Hey, if you missed the big party yesterday for DGS 200, check that out. Meanwhile, let’s get through this day. Are you ready? Let’s go!
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the sea, a captain and his crew were in danger of being boarded by a pirate ship. As the crew became frantic, the captain bellowed to his First Mate, “Bring me my red shirt!”
The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain’s red shirt, the captain put on and led the crew to battle the pirate ship. Although some casualties occurred among the crew, the pirates were repelled.
Later that day, the lookout screamed that there were two pirate vessels about to attack. The crew cowered in fear, but the captain, calm as ever, bellowed, “Bring me my red shirt!” And once again the battle was on. This time, the Captain and his crew repelled both pirate ships, although this time more casualties occurred.
Weary from the battles, the men sat around on deck that night recounting the day’s occurrences when an ensign looked to the Captain and asked, “Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before the battles?”
The Captain, giving the ensign a look that only a captain can give, exhorted, “If I am wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show the wound, and thus, you men will continue to fight unafraid.” The men sat in silence marveling at the courage of such a man.
As dawn came the next morning, the lookout screamed more pirate ships were approaching, 10 of them, all ready to attack. The men became silent and looked to the Captain, their leader, for his usual command. The Captain, calm as ever, bellowed,
“Bring me my brown pants!”
By now, you’ve probably heard about this, but, our government is back in action. The shutdown is over. Or at least, I would hope so. As I’m typing this, it’s not quite official. We’ll see.
We already knew that Oreo’s are own by a company that also makes cigarettes, among other addictive things things. And so, it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that you could actually be addicted to Oreo’s:
Oreos are as addictive as cocaine, at least for lab rats, and just like us, they like the creamy center best. Eating the sugary treats activates more neurons in the brain’s “pleasure center” than drugs such as cocaine, the team at Connecticut College found.
Yup. Okay, so the article doesn’t make the connection I made but still.
Tha-tha-tha-that’s all folks! (Porky Pig; not making fun of anybody in real life, people. Geez)
