  • The Scout's Table; The Revealing of the Falchion: Success travels slow and strikes at the speed of light. Information is a dirty scout who fails in fame, as always, he requires his tips, sorrys, blames, and follies. This is why they bring opera glasses to the theater. It reminds them they're dealing with spies and scouts. A good investment is any breakthrough which eliminates a vast tradition. Any business burgeoning must hire a scout returning who knows of his place and his ways, for without is a business of doubt, which yearns forever without, the knowledge and language of its days. Any convincing argument prevails in its positivity for one cannot negate an aspect impending on a society. Therefore, the scout who stands last is the winner of understanding but still a loser for his dinner and demanding. I recommend turning off the entertainment and hiring an information specialist, generally a graphic designer, who knows what they're doing so you can go on with your business. But, since one cannot negate an impending aspect of society, at least get some binoculars. Yes. Opera glasses. Do you see? They took out your information specialist and called it 'big business' and handed it to you. Nk. What we need to do is restore the smaller graphic arts community. People were tempted by the scout's game which deals in arts and sciences but it's really a game for the less wealthy. Legal scouts. Business scouts. Legal scout. Business scouts. Hopefully, not military scouts. Think about that the next time you take several thousand trips to Fed Ex to make copies, or are bombarded with worthless entertainment. Stratego (R)?

  • WANT TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET? Here are 6 things every individual can do to save the Earth: 1. Go VEGAN (food, clothes, accessories, toiletries, furniture etc.) 2. Consume products LESS and become an INFORMED consumer. - Don't buy anything new (except if necessary, like medicine or contact lenses). You can buy basically everything USED or make it yourself. - Do your RESEARCH before buying anything. Many products are destroying the environment via the extraction of raw materials, the production process, transportation etc. Also production lines are full of human labor abuses. Do your RESEARCH if you must buy something. Remember, your purchase of a product acts to support that company and everything that went into that product. - If you don't know 100% how a product was made at each and every step, then do NOT buy the product. You could be unknowingly supporting the extinction of orangutans in Indonesia (ex. palm oil) or the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest (ex. beef). No joke. Stop buying products unless you are 100% informed. Don't be selfish. You don't need most products. Buy it used at eBay/Craigslist/Goodwill or make it yourself instead of contributing to the destruction of the planet. - Check if the product has any certifications, such as: RainforestAlliance, FairTrade, RSPO - Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, USDA Organic etc. - Stop buying via Amazon!!! It has rampant human rights abuses that have been clearly reported on many times, including abuses and neglect during COVID-19. In addition, despite some of its 'climate pledges', Amazon has a terrible negative impact on the environment. Think factories, energy-usages, packing for all of those boxes, carbon emissions for the trucks that deliver them etc. If you buy via Amazon you are supporting human rights abuses and environmental degradation. Do you really need that product? Just buy it used or at least directly form the actual company. Don't be selfish, be responsible. 3. Go plastic and packaging free. Don't buy anything with non-compostable packaging, or that's made of non-environmental material. If you do, make sure it's recyclable and recycle it properly. 4. ADOPT and REDUCE family sizes. Humans have overpopulated the world and are destroying the environment as a result. The human population is almost at 8 billion. We need to intelligently and voluntarily work to get our numbers down to at least half of that. It is a very personal issue, but please consider adopting children instead of creating new children. If having biological children, consider smaller family sizes. - Donate money and/or volunteer at organizations that support women's rights and literacy. On average, women's illiteracy rates are inverse to the number of children they have. I.e. the number of children a woman has decreases as she becomes literate and more educated. Here are some ideas: Room to Read, World Literacy Foundation, Malala Fund, UNICEF, Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), Afghan Institute of Learning, Invest in Girls, Educate Girls, AGE Africa, Asante Africa Foundation, She’s the First, Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE). 5. VOTE and become politically informed. Make sure to stay politically informed and pressure your local, state and national representatives to support issues and legislation that save and protect the environment and species. VOTE during elections. 6. Use only RENEWABLE energy and use LESS of it. - Stop flying unless absolutely necessary (and buy carbon offsets if you do). Walk, bike, ride a velomobile, use public transportation instead of gas-powered cars. - See if your energy company has an option for you to buy green energy or support green energy initiatives. - Install your own renewable energy sources, like solar panels. - Be conscious throughout your day and use as little energy as possible. Ex. instead of turning on the heat, just wear a few more layers and close the windows. We can save the planet if everyone just does their part. Everyone please act! Check out this presentation for more information on human impacts on the environment and what you can do to help:

Next year John, what about the idea that Repub governors ordered their homeless bused out to Dem states where they knew we were "snowflakes" who would take care of them (?!) and we could afford because of our massive budgets because - you know - legalized marijuana.

  • "Emotionally antiseptic vacuum" Wow now that's a turn of phrase!... May I never know what that feels like. I write music and that would be my worst nightmare incarnated... Let's just put it this way. People who want an emotionally sterilized environment are scared of having to learn how to engage and cope with their emotions on a healthy level... Just saying

    Leon EstelloLeon EstelloMánuði síðan
    • I read something about this! Engaging in any art helps people connect with their emotions and understand the world better. It keeps people from becoming dictators. The best example I found on this theory was about Hitler - he completely stopped painting when he went into politics. I'll make sure to set apart some time to draw, sketch, play an instrument or just sing when I'm President. Better to do that than to turn into something like the 45th.
