I got my smile from the sunshine,
I got my tears from the rain.
I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
And a peacock taught me to be vain.
A little owl in a tree so high,
He taught me how to wink my eye.
I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
But the guy that lived two caves from me,
He taught me how to love.
I've come to the conclusion that I'm such a terrible driver that for every occupant in my vehicle, there's a 400% increase in the likelihood of a catastrophe. Being that my car is spaciousness enough to comfortably sit four, if all seats were occupied at the same time and percentages were calculated additively instead of multiplicative, that's a 1600% chance that either myself and the other passengers, or some poor pedestrian, will collide, face first, with a three ton vehicle moving with the force of a herding group of fire breathing raging behemoths in route to rape and pillage a defenseless nearby village. I often think while driving that if I was in relatively close proximity of any sort of oil or natural gas refineries, my driving blunders could very well lead to the next worldwide apocalypse.
This morning I looked at my microwave clock blinking at an arbitrary number. And, I thought to myself, you don't want to be one of those people who always has their microwave clock blinking at the wrong time, do you? I considered it. Then I thought, you don't want to be one of those people who gets screwed when you set your microwave clock only to have the power go out and then get really pissed off about it, do you? So I left it alone.
I got home from work, and my power was out. Victory.
It's hard to see,but the outside temp is reading to be 114 deg. Really? It's almost comical.
I saw another forum where someone was complaining about the temperature.... And someone else posted, "ITS FUCKING 135 IN IRAQ, QUIT BITCHING."
Crazy to think about.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
