Very Random Thoughts - May 2016

  • I'm pretty sure all those tests on Facebook that tell your ideal profession, meaning of your name, IQ, etc. are 100% accurate. 
  • When you see that a product is the "Official Widget of (name a sports team or league)", do you rush right out and buy it? Me neither.
  • All these transgender restroom laws are an example of a solution in search of a problem. 
  • They are also another example of our elected officials concentrating on issues that are of little or no importance while the big stuff is neglected. Style over substance. Posturing over positions.
  • Detroit and Chicago teachers go on strike. The nuns who taught me never missed a day. No teacher planning days either. 
  • What would a Trump speech or statement be like without adjectives and adverbs? Very short and no substance.
  • Tammy Wynette had two #1 Country hits in 1968. They were D-I-V-O-R-C-E and Stand By Your Man. Does anyone else think that damn ironic? Or is it schizophrenic? 
  • I can't decide, do I dislike rap or heavy metal more? Neither is music in my opinion. 
  • I wonder how many people will actually move to Canada when (insert presidential candidate) is elected president?
  • Shouldn't the Tour de France trophy look like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or maybe a bicycle instead of a fruit bowl? 
  • One or two Margaritas are delicious and can be your friend. Much more than that and she will punish you. 
  • Cinco de Mayo doesn't mean you have to drink cinco tequila beverages.
  • Damn, I never stressed about who else was in the public restroom with me. Apparently I should have been terrified. 
  • My first real job as a teen was servicing, cleaning and repairing typewriters. Not much call for that anymore.
  • Should government office holders be allowed to run for another office without first resigning their current office? I don't think so. Put a little risk into the game. 
  • Ever notice when TV "stars" leave a hit show to pursue other opportunities they usually disappear. Anybody remember McLean Stevenson or Shelly Long?
  • Was watching TV one stormy night when the crawl said that there were severe winds south of Paris. Why do I care about the weather in France? That's when I realized that Paris, TEXAS is only about 120 miles NE of me.
  • Wouldn't it be great if all that weather and breaking news shit was filtered out of recorded programs? I hate worrying about severe weather that occurred on Tuesday when it is already Wednesday, calm and sunny.
  • In my case, I'm pretty sure sarcasm is an addiction. Any arguments, of course not.
  • We have some voraciously hungry birds this spring. Birdseed ain't cheap guys.
  • Seems that in this whole transgender bathroom dustup the only concern is that men will be in women's restrooms. What about women in men's restrooms? Very sexist.
  • Remember when there was always a newspaper or magazine around to swat that bug? Not so much anymore. I really hate to use my laptop, phone or tablet for that task.
  • Saw an impressionist on TV the other night. He didn't do impressions of anybody I knew. Don't know if he was any good. Another clue that I am old. 
  • If a person does a song that is run through Auto-Tune and several other filter effects, are they a singer or an audio technician? 
  • Remember when there were only three or four yogurt flavors and just a couple of brands? Now the yogurt case takes up half the dairy department.
  • Can you ever be sure you emptied all the pockets in your cargo shorts?
  • Does anybody actually go to their first rodeo?
  • How come whenever there is a government fuck up, there needs to be an investigation? Can't they just fix the damn problem? Maybe even fire somebody.
  • I wonder how much spit a major league field absorbs over a season?
  • Found out the other night during an extended power outage that a bicycle headlight makes a damn good reading light.
