The Plan

1In the beginning was the plan. 2And then came the assumptions. 3And the assumptions were without form. 4And the plan was completely without substance. 5And darkness was upon the face of the workers.

6And they spake amongst themselves, saying “It is a crock of shit and it stinketh!” 7And the workers went to the planners and sayeth “It is a pile of dung and none may abide the odor thereof!” 8And the planners went to the supervisors and sayeth unto them “It is a container of excrement and it is very strong such that none may abide by it!” 9And the supervisors went to the managers saying “It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide its strength!” 10And the managers went to the directors and sayeth “It promoteth growth and it is very powerful!” 11And the Vice-President went to the President and sayeth unto him “This powerful new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of the department!”

12And the President looked upon the plan and saw that it was good.

13And the plan became policy.

Here endeth the lesson!

      The key takeaway for me, seeing how old that bit of text is, is that people have always been pretty fucking stupid. I think what drives me to the brink these days is the gap between how important it is to not be stupid and the reality of how far too many approach life.

      I mean Pokemon Go… are you fucking kidding me? Grown people do this? In public?

    Laughing about the Pokeman . . . my kids do it, but only with their little kids. Society often dumbfounds me – lately especially . . . easily led and even more easily distracted . . .

      Well, sure, with kids. (Although there are some important security issues to be aware of regarding access to your Google account.)

      That’s my point, though. The mindless, childish shit that seems the bulk of what adults do with their choice time. I’m fine with mindless, some mindless time is important (although too many don’t seem to be mindful enough to really need it), but I’m not big on childish stuff, and I’m really not big on that’s about all too many people do.

      Watch a science video once in a while, read a substantial book, learn a little about how some things work. All this great info for free and all people seem to want is the mindless stuff?

      ARG! !
