Generousity

So I went to get some food after work at 1am and two machines declined my debit, and an ATM said cannot access account… and I know for a fact I had plenty of money to get a $4.80 chili.

However, one really nice guy was there after me waiting very patiently as I tried 4 times to pay, with no luck. I was about to hand back the food and leave when he said “How much is it?” and then paid for me. I was really hungry for something good and I can’t thank him enough for doing that for me 🙂

There are still good people in the world, I am gonna buy the person after me at Starbucks their coffee to pass it on tomorrow 🙂

I apologize severely to anyone who looks at my blog for the shortage of posts. I just no realised that the worthless and shitty Android WordPress app doesn’t post anything! But says it does! I have a few DOZEN BLOG POSTS in “Local Drafts” that I can’t even post now because the phone says “403 error.” Fuck this fucking app I am never using WordPress on my phone again period.

Car Companies Don’t Care About Safety….

One thing I have found very interesting is how car companies are choosing to prioritize what features should be in their cars. For example, Hyundai. They target the family market in many of their cars (many, not all) however one thing that is odd is that most all of their cars have either A- An advanced stereo system or B- An entire touch console on the dash but you know what some of each of these models don’t have standard? Basic safety implementations like side air bags. True, it is not very common in the cars, but it is not considered a standard feature to them, while having a good stereo in the car IS. If your target demographic is the family, then your top priority without question should be safety: Heck, any car safety should be thought of well before how audio sounds. How about more advanced features though? Even these are often over looked in favour of either cutting cost or other features. What about blind spot detection systems? These are potentially life saving creations but are far from being in every car. That is something simple as well! We have a Ford Focus and it has a very easy to implement, yet shockingly smart and simple feature, that is a convex mirror in the corner of the rear-view mirrors that are specifically directed in the spot where your blind spot is. After driving the car I personally can say that the simple $10 little glass mirror does in fact eliminate the blind spot, however our truck, which also has a secondary mirror on the side, is not actually a wide enough range to see the blind spot! It is gut basic for a company to install and can save thousands of dollars, and peoples lives but is it standard in cars like seatbelts are..? No? Well then shouldn’t it be?..

As always, I welcome your guys’ thoughts 🙂

The Tattered Thread

So, first, I realize that it’s been far too long since I wrote anything.  The reasons for this are various and have absolutely nothing to do with the book in the subject line.  The book I just finished is merely an excuse to write something and provide this bit of drivel as a preface.  There has been much tumult and annoyance in my life since the last post that you couldn’t care less about but suffice to say that I have learned to live by the wise credo that to live a life fully one need merely pay attention, state one’s opinion clearly and concisely and honestly and then detach from whatever outcome may result.  It is no man’s task to fix the world.  Do your part and then move on, I say.  And with that monstrously opaque preamble out-of-the-way, we move on to the topic at hand.

I read this book…
