May 20

I think. I thank. I thunk.

A lot goes through my head on any given day. I mean…. a WHOLE lot. Some days… it wears me out.

Here are some of my daily thoughts, observations, and opinions.

My dog is a little Ewok. I think.  She doesn’t act like one… or sound like one.  But she looks like an Ewok.  Smells like one too.

Commercials have changed significantly in the past 40 years. When I was growing up… I can’t remember anyone saying… “Oh man. I LOVE that commercial.” We only had things like the Imperial Margarine crown-on-your-head, and Madge saying… “You are soaking in it.” Those were wild and crazy days.

Now every commercial is a Rock Concert, or “Coolness” defined. Catchy songs. Bright lights. People dancing on cars.  You know the one where the dogs bark the Star Wars Theme?  I LOVE that commercial…..

The Neanderthal’s brain was bigger than mine is.  Yours too.  And on a similar note…. Canadian researchers have found that Einstein’s brain was 15% wider than normal. Both of these facts… which exist at the same time…. disturb me on many levels.

When snakes are born with two heads, they fight each other for food. This reminds me of politics in the United States.

Just 150 years ago, Americans and Europeans believed that mummies had great healing powers. They ground up the mummies into powder and used it as medicine for all kinds of diseases.  Now you may think… “I can’t believe someone would ACTUALLY believe something like that.”  Trust me… in 150 years… people will look back and be astounded by some of OUR current beliefs… and laws.

Paul Revere rode on a horse that belonged to Deacon Larkin, of Massachusetts. But the truth behind this historical fact… it was actually his Dad’s horse. Ah. The first case in history of taking the family vehicle out for a joy ride…. Kind of like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  But a long time ago.

For Second Amendment folks: Revolvers cannot be silenced because of all the noisy gasses which escape the cylinder gap at the rear of the barrel. Hence… if you decide to shoot a Mime, you probably should NOT choose a revolver.

I think the reason Shakespeare was so great… was because he just made words up. All willy nilly. Shakespeare’s works contain first-ever recordings of 2,035 English words, including critical, frugal, excellent, barefaced, assassination, and countless. Now that is incredikeenable.

And speaking of such things…..  I have decided to write a book. More on this later. But for now… I am off to a great start. I’ve got all the page numbers done.

So.  Just a few thoughts on the day.
