Headlights On

…for all the world to see.

 

Brilliant idea

>Reely looking forward; brilliant idea!
It is understandable why people don’t want to waste energy with their headlights on all the time. When it is a beautiful day outside, not a cloud in the sky and you are going for a Sunday drive through the country. That is fantastic.
But, when the sun is getting low, cloudy, raining or driving through the city you need to turn your headlights on. Most people now have autolights that come on when the sensor orders it to. You are allowed to turn them on when you want; sensor or no sensor. What makes sense is people turn on their lights to save people and animals and even the junkyard.
At schools you have teenage drivers and pedestrians that are really anxious at the end of the day to get home, etc. With your lights on you can save a life. There is no statistic informing how many youths are saved by vehicles with their headlights on. But, just to save one life is worth it everyday. Think of it like each year you go without killing a pedestrian you actually save a life. You don’t have to put a candle on your birthday cake, but, you can still enjoy it.
If you are driving through the woods or into a tunnel, turn your headlights on. There are animals that can’t judge your speed and distance. And they may be shocked by the headlights but you can’t win them all.
If you don’t care about saving someone’s life or an animal that didn’t do anything to you. Think about the junkyard. There are enough wrecks in the dump already. Can’t you see you can help? Then turn your lights on!

Tropopause Terror

…weather on a wave-
>Art of a child looking at the future.

Ok this will be difficult…imagine 50,000 airliner flights across the United States in one day. That is the peak of the day and so active they need traffic lights up there. In addition imagine all those flights crossing in from the troposphere to the stratosphere. Now these two are supposed to be separated by this barrier (#needawall) that keeps all of what we see in the skies separated from outer space called the tropopause.  The tropopause is supposed to keep them separated but because of all the air flights it is disrupted. The flights poke thru the tropopause like shooting a machine gun in a pool that is frozen over. It is probably the concentration of so many during the day a wave is created. It is similar to boiling water. This is a phenomenon never suggested. Mainly because there never has been so many flights in one day (and now every day). And the “wave” doesn’t just sit there. It moves west over the Pacific as the Earth rotates. Imagine this wave also popping up in other highly populated regions such as Europe,  Russia and the Middle East. These “waves” are messing up normal weather patterns and creating chaos. The current weather systems are reaching extremes in all directions. One day it hails in the desert the next it has mudslides all over California, etc. These airliners are mostly flying in the stratosphere, the jet stream and over the polar caps to save money. Now the jetstream is not a totally different story altogether. It is also impacted by too many airliners. Now many will say the jetliners are just like a boat flowing with the current.  In reality they are pushing back exhaust which slows down the jetstream behind them just like a motor boat going upstream it always pushes back even going down stream. And like all airliners the exhaust is 1,600 degrees hotter than the surrounding area. When that air is usually 30 degrees below zero; that is quite a difference. And the same thing is happening at the polar caps. Airliners taking a short cut to save fuel. You don’t put the chili in the fridge until it has cooled off; much less put it in the freezer. #stopallpolarcapflights

Now, I am not suggesting we stop all flights. Aircraft owners should work together and solve this problem. They are already billionaires. Perhaps there are stockowners trying to get some retirement savings, but, we are talking about the future of the world! So, maybe you save a little money on flying over the polar caps like a short cut. Or you fly with the Jetstream to save a little fuel. Or you fly from one side of the country to the other just to deliver a freaking pizza. Is any of that really necessary? We aren’t just talking about global warming. Though automobiles and factories also contribute. We are talking about chaotic weather and how we can actual control it. #savetheworld

Sophist at work

…the cost of freedom-

>Money where your mouth was?
A debate between two parties over the lying of an individual. Watching a debate like this is very difficult. With America being split by politics the hearing went back and forth and was very frustrating. If you are a Republican you say this person is a liar and you won’t believe anything he says. If you are a Democrat you really want to believe him even though he has already acknowledged he has lied to Congress. One questioner ranted on and on how much time and money was being wasted ($450,000,000) and how he spoke with his wife just before the hearing. He read that from notes which were obviously written ahead of time. It makes you wonder. His rant sounded like it was all about him. From his cancer to his daughter he then said no one should watch the event in which he was participating. Meanwhile the Democrats apologized and thanked the testifier for participating. They were not adamant about torturing the testified, but, were giving him a break like a child inquired for seeing something that their sibling had committed. A sophist knows there are at least two sides to every story. Some opt to take the higher bidder, some take the less fortunate and some just follow their party no matter what. If you had a “Jerkalerter” app on during this hearing it would have sounded like a duck farm. It seems the whole liar thing is based on an interrogation of someone trying to protect their client. Sort of like your parents broke the law and you tried to protect them. Yes, do anything to protect your family. That is until your parents call you out and degrade you just for their satisfaction. There is an agreement out there, maybe in fine print, that stipulates if your client screws you, then you are allowed to screw them back. Where money is involved it isn’t very smart for a multibillionaire to mishandle the lock to the safe. Do you shoot the only pilot on the plane. Do you think you are so great that you can land the plane yourself just because you saw it on television? You will probably crash. It’s funny one reaction was that `he lied about everything except the “Russian Collusion”. Meaning: he isn’t a complete liar.

Trust? Reely? Like casting out your lure and bringing in the catch of the day; you get pretty excited. Maybe just reeling it in is the sport.

Fake News Alert

Mr. Trump hugs the flag
>He does love the UN-United States.

News Alert, Trump changes to Democrat. Don’t say it is true. Can the president of the United States just drop one party and join another? This must be fake news. This changes everything. Does this mean the ‘witch hunt’ is over? Most of the Democrats have been waiting for this. They just didn’t think it would take so long. Now the swamp can be drained. The Democrats can get what they have been fighting for. They can fix all the health care issues like provide health care for those who can’t afford it. The list goes on. Border refugees can be reconnected with their children. They won’t be set free, but, they will get to live in a decent refugee camp until they are legal. The wall will be built, but, not all at once, but, soon enough. Radical or harm provoking groups such as the KKK and the NRA will no longer be granted permits for fight provoking rallies. The 1% will be required to pay 50% of their income and not cheat on their taxes once the IRS replaces their chief. The Democrats will no longer seek the impeachment of the president. They will wait until he is out of office before they send him to prison. Of which he will not serve time, but, will have an ankle bracelet to confine him to one of his golf courses. He will also have to pay a lot of back taxes and fines for cheating on his taxes. Now the United States of America can be “one again”. No more divided politicians and parties. No more divided families. No more divided races. With all this going on and everybody in the United States are all “one again” Mr. Trump should get the honor of the greatest person ever!

The Republicans have already got everything they wanted.

Friendly Reminder

Friend on life
>Remembering riding in the snow.

For what is a friend?

To be or not to be…

Most everybody seeks help or attention. Some pay with money, others pay with time. Friends pay with time. But it is mostly mutual. Friends take care of friends. They listen to each other. They help each other as much as they can. They are the perfect psychologist. Except psychologists can be fired. When you try to fire a friend, it can get ugly.
Friends, what are they good for? If you have kegerator you will have a lot of friends. If you adopt a highway, you lose a lot of friends. If you start getting on your friends’ nerves, they fire you. Even if they had performed priceless amounts of home improvements for ya.
There was once a joke about what is the difference between a friend and a fiend. That was sort of funny. But the real funny part was one could switch from one to the other in an instant.
The important ingredient in a friend is good advice. Though you must understand not all of it is good. Everything must be carefully analyzed. Once again race or gender does not significantly come into play. Except, the larger variety of information and help is best. Meaning maybe one psychologist is not enough, but a group of individuals will give a broader perspective.
Some friends are animals such as a cat or dog. They listen well and they don’t talk back, and they are cheap. Mostly all they require is food and water.
Of course, there are children. They can be the best teachers. But they force you to teach them. Not so good listeners, either.
That is an experience that some know nothing about. But, children can be all of those above and more. They do make you pay, but, c’est la golf. You made the shot. Whether it’s in the fairway or woods, you have deal with it. That is, if you play the game. Otherwise you sit and watch.
Then there are the loners. Those that do not have anyone. Even psychologists have psychologists. Poor loners. All they have is a mirror. Or maybe a moon to worship. Lying out among the moon and stars asking themselves questions and the only answers are in their head. The answers are not in drugs or alcohol. Though you may think the bartender is listening. In reality they have ear buds on and are totally ignoring all. If you are thinking of the “S” word, then forget about it. Join the Army or become a bodyguard. You can’t trump that.
The best of all are probably aunts and uncles. Uncles can give advice without thinking of themselves. And aunts always have the best advice.
People get married so they have a permanent friend. Who needs a shrink? If you can’t speak with your own spousal unit, then what do you do. You then pretend you are speaking to one of the many ears available. Skip the corn stalks. They have ears, but they don’t listen.
