Sunday Musings #146

Someone just honked to get me out of my parking spot faster, so now I have to sit here until both of us are dead.

This quote really appeals to me!

I hate being pushed about by someone who thinks their time is more important than mine.

I hate bullies and will always stand up to them.

I hate being told what to do.

So yes, I totally get this quote!



Sunday Musings #145

Alcohol kills brain cells slowly, but that never bothered me because I’m not in a hurry.

Actually I think that a little of what you fancy, in moderation, does you more good than harm.

As to killing brain cells, the general anaesthetic I had over 10 years ago destroyed more of my brain than all of the vodka I’ve drunk my entire life!

I was stupid for at least a year; couldn’t remember things; couldn’t solve my crosswords; and was exhausted all the time.

So the next time I need an operation, to do less harm, I think I’ll ask them to knock me out the old fashioned way, with a bottle of vodka!

Maybe if we start telling people the brain is an App they’ll start using it.

Sometimes I think that the intelligence of the human race is deteriorating more with every new device that comes on the market.

We evolved opposable thumbs for grasping things, not for playing games on electronic devices.

The more time people spend connected to their devices, the less time they spend using their brain and actually thinking.

And as the saying goes; use it or lose it!


post script: Before I get any backlash here, let me say that there is nothing wrong in playing games or being on social media. It’s just that I think some time every day should be spent away from it; going outside and connecting with nature or other people – actually in person; reading a book; creating something – a painting, writing, planting seeds; learning something new and using your brain. 

And a Thank You to Quiall at Butterfly Sand, whose Shady Quip made me think of this today.
