally assisted suicides. Perhaps some stupid bureaucratic or court ordered BS. Or is it just incompetence?
  • Are legally assisted suicide laws really any different than DNR (do not resuscitate) laws? 
  • Would it be good or bad if human kids became self sufficient very early in their life like some species do?
  • Is it possible to label someone as judgemental without being judgemental yourself? 
  • Was wondering what the average number of "fight of the century" there are in a century. 
  • In sports after a player is injured we often hear that their return to action is "day to day". Aren't we all pretty much in that same situation? 
  • Do kids today even know what marbles are? How about yo-yos?
