Very Random Thoughts - June 2015

  • Most people who insist that the poor and disadvantaged pull themselves up by their bootstraps never had to do it themselves. Maybe their parents or grandparents did, but not them. 
  • I'm pretty sure that reading articles or watching TV news stories about all the shit that can kill you can kill you. 
  • Has their ever been a home project that turned out as easy as you expected?
  • I wish weather alerts and breaking news bulletins could be filtered out of stuff I DVR. That severe thunderstorm was last week. 
  • How come multiplications tables were taught 1 through 12? Why not through 13 or 15 or 20? Probably could have stopped at 10. 1x1=1, 12x12=144. 
  • Did you know that vehicular deaths and firearm deaths per year are almost identical at about 33K. Both are disturbing.
  • In 2013, 4,735 pedestrians and 743 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles.
  • Normal reaction is now almost always overreaction.
  • Politicians are very good at pointing out what is wrong. Few are even adequate at coming up with workable solutions.
  • How come PBS Newshour Weekend is only a half hour? 
  • Florists, caterers, event venues and wedding planners should have a very good year.
  • Why are so many Christians paranoid and think their religion will be eliminated every time something goes against their beliefs? Don't they have enough faith in their god and a religion that has been around for 2,000 years?
  • Commercials often say "real people, not actors". Aren't actors real people too?
  • Fox News should be renamed Fox Opinion.
