"It's so easy to be smart but it's a struggle to be wise"

-Todd Rundgren (from Stood Up)

My Words of Wisdom
  • You have to eat hot dog before you can appreciate steak.
  • Often the best things come unexpectedly from the worst situations.
  • Any problem can be resolved. Break it down, divide it up, keep an open mind.
  • Plus one from Mark Twain that is so true...
       All generalizations are false, including this one.

·Why All Clocks are Fundamentally Flawed. (1 page PDF)

·An informal look at How we Hear Sounds. (1 page PDF)

·A fun look at Why Tigers are Orange. (1 page PDF)

·No matter what you look at or what you think about, your observations and conclusions are always based on your own perceptions and past experiences. We try to understand others but can that really be done without walking their walk?

·Why isn't sport fishing considered hunting?

·Why would you kill something? Anything?

·Why do Todd Rundgren's titles and lyrics come into play so very often? (like "Something/Anything?" above)

·Why can't we be happy with what we have?
Do we need new models of every car every year? Everything must become bigger (or smaller), faster, smarter or in some tiny way improved.

·What's so wrong with being off-line for the day?

·Why do some people want their eyes open when enjoying music? It's not a visual experience.

·Why do they say 24/7/365?
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It's redundant. 24/365 or 24/7/52 make sense.

·A global ceiling on corporate earnings or on an individuals wealth could provide a source of money to solve global issues.
Those who want to thrive would still be rewarded but only up to a certain point. Some may find they could then slow down and actually enjoy life.

·If a product is packaged using non-recyclable or non-biodegradable material the company should pay a fine, the cost of which should not be passed on to the consumer.

·Why don't the ones who declare war actually fight in one? Instead they send regular people to kill other regular people.
