Silly things we think about

Shouldn't those of us who grew up with the practice be grandfathered in and allowed to say/write "an historic event?

I have always wondered why there are no hyper intelligent plants. I mean, why animals and not plants? Wouldn't it be useful to be a smart tree?

We have the two Dakotas
We have the two Virginias
We have the two Koreas
We used to have the two Viet Nams
If Laos suffered a split would they be the Lice?

If there is such a thing as reincarnation, then could it be possible that reincarnation is not a linear event? Could I be reborn in 1478 A.D.? That might explain why some people can predict the future . . . Perhaps they actually lived it.

Oooh! Dibbs on that novel concept!!! New WIP, here I come!

I often wonder if intelligent animals (like dolphins, etc, that have self-recognition) have a concept of gender.

That is so cool, who'da thunk this "stupid" thread would actually flirt with usefulness?

I used to wonder how cool it'd be if we took vacations to other times instead of places. Nearly a year later I saw a Family Guy in which future Stewie did this.

Didn't see that episode.
I'd go to the 1300s. Or maybe I'd try the 1400s if I was going to see my American ancestors...

Other stupid things I think about: who was the person who invented the first violin? One sounds awful when first learning, so why did this person persist?

Great topic. I love the Laos to Lice.

I'm listening to one of my favorite DVDs, the classic ABC News documentary Seeing Is Believing (about UFOs).

Okay, here's what I wonder: for decades, SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence group) has spent millions of dollars listening for ET... listening and listening and listening for a radio wave broadcast. "And if we find it, we'll give you the coordinates and you can verify it, and that's the difference between science and myth-making."

But what if the aliens tossed out their transistor radios a long time ago?

Maybe SETI should start listening for violins.

My pet peeve ran away and I'm just not sure I'm ready to risk my heart on a new one.
