Goodnight

The weight of the world can wait until tomorrow. Just close your eyes and think about stuff that makes you happy. That's what I do.

How You Should Spend Your Time:

Weather changes mood. It also helps that going outside doesn't require an immediate shower when you return indoors. This weather makes you want to do stuff you don't normally do.

Hopefully, yesterday was the last time the grass will need to be cut until next spring, opening up a few more weekend hours for other things. That was the hope the last time it was cut, though. Another week or two will tell the tale.

Dumb & Dumber

Back in 2014 a study was published that showed human intelligence was in decline for the first time since IQs have been recorded. Earlier this year a study was published which attempted to blame the drop on poor nutrition and other environmental factors. We do know that socialization and groupthink are proven to reduce IQ.

Environmental factors may play a part, but it's probably more to do with the breeding out of independent thought and a preference for socialization. People already form opinions of others based largely on the opinions of friends and family. With the growth of instant communication, focus on popularity has grown and impact of intellect has waned.

Others have posited that intelligent women have fewer children now than 30 years ago, the last time IQs were recorded to increase. While this may be a fact, it is, at best, only half of the equation. Intelligent men aren't having kids, either. Intelligent people just aren't having kids.

What will be interesting to see is a study on WHY they aren't having kids. Is it by choice or an effect of social de-selection? Maybe it's just Darwinism disproving itself?

Blinded by the Light

If moths want to avoid being burned up by a hot bulb, they should avoid looking at it. But Noooooo, like Lot's wife, they can't help themselves. Before you can say 'pillar of salt', they're face to face with it.

I wonder how they feel when they make contact? It would be funny if they're all like, "It's SOOO WARM!!!" Maybe it IS a pleasurable way to go. Who can say?

Spirit Catcher Stress Reliever

You don't have to be a great guitar player to use it for stress relief. All the dumb stuff gunking up life sloughs off as you jang-a-lang away. Holler at the top of your lungs. It feels GOOD.

Uh Oh, It's Magic

I've never known anyone like the people on TV commercials. Are there really people like that? Is it just another manufactured fantasy, like 80s teen movies? Those people, the little circles of models happily chatting one another up and smiling like jackals, just ain't very realistic.

Maybe they want you to believe their product will magically insert you into that idealistic world. If so, you'll need more than you can buy for any amount of money. And some magic dust.

The Old Ones Laugh

Hardly a day passes without some pundit saying random nonsense that pops with the public. If it blows up, they say it over and over for days or weeks, or until the glow fades from the latrine fire. Let the fires burn. Let them all burn.

If you are observant, you can see how the fire illuminates the dung. Smoke screens and stench are all it really produces. Horrible, feces-laden smoke.

"Alternate Facts" reported... Disparate to the truth in every way. Jumbled up opinions and outright lies inferring dot connections that blow away into thin air like the smoke that carries them. Only the stink remains.

Knives that can cut through eons can cut through all of the subterfuge. Incarnations of evil come and go. Let them go. Let them all go.
