As this is the "random thought" thread, I don't automatically assume that this is directed at me.
However, since it reminds me of our last interaction on the forum, I wanted to check and see if I have somehow done something to offend you. If so feel free to let me know.
i think i may have caused it since i commented on her possibly not being an alcoholic and she didn't believe me. in the next post i gave my reasoning and also asked a few questions and now i can't access the thread. so i assume that was to me.
I've come to the realization today that tradition technically is a negative thing; it does not help in the advancement of technology , knowledge, and better understanding of, as humanity, our existence. Keeping in tradition is limiting ourselves and humanity's ability to discover the unknown. Perhaps that is why scientists believe that thanks to the dark ages and various waves of different religions, we are 300 years behind what we could have been.

people who expect a change
who can't throw away their humanity
who stay idle in growth
who won't dirty their hands

i like it when people think they are deep so they write up a bunch of mumbo jumbo to talk themselves big but more often than not you know they don't understand what they wrote either because it was like chopping up the dictionary and then playing 52 pick up with the remnants of words and pieces of sounds and the constellations of consonants that fall around your feet like dead birds crashing to earth.
I find the word "redneck" to be funny. I generally think of a redneck as a person who tends to get sunburned on his/her neck. Which I suppose means that (s)he spends a lot of time outside and doesn't wear adequate sunscreen or covering on his/her neck.
