Ignorance Outshines Wisdom

‚ÄúI don‚Äôt suppose there ever was a time when everybody knew as little about what they were talking about as they do today.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Will Rogers, 19 September 1933 How does ignorance come to outshine wisdom? Of course, that is not true for all of us but the percentages seem to be drifting in that direction as our recent elections showed us. The religions of … Continue reading Ignorance Outshines Wisdom

I’m Taking Life More Personally Now…

With my brain trauma event, I seem to be taking life more personally now.  After some deep reflections, I have decided that what might happen twenty years from now should not be on my radar screen. Even ten years is questionable as I will likely not be around even then. Why should I fret over a time when I won’t even exist, especially since I … Continue reading I’m Taking Life More Personally Now…

Inside the Loony Bin Beltway – So. So.

¬† I have to admit here that I am disengaging from the beltway loony bin more and more as each day passes. ¬†The cable news outlets are now erased from my satellite¬†lists. I now get my network news totally from the PBS Newshour and the Sunday Fareed Sakara program. Yeah, I know he is on cable news but he is really different! ¬†He simply says … Continue reading Inside the Loony Bin Beltway – So. So.

Aspie Trait #4 – We Just Don’t Understand Body Language.

¬† Understanding body language, things like facial expressions and tone of voice are important for social interactions. But many of us Aspies are just not very good at those type things. ¬†To us, it is a strange and mysterious thing so we often tend to misinterpret what is actually being communicated. Without recognizing these things our response to some conversations seems inappropriate. We generally take … Continue reading Aspie Trait #4 – We Just Don’t Understand Body Language.

Inside The Loony Bin – Get Over It..

The title above seems to always be said¬†by the winner in most circumstances, particularly the political ones. ¬†But of course, the opposite usually happens. The losers fixate on the loss and how it happened. They concentrate on revenge going forward and little else matters to them. Of course, that usually accomplishes nothing. Instead of revenge they should look to the future for opportunities to¬†accomplish¬†things that … Continue reading Inside The Loony Bin – Get Over It..

Aspie Trait #3 – We Are Good Writers But Not Good Speakers..

¬† This week’s Aspie trait is one that is powerful for me. I have always been a good writer. In high school and college, I almost effortlessly got A’s in all my composition classes. Writing just came easily for me.

Inside The Loony Bin – What About Truth?

This week’s Loony Bin report is about truth. To me, the very foundations of a person is that he speaks the truth. One who regularly lies is simply not to be trusted in any regard. Without truth, there is no meaning to much of life’s interactions. I don’t think I am unusual in this regard, but given the recent presidential election, I am questioning that … Continue reading Inside The Loony Bin – What About Truth?

A.B.C.D vs Q.I.U.T.G

Some people live their lives one way and some another. Some think that for today they need to do A.B.C.D and then tomorrow repeat that sequence and continuing to do that the rest of their days. And then there are others who think that for today they need to do W.Q.E.T.Y and then tomorrow H.P.I.Y and avoiding as many repeats as possible. I don‚Äôt know … Continue reading A.B.C.D vs Q.I.U.T.G

Aspie Trait #2 – We are honest to a fault

¬† ¬†We Aspies are usually brutally honest and speak our mind. Our allegiance is to the truth, not people‚Äôs feelings. Most people learn not to tell the truth all the time. Sometimes white lies need to be said so as not to hurt friends‚Äô feelings. But white lies just seem¬†immoral or at least illogical to many of us Aspies. Of course, being brutally honest is … Continue reading Aspie Trait #2 – We are honest to a fault
