Scott Adams (the creator of Dilbert) is on a good rant these days. Here’s some excerpts from this latest blogs:
It’s called a “concept car” because that sounds better than “something we pulled out of our ass and hope to someday shove up yours.”
So we’re designed as hunters. Unfortunately, we are very, very slow hunters.
Have you tried to outrun an animal lately? Those fuckers are fast. And I’m not talking about cheetahs and rabbits. I couldn’t catch a motivated woodchuck. I suppose I could catch a panda. But I’d have to run to China to do it. And I could probably catch a turtle, although it wouldn’t help much unless I brought my turtle opener.
Some of my favorite jokes involve people who got killed a long time ago:
“Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?”
“Easter is the day we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead, seeing his shadow and forecasting six more weeks of winter.”
The “killing” part of those jokes doesn’t seem so bad now because a lot of time has gone by. I’ll still burn in Hell for comparing Jesus to a groundhog, but that’s an entirely different issue.
