     If the driving test for driving a spaceship ever includes parallel parking, count me out.  I’ll just bum rides across the galaxy.

     I sort of wonder if sheep ever look at people wearing sweaters and get pretty upset about what was taken from them.

     I’m fairly confident that they could manufacture a baseball that didn’t have seams, but it would just feel really weird and uncomfortable and would probably haunt your dreams or at least make pitching a little more difficult.

Profound Meditations

     People used to often talk proverbially about what you should do when you come to a fork in the road, but I sort of feel that hypothetical scenario has kind of lost its meaning with the advent of GPS and satellite maps.

     Every time I see a raven, I always hope that they’re grateful to Edgar Allan Poe for taking them from relative anonymity to relevant 19th century ornithological meme.

     There should be a routine that fans that go to sporting events employ called “The Windshield Wipers”, where two fans or more just extend their arms into the air and bend their bodies from side to side in the exact manner that windshield wipers do simultaneously.  I’m relatively certain that it will intimidate the opposing team straight into a downward spiral of losing.

     If they can make inflatable pools, it seems like they should be able to make inflatable bathtubs.  If they ever do, you’ll be thankful the next time you meet a long distance trail hiker who uses one.
