Someone’s really into color…

  Makes me wonder what they do at night, when the sun goes down… And it’s too dark to see all the trouble they’ve gone to. Is the color still there, if there’s no light by which it can be seen? If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to see it, does it still make a sound? If a man speaks in the woods, and no one is there to hear him, is he still wrong?

Honestly, I thought the carpet had bunched up a bit. Just the tiniest bit of an unconscious stumble. A stutter. A hitch in my giddy-up. A catch in my ketchup. A tick in my tick-tock… 

Einstein Quotes…

  “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.” “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” “Peace cannot be kept by force.

I don’t understand the physics of it – yet there it is.

Wow… It’s amazing what you can learn by surfing around the net… For instance, did you know that the closest living relatives of the aardvark are the elephant shrews, along with sirenians, hyraxes, tenrecs and elephants? Nor is the aardvark closely related to the South American Anteater, despite a superficial likeness… And it seems that on the old Pink Panther cartoons they actually did use an aardvark, despite the animal being nocturnal… Although the snout was a bit misrepresented… Now, I couldn’t care less about aardvarks as much as the next guy, but I thought I needed to start with a somewhat snappier topic than the one I DO wish to talk about, and I didn’t want to lose you in the very first paragraph… So for those of you who got here via a Google search for “aardvarks” (which is how I got the above information, by the way… except for the Pink Panther bit…), I apologize… It’s okay if I lose you in the second paragraph, though… I will have still earned my …
