Random Thoughts

Life is interesting. I will always be amazed with life no matter how old I get. Life holds so many questions one hardly even figures out all the questions let alone all the answers. The more answers you get the more questions you have. Of course this has never stopped us from trying to get the answers. In fact many peoples lives revolve around getting answers one way or another.

Even worse are the questions of the universe and existence itself. It's hard enough trying to figure out the questions of our life and our planet but add in the question of Life, the Universe, and Everything it starts to get a little too big. Still that doesn't seem to stop people from trying either, even myself.

Being that there are so many questions one may ask why not just forget about it. No one could possibly hope to answer all the questions. Why not blissfully turn the cold shoulder and just live life without asking questions? You might as well try not to breath. Asking questions is part of what makes us sentient. People need to ask questions, if not to figure out the whole picture, then to maybe figure out their little part of the great big vast universe. To better understand their immediate surroundings.

By understanding ourselves and our surroundings, however small they may be compared to all that is out there, we have come to where we are today. We have learned to adapt to our surroundings and even grasp what was before beyond our reach. It does seem pretty much impossible to know everything about life and the universe. But by focusing on single subjects of interest people have throughout the ages made breakthroughs in those areas. From such things as electricity to aerodynamics and computers to cars. None of this would be here if we hadn't asked those questions of why the world works and worked together to answer them.

Questions I want answers to

  1. Why do we have sneakers with lights in them?
  2. Why do we have scented toilet paper?
  3. Why do we have handicapped parking in front of the skate center?
  4. Why do we call it politics when the Latin the word Poli means many, and a tic is a blood sucking creature?
  5. Why do we hate violent video games but violent news is ok?
  6. Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?
  7. Why is man who invests all your money called a broker?
  8. Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
  9. If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
  10. Why do so many people think happiness depends on the pushing around of little green pieces of paper?
  11. Why does my cat purr when he's biting me?
