Yesterday I spent an hour calculating when I'd die if I were like my dad. Little did I know that I could have gone to 7is7.com and gotten the correct answer in 10 seconds or less. The internet is horrible. Today I've been given 154 fewer days to live!
See the title above the picture? CLICK ON IT. It'll take you to the Countdown clock I discovered today. Now I know how someone feels who's just been told they have less time to live. I took it pretty well. I've decided to waste less time than planned.
Oh well. Even Barack Obama has problems.
THOSE TIGHT-FISTED MORMONS
On my way to learning about the Countdown Clock widget, I also learned that the Mormons are pretty stingy when it comes to helping others out. This is odd, because they boast of great generosity whenever there's a camera or microphone present.
Let me show you an example. Tomorrow. I want to recheck my figures, so I don't have to retract anything. Don't miss it.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
If you learned you had five months less to live, how would you compensate? As for me, I'll stop watching radical You Tube videos. You know, the ones that show Nicholas Cage in Wicker Man. (A movie representing US government involvement in the World Trade Center demolition, and subsequent Martial law, round-ups and final Christian genocide. Cage represents the American people.) Who needs that kind of foresight, anyway? Too depressing!
Instead I'll limit my mental intake to talented musicians, poignant speeches and proven sources of worthwhile offerings. This single daily change will give me much more than just 5 months back over the next 23 years, I'm sure.
My wife just woke up. Gotta run.
Hope your New Year is going well so far.
See ya soon.
