Dumb Stuff

Thinking is way over rated!  Our society is proving this on a daily basis.
A generation seems to come along every 20 years or so.  Apparently we are generationally advanced with five or six generations hanging around, from the Silent (Brokaw’s “The Greatest”), past the baby boomers, to Gen X, Millennials, and Boomlets. People who study these things apparently aren’t that great at coming up with good names.
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day.  Teach a man to fish and you support a whole industry of boating stuff.
Never underestimate the emotional appeal of a dumb idea, especially if it promises free stuff.
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Well technically if a person has a gun and uses it to inflict death, then maybe the gun did kill someone, but it was done against the guns better judgment.  But, to be really clear on this, taking guns away from people who don’t intend to kill other people will not make bad people stop using guns, it will just increase the chances for them to be successful.  No matter how much fanatical anti-gun people want to believe otherwise.
Cats hate having their pictures shared on the Internet.  They have set up a secret organization that uses the NSA as a cover and are currently documenting all who share their pictures and videos.  Their nefarious plans call for them to plant hairballs all over the guilty party’s floors.
How would history have been changed if Neil Armstrong had slipped getting off the Lunar Lander?
The new Air Force tanker, the KC-46, is named “Pegasus,” after the famous flying horse known for passing gas.  
Apparently Apple’s operating system worked better when it was named after NBA teams then National Parks… probably something caused by President Obama or the GOP, depending on your political slant.
I love it when someone points out liberals are unwilling to accept criticism of their beliefs and the immediate response is “That’s wrong and conservatives don’t know what they’re talking about.”

We’ve spent 20 years making the F-35 the most advanced air to ground fighter ever built.  The fact it is only 15 years behind the technology we are using daily on the battlefields today stands as a testament to government acquisition.  Keep that in mind when you advocate for the government to implement a single payer system.

Oh boy you have been hitting the flour and sugar pretty hard, huh?

Do keep thinking in 2015...thinking is, in fact, under rated and yours is appreciated.
Happy New Year.
