A winner’s stepping stone: A lesson from cross country

“The master has failed more times than the student has tried.” – Stephen Craine I’ve come to observe that failure is not the opposite of success. Yes, it can contradict success at times. Such as failing to get the girl you flirted with; or losing a big match. Failure is not the opposite of success,Continue reading “A winner’s stepping stone: A lesson from cross country”

Going Plus Altru… istic: Assessing animal consciousness and altruism

Is a cat ethnocentricOr egocentricBecause it doesn’t understand the dog? How about a human? I wanted to start this blog with a poem I wrote about an observation and thought. To link two thoughts together like a ball tethered to a pole, I wanted to play with the idea of assessing altruism and post humanism (theContinue reading “Going Plus Altru… istic: Assessing animal consciousness and altruism”

I have holes in my skull, but I’ve not been shot at

It is not from recently listening to the episode, but thinking about it, I talk about Part 2 of the America vs. Canada Face off episode. The episode opens with discussion about how difficult it is to get into the Army. Our co-host Dawn talks about such difficulties by illustrating that by taking any formContinue reading “I have holes in my skull, but I’ve not been shot at”

Looking At Perspective: An assessment of egocentricity, ethnocentricity, and altruism

I’ve found myself wanting to define these terms, but I consider it rather difficult to find something that makes this topic not come off as a dry piece of prose. I’ll attempt to stay on my toes to ensure I’m keeping my readers entertained enough to continue reading. These terms are fun for me becauseContinue reading “Looking At Perspective: An assessment of egocentricity, ethnocentricity, and altruism”

Heretics die young: a Catholic falling for the devises of life

I was raised as a Catholic. I was never sexually molested as an altar boy, but I do know it is a repetitious motif seen in the Catholic Church, among other dark spotlights illuminating the horrific past that has been attributed to it. It was for those moments I denounced my Catholicism. Furthermore, it intriguesContinue reading “Heretics die young: a Catholic falling for the devises of life”

Bridging the gap between the male and female brain and body

So… I don’t really know how to begin this… there are so many rhetorical approaches to come in with, so I decided to choose this one. I think it’s the best start to transition into the catalyst of this article (is that what a blog story is called? Blog paper? Blog blog?). Anyway, this allContinue reading “Bridging the gap between the male and female brain and body”

“Observation creates reality”: Assessing a cat, a splash of Einstein, an arrow, and a seemingly sensing photon

As I listen to our podcast to find quotes to make some kind of meme out of, I stumbled across an interesting topic Rob, Tina, and I were covering. It was a discussion about perception and if perception creates reality (I oversimplify), and I dribbled out a perspective about Schrödinger’s Cat. I wanted to shareContinue reading ““Observation creates reality”: Assessing a cat, a splash of Einstein, an arrow, and a seemingly sensing photon”

Rhythm and Poetry: Assessing the semantics of profanity (ha I spelled ass)

I think my topics often come off super fucken heavy, and I realize that this makes my blog tone somewhat pretentious; especially with the vocabulary that I use. It truly is difficult to illustrate a complex thought with non-complex words… if my thoughts could even be perceived as complex (they are in my perspective). SoContinue reading “Rhythm and Poetry: Assessing the semantics of profanity (ha I spelled ass)”

Virtue Signaling: assessing euphemisms and dysphemisms

“Netflix and Chill” implies and alludes to more than hanging out while watching an episode of Black Mirror. Such implications make it safe to label “Netflix and Chill” as a euphemism of “have sex.” Growing up, I’ve heard a lot of things labeled as a euphemism; and with some kind of Freudian undertone, the onesContinue reading “Virtue Signaling: assessing euphemisms and dysphemisms”
