Avengers: Endgame: The Column

Now that Avengers: Endgame is finally almost here, we are bound to see plenty of pointless articles about the movie in order to draw in readers.

This is one of them. I will do whatever it takes to get more readers.

Whatever it takes.

I do, though, have several important comments and questions about the movie before it finally gets here and dominates the media and the box office.

A few words in support of procrastination

Too often people talk about procrastinating as if it’s a bad thing.

Sure, there are good aspects to finishing projects quickly, but there are also numerous positives related to delaying your work.

Often when I am supposed to be doing something like completing a work project, cleaning the living room or tying my shoes, I get interrupted by important thoughts that must be pondered. I see this as a positive example of prioritizing. Continue reading “A few words in support of procrastination”

How the Nick stole the time change

Every Who down in Whoville liked the time change a lot.
But the Nick who lived in Ohio certainly did not!

The Nick hated the time change! The whole time change season.
Now please don’t ask why! No one knows exactly the reason.

It could be perhaps, that his clocks wound too tight,
It could just be that he never adjusted them right.

Is that the Nick was a person who wanted to sleep.

I often marvel at the outstanding quality of names of different items. When you think about a nose, printer or teeter-totter, for example, those names seem to fit perfectly.

Modern technology is amazing, wonderful, and sometimes stupid

While going through a drive-thru with my son recently, we discovered the restaurant is now encouraging customers to place their orders through the apps on their phones and then pick up their food at the drive-thru.

Now this may sound like nifty new technology, but I don’t think it would actually save you any time or make the process any easier. All you had to do before was talk into a giant menu and they got the food ready for you quickly while you waited in the drive-thru. It was simple and fast.

By ordering through the app on your phone, you have to open the app, hope your phone doesn’t freeze, scroll through to put in your order, type in words that will be autocorrected to the wrong words and then still wait in the same drive-thru line to pick up your order. How is this an improvement? Continue reading “Modern technology is amazing, wonderful, and sometimes stupid”
