I’ve got a project for you, Sheldon Cooper.

I mean, why can’t we harness the power of lightning? Or hurricanes and tornadoes? Just imagine the power generated by these natural phenomena. Let me emphasize NATURAL. Stuff that is going to happen anyways! Hey…we are already messing with solar, wind, and water power. This would just be one level up from that. If we can figure this out, eventually, we will also figure out how to make flying cars, probably.

Idioms of Idiocy

If you are standing in a group of ten random people, one of those ten believes in lizard people, a worldwide pedophile ring, and a flat Earth. Could anyone predict that the National Enquirer would all of a sudden become serious journalism? I blame the movie “Men in Black”. In one scene, the character played by Tommy Lee Jones tells the character played by Will Smith, as they are looking through supermarket tabloids at the newsstand, “Best investigative reporting on the planet”. It was a movie, people! A MOVIE! A Fictional Story! Just as QAnon is fictional nonsense! Grow up, please! You are starting to frighten me!

Proverbs Per Perspective

The early bird getting the worm means to get out there as soon as you can to achieve your goals. But…what about the worm? What does the worm have to say about this? It would be best for the worm to be lazy and sleep in late, since, if he gets up early, there are a lot of early birds that might get him. Birds have different ethics and attitudes than worms and, as a consequence, have different proverbs.
