1. You must decide what the eighth deadly sin is, what is it?
Failure to use your turn signals in your car while changing lanes in traffic – there ought to be no absolution for this sin. Just a quick little flick of your wrist to tell your fellow travelers what your intentions are can be so helpful in keeping the traffic moving. I am on a bit of a rant here as I have noticed that as we have down off lockdown and started commuting, working outside of the house, and generally getting back on with our lives, people have seemed to gotten worse about driving and forgotten any semblance of basic driving etiquette.
2. You wake up tomorrow with Jeff Bezo’s current net worth ($209 billion USD) what do you do?
I’d put aside about $0 billion for me – that seems like more than enough. And there are about 8 or 9 billion people on the planet, so I would give everyone $1 billion dollars and focus the rest of the infrastructure and economic upgrades throughout Africa, South American, and the poorest part of Asia in order to get us all on somewhat of an equal sitting. And figure out a way to stop global climate change – makes more sense than just hoarding your dough and designing penis rockets.
3. I was recently watching “Fantasy Island” reruns on YouTube the other day and it go me thinking – what is the best television theme song?
The Rockford Files – that is a fine example of a theme song that just rocked.
4. What is something that should be free in society but isn’t?
Insulin. When Insulin was first developed it was given to the world as free open-source technology but then so asshole bought it, licensed it and it now costs upwards of $800 to $1,000 a month just to keep diabetics alive. It should be a crime.
5. What’s the most common thing stolen from your workplace.
Of the eight or nine folks who actually read this blog, I am probably the only one who goes into the office every day and thus has access to things to pilfer from the workplace. That being said we have this nifty soda machine in the break room (which doesn’t help with my Coke Zero addiction) but anyway – so on Fridays or so, I will take home a bunch of ice from the soda machine because my ice maker at home can’t keep up with us during the week. Maybe not the highest crime to take home a few big gulp sizes cups of ice but that is my crime.
