The Watering Hole; Thursday March 31 2016; Different Worlds

“To see a world in a grain of sand
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.”
(William Blake, from Auguries of Innocence)

I’m tired of politics, tired of the world in which it lives, tired of its occupants. Thankfully, that’s not the only choice available to those of us who flame out when surrounded by nuts, screwballs, and all the crazy ideas those wackos regularly come up with and spread around as if they have meaning. There’s that other world, the one ‘out there’ where humans don’t typically hang out. It’s the world of color, of peace, harmony, tolerance, and survival, the world inhabited by millions of critters but NO POLITICIANS! There is no stupidity out there, no vitriol, no irrational hatred, and best of all, NO RELIGION! It’s pretty close to the ideal world, truth be known.

Below is a demo of contrast, the ‘sound’ of critters from the political world intermingled with close-up views of critters in that other world, the better one. The contrast is, in a word, STUNNING!

Lord, to account who dares thee call,

Else why, within so thick a wall,
Enclose so poor a treasure?
(Robert Burns)

Amen, Amen.

  1. I’ll take the critters over the nutjobs every single day of the week.
    Doomsday predictions of liburl perdition!. What a plethora of paranoid putrification.

    • I find it fascinating that turtles, bugs, rabbits, and Honkers each and all have more personality and more brains than (a) any Republican running for Pres., and (b) any Republican I’ve ever met. Wonder why that is? Did god screw up, maybe?😯

    • A neuroscientist explains why artificially intelligent robots will never have consciousness like humans

      When I first ran across that one, it struck me that Drumpf is a freakin’ ROBOT! But then I said no, no way, not possible. A robot could never be that damn stupid, and it would NEVER have hair like that. Conclusion: Drumpf is a stupid shit with really bad hair. Period.

      Here’s a far better description, one that perfectly describes Drumpf’s level of stupid:

      “You see, if you’re very, very stupid, how can you possibly realize that you’re very, very stupid? You’d have to be relatively intelligent to realize how stupid you are.” ~John Cleese; January 2015

      • I think the sentiments expressed by Cher in The Witches of Eastwick fit Donald very well:

    • Trying to show the contrast between brainy critters and Republicans. I could have chosen a brilliant Repub instead of Gomer, but couldn’t think of any to fit that bill.

  2. I like the flower pics. Today the air started smelling like spring for the first time, with the warming air enhancing the light scent. I wish it would continue like this (despite the pollen) but it’s going to turn cooler for a spell, with a couple of possibilities of snow showers–waaah!
