Random Thoughts

I am not going to lie to you Company, it is the second day of the New Year and I am already lacking creativity. Seriously lacking creativity. Now that you know that get ready for some random thoughts.

1.) When watching basketball on TV, why do they always congratulate the free-throw shooter even when he misses? No, that misses the point. If he thinks he is doing good when he misses...what incentive does he have to make it? No. If he misses then you should punch him in the face.

2.) 32 degrees in the shade is not frigid. 3 degrees at noon is maybe frigid. -42 at noon with the sun behind the horizon is truly frigid. I can go along with that.

3.) With some people, you just can't win. So then why do we try?

4.) In the movies and on television, we are lead to believe that the more screens and the larger screens a computer has the more powerful it is. I am not sure that is true. In fact, I would say that some of the most powerful computers have normal-size screens or no screens at all. Of course, I cannot confirm this.

5.) Sometimes, I want to roll over and crush a big pack of snowmobiles sort of like they do with the motorcycles in Smokey and the Bandit. I just think that would be neat.

6.) I got points deducted from my score on one of my posts by a commenter because I had many grammar and spelling errors. And you know what? That's exactly how it's supposed to be. I don't deserve a 5 out of 5 if I dangle participles all over the place.

7.) Why don't more people play Chinese checkers? Do the Chinese even play Chinese checkers? I am so full of questions about this game I can't even begin to describe it.

8.) I couldn't tell you what color terror level it is right now if you paid me, and I would bet most people at the Department of Defense or Department of Homeland Security or any other department does either.

9.) Big Dave and Company is pro cupcake, but only in moderation of course. We are not proponents of a cupcake-based diet.

10.) Researchers announced today that devil facial tumor disease is caused by Schwann cells. I have no idea what that means and I am currently struggling to care. Sorry Tasmanian devils, that's just the way it is.
