In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

People Should Be Paying Attention

After watching a multitude of commercials, and watching people I know, the use of voice activated devices is becoming a dependency. I understand the convenience, but these devices remove certain mental exercises that may be necessary. That, and anything that can listen to a command can broadcast all sounds received.

I din't know how this will all end up, but I really don't see it ending as well as perceived. There's a point where convenience leads to laziness and a lack of initiative. Both lead to dependency, eventual poor health, and a society ripe for manipulation by those without the best interests of citizens in mind.

    1. Whoever it is, whether private, or government, doesn't have the privacy demanded by the Constitution in mind.

  2. I have one in the bedroom. I hope my NSA agent likes snoring.
