I would have taken the pledge to not text and drive but my presbyopia prevents me from intelligibly texting and driving anyway.
I think I would have died from watching television if I had not been working nights these past 11 years.
How come we just gave the Federal Reserve permission to print money to the tune of $40 billion per month indefinitely without uttering a single dissenting word?
Guess it’s too much to expect the remnants of Occupy Sanity (or whatever the name is that I don’t want to Google) to take up this new protest. But the nice weather certainly supports a march on Washington now if any of us are so inclined to protest the debasing of the U.S. dollar and the creation of a new housing bubble as we sell out our younger generation yet again.
Speaking of weather…I don’t know about global warming, but I took out my A/C units today as temperatures soared to the upper 80s (everyone together now…”Fool!”). Tomorrow is not supposed to even get to 70 here in Denver, though. It’s 75 outside as I’m writing this with all my windows open, 79 on the thermostat in my condo–latest in September I’ve ever taken out the A/C.
We have our smart phones and video streaming. We don’t care about what the Fed does or anything else.
Our tablets, phones and football will keep our minds off the problems in the world.
Forty-six million people are on food stamps. Actually there’s a new name for the program (another thing I don’t want to Google), but it’s still food stamps to me. Am I the only person who believes this is evidence that something is terribly wrong? We may be the greatest country in the world still, but we are surely in decline with statistics like these.
It’s too late to improve Shaquille O’Neal’s game at the line, but if team owners seriously do not force some NBA brick-throwing free throw shooters (you know who you are) to adopt the old Rick Barry, underhanded, granny-style method of making free throws, they are just reminding their team’s fan base they aren’t really serious about improving everything they can.
I remember when the Larry Browns (Washington Redskins) and Walter Paytons (Chicago Bears) of the world would run you over as the lead component of an elite NFL offense. I know fans wanted lots of scoring and we had to change the rules so passing offenses could seize the day, but I miss the “imposing of will” factor that powerful running games would bring to bear over four quarters of football.
The game is more popular than ever now so what do I know.
I know I love autumn more than any other time of year so when I’m not removing A/C units, I’m trying to be out and about on fall Sundays.
I’ll forsake hiking trails and mountains and start tuning in to the NFL in earnest around Thanksgiving (shh…that’s how good the weather is in Colorado until then).
Was a little less than half a tank full when I filled up the car yesterday. Picked up a few things at the store afterwards, and then went again today to another place for a few more things. Um…gas and grocery prices are noticeably rising, people.
I think Mondays would be much less unsavory if we all had them off.
- According to a recent study, 21% of Americans would give up sex to keep the Internet in their lives;
- 73% would give up alcohol to keep the Internet in their lives; and
- 43% would give up exercise to keep the Internet in their lives.
I think the study’s creators should have asked the pool of participants if they ever have coitus, drink and/or work out while on the Internet.
Let’s hear it for studies that study studies of percentages of people on the Internet who save time compared to percentages of folks who waste time.
