Comments on Commenting #2

Expanding Our Horizons

Please to allow me to remind you that comments supply an abundance of extra useful information to the writer that can improve their outlook, expand their communication skills, provide new friends, exchange ideas, and ultimately helps to improve the quality as well as the quantity that Bloggers can come to enjoy.  And that improves the content that you read!  Too many times I have seen blogs, good ones, fall by the wayside because none of their efforts are appreciated or even acknowledged.  I’m going to show you examples today, of how light can be brought into dark lives this way!

Many of us are left poor, with very few alternatives but to sit around all day watching commercials on TV all day about people going on cruise trips, buying expensive cars and a very many luxury items, like simple skin care products that those without means simply cannot afford!  It is rubbed into our faces on a daily bases.  So if you believe being poor in a rich country is a walk in the park, sometimes we actually have to live and sleep there!  Being poor in a rich country is one of the worst kinds of poor you can encounter, because you stick out like a soar thumb!  Others think of you as uneducated, greasy, germ carrying, criminal ingrates, to be avoided and ignored at all costs!  You are quite literally shunned from the rest of society!  You are stripped of all dignity and self esteem.  And forget about a career because you simply can’t afford one.  Even a simple Photography course costs $8,000!  Where am I gonna get $8,000?   They’re not gonna let you in because you say you like Photography and read books ya know.  You have to earn it!

Instead of brick walls, we can set up plans in which the doors can be opened to all those willing to succeed at what they love to do, just like everybody else with the finance to do it!  This example can be viewed world wide making the eradication of poverty a very real possibility!  Hey!  You’re the ones who don’t want the low I.Q.’s, disease and serial killings, suicide, prostitution, drug and alcohol abuse, pacts with the Devil etc…  This last paragraph comes from a comment I made BTW!  Armed with a larger, better workforce that actually collaborates with one another, we could actually go on to solve all the worlds problems, which crooked politicians have no intention of ever doing!  Once more we could take pride in our work instead of just filling in time to get a pay cheque…  Below is a comment from a single mother struggling to survive.  From her words, you will find that deep down, she’s very much like you:

I give you Mingtea

‘God has done wondrous things in my life and for those around me whom i love too. All things are through him only and without him there is nothing. I admire you Darrell for your mercy and forgiveness, you never torment or intimidate anyone and your always welcoming to a friend weather they feel happy or feel down, even when you may not feel well yourself. I see that shining through you a lot. you are a blessing to my life and to those who know you. i pray for you and about you in every pray i say. may Gods blessings shine down upon you and touch your life in a wonderful and deserving way.’

Notice how she speaks of God given qualities because God is the refuge for the poor, and His promise to us, our only hope!  She may speak very well of me, is kind and loving, yes.  Yet there are days when she is so down and distressed, and there are lots of them, most especially around the second half of the month when funds have run out!  I have cried out to God and prayed for her many times, that God will hear my prayers and remove her constant suffering and bring some ray of light into her life; something with deep meaning and constancy!  Something that would open up some kind of financial security for her, that she may be needed and have some kind of purpose in life!  And here is a post from Mingtea when she feels down:

‘my life is over now as far as men are concerned im old poor disabled nobdy will ever want to be with me now. i am no longer pretty im just a worn out wash rag and am treated as such. theres no man for me ever again in my future there just isnt a good man left certainly not in this shithole town. most men here lost their license dont work are alcoholics or drug abusers or they cling to their mamma like a week old baby . makes me sick i was married 3 times and still had to do all the money earning doctors appointment s laundry cooking school visits clean th e house pay the bills put the garbage out shovell the snow mow the lawn. one of these assholes even still complains that he had to pay support even tho his kids are 25 and 27 and he hasnt helped them get a license and hasnt givien them 5 cents to help them out when they are broke they come to mamma. one way its good that no man on earth will ever be with me i dont havae to shave my legs or arms pits. dam i dont even have to take a shower whats the point i only have dirty laundry anyway no money for weeks now for the laundrymat. theres no hope left for me im no longer pretty and no longer work. im done like melted icecream stuck to the bowl after thanksgiving dinner. im equal to the shit left in the sink of dirty dishes. even my kids treat me like shit since i dont work and give them stuff anymore. i was a good person and great mom my whole life for nothing.they only care about right now and give me no credit for my years of sacrifice anda labor i did for them. if they have nothing today they blame me. there is no such thing as free will . God doesnt exist its all a bullshit story like santa clause. i was a loyal wife and devoted mother for nothing. nobody cares about my happiness but plenty of ppl enjoy making me suffer especially your old buddy the madman. hes a women abuser and picks on the weak and defencesless. i dont want to be around you becuase you always say your done with him then your old lady lets him in anyway for whats in his pockets and YOU prolly make him coffee. thats called 2 faced. if he shows his ugly face at my door im slamming it on him no matter what is in his pockets.he cant buy my kidness now hes done too much damage to my family and continues to. i hope he moves away and takes your old lady with him. sorry if that sounds harsh its just reality she will let the devil in if he gives her something, no matter what you say.’

A lot of this is pent up anger and disrepair; nobody to comfort her, nowhere to go, and nothing to look at but four walls!  BTW, true to my word, I gave The Madman no coffee, and told him to get out and not come back!  He doesn’t even care or know what he’s done to her or his one time friends!  How would you like to be living like this?  Is this what fair play boils down to?  What kind of answer has ever been given to any of us, except for you to turn your backs and pretend we don’t exist?  And the way things are going, you may just get your wish!  I’d like to believe someone out there truly cares and isn’t just putting on their little act to satisfy their conscience.  Would you ask a drowning seal to smile for a picture? One thing I do know.  You treat them better than us!  Hear’s another cheer filled comment from her on your behalf.  Why so?  Because this is how you make us feel when you don’t comment!  And ya know what else?  Just keep going the way you have been (you silent majority you!), and there won’t be any blog for you to post on at all…  Have yourselves another wonderful day in paradise…  Are you trying to covey the impression we’re all brothers and sisters?  any more BS you have for me?  Read, and learn what it is to be human!  You see?  Without comments, you’re just a bag of dust…

‘i was having an horrific menopausal meltdown today. it is so frustrating to to be disabled at times i loose all faith and hope i become so overwhelmed with sadness and defeat that i feel heavy from it weighing on me. i wish there was some comfort encouragement or consoling so i could feel better. menopause and chronic illness aren’t for me i need restored hope. i am defeated’

Stupid Idiots!

No Offense to all you Smart Idiots…

I know you’re just trying to be smart…  What is a smart idiot, but someone who’s learned how to fool a stupid idiot like me! Why do they call it Thanksgiving for anyway?  What do I have to be thankful for?  Poverty?  I had to settle for pigeon… It’s all I could afford!  And now I know why they call it stuffing.  It bummed me up for a week!  But no!  Smart Idiots fool all trusting saps like me by saying: ‘It’s got sage it it, so it’s good for your digestion!’  Cement has water in it, so I may as well have ate that too, cuz it’s good for keeping it soft…

What they don’t tell you is that you have to start out with a turkey, that’s heavier than your oven, and stuff it’s Grand Canyon with a stale French stick, to keep it crispy, then loosing your brains, you soak this concrete, called bread, in butter fat which softens your Butterball bread up again, and adheres it together like crazy glue, ensuring high cholesterol, and adding four further bum you up eggs, and by the time you finish up this, in my case, a gigantic pigeon, that’s what you end up looking like!  Great!  A Holiday for Gluttons!  Isn’t that a novel idea!

Only kind of Idiot wants to find a Tornado?

Once they do, providence ensures it’s always an F5!  Now seeing this enormous  600 mile an hour , swirling, huge mass of dust, debris, and and transport truck hurdling toward him out-standing in his field watching this freak of nature plowing toward him at break-neck speed!

So what’s his first thought?  [If I run sideways to it, maybe I can out run it!  Mean-while, the guy in the transport truck is honking his horn at the guy running across the field, like he thinks our idiot can really get out of the way!  So the idiot grabs onto the first thing she can find…  I rickety,old, barbed wire fence post!  You can see where this is going, can’t you!

Keli Tarp, NOAA

So our Idiot here gets wrapped up in a barbed wire fence and gets deposited beside a cigar store Indian!  So then a Detective comes along, thinks it’s a serial killing, and starts checking out all cigar stores looking for people wrapped in barbed wire…  Then after assessing all your piles of tooth picks, you all decide, lets buy a Trailer Park!

And what do We do with our collective Intelligences?

Like the second of the three, little pigs (pigs?  Little?), we build our houses out of tooth picks in Tornado Alley!  Then when run right out in the open to catch bacon sandwiches dropping from the sky!  Look!  If a tornado can exchange furniture between houses, causing people to settle for cheap sofas, it can certainly make bacon sandwiches from three, fat, little pigs!  It’s not my business, but why not just move into the storm itself and be done with it?

What’s the Porpoise to Build a City beside an Ocean?

miami_beach_florida

What we really have here, is an entire city full of big, Dummies, hanging around, waiting for a Tsunami to hit!  Now I ask you…  How many low I.Q.’s can you cram into one spot?  The ocean burps, you’re on the beach, and see a 300 foot wave coming in.  So you say to yourself: [I know!  I'll go hide in my apartment!]  What can you be thinking?  First off, you’re going to out run this wave through sand?  And secondly, I hope your apartment’s downtown cuz that’s where the wave will take you…  Put on your inflated,rubber ducks, cuz here it comes!

Let’s Live beside a Volcano…

Why don’t you just decide to die in a freak mud slide instead?  I know!  See that smoking mountain over there?  That looks like the perfect place to build our combustible shack!  ‘Now children!  I told you before…  Put that lava rock down, they can still be hot!’  You’re going to end up looking like my Thanksgiving Pigeon!  Welcome to Japan: ‘AWE! THE MONSTER!  RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!’

A World that gives You the Shakes!

How does it feel living in a world where obvious stupidity is the order of the day?  I know!  We could always search the world wide for a volcano inside an Earthquake zone, so your waitress can ask you: ‘Would you like fries with your shake?’  

Here’s a great idea!  Let’s build a bustling metropolis on something Spanish, like The San Adrea’s Fault line, pray to The Virgin Mary for forgiveness and try to creep away, carrying your favorite bowling ball, just before you fall through a mile deep fisher, trying to read a fast approaching license plate, and hoping to God it’s your car!

where-next-big-tsunami-could-strike-japan_49814_600x450

This picture above, is the aftermath of the now famous 9.0 Earthquake and ensuing Tsunami that just recently hit Japan! So yes!  It is possible to be doubly stupid at the same time!

Here’s a Woppingly Good Idea!

Let’s all board an Airplane with a drunken pilot, an inexperienced Co-pilot, there to learn from the drunk, tinkered with, by a bunch of of half witted mechanics more interested in cutting corners, and extended combination marijuana cabbage roll coffee breaks, while you find yourself reaching for the vomit bag, in a nose dive from 32,000 feet!  Afterwards, we can all look forward to a big group of sneaky Spaniards canoing over to loot our purses and wallets…  At least we can all be happy to just pollute the ocean instead of the atmosphere!  Oh yeah!  Us Idiots have genius floating out our ears!

10 Reasons to Loose Weight

  • Gain enough weight, gravity will take over, and moons will start to orbit you!
  • The Good-Year blimp lands beside you, and nobody can tell the difference…
  • There’s not enough wind for the sail on your boat, so someone suggests using your pants.
  • Pi r NOT squared…  Pi r round!
  • The moment you step out of your first floor apartment, it now becomes the second floor apartment!
  • Your garbage weighs more than you do!
  • You can run…  But only 5 feet…
  • You get on a jumbo jet, and the silly thing can’t get off the ground!
  • You get invited to a community dinner, and find out you’re on the menu!
  • Nobody knows exactly what you weigh, because weighing scales don’t go up that high.

The Mountain

Down from the river;

Comes up to the mountain!

His worship is countin’,

On all he has to say!

All that he can give her;

Pours out like a fountain!

He works on that mountain;

Until she fades away!

Where does she find the depth in me?

A pounding in my head!

If it weren’t for all of her telepathy;

This Mountain would be dead!

Magnetars and Ulirgs

A Peculiar Phenomenon

Magnetars are quite distant from us usually, and are actually pulsars in their infancy.  They are only about 20 miles in diameter and are only spinning at about 3 or 4 times per second and only last in this state for a few hundred years before they speed up to 30 times per second rotation or more, and can go as fast as 600 rotations per second!  As pulsars, they only last about 10 thousand more years.  This is because of the enormous output of energy that can outshine the full combination of millions of stars around them!  Though impressive, this is not what they’re known for, rather, they’re enormous, and far reaching magnetic fields.

360862main_311187main_fermiswift_magnetar2_HI-1

These magnetic waves extend across the entire universe!  Their great distances serve to our advantage, for though only being 20 miles in diameter, if one were a million miles away, or fore times the distance of our moon, it would neutralize every magnet on Earth no matter how strong.  Many times more massive than our sun, one tea-spoon of its matter would weigh in at a whopping 100 million tons!  Before it could suck us in, it’s blistering heat would cook us all!

magnetar_by_johndoop-d5wy73d

They end their lives quietly, having quickly exhausted all their energy. After which, their activity and strong X-Ray emissions cease.  They are in fact, a form of neutron star and it is estimated that there are about 30 million dead Magnetars in our own galaxy alone!  When supernovas collapse into Neutron stars their magnetic fields increase dramatically, forming the Magnetar.

These supernovas also form beautiful nebulae. One of the most famous of which is the Orion nebula entirely lit by the fore new stars at its center called: ‘The Trapezium’ because they form that shape; all there, because a giant star exploded, creating all the elements necessary for life and the formation of new stars, leaving behind it’s shell at the center, a Magnetar. Orion is the closest such Nebula, some 400 light years away and is visible to the naked eye from Earth, as a tiny smudge in the sword of Orion, in the night sky.

Some of these nebulae are made mostly of ethyl alcohol (beer).  In fact a cloud a mere light year across would provide every person on Earth with 300,000 pints of beer a day for a billion years!  Of corpse we wouldn’t drink nearly that much unless it were readily available to us.  So lets go get some!  LOL!  Check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetar

Ulirgs

I love acronyms!  They give you an easy way of remembering long, drawn out names.  Ulirg stands for: ‘Ultra Luminous,Infra Red Galaxies’.  So they emit light at very low wave lengths.  The unusual and peculiar thing about Ulirgs is that within our own Galaxy we form a new star on average, about once a year.  Where-as Ulirgs form about 100 new stars per year!  This indeed is star formation gone wild.

It’s suspected this occurs when two or more galaxies collide sharing all their gas causing a run away effect of star formation. Galaxies colliding must contain some super massive stars for the effect to take place…

Ulirg1

‘Although ULIRGs are thought to evolve into quasars and then into giant early-type galaxies, future considerations of the evolution of galaxies will need to take into account the impact of multiple mergers, not just major mergers between two galaxies.’

Ulirg2

These galaxies eventually become quite massive!  Though it’s still hypothesis, it appears fairly evident that when galaxies collide, a Ulirg will more than likely form.  Check that out here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminous_infrared_galaxy
