Project 313 – Post No. 273

While striving for perfection, I’m more than willing to admit to mistakes . . . as can be seen HERE.

As humans, I firmly believe we can only grow if willing to admit to our mistakes and strive to learn from them. Unfortunately, I see the majority of the people heading the other way. If When they say something stupid, rather than admit it, they double down and add to the stupidity. When they are caught in a mistake, they shift blame to someone or something else. When they don’t know something, they lie rather than admitting it. 

. . . and people wonder why I’m not impressed with humans . . . so much potential squandered . . . 

And now, the photo:

Gee . . . this would have been a perfect photo a few months back. I mean, what better way to celebrate November than with a reminder of October?

We subscribed to newspapers for years and years. 

Some lament the demise of many newspapers but let me tell you something . . . it’s their own fault. They say readership dropped because of the Internet and because the news could be found online. I don’t think so. Long before the Internet, we noticed less and less value in the subscriptions. The papers themselves change to the point that many would end up unread and piling up in the recycling corner.

To this day, I don’t subscribe to any paper (actual paper or digital paper). I don’t because the information industry is now divided into a few monopolies and I see very little independent thought, let alone research. Basically, long ago media outlets lost my respect because of either obvious bias or slanted stories. Lest people surmise I’m swimming in the conspiracy tank, you should know something . . . I research what I read and I only have to be lied to once to stop trusting a media outlet. At this point . . . well, pretty much, I trust very little I read unless I can get to the original source. And, when I do, I invariably find the story has either been misrepresented or is factually in error. 

It’s a sad time for our country. We have a mix of uninformed readers willing to swallow whatever pablum is fed them by their favorite media source . . . it’s an unhealthy mix and nothing good will come of it. 

Today, a special treat . . . The Don’t Mess With an Angry Fish Citrus Edition.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
