One of my favorite cartoons of all time was a Farside one where a couple of aliens buzzed an earth city, terrorizing the humans, while the aliens yelled “Yeehaaa!”. I love it. I’ll have to go through my books and see if I have that one. It is my all time favorite. Second choice is the one where the farmer walks through the barn door and catches the cows drawing a diagram of how to cut up a human into “ribs, rump roast” etc. Creepy, but very funny.

Anywhoo, the road kill count for this week:

  • Raccoons – 3
  • Bunny rabbits – 2
  • Birds – 1
  • Unidentified – 1
  • Opossums – 2

That’s it.  I noticed yesterday that on my way to work, there was a large flattened raccoon to the side of the southbound lane of traffic, and by the time I was heading home, it was completely gone. I’m wondering if people pick them up or if animals do. I thought animals would just eat them where they fall, but maybe they pick them up and carry them off to a less noisy spot to lunch.

Here is a fun definition of roadkill that I borrowed from the website listed below the following:

“Roadkill – To see roadkill in your dream, represents unavoidable death. The death may be a symbolic death representing an end to a habit (whew!), behavior or idea. It is time to let go of old habits and put those ideas to rest, as you are only prolonging the inevitable. Alternatively, roadkill suggests that there is some issue in your past that is hindering your pursuit of your goals.
To dream that an animal is about to become roadkill, indicates loss of control in some aspect of your life.Consider the type of animal that is hit for clues as to what aspect of your life is out of control.” (My life, out of control? Ha, ha, haaaaa!)

So there you go, more food for thought. More like roadkill for thought. Hmmm . . . Do we have a future, or are we all just roadkill in the Universe? Wrap your head around that. Go read some Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Douglas Adams: “In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.”

Douglas Adams: “It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.”

 Douglas Adams: “The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t.”

Douglas Adams: “There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

Douglas Adams: “Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”
