I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I thought it was time to do one again.
These are just a bunch of off-the-wall thoughts that I just jot down here, there, and everywhere, and eventually post on the blog. Some of these are silly. Some are serious. Some are probably neither. Anyway, you’ve been warned.
No matter how you use the word “expose” it always sounds nefarious and creepy, even around the most germane of things, like ice cream.
“Let me expose you to the wonders of cookie dough ice cream!”
No thank you.
“The only thing better than singing is more singing.” —Ella Fitzgerald unknowingly explaining how she’s never heard a soloist in church.
The way in which J. K. Rowling ends almost every chapter of the Harry Potter series on a cliffhanger makes me think she had something to do with the writing of LOST. Here’s to hoping HP ends better than LOST did.
“A man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.” —Don Corleone
I harbor genuine anger about the fact that high schoolers are forced to learn geometry in high school but aren’t taught the basics of personal finance.
The other day, Susie and I were driving home from Indiana, and I pointed at the setting sun and was marveling at it to her.
I said something to the effect of, “The sun is so crazy, dude. That big circle in the sky is a giant nuclear reactor that’s so big and so powerful you literally get cancer if you’re outside for too long.”
She just said, “Uh huh…” and nodded. God bless that woman.
Ok, not to belabor the point, but seriously, think about the sort of good in the world that could happen if we focused high school mathematics on wise investing rather than advanced algebra.
I’m reading through the Harry Potter series and I find it exceedingly hilarious (probably too funny) that Christians rejected the books for so long because of witchcraft without really paying attention to the fact that Harry is a Christ-type. Sometimes we just need to chill, y’all.
Hey wannabe pastor guru guy, if you’re more focused on being a “thought leader” in some obscure area than you are on real life, stop it. If it seems like your Twitter followers love you more than your family does, that’s not good.
Manufactured online influence is no substitute for influence in the real world.
(I have to remind myself of this regularly.)
