OMFG An Epiphany!

I love Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. If you've never heard of him or them, stop now and check them out. They're hilarious. Once you're done reading and hilariousing, come back to this post...OK, I was reading through a bunch of Deep Thoughts recently and came across this one:

"As you make your way through this hectic world of ours, set aside a few minutes each day. At the end of the year, you'll have a couple of days saved up."

Funny for sure and impossible of course, but is it really? If I set aside a few minutes each day and do nothing, then of course I will not have saved up any days at the end of the year, however if I do something, then at the end of the year it's possible that I will have completed that task, in effect freeing up the sum amount of few minutes per day...which could be a couple of days at the end of the year. The provisos though are:

  • You must do something.
  • It must be a task that can be carved up into small chunks.

Finding such a task is easy. For example, if you'd already intended to learn the guitar, or a new language, or grow a garden, or write a program in PHP, or write a novel, and you were budgeting time out of your precious year this year to do that, then taking a few moments from each day could indeed save up up a couple of days or more at the end of the year.

My mind is blown. (OK, but not as much as before I started writing this out.)

They're made out of meat

I think the short-story is really poised to make a comeback as the preferred art form, what with the limited attention span of young people these days, mostly thanks to portable technology that begins with the letter 'i".

I recently found this little gem that I really enjoyed: They're made out of meat
