Nobody Flashes: Titanic and Havana

Nobody Flashes

I just saw this. While I prefer the ending that was in the movie, because it was more realistic to her character, I’m glad he took the time to video this one.

Titanic was a great movie. And the emphasis on “class” and the expectations of young girls to marry to help out their families are still going on today. At least in the upper ‘elite’ classes.

And here’s the ONLY thing I have in common with Obama: I like this song, and I love the way Pentatonic does it.

Enjoy. And if you are like me, I try to imagine Havana BEFORE the Cuban revolution. It must have been a paradise.

Nobody Flashes Stress Relievers: Stars and Elephants

Nobody Flashes

Does anybody else want to get away from the nasty and depressive news? I do. I was so keyed up tonight, I ALMOST brought a Gargoyle online. I decided against that, and opted instead to get out of the house, and just walk.

When I’m stressed, two thing usually put my mind back into perspective: The vastness of the universe (Which proves how insignificant most everything is on this planet.) and the sweet, sweet  innocence of babies.

Any babies. And THIS baby is one of my favorites. He brings his joy right back into my needy spirit, bless his heart.

Enjoy!

Getting Old…Means Not Having to Say You’re Sorry

Nobody’s Wins

I’m in a very cantankerous mood lately, due to the fact that soon, I’m having another birthday, and I’m just not aging gracefully. And I WANT to. But, I just can’t damn it. I realize that death is an unknowable equation…and I’m lucky to have lived this long…considering all the close calls I’ve had working at night in downtown St. Louis.

After all, so many people die young. And they didn’t even get to realize how precious life is…that knowledge usually doesn’t come until you realized you don’t have many years left…Old

For instance…all the babies that die young.  Nothing in life is more heartbreaking than losing a child. Whether it’s a baby, or a man who lost his life in war…I can’t imagine the pain of the parents, and they could never put it into words. And here I am..still living.

Not fair.

And so, when I think of these things I get …in a bad mood. An angry mood. And I get even angrier when I think that right after I write this and post it, some NSA computer is going to store it in some little computer chip for…probably some company to send me ads…for all eternity.

(Want to live longer? Try Metamucil…Use SEA SALT!)

Which brings me to the subject tonight of the fight in the news between Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck it seems has sucked up to Zuckerface. Ever since Glenn Beck lost his following when he started condemning people for not voting for Ted Cruz, he’s been losing it, and Alex Jones thinks he’s part devil.

It’s been pretty amusing. After all, what do I care? But I do care. Our ‘heroes’ are pretty stupid nowadays.  When the biggest ‘hero’ on the block is Mark Zuckerberg, you’ve got a problem.

And here’s one thing nobody talks about. When you get old, and you see young men like Mark Zuckerberg, being so rich and famous, and so full of…shit..it just pisses you off.

I must admit, I’ve gotten my opinion about Zuckerberg from the movie The Social Network. Jesse Eisenberg did an excellent job portraying the boy as a spoil, rich, and insufferable snob.

When he invented “FACEBOOK” it was clear, that he took (stole) an idea, and did everything he could to make it his alone.

Ruthlessness is the name of the game to be a success it seems.Zuckerberg 2

So, why is Facebook so popular? People want to connect..and show the world who they are. It’s a simple concept and trust me, it didn’t take a genius to think of it.

I probably am one of the only people who compares Facebook with any other invention. It’s not that big of a deal….the propaganda about it is.

You don’t have to be on FACEBOOK to live a life. FACEBOOK has not made my life, easier, but is has made the FBI pretty happy.

It’s not like the invention of the automobile or the airplane. It’s just another web invention.

And really…how can a man who is a genius be so STUPID when it comes to everything else?

His politics are “get into bed with every government so your product makes you MORE rich!”  

What I’m trying to say is the older I get, the more I see how history is always the same: Some men float to the top of the heap, and more times than not, the man that should rise to the top, NEVER does.

Animals in the wild eat their own…so…does…man.

So, I’m not having a happy time getting old. I keep reading all these snazzy articles in magazines about how it’s all how you look at life that matters.old two

BULL.

My doctor says my life is written in my DNA. No use in fighting it. As you can guess, I don’t get along with my doctor very well, but because of Obamacare I’m lucky to even HAVE a doctor, so I’m stuck.

Frankly, I want him to lie. Yes. Lie.Oprah Windfrey

So, I have to celebrate something on my birthday…and I’ve decided the one thing I have to be thankful for, is that Oprah Winfrey has retired too. I don’t have to see her when I’m changing the channels on every talk show. Thank you Oprah, for the wonderful birthday present.

Watch…tomorrow I’ll see her on the Glenn Beck program.

Pass the salt.

I’ve learned…. That  just one person saying to me, ‘You’ve made my  day!’ makes my day.I’ve learned…. That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

                    goofy with.

I’ve learned…. That  sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold  and a heart to understand.

I’ve learned…. That  simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child

                          did wonders for me as an adult.

I’ve learned…. That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

I’ve learned…. That money doesn’t buy class.

I’ve learned…. That it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.animal five

I’ve learned… That under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

                          hurt you.

Get Up OFF of THAT THING…Because God Tells You To— Idiot.

Nobody Cares

Wow. I HAVE been in a funk lately. This week I tore a hole in Rush Limbaugh, Obama, Glenn Beck, and let’s not forget the Pope. Okay. You could blame it on the weather. It’s been flooding here, and I have not been able to swim FOR A WHOLE WEEK! Doesn’t God realized that I wait the whole winter just for the moment when I can go swimming in his glorious sunshine? WTF is it with all this rain?

Is Moscow controlling our weather?

Okay. I can’t complain about God. While I wish understandably that I would win the Powerball so that I could buy my OWN pool, heated, ever ready, God always just sends me what he thinks I need. For instance….One Christmas I really needed exactly $1500.00. Part of that would go to Christmas presents for my son, part of it for medical expenses. And sure enough, God came through. While trying to get on the highway one day, one of those massive tractor trucks came zooming around the corner at about 50 MPH, and I was NOT about to get in front of that baby, so I stopped.

The lady behind me who was accelerating to get on the highway, ran right into the back of me. I’m sorry…I had to pick the lesser of the two evils…death by a 50-ton truck, or a fender bender. But hey! As I told her, “Last time I looked, in Missouri, if someone hits you from behind it’s THEIR fault.” (You can imagine how she reacted to that statement)

I love it. The damage to my car was so minor, I didn’t even fix it. BUT…her insurance paid me a nice check of…you guessed it EXACTLY $1500.00.crazy

Thank you God.

And you all know I sometimes get carried away with my own gloom. I blame this on my mother, who woke up every single morning...depressed about the world. Talk about the cup half empty…to my mother there WAS no cup. She was pouring acid water filled with the dead souls of a million dead bumper baby regrets down a black hole, every single day.  I’m surprised I even survived my childhood. To be fair, it wasn’t her fault. She had genetically inherited this gloom from her ancestors…and passed it on to me, and I’ve given it to my son.

Truly, it wasn’t our fault.

It’s a good think John and John Quincy had good jobs, THEIR sons did not even find a cup to climb into. And in that respect, I’ve been lucky. God has always thrown me a line.

I was getting so down after this last incident in Charleston, that I just had to get out today. So I put on my windbreaker, my worst tennis shoes, and sloshed through the rain. I had been trying to figure out how to get myself out of this funk, and then I read in a book that you must soar above yourself and see what’s ticks you off…to recognizes your ‘push’ buttons…

Hey—have you listened to the news lately? OMG. Give me a cup to THROW at somebodies head! My buttons are pushed out. Do NOT reset them.

But…God came through just in time today: For some damn reason, on the bookshelf at my local library was a P.J. O’Rourke book: One dollar. What a bargain. And reading upon this, as I stood dripping from the rain… I came to this passage:

Consider it a God moment—if you please…humor me.

Let us, for the space of this book, quit worrying and go take a look at what we are worrying about. And let us take a look not only at the worry but at the place where the worry is happening, the context within which the worry occurs, and the people who are doing the worrisome thing or having done it to them. And let us keep in mind about these people that, whatever their language, culture, or religion, whatever peculiar thing they are wearing through their nose, whatever caliber item they have pointed at our head, they are people , too. They are just as dumb, stinky, and ridiculous as we are.

And worry itself is fairly pointless. Worrying is a futuristic matter. About that future, Sydney Smith said almost two centuries ago, “We know nothing of tomorrow: our business is to be good and happy today.” To worry is an act of sublime ignorance. However, we can guess a few truths on the subject. One is that the usual solutions proffered for the usual worries are usually wrong.

I love it when God talks to me. Combine this with the movie I just watched about James Brown, and he is downright being the God he always turns out to be. He gives me just what I need, when I need it.

And so, picture if you can…ME. Dancing and singing..”Get up off of that thing, Dance and you’ll feel better.”

And I did. And I DO! Maybe God wants me to make this a morning ritual. (Ya think?)

God bless James Brown, P.J.O’Rourke, and whatever power in the universe who keeps…filling my cup up when I just run out of gas.

Tell me he doesn’t exist, and I’ll show you WHY you should never mess with a hummingbird.

Enjoy!

Nobody Remembers John Gorrie

Nobody Remembers

Not many people know that the guy who invented air conditioning, was…robbed of his fortune. You can bet your last greatest idea, that this still happens every single day. The inventor gets basically…robbed. It’s just that robbing the little guy, never gets talked about much. John Gorrie

But those who have more power, and money are very good at it.

It was John Gorrie who invented the air conditioner.

Dr. John Gorrie was a Florida physician who was looking for a way to make his patients suffering from yellow fever and malaria more comfortable. It was the 1840’s and it before they knew that mosquitoes were the cause, so most doctors figured it was caused by ‘bad air.”

The doctor thought if he could just cool the air, they would all feel better.

In the Apalachicola Commercial Advertiser he wrote this:

If the air were highly compressed, it would heat up by the energy of compression. If this compressed air were run through metal pipes cooled with water, and if this air cooled to the water temperature was expanded down to atmospheric pressure again, very low temperatures could be obtained, even low enough to freeze water in pans in a refrigerator box.”

This was before electricity, but he figured it could be powered by steam or water.Frederic Tudor

Gorrie patented his ice making and air cooling device in 1851, but his main financial backer died that year. He couldn’t find another investor, and it was mainly because his invention was being ridiculed in the press.

Who did he blame this bad press on? Frederic Tudor, the Ice King, who had made his fortune shipping insulated natural ice to warm climates.

Gurrie died destitute in 1855, and it would be another fifty years before Willis Haviland Carrier would use Gurrie basic principles and get another patent.

There another blog here, (and lots more Nobody Opinions) but it’s too nice outside! I want to enjoy it before I have to turn on the air.
