People! Let's wash those hands!

Unless you’re a small child, you know that not washing your hands is like carrying around your own personal petri dish. You’re essentially saying, “I’m ok with personally transporting the cornucopia of bacteria, littering every square inch of the public cesspool known as a bathroom, all over the place.”

Pack your bags, germs!

Religion & Veganism

There sure seems to be a lot of messed up stuff happening in the world right now. It’s fair to wonder if there's more or less than there's been in the past.

Maybe if social media existed 200 years ago it would seem worse back then? If the media wasn’t so happy to stoke the fires of fear by over sensationalizing the seemingly never-ending series of calamities, maybe it wouldn’t seem as bad as it does now?

Then again, does the media shape behavior or does the media simply supply the demand? After all, would the Kardashians be what they are if people weren’t willing to consume that mindless garbage?

It's a bit deeper than that.

Feeling Guilty

It’s been almost a month since my last post. Over the last year or so I’ve managed to be pretty consistent with my writing but this is the longest I’ve gone without producing something.

Truth is I’ve been pretty busy at work. Aside from a week-long trip, it’s been a pretty hectic schedule overall. Add in family commitments and it’s a sobering reminder at how fast time slips through our fingers.

Here comes the guilt.....

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

The next level of change is here.

Smoke, mirrors and the art of debate

I just read a great article from the Boston Globe. It’s a short piece, written about a November ballot question concerning animal rights. Specifically, this ballot question covers cage free chickens and provides that any farm animal be given the ability to live in pens large enough that they can turn around and spread their limbs.

Who could possibly be against this?

The answer shouldn't be much of a surprise.
