Cheaper by the Dozen

Over the past month, I've been saving up. My two cents worth is now a dime a dozen... a baker's dozen.

1) Cursive is a dying art.

2) A coin toss is sacred.

3) I've noticed more and more people spending a lot of time snapping pix and videoing experiences, which makes me wonder if we are missing out on experiencing the experience.

4) I like equal opportunity slang. Take "bastiches" for instance.

5) No wonder productivity is down and our economy is in the pooper. I do believe there is at least in small part, a direct correlation between our economic woes and the amount of people who spend time on facebook during normal working hours. I find the huge number of posts from 8 to 5 fascinating, and quite telling.

6) No one should have more than 1 indoor cat... N-O-one.

7) Concerns about health, the environment, and ethical eating do not require giving up meat. What they do require is a new ethics of eating animals: one rooted in moderation, mindfulness, and respect. Rather than urging people to consume only plants, doesn't it make more sense to encourage them to eat an omnivorous diet that is healthy, ethical, and ecologically sound?

8) It's quite a different experience when a well-spoken intellectual peppers their language with f-bombs, than when a not-so-well-spoken person does the same. The former comes across as fascinating and expressive, while the later comes off as a complete idiot.

9) I now know what to call these musical loops in my head... Earworms ~ an inability to dislodge a song and prevent it from repeating itself in one's head. Also known as, brain worms, sticky music, cognitive itch and stuck song syndrome. 

10) We are so privately wealthy and publicly poor.

11) We just don't make smart people like we used to.

12) The widespread corruption in politics is more than citizens are willing to acknowledge and address. Apathy is a cancer in our society.

13) "The Cheese stands alone." ~ Omar
