Science At Its Best... Trav Thunks About Stuff

*** Warning***
Any similarities to yourself or real people that you may previously, currently or futurely (new word) know are completely accidental. Either that or you are incredibly, infinitely slow and this blog post is about you.

***Second Warning***
Yes, I use the words Thunk and Futurely.

Is it just me or is this world littered with people just sitting around waiting for evolution to knock them off? It’s enough in real life to deal with people hovering close to the bottom of the evolutionary model but to endure them on here just makes me cringe.

Trav! What are you talking about. Dunno... I just know the last few days I have been thinking back over the last year and I realized how many idiots we are all surrounded by. Oh I know, all you “open minded” people on here that love to get politically correct on me are gonna shit (see yesterdays post) but lets do this in a scientific manner. I just wonder if you have ever thought of this before.

Think of all the people you know. NO! Even better, start with your family. If we are honest we know that 1/4th of our family tree was somehow spared “survival of the fittest.” Come on, admit it, you know it’s true. That group of family members you look at and think to yourself “I wonder how many times they have almost drowned in the shower?”

Ya know you got ‘em. The family members that take an hour to make Minute Rice at family reunions? Now think of all the people you know that aren’t family. I would be willing to bet 1/4th of the people you know in your personal and professional walk are in a race against time when it comes to outrunning the Acme Anvil of Life.

You know who I am talking about. If your are a politically correct junkie you are sitting there and silently admonishing me. If you are like me you are laughing too hard because you are making your own mental list of life’s beautiful idiocy in the form of men and women you either know or come in contact with daily. Oh I could spout off tons of examples but for space I won’t. You know who I am talking about. Idiocy is rampant. There is no shortage of it that is for sure.

So if we have agreed this is semi-scientific in nature and 1/4th of our family somehow got lucky and survived when they got beat on by the family tree and 1/4th of the people we know in our personal and professional life are barely outrunning the evolutionary process (perhaps because they bought those really expensive shoes rather than pay that 4 month late bill) I am sort of scared. Why? Because, if your 1/4th and my 1/4th are the same, then that means that damn near 1/4th of society is barely outrunning mother nature. Think about it.

If this holds true and we have semi-scientifically proved it without millions in government spending, then 1/4th of the airline pilots fit the bill. Yup, spin that around in your noggin for a second. When you hop on that plane, 1 out of 4 pilots are running on evolutionary fumes just like the idiot in front of you at the store that for the life of him can’t figure out why his credit card doesn’t work. Ya know, the one that keeps saying stuff like “I have no idea why this is happening. It just makes no sense.” Yea dumbass, you didn’t pay the bill wants to spill from your mouth but heaven forbid we actually let them know how close to the evolutionary abyss they truly are. 1 out of 4 drivers on the road are accidents waiting to happen. This translates into every aspect of our lives. 1/4th of the doctors? Scarey eh?

I was at a mall a few weeks ago to buy some Armani Gio cologne (gotta love good old fashioned product placement) and had the pleasure of riding an escalator from the second floor to the bottom floor. It was a long way down and there were a ton of people on this escalator. I was about 1/4th of the way down when suddenly the escalator just stopped. It just stopped going. So here I was, 1/4th of the way up a busy escalator and it decided to stop working. And guess what the people on the escalator did. They just stood there. They didn’t even move. I waited probably a minute and laughed silently at the idiocy displayed around me. Finally I got aggravated so I yelled “WALK!” You should have seen this realization dawn on the eyes of the people. DUH! It was like I had just parted the Red Sea and they now had an escape route.


Evolution, waiting to happen all around us, how cool is that?

By the way, Bulge is back, again, for now, once more. Check out Hair today, gone tomorrow

You probably have one of the most fascinating minds I've run across here, not to mention a truly intelligent sense of humor. Yours is the first blog I've read here and I very much enjoyed it. I will confess, however, I haven't read it all, but the most recent posts were great. I'll look forward to reading more as time goes on.

Thank you my Texan Beauty for stopping by and saying hi! I love it when fellow Texans get involved. Thank you as well for the great compliments. Don't say them too often though because I might start believing them.

So much to say on this.

First, if you met my Hubby's family, there is no 1/4...nope...we are talking 100% dumbasses. Somehow Hubby escaped the gene pool. Thank God! However, in my family, yes, I can agree with the 1/4...maybe a bit more. It amazes me how they are able to reproduce. That is the problem. If they could not reproduce, the madness would end. I am sure I will get heat from that, but I don't give a shit. LOL

As for your rant about some people pulling your Mo Mo piece, that is total shit Trav! I am so tired of these tree hugging, white flag waving, let them hang the Mexican flag over the US flag and then fly ours under it up side down in CA, gutless, I have no suggestions on making things better, open armed love and except all, come have our country that MY forefather's died for, candy asses! Oh yeah, I am really pissed off too!

BTW~ did you read Bardicman's post yesterday?

One more is GREAT to have you back Baby! Kisses

travelingintexas replies on 5/6/2006 8:22 pm:
Bard has a blog?

I had no idea...

i do believe you are being too circumspect - 25% seems low to me but then i have a large family tree with many a withered branch.

being, dare i say it, a democrat.....pauses to duck the bullets, i must agree with your post about Moussaoui. seems as i age, i get less forgiving and more tired of people protecting the rights of those who spend their lives pissing on the rights of others.

ask me sometime what i think about the rights of pedophiles - grits teeeth and continues reading

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

travelingintexas replies on 5/5/2006 11:15 pm:

You are safe here as a Democrat. Ive never torn down anyone from another party here in my blogs and I say in THAT particular blog, that was the first time I have mentioned politics.

Freedom of Speech I love and adore, regardless of side. Its the supression and shouting of BS I cant stand.

Acme Anvil of Life... omg! .... and at 1/4, I truly believe you were being kind...

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

travelingintexas replies on 5/7/2006 9:09 pm:
Well... I am a conservative... LMAO

So I made the numbers lower...

    Quoting travelingintexas:
    OK Folks... I am pissed... No I am beyond pissed... I am righteously angry... I had another blog post up after this about Moussaoui...Guess what... some pansy ass, freedom of speech as long as it is their speech fucker canned my post. Twice. Not the normal "please redo your post" message. I am talking completely gone. People commented on it and they yanked it for good. Twice.


    Now I am mad. Whoever you are, this site, someone that ruled it should be completely pulled or some fucktard that requested review.... bite my fat, celluite cratered white ass...

    I read some of the most disrespectful and slandorous bullshit aimed at our Commander in Chief and I keep my mouth shut. I read your bullshit about Boycotting Exxon (But I'd bet my 401(k) that your 401(k) has Exxon in it somewhere.) Who is the profiteer now? Do I say anything, fight, debate or get whiney? Not until today.

    But let me write about a fucking terroist, and I get yanked? Weak... You people, whoever you are, are fucking weak.

    Some of you pasty face "open minded" politically correct white flag waving wusses cant handle my position and you deny me my right to free speech in defense of Mr "Life in prison Moo Moo can say he won and he wants to K*I*L*L* us all"? You would defend that cocksucker?

    Bite me.... and get the hell off my blog...

Trav ...

I am with you 100% on this. I remember that post, and I commented on it! That's bullshit! I too have seen other bloggers, Americans and non-Americans, malign our country, malign our citizens and malign our government leaders. I have had my fill of one particular left-wing, communist, anti-American vitriolic "lady" from South Africa, and I laid into her good after one of her typical anti-American rants on Saint's blog the other day. Well, I am tired of these limp-wristed, naive, open-minded, politically correct, white flag waving, elitists telling me how I'm suppose to think! They can just kiss my RED, WHITE and BLUE ass! Sorry your post got deleted. I would really know the outcome on this, and I will join you and thousands on this site to make a big stink about it. If they delete your post, then they better delete every Bush-bashing, Big Oil-bashing, Dick Cheney-bashing post on this site!
