It Takes Many Types of Individuals to Make Up a World, and for the Most Part This is a Good Thing.

It takes many types of individuals to make up a world, and for the most part this is a good thing. Although I can’t wrap my brain around the varied thought patterns, I’m “a live and let live” kind of guy. As long as your goals bring no harm to yourself or anyone else, and hopefully, seek to uplift you and those around you through Jesus, I imagine I could jump aboard and share the ride.

That being said, I’ll use this as a non-related segue. Not so long ago, you could purchase a miniature television. Once you reached your destination, plug it in, fiddle with the antennae, and watch, limited to what you could receive over the airways.

Two things I could never get behind: miniature and airline televisions. I guess the reason being (especially with the mini TV) having to stare at such a small screen, and in the other case, the noise associated with air travel.

Now, I’ve found something that trumps these two dislikes and that would be trying to watch a movie on a smartphone. Please don’t take this statement the wrong way, I wish I was mentally wired to accept the fact that entertainment can be had via ultra-small media.

Alas, I wish I could accept that all good things come in small packages, but this transcends my ability to tolerate what I am unable to tolerate; however, I digress and would be remiss if I failed to wish you a stellar week to the power of 10, and may God bless and keep you.

I Tired ‘o’ Mush. Tonite I Gets Pizza From Pizza Store

young-kid-with-cell-phoneI’m contemplating beginning a manuscript (I say beginning because I’m not sure it could ever be finished) on prevalence ridiculously personified.

This would be somewhere between an electronic “how to” manual, The Human Condition and Why…why what, you ask? No rhyme or reason, just why.

Now I will lay out a basic outline of this forth coming monster.

First: The smart phone. Just as my own personal survey, I pay attention to easy statistical situations, for instance, an elevator. The next time you’re ferrying up and down in one of these closed transports, notice how many people have their head down and are sliding their fingers merrily across the face of the phone.

Likewise, you can usually tell those who have a cell phone hanging on their side or in the top of their pocket book not being used.

I know this is not a major scientific study done over a wide group for an extended period of time; however, I determined three out of five persons with a mobile phone (and let’s face it, there aren’t many people without one) are using them at any given time.

I saw two young men walking side by side in a parking lot, both conversing on mobile phones, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Are they talking to each other?”

Now, the demographic for the mobile phone phenomena, be it a smart or a stupid phone (I want you to notice that smart and stupid is interchangeable between phone and operator) knows no boundaries. Kids operate them; seniors operate them and every age in between.

Now, I must admit, I fall into the category of smart phone with stupid operator.

It all comes down to this: we’ve created a monster that’s never going to go away, but aren’t all the nice melodies playing everywhere we go from these electronic creatures a nice by product of an unnecessary evil?
