Think About This!

Most of these questions or statements are from me and will have an asterisk at the beginning. Some lines have been seen on bumper stickers. Some quotes are from real people (past and present). Their common link? I think they're all worth giving some thought to.

"When you're hit with a seemingly inescapable threat, it is best to go with the most positive option" -This was the gist of what a main character on the TV show, Fringe (one of my favorites), was saying... but not exactly. Still, this makes sense to me.

*Why do small time criminals become hardened and, at times, more dangerous, while they stay in prison and then when they leave the prison? This is a condition that should be further investigated. My feeling is... is that pain suffered in prison can be a breeding ground for anger. Then anger is channeled in many different ways after that, unfortunately. I think it may used against either the convict, himself, or the rest of society. Is there something to that? I wish more people would think about this one.

It is harder to gain wisdom than it is to gain knowledge.

"Every man is encompassed by a cloud of comforting convictions, which move with him like flies on a summer day" -Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

"If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it." Edward L. Bernays

*Maybe you don't want to know all of the answers. Maybe you shouldn't know all of the answers. And then.... Maybe you are the answer. Dwell on that before your head explodes.

Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. Deal with it.

(Regarding Lie Detector Tests) "[Polygraph screening] is completely without any theoretical foundation and has no validity... the diagnostic value of this type of testing is no more than that of astrology or tea-leaf reading" -former Supervisory Special Agent Dr Drew C. Richardson, FBI Laboratory Division

*Personally, I think a lot of what people say they think about something or someone is normally quite a bit different from what they're really thinking about that same subject or person. I would like to be wrong about that. Do you say what you feel or what others would like to hear?

*Subtlety is a form of deception.

*Everyone has an agenda -for the good or bad for others -and especially themselves.

"Irreverence is is the champion of liberty and it's one sure defense" -Mark Twain

The Gene Pool could use a little chlorine

"The Optimist: "I have no friends, no family, no money, no food, no credit, no luck, no hope and no future. However, I do have matches, toothpicks, chewing gum, paper clips, rubber bands, shoelaces and some Scotch Tape. Maybe things aren't so bad." -George Carlin

*Damn, I miss George Carlin. I think a lot of what he said pretty much revealed himself to be a realist instead of a pessimist. Things are easier to swallow when you are thrown the bone of humor first. God, he was funny as hell.

*Advertisers, in every form of media, use humor and repetition as a way to take your money while you're still looking. Gullibility is counted on. Talk about the kings of manipulation!

*A great song will change your mood. And great is a matter of perception.

*Discovery of anything is good, perhaps. What you do with it is more important.

*Do you have anything to add?

OK, I am sorry, I've got nothing. You said it all...:)

Well, I did learn a whole new meaning of an Optimist. HAHA George Carlin was awesome. I miss him too.

Have a wonderful weekend. Is it really raining ice at yours???

Kelly said...

Hell yeah, it rained ice. And then rain, snow, freezing rain, more snow and so on. Right now, our county is on a level 3 snow emergency. You can be ticketed by the police for just being out on the road. I'm staying here... safe and warm.

So ya forgot what you were thinking about, aye? LOL.

Good to hear you're a George Carlin fan. He was awesome, I agree. I've got all of his books, albums, HBO specials and more.

Good to hear from you. I'll be at your site when I'm done eating breakfast. :)
