Roadless wilderness

 

Wouldn’t it be great if we just got rid of cars and most roads?  Sigh . . .  if only. And yes, I know what that would mean for our food transportation, etc.

Road kill count in this week:

  • Birds – 3
  • Squirrels – 2
  • Unidentified – 2

Feeling like roadkill on the road of life yet?  If you don’t you’re not paying attention, or as someone else said, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” Whatever.

Lilly Tomlin is the one who has all her ducks in a row:

“Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It’s the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then–we elected them.”

“Reality is a crutch for people who can’t cope with drugs.”

“The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.”

“Don’t be afraid of missing opportunities. Behind every failure is an opportunity somebody wishes they had missed.”

Lily Tomlin knows.

“Mongo just pawn in the game of life.” – Mongo in Mel Brooks Blazing Saddles.

What was that commercial that was on the radio for a long time? “We don’t know anything – is that really 2% milk in that coffee you ordered? You don’t know.

Do you know for sure that you live in 3 dimensions? Really?

“Sure, our surroundings certainly appear to exist in three dimensions, but any good Cartesian will tell you that the appearance of a material object alone is insufficient evidence of its true nature. So how do we go about proving that we aren’t, in fact, deluded inhabitants of Abott’s two-dimensional Flatland, or even the one-dimensional Lineland?” Ha, ha, ha!

Yeah . . .
