Expeditional

Hope springs eternal. Even when you know all the exits are blocked, you're still trying to find one. Listening to the sound of last door locking doesn't stop you.

Looking around, you're still trying to find the way out. Open every door. Hold out for redemption. Keep going.

Statists and Other Cultists

Conformity for conformity's sake makes me itchy. Creepy on the cult level, I gotta get away whenever I hear or feel that kind of reaction. I don't mean avoiding agreeable situations; I mean that coerced, group-think mentality.

There's this wide-eyed, more-sclera-than-iris look glaring into your eye-holes when you let slip any disagreement with the status-quo. That's the dead give-away you're dealing with kooky... Especially when there's an accompanying smile that feels inappropriate and far too long-lasting. Gives me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it.

Drowning in Sound Waves

Everyone has music that takes them to another time and place. It may be something you hated at first, or maybe it wasn't even on your radar. Now, though, you're transported whenever you hear it.

Nothing else is quite like it. Even the smell of comfort foods cooking can't compete. It's overwhelming.

Indicator Lamps

Intuition knows so much, but refuses to give key details. Pulling all the entropic data from ambient inputs, you know something's there in the broadband. All that's provided as output, however, is the equivalent of a mental dummy light.

There may be vague indications of alignment chart geography, but usually the only certain thing is that there is 'something'. Most of the time, there's no telling whether it's a trouble light or something positive. All you know is that it's there.

Netflix and Billions

Watching a little Netflix this weekend, and seeing all of the new, high quality, high cost content, really piques the fiscal curiosity. Quick mental math indicates that the company must be making at least half a billion a year. This prompts further investigation.

A quick search reveals the truth:

It's good to be Netflix. Over a billion in Net income seems like an insane number. They've done it for the last two years.

Voracity

If you deny yourself something for long enough, it might seem logical to believe you'd no longer think about it. Sometimes, that works. Not every time, though. If not, eventually it just makes you ravenous.

Finding a Gem

Every once in a while, some great old movie will show up on a streaming service. The movie will be filled with famous actors, be well-made and yet, for some reason, be totally obscure. There's no obvious reason for it to be unknown.

Scrolling and searching all day would've never uncovered it. Just when giving up seems the best option, there it is. Too bad there's rarely time to watch by the time it's found.
