Very Random Thoughts - December 2016

  • Do you ever grab something out of the fridge or cupboard that has already been opened then wonder why did I save this little bit? Not only isn't enough left for even a decent snack, you may have also looked while making a shopping list and thought, I already have some of that. No need to get more. Double whammy. 
  • I am so sick of reporters and interviewers going on and on and on and on... when they ask questions. Shut the hell up and let the person answer.
  • Why do food companies make it so hard to find the expiration or best by date on their products? I particularly like the ones that print the date on the clear bottle or jar with the same color ink as the product inside.
  • Isn't is amazing that leaders and politicians who were intimately involved with and take credit for things that go right and are successful, yet they have absolutely no knowledge of the screw ups, mistakes or anything illegal.
  • Isn't white chocolate an oxymoron?
  • Ironically, you can not use an & in an AT&T password.
  • In this "post-truth" era, I'm beginning to think it would be easier for PolitiFact, FactCheck, Snopes, etc. to just report the factual stories and we assume that everything else is false. 
  • How many "last chance" sale emails did you get during the holiday season? Now it's time for all the after Christmas clearance sales. 
  • Atheists and agnostics need something to celebrate during the holiday season. Maybe Festivus?
  • It is now really true. Any kid can grow up to be president. You don't even need to study in school.
  • The older I get, the more I hate the industrial strength packaging that everything is now contained in. You shouldn't need power tools to open a new purchase from Amazon. 
  • We now know what a "sore winner" looks like.
  • Is there a required course in journalism school that teaches how to ask stupid and inane questions?
  • Were the "good ole days" really?
  • You know you're getting old when you have to hand the jar to your kids to get the lid off.
  • Even in this era, it seems to be required for recording artists to put out a Christmas album. Most suck.
  • Now that we have so much fake news, I think we need fake weather and fake sports to make up a complete fake newscast. Oh wait, we have fake sports in the form of wrestling, which is apparently good training for cabinet level positions.
  • I bet the tenants of TrumpTower are just thrilled about all the security and traffic.
  • Never underestimate a TV reporter's ability to find an inarticulate toothless eyewitness to interview for their report. 
  • Is it auto-fill/correct or doesn't anyone know the difference between to and too?
