Imagine There’s No Heaven

I am an Atheist and I don't believe in Heaven. This means no second chances, no rewards, no reunions with previously deceased loved ones, and no eternal life beyond this mortal coil.

Who’s Awesome? You’re Awesome.

It occurs to me that all it takes to be awesome is to believe you are. The rest is all just hype and perception. It doesn't matter if anyone else believes it, as long as you do.

I Don’t See It

Legal Blindness is defined as “…visual acuity (vision) of 20/200 (6/60) or less in the better eye with best correction possible.” Although this certainly conveys that the person affected may have limited visual perception and perhaps even qualify for some sort of government assistance based on that fact, it does not factually mean that the condition has been licensed in some fashion.

TV Nazis

On my way home today I passed a sign that read “Drive Safely” and I thought to myself, “How sad that we need such a sign to remind people not to be reckless.” Then I thought, “What if we don’t? What if that sign wasn’t needed at all? What if people were already driving safely without any encouragement from some preaching, roadside slogan with raging billboard envy?”

Beggars Be Choosin’

You know what bothers me? It’s the fact that beggars can’t be choosers. It seems to me that everyone should get a choice, even the homeless.
