Isn’t it Ironic?

I was trying to come up with a topic for today and although several came to mind, none of them really inspired me to write more than a couple of sentences. This will be the first of many “and anything else I want to talk about blogs.” There is so much irony is this world, it is quite incredible. For instance why isn’t the word Phonetic spelled how it sounds?? “Who would’ve thought… it figures” (thank you Alanis Morisette). Now I am sure you are thinking that the whole theme of this blog post would be on irony…but remember what I said about only being able to write a couple of sentences…yeah writers block. It is happening now.

These are my random ponderings:
(Random is my word for the day….pretty sure I’ve already over-used it and it is only noon)

Ironman or Batman
Boxers or Briefs
T-Rex or Spinosaurus
Beach or Mountains
Rock or Country
Cats or Dogs
Laugh or Cry
Paleo or Primal
Black or White
Whiskey or Coconut Water (you may not understand that one unless you know me)
This or That
Swim or Run
Fantasy or Reality
Hot or Cold
Little or Big
Fast or Slow
Loud or Quiet
Soft or Hard
Stop or Go
Do or Do Not (there is no try!)
Bacon or ….hmmm Bacon

Yes, they came to me in that order…kind of like free association…Freud anyone?

Did you KNOW??
“Almost” is the longest commonly used word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order.

While you sleep, your body produces a hormone that may prevent you from acting out your dreams, leaving you virtually paralyzed (think about your dreams, now think about this again….whew!).

Apparently in 2008, Japanese researchers successfully developed a technology that can put thoughts on a screen (think visual image replay) and researchers at Berkeley did it in 2011! That got me thinking about what people might see on a screen if I were hooked up to this machine. YIKES! I’m not sure anyone should have this power, scientific or not…which leads me to Telepathy or telepathically direct transference of thought from one person (sender or agent) to another (receiver or percipient)without using the usual sensory channels of communication, hence a form of extrasensory perception (ESP). Thank you Encyclopedia Britannica for that information…you remember when you used to have to look up things in an actual encyclopedia?? Telepathy, FACT OR FICTION? Take it or leave it. That is all.
