Past choices

We all make choices we regret. Sometimes those choices hurt us and sometimes they hurt others. Sometimes those choices are the right ones even though we are hurt by them. I think that we often romanticize things in our past as regrets because they were the right choice but we want to believe they were the wrong one because it hurt us or the right choice led to less than spectacular results.
Get over that shit. Seriously.

Space blankets

So they have found water on Mars.  The scientists that drive the rovers around said they would not drive them to look at it even if they were close enough.  They wouldn't want to contaminate the water with Earth microbes.  Really?  It's not like we are sending blankets infected with small pox. Although we probably would if we wanted to colonize. We probably sent pox blankets on the Voyager space craft.  Here aliens! A pictograph, a record,  and smallpox.  Hooray!
We are assholes.

Chem trails and mind control.

Some people think the government puts chemicals in the exhaust of planes to spread a mind control drug. They call them chemtrails. What they really are are contrails. Just water vapor. It would be ridiculous to try to spread chemicals through the exhaust of a plane. You could never hit the mark. The wind would blow the chemicals all over the place. And rain would bring it down to quickly. I think the idea is idiotic.
Besides,  everyone knows they put the  mind control chemicals in fireworks.  Duh.

Rain forest in Iowa.

The other day I was in a meeting where we were being lectured by a dude about safety. He made the point that some states have OSHA run by the federal government and some by state government. The money from fines goes to the state if the OSHA is run by the state. They use that money for roads and schools. If alicia is run by the federal government the fines go to the federal government where, as he put it "we don't know where that money goes, it could go to fund a rain forest in Iowa. They spend the money on all kinds of ridiculous things."
As we left the meeting I commented to my coworkers about the comment. After some poking fun of the reasoning that states spend their money well while the fed just blows the money on stupid crap one coworker said that a rain forest  in Iowa  was a pretty good idea.
We all agreed. A rain forest in Iowa seems like an awesome idea. I've been to Iowa. It is a bunch of flat. It could do with some heavy forestation. I understand  that it couldn't be a rain forest because of the climate but heavily forest it enough and it could get close.
I think a petition is in order.
Iowanian rain forest.
I like it.
Someone get on that.

It doesn't matter what tomorrow brings, if you are an asshole today,  you will be an asshole tomorrow.

Business and marriage.

Here is what I feel about businesses denying service to anyone. Businesses are people, people whose business it is to make money over all else. Do businesses make money denying people service? No. Businesses make money providing services. If they want to consider business people, then they must be altruistic. Serving gay people will not lose businesses money.  Being bigots will lose businesses money.

I think of religions as a net. Years back there were few religions with many people in each. A net with holes, but the rope was so thick that it still caught almost everyone. As the number of people and the number of religions grows, the net becomes bigger but the ropes become thinner. The holes get bigger. Soon there are so many different religions and versions of the same religion that people doubt any could be true. The net soon won't catch much of anything.
Or maybe a web is a better example.  Or maybe a lace doily. No, macrame.  Definitely macreme.
