     Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

On the scientific side, I would like to see the data.

For example, a live feed of how many people and others are saying those words.

Maps, graphs, spikes, etc.

I would also like to see how many are thinking the thought.

Usually, people are forced into the thought when they sit down to the Thanksgiving meal and say their prayers.

Although I did meet a young man (mentioned in an earlier blog) who begins every day writing down a list of things he is Thankful for (clean water is always on the list), it is safe to say that the bulk of the population waits for today.

It’s a calibration of the mind.

How could the data be used?  Put it in a jar under the bed?  Turn it into a cell phone “app” to sell (to hospitals first until the first round of money’s made)?

The government could use the data to distribute funds and workers to areas of unthankfulness.

On the social side, it’s obvious. Things quiet down.

Aside from the widget mongers, who, as in the game of musical chairs are left standing, there is Peace.

Traffic goes away  – people have gotten somewhere.

They have gotten to the place.

Whew!

On the political side….ah, the poor political side…nothing worth noting here.

On the religion side, well, Pilgrim, this is what religion has been talking about.

(I am pretty sure gluttony laws are suspended- it’s a feast for God’s sake!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

and Thank You!

until next year,

     We were going to attempt another explanation of this holiday but am holding out on the hope that most people can figure it out themselves.

Thank You Veterans.

Of course, some of the rice never makes it into the pot.

Happy Labor Day !

Happy Labor Day !

The Quiet.

It’s deafening.

The sound of Peace.

The Harmony of Quiet.

The exposure of the Futility.

The 24 hour snooze button on the alarm clock that hits itself.

The Message that cannot be ignored.

The Surrender.

The Gratitude.

The Reality Check – (direct deposit).

Something for Everyone.

Multiple sightings of a “saucer shaped”  object are being reported from the suburbs.

Noise Canceling Headphones

  Noise Canceling Headphones

Sunday, July 30 th, 2017

     I live in a noisy neighborhood on a busy street.

I often need to use noise canceling headphones to cut the noise enough to sleep or concentrate.

When I got up this morning (oddly pretty quiet – Sunday, though) I looked back at the bed and saw the headphones there by the pillow where they need to be and thought:  ahhh, everything in place.   Then I realized:

It is ironic that I use headphones now to listen to nothing.

Scarbage

Scarbage

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

     Scarbage is the evolved state of garbage left unattended. It leaves a scar after it is cleaned up, like a wound.  It is permanent.  It is vulnerable to infection.  It can be contagious.

It is a combination of social, biological, chemical and physical processes.

Although many of the components in the creation of scarbage have been identified, the processes involved are complex and not yet completely understood.  There is debate among the scientific community over whether or not scarbage is self-aware.

The major components required for scarbage to synthesize are usually a combination of:

  1. Anti-social behavior
  2. Debris
  3. Air
  4. Ignorance
  5. Unsanitary conditions
  6. Exposure to UV light
  7. Time

The time required for scarbage to synthesize varies.

In addition, the type of scar left on the landscape varies.

The three major categories are:

  • Visual
  • Fragrant
  • Audible

It can also be a combination of all three.

There is a lack of consensus whether scarbage is a disease or disorder.

In spite of the fact that an effective vaccine has been available for centuries, many cities refuse to participate in the inoculation.

There is speculation that this refusal is itself a symptom of dormant infection, and may be a mechanism in reproduction,  propagation and overall life-cycle of scarbage.
