7 Quick Links & Thinks September 15, 2015Posted by nrhatch in Blogging, Humor, Joke.
Without fanfare, folderol, fuss or ado, 7 Quick Links & Thinks for you:
1. Fraudulent Truths
People often delude themselves.
When a “message” counters their deeply held “fraudulent truths,” they choose to ignore it.
Instead of re-evaluating the facts, they toss the messenger into the closest closet, slam the door, and ditch the key!
There are none so blind as those who will not see.

2. Living The Good Life
Contrary to popular belief, you do NOT need a yacht to live the good life. All you need is a friend with a yacht!

When a photo of dad scrolls up on the screensaver I say, “Hi, dad!”
Just in case he’s listening from beyond the Twilight Zone.
I’m not alone.
Kate ~> I Said “Hi” to My Brother (Did That Just Happen)
4. The Twilight Zone ~> Conversing with Customer Service
“Your call is important to us . . . but not enough to let you talk to anyone who can help you.”
Kate Crimmons ~> In Recovery or Notes from the Loony Bin.
In an amusing post on Glasses, BunKaryudo noted:
“Yet despite their shortcomings, both remain extremely confident in their opinions about everything.”
Bun’s observation immediately brought Donald Trump (and Rush Limbaugh) to mind.
That, of course, got me thinking about the blind leading the blind.
Let’s hope only a few near-sighted voters like Mr. Magoo end up voting for that yahoo.
6. Forest Gump, Part Deux
For a lesson in learning to flow with life, like Mr. Magoo, check out The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared:
Allan Karlsson caps off his long and colorful life by escaping from his nursing home on his 100th birthday. In short order, he comes into a possession of a suitcase stuffed with cash. With his new friend Julius, Allan decides to take it on the lam.
The movie reminded me of Forest Gump with flashbacks revealing the flow of life. A “dark” comedy, but fun.
Don’s post, HOPE ~> Life is what happens as we “go with the flow.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
