Five Things I Know and Five Things I Wish I Didn't Know

Thursday, March 03, 2011
  1. It takes me three minutes longer to shower if I use shower gel instead of plain old soap.
  2. If I eat oatmeal for breakfast at 7:00, I will not be hungry until 11:30. There are very few things more filling than oatmeal for breakfast
  3. I get more work done on Wednesday than I do on any other day of the week.
  4. If I clear the snow from the bottom to top rather than side to side, I get done 10 minutes sooner.
  5. Fifty five goldfish crackers are one hundred and forty calories.
  1. Whaling has not been a necessary industry since the 19th century. Most countries that still engage in the mass slaughter of cetaceans do so for cultural reasons1. Along with this, most people who eat at any seafood chain do not give a damn about a sustainable ocean.
  2. I live in a country in which the rich get richer, the middle class is being crowded out and the poor get poorer. Somehow, the rich have convinced twenty five percent of the population to protest on their behalf.
  3. I know that even if we could find the food to feed the world, some evil rat bastard would steal it.
  4. It is far easier to go with the flow than to swim against the current. It's easier to hide in your tribe than to accept another. It's easier to justify than to change. It's easier to say it's someone else's problem and most people do.
  5. Truth is a precious commodity, but we all tarnish it with little white lies. Some don't even try to tell the truth anymore. Lies are infinitely more powerful and seductive than doing the right thing.
1.) Most indigenous tribes I give the benefit of the doubt on this, since they tend to be harvesting in very small numbers for their use only.

  1. Well, the first few things you listed are...interesting that you know them. The last five are just sad. True, but sad.
