Because often, we win in places you will never see.
I had a great discussion with my girls this morning regarding language. My eldest is now trying to find a reason to use the word integument*.
We also talked about connotation and denotation, and I’m sure Jeff Goldstein would be proud, intentionalism. The word “ass” was said a lot to prove a point.
*something that covers or encloses; especially : an enveloping layer (as a skin, membrane, or cuticle) of an organism or one of its parts
Some people hunt animals.
Some people grow gardens in their back yard.
Some people like to knit their own sweaters.
Our society is so advanced that doing the things necessary for survival are now frickin’ hobbies.
Think about that. Allow the concept to marinade in your grey matter. Savor the irony about people bitching how awful hunters are.
Allow me to pull up one of my favorite quotes
"As human society gradually solves the problems of basic survival and reduces the amount of other miseries rooted in the reality of the human condition, the fringe elements of that society feel an increasingly strong compulsion to become obsessively angry about ever more trivial causes to recapture the sense that life is a painful struggle."
The headline screams School on lockdown after 2 men shot in Brandon to which I immediately freaked out. But then I read that this wasn’t a school shooting but that they had simply locked them down while they looked for someone.
But that headline? Really made it sound like a school shooting.
This is… creepy. Funny, but creepy.
I don’t turn on location services on any of my phone apps, but that doesn’t meant they’re not on. Because they’ll backdoor that shit in a heartbeat.
Kind of funny though if you think about it. I can’t openly carry and advertise that I’m armed visually, but anyone who read my Tweets could figure who I was, where I was (if I did the location thing) and then know I’m carrying a gun.
Concealed open carry!
My sudden desire to become a luthier isn’t being helped by seeing things like this. Jeebus the inlays and designs on those are mind-blowing.
$12,500 each too?
If only I had the skill and talent, I could do that.
This morning on the way to work, I saw a homeless guy downtown. He was on a bench with a large bundle of detritus and had a hat on the ground which I assume were for donations. I was in the car with my windows rolled up, but my eyes told me he smelled pretty bad.
Suddenly, he reached inside his tattered jacket, pulled out his cell phone, looked at something, and put the phone back.
In order to ‘win you over to their cause’, they’ve made a game where you play the Sandy Hook shooter and you get to kill kids.
The worst part is this doesn’t surprise me in the least. I’ve learned over the years there is no depth too low for these cretins. They are so filled with hate that nothing appears too far out there for them. They will use the deaths of anyone to further their cause.
Supporting gun control is a sickness.
