“Describe yourself in three words” “Lazy”

So, how many of you have already failed your New Year’s Resolutions? Yeah, that is why I never make any…

 

…and one more follower has signed up to my little group. Welcome! Glad to have you along!

 

Anyone know if there’s a way to permanently get rid of that popup on Instagram that prompts me to download the app EVERY SINGLE TIME I OPEN A PAGE? Yeah, I can click on the X to close it, but I would much rather never even see it. I don’t even think the app will work on a PC. And I don’t need it to view content on other peoples’ pages. And Instagram tech support is no help.

 

Now how much do you suppose this cheap joke cost, in time and manpower? I hope the owner of the phone got a large enough fine to make him reconsider carrying this thing around.

Here’s my opinion: If you leave a gun unattended, where a toddler can get ahold of it, and that gun is in a state where it can be fired, you should be automatically be banned from owning a gun for the rest of your life. I just hope it was the irresponsible gun owner who was shot in all these cases, but I seriously doubt it.

Now some “experts” are claiming that the Titanic sank due to a huge fire onboard, that burned for weeks prior to the ship hitting the iceberg. Not buying it. Why would they set sail with the ships fuel supply on fire? And why did none of the survivors mention smelling or seeing a fire? Especially when the ship’s hull, in the area of the fire, was torn open.

If you ever get to thinking you’re especially smart, just imagine how you would figure out how long it took for dinosaur eggs to hatch. Yeah, not so brilliant, now, eh?

This kid was definitely lacking in smarts.

The only thing worse than taking unnecessary risks is asking strangers to pay your bills when your stunt goes wrong. Listen , idiot, that pain is to give you something to remember next time you do think of doing something stupid.

Add to the growing list of things people shouldn’t be getting outraged about, but are: A McDonald’s beside the Vatican. It looks pretty low key, and shouldn’t upset anyone.

I had been reading so many stories about Venice slowly sinking, and at risk of becoming uninhabitable due to flooding, that it was surprising to learn that this is the second year in a row that the city experienced almost no water in its famous canals.

I think people are getting carried away with “smart” devices. It’s just toast. How hard can it be to make it the way you like it? And, when it breaks down, and it will, it will cost a fortune to repair or replace, I think I paid about 40 dollars for my toaster.

Another thing that has gone too far: Living in your phone.

Darn it. I forgot about the Tragically Hip covers, by other bands, being aired on The George Strombolopolis Show, on Sunday night. The reviews I read were mostly positive, though.

 

Yeah, shit does happen. But, when you try to fake your way through a performance of one of your own songs, you deserve to be embarrassed on national television. Too much trouble to actually sing, I guess. But not too proud to be paid to pretend. I don’t think it is fair to an audience to lip sync a live performance, especially when the audience has paid to see the artist. Bottom line: don’t pose as something special if you can’t carry out the basic function of your craft. And her claim that she was sabotaged? Now why would they want to do that, and cast a bad light on their own show? That would negatively affect their ratings, which controls advertising dollars.

I had much the same response as comedian Pete Zedlacher.

New month, new year, new playlist, Hope you enjoy.

 

Another example of pretending to be something you’re not. It’s just food. Don’t act as if it’s anything special.

For the first time ever, the Hawaiian Humane Shelter had all of its animals adopted out just before the new year.

That’s one way to give your pet exercise. I’ll bet the human could use something similar.

This seems like a good idea, so long as good things happen to you.

If this is real, it certainly took a lot of nerve. Never done a lick of work in their lives, and don’t intend to. Despite the plea for “tuition”.

It isn’t everyone who can pull off wearing a camo dress to prom (just guessing). But she seems to like it. So does her date. And her Daddy.

Imagine a room awash in gasoline, and there are two implacable enemies in that room. One of them has nine thousand matches. The other has seven thousand matches. Each of them is concerned about who’s ahead, who’s stronger. Well that’s the kind of situation we are actually in. The amount of weapons that are available to the United States and the Soviet Union are so bloated, so grossly in excess of what’s needed to dissuade the other, that if it weren’t so tragic, it would be laughable.

— Carl Sagan
From Sagan’s analogy about the nuclear arms race and the need for disarmament, during a panel discussion in ABC News Viewpoint following the TV movie The Day After (20 Nov 1983).

 A guy bought his wife a beautiful diamond ring for Christmas. After hearing about this extravagant gift, a friend of his said, “I thought she wanted one of those sporty four-wheel-drive vehicles.” “She did,” he replied. “But where was I going to find a fake Jeep?”
