The Book Is Still Out

The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the White House is “suffering from mental disability” and behaving as “no sane person” should. I am no fan of Iran or of Rouhani, but since history is determined by what people perceive events to be over time, the book is still out on this one.  Only time can tell how the Trump administration will be judged, but I am inclined to think that it won’t end up being a rose garden for him.

Missed It By That Much

I had a Maxwell Smart moment yesterday, because it was recycling day.  My bin was already placed out front waiting for pickup when I indulged in my second cup of coffee after writing my quantum physics post.  I finished the creamer, so I washed out the empty container and as I was going to put it with the rest of my recycling, the truck came along before I got to the end of my driveway.

All Entries Are In

The One Line broke and the monkey got choked and we will not see that cute little bugger again. Linda Hill says that it is time for a new badge for her One-Liner Wednesday, which I write in every week religiously.  I am not submitting a bade this year, as most of my stuff is too far out there for normal people, but 13 contestants are competing for your vote.  This is not an easy choice as all of the badges look good to me, but it is a much smaller field than all the Democrats running for president in the 2020 election.  The picture above shows all 13 badges in a glance and I tried to resize all of them to make it fair.  I apologize if they look a bit blurry, but I hope this helps everyone and remember to vote, because we will all be stuck with the new badge probably for another year.

People Seeking Danger

It is sort of like, “If you build it, he will come,” but Shoeless Joe Jackson is not going to be climbing Mount Everest, even if he puts his shoes on.  By conquering the greatest mountain in the world this becomes a way for people to conquer themselves, or perhaps flirting with death makes them feel more alive.  Jon Krakauer an American writer and mountaineer said, “Let’s not mince words: Everest doesn’t attract a whole lot of well-balanced folks.”  Climbers are dying in record numbers this year.
