Do You Think About Life?

Most people only think about their life.  What are they going to eat for their next meal?  What is their boss going to ask them to do?  Getting through the day is the first and foremost task.  This is however short sighted because there are bigger issues at hand that you have probably thought about but most likely not often.  This post will bring some that cross my mind.

  • Dan Reynolds

    In a less popular song by Imagine Dragons called Hear Me, the line “Maybe if I fall asleep, I won’t breathe right” hit me in a way that I’m sure Dan Reynolds did not anticipate.  Or maybe he did.  In no relation to the song, this lyric makes me think that at any point of your life, you might not wake up if you go to sleep.  Most people thoughtlessly go through life with a feeling of obligation that you will wake up and die of old age.  Life doesn’t work that way.  It’s obviously crazy to live your life paranoid that at anytime you could keel over and die, but the possibility exists.

  • space_earth_digital_art_artwork_photo_manipulation_1920x1080_56972You are 1 of 7 billion people.  Your specific life has no meaning whatsoever in the grand scheme of things.  Nobody remembers that shitty ass presentation I gave in Business Communication when I couldn’t remember any of my part.  This macro perspective is wonderful to have when undertaking risks.  People only care about themselves and you are a second thought.  Recognizing the magnitude of 7 billion is also mind blowing.
  • Melting Pot The United States isn’t Obama.  It’s 400 years of European immigrants who have created a melting pot of people from all over the Earth.  The US is this incredible super power who has resources and technology that allow it to reign over poorer countries.  As pointed out by Gourlay in this post, even though we think we have problems, others have it much worse.  Residents of this country seem to think that we are the central hub of the world.  False.
  • AlienGetty460The wild idea of intelligent computers taking over the world or aliens abducting the planet are not as far fetched as immediately received.  Humans have been on the Earth for around 200,000 years and the Earth has been around for 4.5 billions years.  Nobody can predict the future and saying things cannot happen is incredibly closed minded.  I personally don’t believe in God or ghosts but if a beam of unknown light starts sending people up to the sky, I’m on board.
  • OJ Simpson Criminal Trial - Arrest of O.J. SimpsonI learned from The 90’s: The Last Great Decade (incredible program finishing tonight) a theory exists that OJ was acquitted as payback for the Rodney King beatings.  It truly was amazing watching all the white police officers slap hands in the courtroom for the terrible beating of Rodney.  The LA riots that ensued after the verdict was read  was unbelievable as well.  The LA police were told to let the riots go on and not to interfere because it would turn into another Rodney King.  The LA riots caused a billion dollars worth of damage and killed 53 and injured 2,000 more non-blacks.  I see now why black people look at the OJ verdict as bigger than OJ.  This really shouldn’t have been on this list but everyone loves to read about OJ.

Lack of Updates

I haven’t wrote anything because I’ve been recovering from one of my worst weekends in a while. It literally took 4 full days before I felt like myself again. Basically, I can’t control my binge drinking and I pretty much make out of control decisions at my elderly age of 25. I’ve considered going cold turkey from booze completely but that’s a bit extreme. Nevertheless I have to do something to combat this weekly occurrence of stupidity. I’m not going into it either cause it’s hurts to think about.

I read an article in the Journal today that said avg SAT scores dropped by a point or so. Basically white kids do the best in critical reading and Asians are the best at math and writing. Whites and Asians are top two in all categories followed by hispanics in third and blacks in last (native Americans were in there somewhere too). No point really just an FYI.

I also constantly read about Obama and the dems and their health care program. Just to make this clear to everyone who voted for Obama without knowing why you were voting for him. You voted for someone who wants to take from the 85% of the population who works, and give to the 15% of people who don’t work. Also if you haven’t seen the news, we are going to have a 10 trillion dollar deficit by 2019 if we continue spending as is. I cannot predict what this will do to our current situation but I know it’s better to be owed then to owe. I expect higher interest rates and rampant inflation in the near future. Also for all the people who voted for Obama because he wasn’t going to raise taxes on people making under 250,000. Think again, we will see this in the near term, mark my word. Just another campaign marked with empty promises to deceive the stupid American public.
