Immaturity has us make a lot of poor choices because we want instant gratification without any thought to the long-term consequences. This has […]

Somehow this has to be your fault

Somehow This Has to be Your Fault When my brother was in college, he got hit by a car while riding his bike. Instead of inquiring about my brother’s well-being (as he was lying on the pavement), the lady who hit him said, “somehow this has to be your fault.” Behavior such as this comes […]

Blind spots

Our packrat brains

Our Packrat Brains Imagine a packrat’s room stacked full of old newspapers, boxes, and junk. The room isn’t useable because there’s so much unneeded and not useful stuff.

Christian pirates

Share this:

Christian Pirates I was talking with an Alaskan commercial fisherman today who described a group of other commercial fishermen as “Christian pirates”.
