Staying In Touch
Posted in Random Thoughts
First dog watch, 1 bell (4:42 pm)

We live in a wonderful age. It amazes me how accessible things are today. If I want to read a book, I can buy it and read it on my Kindle in under a minute or two. If I have a question, the Internet has an answer. Well, it has several answers, and most of them are junk, but you get my meaning.

This year is my 20th high school reunion. I moved to Idaho for the last year and a half of high school, but was invited to attend a reunion in Hood River OR, where I originally went to school. Nobody in Idaho ever contacted me about a 20th here, and I wouldn't go if they did, but that's beside the point. So I set about trying to find some of the few friends I had back then with whom I haven't been in contact in the last two decades.

I was successful, and better than I had hoped, but it lead me to think about how connected we are today, and how much easier it is to stay in touch with people than it ever has been before. With social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and the new Google Plus you can't hardly stay away from people unless you never join in the first place.

Twenty years ago, I might send a letter if I had your address, or call on your birthday if I had your number and remembered your birthday. Today with email and text, tweets, wall-posting, or stream-sharing such a contact takes moments, and can be done whilst waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store.

These truly are amazing times in which we live.

You Got That Right
Posted in Strangeness
First dog watch, 3 bells (5:45 pm)

I received a strange email the other day. I get lots of email, but this one stood way, way out from the rest, as you'll notice. Cutting out some of the extraneous information, here is what it looked like:

This will be one of the stranger E-mails you will ever receive...

When I first saw this, I was hesitant to believe. Fortunately I read on and discovered just how right he was.

Two years ago, I realized that I was being bi-annually abducted by aliens – yes, real aliens. I requested to be flown off of Earth, but failed to get a ride off of Earth due to political, legal, treaty, and war-related reasons.

Ooooooooooookay.

I am currently employed by Saurians. I also do freelance work for some Greys. As well as some mammaloids (the inspiration for Earth-based “furries”).

Everything is weirder when furries are involved.

You haven’t the faintest clue what dinosaurs look like. I have attached a photograph of a Saurian that I found on the internet on a UFO web-site. I illustrated a corrected image with feathers.

Finally, I can sleep better at night knowing what dinosaurs really looked like.

That must suck when the 4G comes out and you need brain surgery to get an upgrade
