I thought we were supposed to have sun...oh, wait, that's :LATER (got it).
The rest of the Hoosierland weather will see us with a slight warm-up into the mid-70s today (kinda like yesterday(), and an isolated shower perhaps sometime late this afternoon (kinda like yesterday), and a partly-cloudy rest of the day (kinda like yesterday).
Hmm...detecting a "pattern" here, albeit a pleasant one.
In any event, let's go grab a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever else you find comforting as we set about seeing what's been going on.
*** First out of the kitchen today is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense."
Now THERE is something Washington D.C. could use...in ABUNDANCE these days, hmm?
So, WHO said that?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the oratory hall...
*** Okay, so what do you think would be the outcome of a motorcyclist excessively speeding along State Blvd and popping a wheelie would be?
|That's NOT a grease fire at KFC...|
Amazing how the LACK of something like...I dunno...COMMON SENSE can lead to tragedy, isn't it?
Still, shouldn't be THAT much of a surprise, given the nature of mankind these days.
|Can't be a dumbass any longer, right?|
Moving on (and not doing wheelies)...
*** Next up, what happens at a manufacturing plant when you run out of parts to assemble?
Well, you CANCEL the shifts involved for one thing, JUST like they did at the Fort Wayne GM truck plant.
Here's the story link
FOUR shifts have been cancelled due to "lack of parts".
As if GM doesn't have ENOUGH problems, hmm?
Whatever happened to making SURE you have a surplus of items to keep workers WORKING, anyway?
Someone at that plant doesn't deserve their "managership", especially in the INVENTORY department.
But the good news, is that the workers WILL have to "make up" the lost productivity, thank the unions.
How much you want to bet that the parts suppliers are FOREIGN???
(hope they're not ignition switches...lol)
Another lapse of common sense here?
*** Next, we can't end this post without SOME crime going on, as evidenced in THIS story:
Christopher Javon Sewell, 26, of the 5100 block of Lillie St (not too far from the "Fortress") is the perp-in-question, who OBVIOUSLY lacked any common sense by not only becoming a gang member of a local cadre (PAC), but also getting involved with some serious crap, along with two OTHER losers (Adonis Robinson, 24, and Demanuel Tompkins, 27), who will, in all likelihood get their charges "amended" thanks to plea deals.
If I didn't know better, I'd suspect the Allen County prosecutor's office was short a few fries in THEIR common-sense "Happy Meal".
(maybe I DO know better...heh)
*** Last back to the fire-pit today...looks like COMMON SENSE is becoming a lost art, much like cursive writing, or many other aspects of American society, and why IS that?
|THAT is the God's honest TRUTH, too.|
I've known people with engineering degrees that had trouble putting in a new light switch, and why was that?
They lacked common sense.
I will say that when everything else fails, a little common sense can (and will) get you through a multitude of problems. But there is always the "easy" way out, too...
|Never settle for THIS...|
Maybe it SHOULD become a part of the educational system...some sort of "formal" learning experience regarding common sense.
But wait, doesn't LIFE experiences teach you about that?
Well, if you're paying attention AS you go through life it does, unless you've hit the "cruise-control" button and are meandering from year to year.
|Well, there's some common sense.|
All we have to do is look, right?
And the way we're brought up will provide us with what we need to PERMIT common sense a part of our makeup.It's really not that :"painful".
Those that don't have that provided for them...well, they're the ones in court, in jail or already dead (through stupidity), if not up to their eyes in problems they can't seem to find a solution for, aren't they?
But, common sense already told YOU that much, didn't it?
Stay SAFE out there, America.
