No matter how bad a Monday morning may make one feel we should be grateful. There is always somebody out there who at that present moment will be experiencing something more dreadful than just the Monday blues.
So it must be for the poor souls who had to deal with Hurricane Sandy as it spun its way through the Caribbean and the east coast of America.
People will have been waking up for the last few days with no homes, no possessions, and in some dreadful cases no loved ones.
A lot of people will say it’s a sign of global warming that it’s all man kinds fault, he started it. Balderdash, the planet has been warming up and freezing down since it was first formed billions of years ago as small dust particles clumped together by the force of gravity.
Don’t get me wrong, our actions are helping to speed things up when it comes to global warming, but nature if given enough time will adapt, will survive. This is the scary bit, a lot of creatures will not be able to adapt in time and will go extinct.
We as humans shouldn’t be so smug. It took thirty thousand years from when our species first started to stand up before they then discovered fire. It took another twenty thousand years from the first fire until we discovered how to farm the land. It took ten thousand years to get from basic farming to the present.
Sixty thousand years it took humanity to adapt to the mildly changing climates of this period. This time we aren’t even going to get five hundred years, it could be fifty at best!
The first age of this planet was the age of water when only sea living creatures survived on this barren planet. The next age was dominated by the reptiles as the dinosaur’s ruled, and the third age was the age of the mammal in which humans came to rule the world.
I wonder if in sixty thousand years’ time there will be a forth age, the age of the invertebrates?
The Scorpions ruling over the hardworking ants living of their labour, while the spiders ponder how unfair it all is as they weave intricate webs of deceit! Now that could make an interesting story?
Anyway, here are some interesting questions to lighten the day.
Why can superman stop a bullet with his chest, but always has to duck when someone throws the gun at him?
Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?
Why if work is so terrific do you have to be paid to do it?
Why don’t cannibals eat clowns? (Because they taste funny.)
Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?
Why don’t they just make mouse-flavoured cat food?
Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?
Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
Why do we wash bath towels? Aren’t we clean when we use them?
Why do we wait until the pig is dead to cure it.
