Thursday's Thoughts

  • This morning (02/10/2016) on NPR Sam Baker said after a dramatic musical bump to the effect, Bernie Sanders convincingly beat Hilary Rodham Clinton in the New Hampshire primary. This was followed by a Bernie Sanders sound bite from the primary. A moment later Baker said something like, Finally, on the other side Donald Trump won the nomination. and then nothing- no sound bite or quote from Trump. You could practically hear Baker's eyes rolling.
  • You would have to very intellectually dishonest to not see NPR's left leaning.
  • I personally know 2 different people who only voted for David Walker for sheriff as he door knocked their homes and spoke to them while campaigning. One of them was thinking about another guy as he had heard something good about him and the other did not care at all about the sheriff's office (although he felt highly invested in other positions and was a well informed voter).
  • The snails have made my aquarium water so clear it is almost distracting.
  • If cost was no object what is the one thing you would leave as a legacy, that thing your descendants would rememember for generations? For me it would  be to have an amazing library of rare, old, autographed or otherwise worthwhile books. This might even include a Guiness book of World Records collection of autographed works.
  • Isn't there a guy/group who own a Bible signed by tons of famous people including multiple Presidents and astronauts?
  • A suicide bomb truck AKA vehicle borne IED destroyed by Javelin missile.
  • I have books autographed by David Mcolluch, Nguyen Cao Ky and another Vietnamese general whose name I don't recall at the moment. Why the Vietnamese authors you ask? One of my friends is a part of the once South Vietnamese military now a resident of the US underworld Vietnam dudes who personally know Vietnamese authors club.
  • Yeah- it is a thing. Look it up.
