Porn Stars, Ants, and a Stupid Calendar January 20, 2013


Random thoughts for today…

I wonder if any people who I know personally lead secret lives…..you know, the kind where a good, well-liked family man has another family in the next town over.  That shit’s crazy. I cannot keep up with one family; what would I do with another one?

Do porn stars worry about their “good side” when being photographed? “No, damn it! Place the camera on the left! You KNOW the right side makes my vagina  look too big!”

Why, in America, is gambling only okay when the government is in charge of it? We can play the state lottery (in some states), we can go to the casino in Vegas or on tribal land, but it is illegal to play a friendly game of poker for a few hundred dollars. Oh, I know, it’s because the government does SUCH a GREAT job of spending money wisely!

There are some really strange jobs in the world. Think about it. Someone has the job of designing dildos. Someone else goes in to work everyday to try them out and write the review…”Product A gave pleasure in 32 seconds, while Product B missed the mark (much like my ex).” WTF? I want that job….but then at home, it would be like, ” Not tonight, dear, I had a long, hard day at work. Literally.”

What is the purpose of ants? Why are they here? They really piss me off when they sneak into my house and find the last 1/2 box of cereal.

Do you ever wonder if those of us with “mental” problems aren’t actually just people with more developed use of our brains? We just need to learn how to channel the energy a little better…

If you could know the exact day and time of your death, would it make things better, or worse?

Am I the only one who’s bothered by our calendar? I like when things are evenly distributed. Every month should have the same number of days, damn it! (Learning it in school would be so much easier!)  And no more of this “every four years is a leap year” shit. Really? It didn’t work out right, so just throw on an extra day?  Whoever made it up is definitely not  OCD!

I hate the way my voice sounds when I hear it recorded. Is that how I sound to everyone else when I speak? If so, why hasn’t anyone stabbed me in the throat with a pair of scissors yet?

    I am with you on all of them … except maybe the testing out dildos. Do you think the first person who designed one said “If I build it, they will come”?

  2. Ha!
    All of these (and more), I have thought long hours about.
    Sick, I know.
    I just wish someone would actually answer these damn questions!

  3. Ahahahahahaha!

    Wow! I used to have to tape record discussions (when I was a practicing ethnographer instead of a mere people watcher), and I absolutely hated transcribing them because of the sound of my own voice! Every now and then I’ll get some feedback when I’m skyping with someone, and it makes me want to never talk again, lol!

    I do wonder if people more prone to mental “problems” need do exactly what you wrote (I wonder if the higher occurrence of mental illness in the U.S has to do with a spiritual poverty, or maybe it’s just that the statistical analysis isn’t as good in other countries–my brain bounces between the weird and the rational, if there is such a thing). Anyway, here’s a really interesting article that talks about how genius mentalities are more prone to mental illness (the article suggests that it is because they notice much more in a given situation and their brains cannot adequately weed out irrelevant stimuli). http://people.howstuffworks.com/genius5.htm

    Earlier on the article also mentions that smokers (even those who have quit) have about a 1% decline in brain function which is believed to be linked to decreased lung capacity and less oxygen to the brain. Does this mean that someone with a naturally strong set of lungs, who might get more oxygen to their brain throughout their life and childhood development than the average person, would naturally have an increased brain capacity?

    Sorry to mentally regurgitate on your page! You got me thinking, which usually leads to some sort of verbal unloading on my part.

      And if you think about it, most “genius” types are rather….quirky. That makes me feel a little better about marching to a different drummer. As for the lung capacity thing, if that held true then many divers (the ones who go tank-less) would be brilliant, right? As a kid, we used to play a game where we timed ourselves holding our breath to see who could do it the longest (Yeah, I know, we didn’t have much entertainment back in the day)…did that make us smarter?

  4. hahahahaha you’re hilarious. I’m with you on the sound of my recorded voice
