So How Long Does It Take For a New Species To Develop?

Would you believe 2 generations? I was somewhat surprised too when I read this.

Now this surely wasn’t a case of slow evoultion by natural selection. It was a hybrdization event that did happen in the blink of an evolutionary eye though. Very interesting.

Oops!

I had a brain fart today, just wanted to share. Drove by a sign waving in the wind. I read it as “Live Natively”…

For a full second there I was like, how the hell does one live natively? Then it hit me.  It is that time of year I suppose for live nativities. My brain farts happen more often than I’d like to admit.  🙂

 

C’mon Guys. We Have to Do Better Than This.

I’m sure everyone with a television has heard about the moronic maroon in Alabama. Now it’s (Noooo!) Al Franken. Then there was all the hoo ha at Faux News. And we have the Trumpish pussy grabbing Trump, and the list just goes on and on and on.

It appears we just can’t help ourselves. By we, I mean guys in general not me personally. Though there was this one time I did tell a lady I did not know that she was pretty, I immediately saw that it made her uncomfortable, and I still feel bad about that. I have (mostly) always strived to be gentlemanly towards the opposite sex, and almost always prefer to be the quiet guy in the room (there is a lot to learn from that perspective). Now that does not mean I haven’t had my encounters with the opposite sex. You know why?

Because if they are interested they will let you know! Ok? I know from experience you don’t have to be the guy that can talk any woman out of her good sensibilities in 20 minutes or less (my brother is a fine example.) You don’t have to be a big Billy Bad Ass, you don’t have to be flamboyant and loud, you don’t have to be the super jock, and  you sure don’t need to be somebody that thinks they are Mr. Bigshit just because of wealth and fame or whatever it is that makes someone think they are Mr. Bigshit… to gain the attentions of the opposite sex. And Mr. Bigshit, you sure as hell do not have special freedoms to maul, molest, harass, or otherwise misbehave in general towards women because of your perceived status! Let’s just be ourselves, and keep our hands to ourselves, and stop being jerks. Alright? If a woman is interested in you, she will let you know. Until then be a gentleman goddammit!

Now for the umpteenth time, ladies, I apologize for the behavior of my gender. We aren’t all this bad I swear.

All of you jackasses, and you know who you are, go to your room, think about what I have said, and do not come out until you have some understanding of it! Next time I won’t be as nice. (Is there no one out there to have this talk with their sons?)

Impeach The Bastard!

Let me begin by saying I have never been so damn busy in all my days. I have let the blog go slack, have neglected my friends blogs, but life can do that to you sometimes 🙂 But I will make time for this, if you have not seen it already, or heard about it, there is a large petition sponsored by Tom Steyer (a bloody billionaire, a real one, unlike tRump) that has already accumulated more than 1.6 million names. I just added my name to the list. I hope you will too.

It is fast, easy, painless, and a course of action any level headed individual would feel good about taking part in. Interested? Go here:

The work I have been involved in will play out before long I think, then I might get back to my old posting self. Till then I miss you guys and gals and think of you often.
