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.

A New Stupidity

I might be more observant, but I doubt it.

 I find more people - mostly young - walk down the street, without any knowledge of the traffic approaching, and in the travel lane. While this is inherently dangerous, the attitude of not paying intention appears to be due to stupidity. To exacerbate this problem, many are walking with their heads down, while they examine their cell phone.

The only cure for this problem involves logical thinking. I'm afraid such efforts are becoming more difficult for too many people.

    1. It is. The candidates for the award must be growing.

  2. Condition white. I see it all the time.
    Unfortunately, a certain demographic is starting to take advantage of it... Knockout Game and other attacks are easy when your prey is absorbed in a 3x5 screen and wearing headphones.
    Sad and stupid, actually.

    1. With many, it's as though they're daring someone to hit them. What they don't realize is that walking in the travel lane, in dark cloths, in low light conditions leads to accidents; not intentional efforts.

  3. "walking with their heads down, while they examine their cell phone."

    Another 'cure' involves driver of said vehicle who also becomes entranced with their cell phone.

    1. There needs to be an official term for this event. "Dumbass Twins" doesn't sound scientific, although "Duo Stultus Asinus Syndrome" might work.
