Unhappy people, things I don't know, a butt plug fidget spinner (because), the return of pubic hair, and more on this weeks episode.


Everyone is so angry now-a-days - don't believe me? When the light turns green, don't take off right away and see what happens.

People are impatient, angry, and scared
People today bite the hand that feeds them
And others bite the hand that bleeds

You can tell a lot about a person by how they treat any living creature that depends on them (children, puppies, small animals). I mean, how can anyone mistreat something that is basically defenseless against you?

Think about this:

If you ask a group of people or even a single individual to come up with a list of ways to torture someone, they will come up with a giant list. Even if you narrowed it down and asked them to make a list of ways to use needles to torture someone, you would still get long list. 

But, if you asked that same group or individual to come up with a list of ways to help people — the list would be extremely short.

There are two reasons for this.

1. We are angry, impatient, and scared and are always waiting to lash out

2. It's so much easier to hurt someone than to help someone

Helping people is difficult, hurting someone is extremely easy

I don't have a way to fix this — because that would be helping and that's hard. But I can say, please think about others beside yourself. Be cool and groovy to each other - even when you disagree.

I don't want us all to agree or have the same values and beliefs, I want every to accept the fact people are different and have different values and beliefs. And as long as those are oppressing or hurting others - be cool and GROOVY with it.

I’m at the beach and a plane flies by with a giant trailing banner advertising a certain insurance company with a lizard. Has anyone ever been at the beach, sun, heat, vacation, fun, then suddenly look up and think - damn, I need me some car insurance? No. No one ever.
