According to one legend:

If you had been a good boy or girl in your last life,
then this time ’round you’d a been born with a billfold that instead of a picture of Doris Day would have had the secret of life in it.

93031- 3

93031- 5

One nice day, a man asked his mind:

“Would you now like to join me in: singing the praises of the illustrious who have gone before us?”

“Why the hell would I want to do THAT?!”

93031- 6

Having limited minds will not stop men from telling you everything they know.

Everything from nothing leaves everything.          (Under these conditions.)

And from our, Sports Allegory Desk:

Life is like a stock car race —

but how did so many civilians get into the pit area,

where you can get drunk, and throw-up, and take off your halter top,
in the midst of so much noise and turmoil that your present employer will never notice, or mention it back at work on Monday.

And,      “That’s all” from our, “Sports Allegory Desk” for now.


The pseudo-sharp look for metaphors — de sharp, are one.

93031 -12

If you live under the dominating intellectual influence of the collective,

you have few choices regarding what you can do with your tongue and lips.

Basically: You can either speak the words of others, or keep quiet.


It is not possible for one who can think to be impressed by anyone else’s thoughts.

…Point-of-order: Just what do you mean by the word, “impressed”? –
…Point-of-reply: What do you THINK I mean?


The weak push around the world — the strong, themselves.

The insightful-write brief aphorisms —

Routine artists,

Searching for freedom and originality, and not knowing where to find them, will then settle for just being offensive.

Like a set of steak knives,

or the notion of “thinking for yourself,”

you’ll usually do much better if you make it sound like they’ll be better off buying it, and doing it.


A man who’ll tell you how he’s suffered — ain’t through suffering.

93031 -25

Those with no talent can’t dance, and thus push for social-values and family-reunions.

when you’re an alert, unique, independent-thinker — you don’t realize it!


ONE man was SO-0-0 totally “dumb” that even HE was impressed!


Once you see that all of that which makes and holds man together as a singularity is the exemplar and summation of such concepts as fragility and vulnerability. Then you can come to realize that such notions are specious, and known only to man —

— an aftermath of the Big Bang that occurred in his mind.


Harsh fact from our, “Harsh Fact” Desk:

Yes sir, this is exactly what happened, all right –and YOU’D better be darn-glad that it did!


People who can’t think good like to get in bunches.


A Theory:

If you make fun of normalcy too many times — you’ll be sorry.

                (This IS  “just a theory.”)


In his bedroom,

One man could see what appeared to be prehistoric sea creatures raising up their heads from within his carpet —- And yes, it was a deep-pile carpet.

Another stimulating item from our, “Sometimes the News Makes Me Dizzy” Desk.


In the civilized world, the main thing an expert does is talk — How civilized is your world?


One man notes:

“One neat thing about even being just ordinary ‘weird’ is that

a lot of those clowns out there will automatically take it to mean more than it does.”

“If you stand on the side-lines, you can jeer better.”
And the boy asked: “Did you say jeer, or cheer?”
“What the hell difference does it make?!” he replied.

And now a word from our sponsor, Life.


Hormones have no word for, “sacred” — yet they live it.

Neurons have no knowledge of it — so they invented the word.


Secret motto of several of our more popular past centuries:

Whenever he was trying to “think about” something,
and would run into a dead-end in his thinking,
this one man would then start to think about the “thing” as a metaphor;
after he had become quite good at this — and the same situation would arise–
he then began to think about his “THINKING-about-it” as a metaphor’       …and then:

Great God A’mighty!…  Don’t take me to the bridge…      I’ll build my own!

And now back to Scottie at the Sports Desk.

One day,

In this one solar system,

Their sun suddenly turned a back flip,

and immediately after that

all of their Holy Scriptures became Joke Books,

and all of their erstwhile humor became Metaphysical Law.

Only cows, sheep, men, and other docile herd animals can BE imprisoned.


From our, “Free-Electron, Neurosis” Desk comes this item:

Throughout history — jesters and comedians have spoken of themselves QUITE well.


From our, Equal Time Desk:

If such statements as this have any effect on you then you deserve to be infected.

If you think — you dance;

And if you think as life “turned you out” — you dance with strangers.


If you’re serious, you’re old          —           WAY-Y-Y too old!


A man who can think can read genes like a microfilm run backwards.


Even if we agreed that it is literally, physically, and spatially impossible
for a man to totally,  independently,  “think for himself,”
that still would not obliterate the fact that some do.

— Don’t you just love-e-e news like this?
