I'm really dry for any good ideas as of late so instead of a story here's some random stuff I've been thinking about today.
I really don't understand the appeal of football. I've tried to get into it quite a few times but it just bores the heck out of me. The same thing goes for pretty much any televised sports. Everyone talks about football and baseball at work and I totally can't relate. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
Sometimes I'll wake up randomly in the middle of the night. Not a big deal, but thats when my brain likes to try and scare the Hell out of me. Usually I'll see a large spider or nasty looking bug on the wall or on my bedside table but a few nights ago I woke up and saw this thin white form floating by my bed. It freaked the fuck out of me. I have no idea why my brain insists on doing this. Maybe if I tried watching televised football, it'd stop.
The story of Noah's ark, which I've been hearing/reading about since I was a little kid, makes no sense at all. This thought just randomly came to me today. There's no way he'd be able to get two of every single animal on earth into a ship he made himself along with enough food to feed them all. Just the idea of it is ridiculous. Noah would have to be like Santa Claus and go around the entire world collecting every single mammal, bird, lizard, and insect. I don't think it mentions a flying sleigh in the bible though. Plus how are these animals going to repopulate the earth? By massively inbreeding apparently of course! Hey, if you follow that logic, then the idea that the entire human population started from two people doesn't make much sense either does it? There, I said it: The Bible makes no freakin' sense if you take it literally.
Oh and anyone that tries to tell me that God is kind and loving hasn't read the Old Testament at all. God is a jerk that likes to fuck around with humanity just because he can. He's just as bad, if not worse than the Greek gods.
I have no idea why Christianity has been bugging me so bad latley, thats just the direction a large portion of my thoughts have been going.
Alright, none of these thoughts are interesting or original or deep in any way so I'll shut the fuck up and go to bed. Sorry for not having a story up. The goal of this thing was to try and write something at least once a day, but I've tried to make it a story of some sort each time. It's hard to stay motivated sometimes unless I force myself.
Although I might just post up one of these things once a week since I like hearing from you guys. My readership is small but you're a smart bunch of people and I don't have enough smart people to talk to.
Alright, give me a scorecard so far. Whats been the best and worst story I've put up for this project? Any ideas on how I could improve? I know some of these have been weak and I apologize. It's hard coming up with something interesting every day.
I'll end with a Bill Hicks quote, because I love Bill Hicks: “The worst kind of non-smokers are the ones that come up to you and cough. That's pretty fucking cruel isn't it? Do you go up to cripples and dance too?”
