Random Thoughts


This thought occurred to me this morning: while using email, or another form of electronic communication, is there really a need for a P.S.?

It stands for post script, yes? Used when you forgot to include something in your original composition, or to add something that occurred since you finished your composition. Well, when you compose a letter using email there is no need to add this note at the end, is there? You can just go back and insert it wherever you want to in the “original” composition, thus ending the need for the P.S.

So long, Post Script. I will miss you.

P.S. I can’t do it!

While 13 is a prime number, 2013 is not. Here are the whole numbers by which you can exactly divide 2013:

1×2013
3×671
11×183
33×61

I hope I didn’t miss any.

http://m.espn.go.com/nba/story?storyId=8695865 So, when the NBA collects the fine, where does the money go? Does it go to the fans in attendance? Does it go to TNT for poor ratings? I’m not sure I understand the purpose of the fine. The article says they broke league rules, so they deserved the fine, but is a useful rule? I don’t know, and I’m not an NBA fan, so I don’t really care that much, but the thought of being fined for resting players is odd to me. Maybe the league should play fewer games. In the end it makes me think about how we submit to authority and to what authority we are submitting. This could be the government telling you that you can’t sell large sodas to customers. Oh wait…they already do.

…I have a morning to myself with time to read, reflect, and maybe even write, but do I have any ideas? Nope.

So, of the items I read this morning here are some that I found the most interesting:

Phoenix Story – My friend, Chris Booth, shares about his unusual encounter with a profound spiritual impact.

Should we repeal anti-gouging laws? – This is from Greg Mankiw’s blog and it has several links to follow. I read the three principal links and found that the case against anti-gouging laws stronger than the case supporting them. (Of course, I am already pre-disposed to think that way because of my belief in capitalism as a superior system of governing economic activity.)

The Petraeus story…I don’t know what to think about that. Walter Russell Meade had an interesting post on our countries divergent views on sex. I’m not sure that I drew any conclusions from his post except to shake my head at the world in which we live.

[Uncensored update! Sweet, I have an hour more than I thought thanks to the clocks in the room that I’m in not having been reset from last weeks time change! Which makes me ponder, do we really need daylight savings time? And if we were to get rid of it, which would I rather have…the regular time or the “saved” time?]

Oh…now I have an idea…I’ll start a new post and see if I can get it finished before I have to get on with my day.

 

You know it’s kind of funny…heat used to be just one of those things that you used in the winter time to keep your house warm. If it was too cold, you turned up the heat. Too hot? Turn it down.

Now, it’s like a staring contest between my body temperature and my wallet. The first one to blink loses. The contest lasts all winter and there will be a tally at the end to determine the winner.

To the chagrin of my family, my wallet has become a better “starer”.

Look at the section heading and keep in mind, what is impossible with men is possible with God.
